My interview about original toys vs.bootleg toys (fake or knocked off toys)

Here’s an email interview from a student back in 2009, the interview is for his thesis about the art of toy collecting and also about original toys and buying bootleg toys. I can’t remember the student’s name, I accidentally found my old word documents stored in my 2009 folder, I’m publishing this now in my blog in order to shed more light about fake toys and its harmful effects to humans.

Article summary: This will be a list of tips for telling original toys apart from their China-made imitations. Since toy geeks and hardcore collectors will obviously know these things already, the article will cater more to non-collectors, such as mothers or girlfriends buying toys for Christmas presents.

Call for booth exhibitors for the 13th Philippine ToyCon 2014 (booth details and floor plan are now up!)

We already posted the full booth exhibitor registration details in our official website – www.toyconph.com , pls visit the full info page at http://www.toyconph.com/2014/04/booth-exhibitor-registration-and-layout.html

Grass fire at night

I saw a grass fire the night I went home last week, it was big and everyone at the tricycle area are worried that the grass fire might do some more damage. I think the fire was already blazing past 20 minutes but I haven’t seen or hear any fire engine coming in, probably that no one in our area reported the massive grass fire to our barangay.

spotted: Sigma 70-300mm lens for Canon SRP PHP8250

Whenever I see this in a local camera store, I’m always tempted to shift to Canon DSLR camera, I’m still hunger for a long focal telephoto lens, owning a 300mm lens is good enough for long distance shoot of sports or events, also a good lens for those who are in birding.

with a SRP of PHP8250, this is already a nice and sweet deal for amateur and hobbyist.
