A Sunday was well spent for food, art and music lovers at the Bite Me Manila Bazaar last November 20 at Black Market. The venue was transformed from the usual night scene to a bazaar filled with amazing food, art and music. What made this particular event unique was that it was very intimate and had a very relaxing vibe. I will definitely make sure I attend the next one.
I had a quick chat with the event organiser Krystle Dizon. See it below:
Why did you decide to put together this event?
Its funny because, (being a co-owner of The Bad Apple) I simply wanted to collaborate with our friends at Phat Boys. In the process of brainstorming where to sell and promote our product I figured 'hey why dont we throw our own bazaar?'. We have had enough experience from joining so many in the past that I thought it would be cool to start our own. I brought it up to my friend, Janjay (co-owner of Phat boys and now partner in Bite Me), and we decided together that we were just gonna go for it. Ironically, the event was a success but we put in too much time and that we totally forgot to collaborate!
How did you choose your vendors? Do you plan to have another one? If so, every when will youhave a bazaar?
We handpicked our vendors. I am huge supporters of all of them! I love trying new local brands and these were ones that we knew had quality ingredients, affordable and most importantly bomb af! We are in the works of planning our next event targeted for early March. Our location is a secret until everything is finalized!
Brief background of yourself and what you do besides Bite Me.
I am a mom to the coolest kid, Noa Monster. After having her I decided to start document her growth so I created and launched my lifestyle mommy blog called, Monsters and Messy Buns. Also, I co-own The Bad Apple. We are turning three in just a few days and we are so excited about it! Bite Me is my newest baby and am looking forward to growing the brand.
