Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey Media Launch @ Mind Museum [★]

April 06, 2014

Last March 7, NuffnangPH invited its bloggers to an exclusive media event for the launch of National Geographic and FOX International's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

I love astronomy so it was an instant yes when I read about the invite. It's a plus also that I was familiar with the venue (The Mind Museum at Taguig) and that the launch will start on a very convenient time for me. Going there alone is one of my least worries, though I admit I was anxious because this was my first blogging event and I really don't know what to expect.

This is why when I saw that the venue is a standing cocktail party, I was surprised.

Before the screening of the pilot episode of Cosmos, everyone was given a scrumptious dinner at the venue.

I helped myself on some cocktail and chocolates! (#´ー´)旦

ONE WITH THE MEDIA -- my fellow attendees at the launch. It's legit! I'm one of them now! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ
I was so surprised to know that it was actually Chico Garcia who will be hosting the event! *starstruck moment*

After the press talk, the audience was guided to an auditorium wherein the pilot episode of the Cosmos documentary would be shown.

It was an engaging show! I am specifically at awe on how they explained the events since the big bang event through a one-year calendar.
If we were to scale the history of the universe to a one-year calendar with the big bang explosion happening on January 1, 12:00AM, human race began to exist on December 31, 11:59:55PM. - from Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
After the screening, there was a raffle and they gave away DVD players! I wasn't picked though. Haha!

Attendees had themselves loot bags from NatGeo (though I was not able to get one. It ran out fast!) and chocolates from Villa del Conte!

I am so happy I was able to attend this event. I know how awkward I could be towards meeting new people. It was a challenge for me, and I'm pleased to say that I have overcome my shyness and was able to meet two awesome people from the media!

I also had a chance to have a photo with Chico!!

I had little sleep during that time so I was actually groggy already when I went to the launch. However, adrenaline kept me awake and the curiosity to the universe fueled my mind during that night.

Thank you NuffnangPH for the invites!
