Toycon prod. note 6


to the batmobile !...lets go!

May 2006 is near, and its about time to speed up our marketing butts for the convention, and its great that for now we got lots of progress, sponsors are already interested and some of them joined the toycon band wagon, everyone is so excited for the new 2 day event decision. Too bad that we never allowed already a product lock out for online gaming, coz this year, we are opening the band wagon for everyone., its hard to have a product lock out, as I explained last prod. note 5., we wooo weoooo weooo..

last Friday was our meeting, and i didnt attend it coz I have to concentrate and do some chores inside my bedroom cage, so I txted them all for some updates and now Im waiting for the latest progress of our team.

I was informed that day that the cosplay rules was copied from another event, I burst into flame after hearing that out, and I panic immediately and do some plans on how to take that out from the website, coz Im stucked in my OJT and no internet plugs available for me, so what I did is that I send out the task to my cosplay contest organizer to fix that out and fix their problem.

on that day I didnt know and wasn't aware of the so-called-plagiarism incident.
On the same day, I check it out and managed to removed the rules online, thanks to my cosplay team, then I analyzed and saw some not-so-similar mechanics of the contest. Although that my team used it as reference, or a guide, but they forgot that having an original contest is one of my priority. So i told them to removed it all and do another set of contest rules. They apologized and told that never to do that again.

whew! a short range fire, Im glad that everything is okay, coz the other event organizer are screaming already to take that out hahahahahah....
its funny, coz it happened already and this is the 2nd time (the last time, I was the one who complained to take the rules out, but after that told them that we will be allowing them to use our rules if we act as a judge in their contest)

right now.. a new set of rules will be uploaded.
take note, we were the first to include in the contest rules that real live weapons and harmful props are prohibited in the cosplay contest.


magazine ad plan

after that fire in the hole, comes another graveyard job.
I just found out the we haven't done any magazine ads. I was informed by our partner that the ads are needed before May 2006, for their May issue.

good thing that I got the PSD files of toycon and was assigned to the ad job, coz no one in our team can handle that fast so this coming monday, the magazine ads for Toycon is finished.
toink!!! deadline is on wednesday, so I expect that I must finished it by monday.



smiley !!!

hhohohoh.. check out this lil cutie toy.
I got this yesterday before watching Silent Hill in Glorietta 4, people from Yahoo Phil are having their marketing gimik, they were giving this toy smiley, that if you shake it you'l hear a laughing sound. hahhahhaaha..... its so cute!

I talked to them and gave my contacts coz I 've been thinking of getting Yahoo Phil. to be our partner or perhaps a sponsor for the event.

also..Im still waiting for Youtube.com to reply. coz I invited them also for the fan film contest.

ehheheh.got news that Im making a new logo for the event, we already discarded the "5" logo that spoofed the logo emblem of Superman.
reasons?? : the last son of Krypton told us to removed that and he said that he will visit us at the event ( did you get what I mean??!!!)


whew! till next production note!!!

Toycon prod. note 5


I just found out that we need to adjust the floor layout for an incoming exhibitor. So we decided to put everything at the event, I'm expecting a big crowd this June coz everything is in there and all hobbyist, fans, and collectors will strom the entrance gate once again.

before the meeting I was hanging out with MC of TFPH for a Sitti Navarro mall tour in Megamall, I'm planning to talk to her manager and arrange some live acts for ToyCon, MC already sent out the invitation and it seems that they are interested. too bad the mall tour was postponed that night and was moved this friday.

Then MC treated me dinner in Rai Rai Ken, hehehe.. my choice, it was like floating in my seat after seeing my Gyudon smoking with beef and eggs. while MC here enjoys the walang kamatayang Tonkatsu, during our dinner Henry de Dios joined us and we discuss some parts for the cosplay and marshal duties, then after dinner we went all together for the meeting.


it seems that we need to boost more marketing power and everyone is already excited.
i haven't started my part yet coz Im still stucked in my OJT and been forbidden to use a computer at night at home in Cavite. so to complete all my task and job, I do this every morning and sometimes at my OJT.

