In between the events during the Plenary 1, there was a video by ECPAT which captured my attention because of a personal experience. During the break, I went to ECPAT`s booth to sign up. I am honored and glad to have known this organization and be informed more about their causes. I believe that with the flourishing tourism in the Philippines, ECPAT plays a significant role in disseminating information about Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) and helping exploited children.

During the break, I also participated in Manulife`s small memory game. I won a notebook with a pen. I really liked that I won this prize because the notebook is small with sticky pads, pen and pen hanger. This will be very useful in notetaking during seminars or events.

We, Bellas, also received a bag full of sponsored items which are greatly appreciated. The bag was quite heavy. Here`s what`s inside it:

1.) Sharpie Hardbound Notebook, Sharpie Highlighter and BDJ Magnetic Bookmarks

A notebook is often a must-have item for me because I love to write and I am a blogger. It`s great that the notebook is hardbound because using the notebook a lot will often cause the edges to be dog-eared, torn or damaged immediately. The hardbound cover will help protect the precious pages of ideas inside.

2.) Wacoal Face Towel and other skincare items

The Wacoal Face Towel is soft which might be good for patting the face dry after washing the face. I`ve already tried the Lux before through SampleRoom.ph but with a different variant. The scent of this soap seems strong because I can already smell its` fragrance even outside the box.

4.) H Woman Fragrance Rolette

I`m not fond of fragrances in general because of my allergies. The scent of this fragrance rolette seems quite mild with a cool and appealing smell which reminds me of men`s hair products like gel or hair wax. The smell is quite good though.

5.) Snacks 

The bag also contained beverages and snacks which participants could drink and eat throughout the event. It included drinks which are Kratos Strong Coffee, Kai Energy Drink, Sunkist juice and Oishi Coffee and snacks such as Goldilock` Mamon, Potato Chips and La Pacita`s Prima Toast.
