Pet Expo at MOA 2014

Pet Express held their Pet Expo on June 28 and 29, 2014 at the SMX Mall of Asia. The two-day activities showcased PetExpress suppliers and consignors. There were freebies from booths as well as stage activities. Many came from far and wide to avail of freebies and discounts.

Possitive note:
The venue was large and spacious to give all the entrants a wide berth to maneuver. There were also roving maintenance or janitors for "accidents." This activity was the best venue to meet new people and ask the various brands regarding their products. It also showed what was int he stores.

Negative Note:
Many people complained the lack of cart. They expected five hundred pet and owners to attend yet the venue only had about a hundred shopping carts. There weren't even baskets.
A lot of people also complained about the free grooming. There were only a couple in three booths. Half way through the morning, they could not accommodate until evening. This needs to be better managed in their next events.

The Going Trends:
The going trends for clothing and fashion forks into two categories: the flamboyant couture and the sporty couture. The flamboyant dressers are usually female owners pampering their pooches and kitties the same way. They love to go to grooming and want to find the best deals. They love to flock to fashionable places and just plan show their babies to other pet lovers. They are referred to as pet parents. On the other hand, the other category is the sporty pet and their owners. They want tough wear and bite proof toys. They scout for organic merchandize. They won't mind spending the extra peso if the items is worth it's weight.

Pet Lovers will Always Bond with Pet Lovers

"Pet Lovers will Always Bond with Pet Lovers" Is this statement true for you? This seems to be a fact in Last Week's Style Origin 2014 at Bonifacio High Street. Six human volunteers were paired with six doggy models. Only two humans owned their own dog. The other fours were paired on the day with a model dog. The effect was like love at first sight with humans suddenly cuddling their new found friends. By the time they reached the backstage, they were trading stories of how their new doggy friends had curious personalities.
It seems animal lovers instantly bond with fellow animal lovers. It's like an inner joy reaches out to others. Something is always there to talk about. Something is always there to be grateful about. That is their love for animals.