Im now targeting a Mascot fest at the Toycon, kids and parents will love this. So today Im scouting some mascot groups and owners to participate this June.

also at the meeting I met Unleashed, moderators of the forums Pinoy Toy Kolektor. Its funny that he was there beside my seat and then we talked about some toy activity and he showed me some entries of the Pinoy Toy Kolektor banner contest.

we are studying and waiting for another cosplay contest. A sponsor might host a SUPER HEROES cosplay contest for MARVEL and DC characters only. Im not sure if it locks to DC sueperheroes but I know it has some relation to their products.

The Fan film rules are still in production, but got already the dropping point of entries.
also still waiting for Comic Alley's response in the involvement to our event,.

also I just heard that a customized Wonder Woman lifesize figure will be exhibited.
wow...thinking of a lifesize fig of a Justice League figure...

Media Fest
The Power of Radio and Print


i forgot to upload this event happening right now in Makati.
i might drop by later after my OJT before going to CSB.

I might learn something here so for those who will attend....see ya !!!!

We Belong Vs. First Love
Toni Gonzaga vs. Utada Hikaru PART 2


ok here's another investigation and here we can now analyze by watching and listening to both music style and arrangements, minus the lyrics.

here is the music video of WE BELONG, performed by Toni Gonzaga
got it from www.youtube.com

click here and watch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gN2FtasS4Y


a comment by force99

Sigh, kinda disappointing that it HAD to be similar with Utada's First Love (listen to both choruses). We do have the ability to be original. Im sorry, but this song falls on the same category with Dice & K9's ITSUMO and Orange & Lemons' PINOY AKO. If this is the songwriter's fault (some singers have people write songs for them) then Toni's voice is wasted on a copycat tune.


and here's FIRST LOVE music video, performed by Utada Hikaru

2nd Philippine Blogging Summit 2006
some photos



I took a 4 hour experience at the 2nd Blogging Summit, it was funy at first coz I landed in a wrong building and room, I mistakenly entered a Bar Exam review seminar and not the summit hahhaa. so i went downstairs and asked the guard where the venue of the summit and then they directed me to the other U.P. College of Law bldg.

at the Summit, Mike Abundo saw me standing at the back, he approached me and then we began our own summit at the back hahahaha, it was during the break time when we exchange some tidbits of info from the blogosphere, too bad that i missed his lecture. He told me some tips about that tag that you can see and monitor people who blogs about your site or your name.
He said that he will upload soon the hacked code in his blog www.mikeabundo.com . Running of side jokes like that PC magazine writer who earns 1 million bucks a month or is that a year? for writing, blogging and talks. Then on the other side AV Idol girls came into our topic.

Then he introduced me to people from Globe telecom, it was good approach coz they recognize the ToyCon and said that they were interested in joining the event. so callcards were exchanged. poor me I was so unprepared and never produced any copy of my callcards.

during that conversations I was asked by an old lady to tone down my voice coz we didn't noticed that Dean Alfar is already starting his lecture. I stopped and realized that I have to take my seat and go for a quick mental meal.


Dean Alfar, Write here, Write now: The Author as a Blogger

joking on a typo of his slide " Do note fear tomorrow" (supposed to be, Do not fear tomorrow)
also a good example on his keynote about avoiding editing too much on the blog entry. He said that minor typos is okay and better be confident on what will be readers comment in your blog.

it was a good learning experience that day and lots of youngling bloggers take note all what the lecturer said and displayed.


Jonas Diego, Comic Books and Blogging

A lot of people got curious on how to deal or to make comics in weblogs. Jonas showed and introduced to the summit attendees the use and advantage of becoming a comic blogger.
at the end of his talk, people asked lots of questions about the production of web comics.
by that time a blogger near me told me that they are making their own web comics. I told them that I know some people who can help them in creating one, but for a quick tour, Jonas showed them the steps for making a comic blog.

