editing the 9th Philippine Toy Con poster

P6034093
Theres a lot of drama already in creating this event poster and it was the hardest moment for me and it was like designing the poster last year, which needed a lot of inspiration, but today the poster was a collab design with the people of the official licensee of DC Comics, so its hard to design it and requires approval from their global office. I waited a week for the added design and just used the old layout from the previous poster and pasted it here in the new poster.

I also added new toy figure images that matches the theme today, its so sad that we can put any Marvel figures and it might get a conflict with our event partner DC Comics. Last night was the last render of the poster and the sad part is that, another poster was created with out my knowledge and it will be printed as our official poster, but my layout is good as they say and this will be used for other collateral, kainis talaga.

photo above is that I'm adding the last event partner in the poster. and below is the final poster.

How to catch Christine Reyes online at Blog TV



The entire web community got a new hobby for this month, and that's watching and talking and also catching Christine Reyes online at BlogTV, I just saw this plurk post from my network and she said that it was really Christine Reyes who is online and posted a Twitter post and link to her live video streaming page at BlogTV, I was curious and logged in and surprised to see her online and talking to her fans via chat and also in video, lots of people are requesting to greet them and then I took the chance to type my name and let her greet me, too bad that my internet connection is choppy which I missed the part when she greeted me, my wife and my son. She also invites everyone to vote for her for the FHM sexiest women.

I immediately log in to my BlogTV account, I'm glad I have an account there and added Christine Reyes' profile in my network and there I will be notified via email every time she will be online. The first time I saw her online is that she's wearing this black nighties and then after some video chat, she started to remove it one by one, oh wow! it was a free show for all hahaha and all my guy friends got crazy, kinda teases us, but she told us that she is out of the country, the following day we saw her again online and preparing to attend a night out, and then the following day again we saw her jamming with Bugoy inside the bed room, singing and dancing, and couple of days ago I saw her tired and looks like she lacks a lot of sleep, and last time I saw her online was last night, in a black blouse and busy talking to people.

so there you go! subscribe to her account by adding her and be notified via email when she is live and online. watch her live here at http://www.blogtv.com/People/cristinereyes&ref=alert

Going back in time!

well, good luck to me kung ano makukuha ko damit sa baul ko.
what's your 1950's outfit tonight?

Using ASUS Eee PC 4G with Win XP

I finally installed successfully a Win XP OS to this old ASUS Eee PC, the original OS was Linux and I encounter a lot of problem especially in connecting to the internet and I loss my patience and got the tip in installing the Win XP using our USB thumb drive. I just googled and found some tips in transferring your Win XP installer CD into the USB, I just did it with my broken laptop with a defective DVD drive, so I installed a fresh Win XP to my 4 year old Compaq laptop and it works. I managed to download a software that recovers your Win XP serial number, I lost the S/n when someone threw the CD case in the trash and I'm glad that there's a software that can recover your Win XP S/n from a PC.

Facebook surf in Megamall Atrium, surfing the net using the mall's free wifi and eat in my favorite resto

Me Plurk surfing to the max at Krispy Kreme BHS

After installing everything, I went to this forum as it was shared to my by the gameops.net team and learned on how to solve that hal.dll problem in Asus Eee PC, but its hard to bypass it, but then I discovered that installing the Win XP in a USB should be inserted in the left side of the netbook. After installing, I went to ASUS drivers download and installed everything. Win XP works properly now and I love using it and carry it with me. May silbi na din sa wakas itong ASUS Eeepc 4G.

You know that its hard to trouble shoot this machine, and because of this successful experiment, no need now to buy a new netbook. Muntikan pa naman ako bumili ng HP mini few weeks ago.

And a good example here in using mobile solutions in events is the BlackBerry sponsoring the Expo 2010 Shanghai China.

Zeong production note 1

CIMG8435
Another code name for another project that the main reason I am busy today, been writing and attending meetings and my brain started to run normal and even that the sleepless night comes and priorities are coming from left to right, it means that I should not stop working and blog right now. Some people are laughing behind my back and said that I might be stuck at home taking care of my kid, and I laugh at them back and they didn't know that I'm much more busier in many things, not just in blogs or events.

CIMG8438 CIMG8429
I'm cooking up something and this is just one of the many projects I'm handling for 2010. I was riding a cab going to SM MOA and then we got stuck in traffic in Makati and the cab stopped in the middle of the rail road, we looked from left to right and see if there's any train coming, and then the incident might remind me that I should look,listen and stop .. study, observe and make a right decision.

Zeong is the code name of the project, the word comes from that mobile suit armor of Char Aznable from the Gundam anime series.
