E! Bloggers Ball 2017: The Brightest Blogger Event of the Year at City of Dreams Ballroom

Sent to my home is a beautiful glowing invitation sent by E! Entertainment for E! Blogger's Ball 2017.  Just like every social media influencer who received that spectacular form of acknowledgment in the industry, I got all tingly with glee.  How fortunate was I that they E! now included Food and Travel social media influencers in addition to Fashion.

As I was looking forward to a night of music and dance, I was literally struck by a Saturday night fever (my body temperature was 38 celsious hot).  Yet, how can I miss the most glorious event of the year?  With my simple dress, I made my way to the ball.  The gates were well guarded as the gala was strictly invite only.  A long black carpet led the way to the cocktail hall.  As early as 8 pm, it was filled with ladies dressed in sparkling gowns and men in their finest suits.  Such glamour was rewarded by the host E! by providing the finest way to capture their glam and beauty for the night with a 360 degrees video booth.  The cocktail bar was open with overflowing drinks from healthy beverages such as Zesto fruit juices and soya milk to alcoholic beverages such as San Miguel Beer.

After an hour, the doors to the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom was ready to accommodate its guests.  Contrasting the dominant black theme, vivid and colorful neon lights flashed exuding liveliness to the spacious room.  At the front center of the room is a well-lit stage with a huge LCD screen.  Well equipped with side LCD screens, the stage scenes can be seen from the farthest part of the room.

We were ushered to the long tables with complete dining wares.  And, hospitality fit for royalty was extended to us as servers gently pulled the chairs for us to sit and table napkins were gracefully placed on our laps.

Laid on the table was the menu for the night along with a bread basket to curb the churning bellies.

Most bread baskets though were left untouched as the appetizer was served shortly.  While enjoying the delicate plate of Tazmanian Salmon Sashimi, we were serenaded by an amazing live acoustic music.
