I found myself at the Bonifacion High Street complex last thursday night. Why? Well it just so happens that my friend Charlie was having the formal launch of his newest store. What store is that? Crumpler!

Charlie has been selling Crumpler bags through his Digital Walker chain of stores. Now, he opened the very first Crumpler Boutique store in Bonifacion High Street. Crumpler is an Australian bag brand. They make stylish, rugged and durable bags for your books, computers, photography equipment and other digital gadgets.

The launch was awesome to say the least. It was held at the open area in front of the store. The theme of the launch was a street party. Food and beer was flowing. They served fish and squid balls, Burgers, Hotdogs, Fries and Krispy Kreme. How cool is that?
Hosting the bash was Gabe Mercado and Patti Laurel. Gabe is really funny and Patti, well… she’s hot. Hahahaha. I know Gabe personally and he’s one of the guys behind GeekChrous. He’s one of the most hilarious persons I know. You’ll always be entertained with him around.
It drizzled a little bit that night which prompted me to move to a covered area far from the actual party. I watched from afar not wanting to get wet. Jason and his friend stayed with us and we chatted a bit while watching the program from the distance.
We also saw some other people from PhilMUG there. We said hello to them and talked for awhile. However having some other things to do both Jason and I had to leave at 8:30 p.m.

To Charlie and company, thanks for inviting to the launch. It was a great bash. Congratulations on launching the Crumpler store. I’m sure that it will be a success. Crumpler bags are great products but more than that, Charlie’s a great guy, kind and generous and he certainly deserves all the success. More power Charlie!
