Feels Hangover

It’s been four days since we had the #FeelsFest but I’m still buzzing with…well…Feels. Thanks to the continuous stream of Instagram and twitter posts from the #romanceclass authors and the guests, I still have a hangover.

So allow me to recall the highlights of the event.

  1. The preparation phase was smooth. Everything was ready by the time the guests started to come. Even the FeelsFest balloon finally cooperated (Chris had a hard time putting them up because it appears the balloons were giddy too).

  1. We were surprised by the book donations for the Little Free Library in exchange for free ebooks. Way before the event started, Jay was already looking for a box because the books from early birds started to pile up on the registration booth. Those who donated got free ebooks of their choice.

Donate your books at @iloveayalamalls @littlefreelibrary today during #FeelsFest and get #romanceclass ebooks in exchange!

I really love the halo-halo feelings c/o Miles Tan, and the heat level bookmarks and of course the chili for emphasis.

Feels. And Sili. #FeelsFest #romanceclass

  1. The games. The human bingo that challenged the introverts. And the scavenger hunt to feed our fangirling feels.

  1. The live readings. Of course. From the moment our mother hen Mina V. Esguerra introduced the idea, it has become a main attraction for #romanceclass events. This day was no different.

The #FeelsFest live readings have begun! ❤️🎤@romanceclass #romanceclass

  1. Mingling, bonding, more fangirling. Because after the live readings, we have thoughts and feels that only those who came to the event understand. And because there are selfies and groufies to take.

The #titasofromanceclass are here! #feelsfest
