I just got a great time with our tv interview in Mornings @ ANC, we were interviewed by Ginger Coronejo of the morning show and our topic is about toys, the event, the local artist and Cosplay Nation.

After the interview, host of the show Ron Cruz stormed into the room and meet up with me after he saw our interview, if you remember that we did an tv interview with Ron in Dateline Philippines in ANC years ago and we featured Transformers toys. He recognizes me and told me that its great to see the toys again here in ANC

Attending our TV guesting in Umagang Kay Ganda for ToyCon 2011

My last tv guesting in a morning show was last 2008, after that, I got allergic in any morning show because it requires me to wake up and be there at around 4am or 5am before their morning show starts on TV. I got lots of invitations last year and I manage to stay away for awhile, because my last attempt was last year in the same show and I slept too much in my bed and forgot to wake up, I even missed the show on TV.

Now is the time to attend this morning show, I haven't take a nap yet, I'm still trying to be awake til 3am. Catch us me and the organizers of ToyCon 2011 together with our top toy collectors group and toy stores, we will be promoting our event and take a mini ToyCon 2011 set up in ABS CBN.

I think the show starts at 530am-10am

check my old guesting here last 2008

Pinoy Toy Kolektors shirt release for ToyCon 2011





"Its not a toy mom...its a collectible!" PTK Shirt

Wow! I like the shirt design for this year, I saw this posted at the PTK forum site and everyone are excited to wear this shirt for the coming ToyCon 2011. I think I have two kinds of PTK shirts already, and now all of it no longer fits in my body, I need now a new PTK shirt hehehee. The designs were collaborated by the members of PTK. Really cool toy group here in the Philippines. Im not sure if Dan, the founder, will sell this in his booth. But if they will sell it, the shirt is priced at around P250.
