Its my 2nd day and extension of my bday celebration. This time I'm with Lace and we ate pancit and we ordered pizza, that pizza from Pizza Hut with mozzarella cheese stuff crust. It was fun yesterday as we stuffed our stomachs with pizza and food.
she said that she has a surprise, and I know its a bday present, she said that I should close my eyes as she grabbed the present from her bag, on my mind I was thinking of a shirt, a watch hahhah, or an action figure. but when she told me to open my eyes, in front of me flashed a Neil Gaiman book title "Caroline", ohh..this was the book I want to buy!! I'm glad that I didnt bought one, so thats why she's telling me If I already bought one. and I didnt know that she will bought one book for my bday..thanks honey!!
it was a super hot day for us and we enjoyed the day together, but I got sick and feel drowsy after that long session. I began to chill when we are walking inside Glorietta, at first I didnt mind it,maybe that it might be cold. and then when we eat and read books in Java cafe in Powerbooks, I felt a very weird feeling, now I announced to her that I'm sick. she felt it too so after reading and drink that javapuccino. she bought me medicine and take it immediately, while going home alone I felt weak and the medicine is taking effect.
and this sunday I missed the Licofest 3 at Lico's house, its a celebration and food fest to us Artists' Den and Deviant Art, and also supposed to be an extension ofmy bday, due to my weak condition, I didnt make it and txted him that I'm sick and he suggested that I take chicken soup and raw garlic to cure me. thanks man!
and now I'm here at home recovering but almost already in my 70% full energy, coz I can stand up and walk properly, but the problem is that I dont have any taste bud to taste my food. but its okay.. Im nearly recovering and it was a long sunday of lying in bed.
and yo! Neil Gaiman update here!!
hohohoh..hope I can make it to the gathering. coz I got now my own book.
and waiting for the invitation card from the British council. I think they gonna mail it to my doorsteps or just attend and sign the attendance form.
photo of Neil Gaiman that was sent to me by the organizer in hi-res to be put on the video presentation. I think this is the reccent photo of Neil Gaiman, coz they require this photo to be put up coz photos in the net are already old.
My Neil Gaiman in Manila Audio Visual presentation will be show at the event and thanks to the organizer for trusting me to make one for them.