After their lecture, I immediately packed up and head straight home in order to catch a time table for my other activity that day

congrats to all attendees, lecturers and organizers of this event.
the learning experience is the best !!!!

lets all blog now !!!



i got few photos for this event.
I was disappointed in my battery that fails and was exhausted for a few shots.
I just found out that my cheap Php 70 battery charger is already grounded.

more photos here

The Last V Stand

its a long journey yesterday having 3 trtips just to make it my day busy.
but before I started my adventure, I dine first to Mcdo just to fill my empty stomach with junkfoods and to taste the pleasure of paid advertisement of my blog. its a wonderful experience and I just wish that more company and people advertise here so that we can lift each others chair for both success in the web.


Rewarding myself a Big Mac. papara-pakyaw !

thanks to 888.com for the advertisement link here in my blog, and for that I tasted a cool paid ads in my blog. and the last of it went to my Big Mac.



my first stop is at the PinoyExchance office in Makati, claiming my winning ticket of Ice Age 2, in there I met Ada and Ryan, both forum moderators of PinoyExchange. its nice to meet people behind the monitors. after claiming my prize.

we talk about some goodies that they gave away last contest.
one is the V for Vendetta Mask. I toy around wearing the mask, even that I didn't own or win one of the 30 limited mask in the Philippines. I got the chance to hold it and wear it for quick photo shoot.

so to close my V for Vendetta MANIA in my blog.

here's the last photo blog entry that will be the main epilogue of my V for Vendetta craze.



Azrael got a chance to be V for one minute.


oh hell yeah !!! Az as V of V for Vendetta.
check out my rosy checks hahahaha
i looked like a wrestler !

thanks to Pinoyexchange.com

The Long Lenten Week

Lenten week is finally over, and the hot sun still reigns this month, everyone is already heading to the beach, while others go to coldy areas.

I just spend the holiday here in Cavite, and with Lace we spend the boring hours watching TV, surfing the net, and planning to go swimming in our dreams haahaha.

so what did we do this crazy weekday?


The Lace hot Cake

She made hotcakes in the morning for our breakfast, I was surprised to see this cake pops up from my monitor. We cook every morning after spending a coldy sleep in an airconditioned room. whew! that was the best part...hugging each other to warm ourselves during the coldy night.....Cold summer night hahhahaha...


Ice Cream con saging.

Lace's mom got the idea of putting ice cream on top of a sweet banana, instead of ice, we just put some blocks of Coffee crumble ice cream. It was a sweet, chewy, cold meryenda.


while ago during our Easter Sunday mall and her derma visit.
we got a good taste of this takoyaki near the SM grocery. this time I learned to sliced the takoyaki before eating... the grub is extremely hot and it damages my taste buds the last time I accidentally ate that in hot mode.


scream....hrrrrrrr hrrrr hrrrrr


A wookie lollipop

I saw this in store and It was cute when I tried to press the button.
the lollipop candy rotates. while the hand moves pointing its gun.
hehehe... we snoop some cutey candies at the candy bar in SM.



At last! I have found it!
the lond lost sword of Clavio. hahhahaha
at last a very perfect sword toy replica of "PANDAY", i've dream of having this sword since I was in my elementary days. a true pinoy and fan of PANDAY must have this..before those kids ran sack the Toy Kingdom.

price : Php 200.

oh yeah! someome might cosplay PANDAY in a upcoming birthday party haahahah


just press the button and it will light the sword with a stinging sound.


yesterday during the Black Saturday.
The mall is finally opened after its two day vacation.
we got a chance to cool ourself down in a cool ventilated mall.
then we watched "EIGHT BELOW" movie. It was a very good film.
I never seen husky that's so smart and even survive the antartic.

now..I search for the real story of this true to life movie.

thats one Lenten weekday experience.
hahahahah
