I estimated that the production note will reach to 20. but here I am already writing number 19 hahahaha. The event will be tomorrow and everyone in GHG is busy, everything is in place, the only task Im going to do is distribute these event IDs to sponsors and partners of our event.

we have a meeting David Campiti yesterday, and I gave him my progress report on the current and past situation of the comic seminar administrative job that I made, and I just told him that marketing and advertising the event is smooth and going well, and I just predict that we might go on jam packed for tomorrow.

mini stop and the mystery inside my orange bag

Yesterday I met up with Pedz for the poster of the seminar to be posted in the UST comic org, at first I didn't know that he will be one of person that I'll meet. thanks guys for promoting the seminar!

It was good meeting with Alfredo Alcala Jr. and Alex Manabat, we were working out a comic art exhibit of Alfredo Alcala Sr. and Nick Manabat. we decided to put it on a big panel boards and also re locate it so that it is visible even if you outside the conference lobby.

you can still enter the lobby, coz the seminar happens inside the hall. you can check out the art exhibit and also the booths of Guhit Pinoy and DA Meat.


dinner and analysis...

it was a busy day for me yesterday, and after my Oral Thesis Defense, I managed to complete all my task... Ok. I still have one task to do.. visit Fullybooked Rockwell, Neo Comics and Enchated Kingdom

Defense! Defense!

http://www.betterbasketball.com/basketball-defense-video/nba/basketball-defense.jpg
today is my oral defense to my thesis........

buti na lang my tips sa internet.

Top Ten Tips for Surviving the Oral Defense:

  1. Arrive early and have everything you need.

  2. Be mindful of your physical appearance. Don't act paralyzed. Try to relax and take charge of the situation.

  3. Make eye contact and connect with your audience. Avoid nervous habits.

  4. Take a moment to compose your responses. Clarify the question if necessary.

  5. Answer the questions directly. Don't ramble.

  6. Don't be afraid to correct mistakes before anyone pounces on them.

  7. Reframe negative questions before responding. Deflect emotionally laden questions.

  8. Stand up for yourself but in a positive way. Don't argue with your committee.

  9. Never lie (or you die).

  10. Tape record the discussion if possible. (You'll never remember it otherwise!)

Comic Odyssey Opening and Signing


hehheehe I was'nt there and failed to attend the opening and signing, thanks to Gerry for uploading his video blog about the signing. Its cool to see Comic Odyysey, Robinson's Galeria, I think thats the biggest comic shop I've seen here in Manila. I have to check it my self later, Il try to visit it and maybe shop for good buys of comics.

funny thing is that, at first I thought that the signing will be in Robinsons Manila.
yikes!
