2016 Chevrolet Trax Launch Party at the Palace Pool Club

14 October 2015

It seems that October is a busy period in our household.  There have been birthdays, an out of town trip, somebody getting down with dengue (I'll get to that in a different post), and that's just for the first half of the month!  Add to the list this event that Patrick and I attended - the launching of the 2016 Chevrolet Trax at the Palace Pool Club in Bonfiacio Global City, Taguig.

Patrick has brought me with him to many of his car events.  What made this special is the location.  This was the first time we had the privilege of coming to the Palace Pool Club and the concept of this establishment was certainly intriguing.  A pool (2 actually) and a club/bar in the middle of the Bonifacio Global City CBD! :)

We arrived early around 6PM and members of the media were already starting to converge at the event.  I met some of Patrick's colleagues and it was entertaining to watch them all.  As we were seated, we were offered a selection of drinks (in the pic) to match the Chevrolet Trax's colors.  We tried Boracay Blue which turned out to be like a blue mojito.  It was good.  There were also servers going around with plates of food.  We tried the sliders (small hamburgers) and small bowls of penne pasta.

As the night deepened and the tables were filling up, we were asked to move to the area near the stage.  One of the pools was covered up  to accommodate a patio setup with tables and benches for the short program.

The program opened with a hip hop dance number.  It was quickly followed by a mini fashion show that bared the 9 different colors of the Chevrolet Trax.  The Chevrolet Trax car on display sported the Boracay Blue color.  Atty. Albert Arcilla, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Philippines, went on stage to formally unveil the new 2016 Chevrolet Trax.

 All in all, the organizers chose well when they decided on unveiling the Chevy Trax at the Palace Pool Club.  It's upscale and unique, pretty much what the Chevy Trax is all about. The waiters could've done with an upgrade on their speed quality though, there were a few grumbles that night about how the service was very slow.

Despite that, I had a great time and for more information on the 2016 Chevrolet Trax, please visit www.chevrolet.com.ph.
