Press conference
i attended our presscon for the Star Wars Convention, it was held inside SanMig restaurant in Alabang Town Center. It looks fun. it was like that we are selling something to these press people. They enjoyed our talked about Toy collecting, run by Vic Yap and Lou Garcia of Collectibles Unlimited. Gary Mayoralgo on Comic Art talk, and Meann Ortiz on talk about Star Wars Phil. I didnt talk to the press anything but i help the group explaining about fan films. coz we showed some star wars fan film via Laptop and Projector.

After the lunch we proceed to the venue to map around the exact location of our stuff. Gary designed a new layout for the Jedi Academy, 3 more days to go for Star Wars con.

Horror in Makati
I was in ARiel's studio doing some net stuff for the con. JAclyn invited me to a dinner. i went to her office, that was 11pm. I was freaking out when I rode that elevator. i was paranoid a little bit. thinking that or i feel that someone is with inside the elevator. damn...thats the result of watching too much ASian Horror flicks.

Dine Time
its fun to be with Jaclyn again. thanks !
miss ya so much. i think our last dine out was last last year.

to their booth and start selling their stuff to me. they got a kick ass style in comics. also i stayed for a moment at the Ground Zero comics booth, then i roamed around just to shake hands. and meet some people i know in this world. im glad that some of them take pictures of me and offered pic contributions for the omake news phil.

Homebase
then i saw the Glasshouse graphics booth. then i transfered at their booth and made it my homebase haehehe...i accompany wilson, eugene, dennis and the others to their booth. they were selling comics and do comic character sketches for only P50 and sell prints for P100.

cute cosplayers
my eye got caught on those Final Fantasy X cosplayers...man..they are a real beauty. they look like life size action figures. Yuna and Riku are the crowd favorite that day.
