I just noticed that everyone is writing their own year ender blog post and it will be great if I have my own year ender blog post. It will be from a good or bad post, hope you can appreciate this little flashback moments that I posted in my blogs.
It was good start for 2008, my pop culture blood is oozing and got excited in these movies like Cloverfield, I am legend, TDK, Aliens vs. Predators and many more. Comics news were booming and the local komiks scene is getting hot every week. Also I just can't forget the first vehicle accident we just experienced and thanks to God that we are okay and alive that year, if not, I may not meet you all for 2008.
It was the month of my early days of organizing the Toy Con 2008, massive updates for the comics and toys are been posting almost every day. Music events and movie premiere are healthy in my network, so I accept a lot of invitations whenever i receive one. Also met Happy Slip for the very first time, and my adventure in meeting her is the best, plus I got a chance to do a live streaming for her fans all over the world. Gadgets and Tech is the month of Feb. and viruses are on the loose and gave me too much problems. Also its Lace's day, did something for her birthday and also a funny video for Valentines day. NBN deal scandal is hot on this month, the cyber kids didn't let it loose made some photoshop fun on those who are involved. It is also the month were the Philippine Bricksters for LEGO is born.
Is the hottest month ever, and I'm refering to the weather and not the topics ahhaha. Met Gary Lising for the first time,and because that I love green jokes, we bought two of his books in Powerbooks. The month of my rest day, can't believe that I just got my own rest from all work and projects. Me and my pet cat Pulot, got immortalized in Andre Estillore's comic strip in Inquirer Libre, I'm very happy to discover it because my lovable pet cat is included in the comic strip, and it is very rare to see both master and pet in one comic strip. Just got a big gaming event project, it was my supposed to be 1st gaming event, but in the end the proposal didn't worked well with my middle agents. I created this funny video about breaking up with my girlfriend and it reaches a lot of issues, discussions and page views ahhaha. Got to meet Yeng Costantino for the first time and thanks again for Yehey.com for inviting that day, it was nice to meet her and eheheh cute!. The month also my Incubus mania, and I almost forgot the world in spinning after watching their 2nd concert in Araneta Coliseum, it was the best and miss the band after it.
Its the month of blog events, and this mark my 1st food blog event and met a lot of great bloggers in the field. I love our team and I miss them big time, due to the big team work and coordination to each other. I wrote a review here about the maiden issue of Playboy Magazine Philippines and I didnt expect that review will reach the publisher and it was okay and got a big thank you from them. Just attended the Guiness Book of World Record attempt for the largest Volkswagen parade, I learned many things in that event and it was a great inspiration for me, did a great coverage and from that coverage it landed in print, tv and internet. My first experience in attending the Animax Fashion Ability, such a great event and me with my sister and friends as VIP, thanks to Animax and it was nice to meet the people behind the anime cable channel, this event is one of the start of building our relationship to each other in future events and projects.

And got to meet Kitchie Nadal again for this month, and it was great and got invited to her album launch at the Church of Union in Makati. This month is the hectic month of me, because the next month is the Toy Con and I'm going crazy already in the production and planning for the biggest convention in the Philippines. And been experiencing a lot of tantrums from a lot of people because of miscommunications and non-proper coordination with me. the month of big challenge. Also the month as I concentrate and be a band manager to Insanara, which kinda didn't work out well because of my busy schedule.

And also a big press release to all in having my last dance in being involved in this event. A massive food blog events and party for this month and I just can't believed that I attended it all. The focus of too much events organizing and tantrum made a big effect in my focus in my work, but just nailed it and convinced myself to have a rest and refresh, to have a big start in having a new life.

I was invited to be a photographer for the taping of the Pops in Seoul in Manila, and I'm happy to be part of it and my contribution as a photographer to everyone, met VJ Isak and Evan, and I just can't believe it that they are here, and I'm glad that familiar in their show because I used to watch it sometimes whenever I switch channels. It is also my first time to join in a FHM autograph signing event with my friends and I just can't let go Diana Zubiri and want to meet her personally, it was a fun experience and it devirginizes me as an FHM event attendee.

For the comics side, it was revealed in the comics that PGMA is a skrull ahaahha, it sparked a media interest and it was cleared by the artist Leinil Yu afterwards and explain on its appearance, before it reached some bad press about it. Got invited again in doing a live video streaming of a Guiness Book of World Record attempt by Levis 501 unbottoned, and it was a big success, because few months ago, it was declared that the giant billboard is a world record for having the biggest sticker in the world. This coverage landed on print and also on TV. Our first Eastwood City activitiy with the bloggers started off with the Gary Valenciano concert, it was great show and started to form this Eastwood City bloggers and photographers club, which I haven't started to launched it formally.

This coverage made it on tv after my blog post months later, and its my 3rd world record moment. We watched the band Third Eye Blind at the kick off party, which we bloggers started the buzz online about the rumor and news about the concert of the band. Still the month composed of scandals and issues that revolves around the net, and also the fun in staying in Plurk hehhee.
