Highlights of Hivelloween

If you browse on my reblogged posts, you would see that our members already highlighted some experiences that happened during this event on their blogs like the runway where participants showcased costumes, presented the contestants, announced the winners of the best costume, and two runner ups, some fun games, the raffle draws and the scrumptious food we all shared.

So what I am going to highlight in this blog is about the true experience of sharing Hive in the physical world. Seeing the beautiful smiles of everyone that night was such an amazing feeling and a privilege of being a Hiver/Hivians. And we hope to bring inspiration and happiness to all Hivers even if you were not physically present. You can check out our live video for that night in case you missed my tweet.

Another highlight is the collaboration and camaraderie that our team has shown because everyone shares ideas and creativity, and volunteering in some tasks where they showcase their own talents- This is what made our event a real success.

Feedbacks

If you missed the feedback from our Hivers/Hivians, here are some quotes from them and you can also check out the whole post by clicking on the link:

“But a week ago, I just had my first-ever-halloween-party-in-costume!! 👻 Finally! It was a courageous thing to make (and challenging, lol) but at the same time a dream come true. I have always wanted to experience halloween parties but never really had the courage to dress up or join one. So I'm definitely not forgetting this!” -

“Even if I'm tired I am still excited about the Hivelloween event wherein I checked costumes at malls and on Shopee which I did place an order but unfortunately the seller cancelled my order a week before the event so I was left with a decision to create my own costume since I am also into crafts so at that moment I just checked the items that I already have that I can use on my DIY Costume.” - @cheerupwithjl

“Actually, I am not part of the Hive Cebu Bloggers Community. I am super blessed that I was invited and sponsored by @purepinay @explorewithsasha. 🥰 I am super thankful to them! 🥰” - @shikika

I also mentioned on my previous blog that I would like to include here some feedback not just from the Hivers/Hivians who joined us that night but also the people who helped us make this event extra special.

One of the banquet team, Joepher, had expressed his gratitude for choosing Harolds to celebrate our Hivelloween party. He shared how it really helps them (the staff) to keep their job because ever since the strict lockdown in the Philippines, life is really hard, emotionally and financially. He added that whenever they have this kind of bookings, this gives them more confidence that the company will keep them longer because they need them to serve the clients.

Just hearing this made me feel good. It is such an honor to also be able to help my fellowmen in this tough time in our own little ways without even realizing it in the beginning. Not only did we bring happiness and motivation to our fellow Hivers/Hivians but also outside Hive. I know we cannot help the whole world and the idea of making the world a better place might be naive for some people, but we sometimes don’t realize the small impacts that we bring to others when doing something that will make them happy, even if it’s temporary. So, it was like killing two birds with one stone, being able to bring happiness to our fellow Hivers and our fellowmen outside Hive.

Below is the summary of the event details:

Takeaway for everyone who would like to organize this kind of event in the future

The summary of the event details above is one of the examples that you can use for your next Hive event. One of the foundations of making the event successful is collaboration. We can never make everything perfect like we always plan, so being flexible and sharing common goals and best interests are really important to achieve success.

Although we don't like the idea of rushing things these are some variables that taught us how to become more flexible in dealing with this kind of situation. Like when we had to move the scheduled time from 3 pm to 4 pm instead so there would be enough time for everyone who helped do the decorations, do their make-up. And leaders sent a note on the group chat about the change of schedule. I believe acknowledging the things that were inevitable and focusing on those that we can control in some situations help us not just overcome but embrace those challenges. That is why even though the double booking was quite a challenge, we appreciate Harold's banquet team for letting us use the venue until we finished our party and until we had no energy left, lol! And they also let us check out the next day at any time we wanted to.

We also shared Hive awareness in the physical world. And yes we have been doing it for a few months now and with the help of @hivecreators and @samgiset who designed our Hive Ids. People and local businesses are now taking us more seriously. Rica, @sassycebuana, and I had the chance to meet the four managers of Harolds Hotel the day after our Hivelloween event! While wearing our Hive Id, we were proud to stand in front of these people from the corporate world and answer their curiosity about who we are and what we do. We represent ourselves as Hive Cebu Bloggers.

We recently created an email: [email protected] and a direct contact number for our @hivecebubloggers community business card that we will be handing out to more businesses in town whenever we do meetups or Hive events to spread the Hive awareness. Although there is more to this like and will share about this project in the future. Everything is a constant experiment.


Also, if you have experience in hosting events like this, your feedback and tips are highly appreciated!

I always admire your thoughtfulness and generosity Gil. As a former worker of the hospitality industry it brings us so much joy whenever we have events and when people appreciate our service. Especially now that tons of people are losing their jobs because of the pandemic. Our events might be not as grand as others or the money we put out is not as big as other events, it surely did fed and helped someone working in the industry. This is one way to indirectly help others.

It is an honor to help be able to help and I more motivated to keep going because of people like you who believes in my real intentions are. As I mentioned in our group chat before, and not to always justify why I share my time and resources, I'll do my best to help in my own little way.

See ya tomorrow! 😉

The effort you guys put into the Hivelloween event and all the fun you guys had there is a great indication of how the Hive Cebu Bloggers Community really cares for the connection within Hivers rather than the monetary value that Hive provides. Such a superb community!

thank Carlos!

I remember when you approached me on my fb page and my email after you read one of my posts, I wasn't there right to assist you right away but I was so thrilled to know that you were able to get here before we stared our one on one coaching about the basics of Hive and I thought I failed on this part already but then again I cannot multiply myself in just seconds lol.

I learned that not all the time medium matters, I think its the better intention and inspiring others. Thank you for sticking around and joining me in this journey! ❤️

This event wouldn't be possible if not because of the people but without you, Gil who pushed this to happen is one of the reasons everyone made this possible. Your leadership encouraged everyone to be part of it. For me, it's nice to see events like this. This is what community means in the hive. It's not just about the earnings to earn but also to earn friends that can be real.

It will not always happen but for sure in another time because they loved the feeling of having a party like this. Well done.

Aw! thank you this uplifting comment, Paul!

I hope you can join us on our Xmas Party. We are working on the invitation card but am personally inviting you already. It'll be on the 11th of December. Venue will be announced once I book the place but we want more people to be able to join so we're to look for a more affordable place even if we just do pot luck coz we know how that will all be spending money for our family and friends this Holiday season. ❤️
