#ILLUSTRADOSQUADGOALS : The Dream Team For Social Media Madness

Hailed as the selfiest people in the world, Filipinos are among the most – if not THE most – social media savvy people in the world. Naturally, we are good at curating our content, whether it’s about fashion, food, lifestyle, street photography, portrait, or even the simplest things. We can turn “ordinary” into “double tap-worthy!”

Last night, Dubai-based Filipino social media superstars flocked to Fumé Neighborhood Eatery in Pier 7 to gather for the first ever Illustrado InstaMeet, aka #IllustradoSquadGoals. It was just a casual dinner turned into an Instagram-able fun get together, thanks to all the social media influencers who took the time to eat, chat and take selfies with us.

Check out the wonderful night that was, in photos taken by Mark Maniego. Scroll down and see what happened and who’s in attendance to your not-so-usual Monday night. We wish all Mondays are like this!
