Morning sa GMA circa 90's



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNJy_vumPjM

I think this footage was way back from 1998 or 1999.
I was having a good time during the good old days with anime fans and business mates with Anima Anime during the boom of Anime in the 90's.

This is my first TV live appearance.

and yes...and so nervous that day and chilling...
malamig sa studio e
ehehehehe

you will see me here the youngling version and very thin!!!!!
yes... payat !!!

I think this was a year before AnimeXplosion 2000.
and a year that Card Captor Sakura is still in character design.
hmmm i think.

Bazaaran na! !!!!!


The bazaar started already and people are lining up to cash out and buy items that will make their xmas shopping day a good day. i dont have money now to buy gifts for people but im now saving it for the big day on december. Last saturday it was our day out shopping and Im there to check out the good finds and buys for the start of the bazaar, it seems that the bazaar are full of ladies clothes and things which is not part of my interest -- well im targeting toys, collectibles and cool gadgets for big boys like me hehehehe.


I saw one stall in the Noel Christmas Bazaar in World Trade Center that sells collectible toys, its a good find but not a good buy, coz the price is a collector price, yes!
when going to a bazaar Im eyeing only to stores who sells it more cheaper and affordable.
yup. just likethe old days when I bought one cool Batman and Catwoman vinyl dolls that I bought for only P20 each. and a Macross Super Dimensional Fortress for only P100. ( i bought them in Star City and Divisoria.)


We visited the Noel Christmas Bazaar in WTC which was a part event of GMA 7 and also the Bantay Bata Christmas Bazaar a part event of ABS CBN which was located outside the WTC and was set up in a tent. There is also a Taiwan Food and Machinery event, but we decided not to check it.

both of the bazaar requires a P50 entrance fee, except for the Taiwan event.

Outside the WTC has a big display of kinds of Santa Clause and inside of it has a big diorama of the Santa Family, I didnt took pictures of the diorama coz I heard that they charge people for a one shot and print of the set up.

there are a lot of people inside the WTC Noel and it seems that they beat the ABS bazaar outside. because the set up of the tent is not that good and not very visible for people. and i really like the style and set up of the inside of the bazaar compare to the tent.



Lace bought lots of clothes and I just enjoyed the sight seeing of items that I must buy soon.
our suki shop of Care Bears dolls was there too selling new dolls, we told the seller that we no longer buy dolls this Xmas coz the gift receiver is no longer at home ehhhehehe. so they said that it will be a good day that our wallets will never be harassed haahahah.


after the bazaar Lace Mom went to S & R, formerly known as Pricemart and was originally called S & R. it was the opening of the grocery warehouse and its my first time here in Manila to get inside... and now I know why Lace is so excited to go there..

why ?

coz there are lots of FREE TASTES of FOODS and samples of anything that can be digested haahahaha

after the buying of items, her mom won an Axe spray hahahahaha, which landed in my pocket coz im the only guy who can use it at home.

it was a very tiring day for all of us. after going home we both embrace our beds and rested the whole day...

and forgot to mention.... yesterday..me and Lace monthsary hehheheheh. going for 2 years next month! woogoohoohohh

2007 – The Year of the Wrench.
GEARHEAD coming in January from Arcana Studio!

November 13, 2006 (Kansas City, MO) -- Creative team Dennis Hopeless, Kevin Mellon & Ed Herrera introduce the world to GearHead, a wrench-wielding post-teenager with daddy-issues and more than a little pent-up aggression – in GearHead #1 coming in January from Arcana Studio.
“It’s a story about family, responsibility and the corruption of REAL power,” says series writer, Dennis Hopeless. “It’s also about a hot girl who beats people with a wrench and the nearly-naked bureaucrats who’d like her to stop - a little something for everyone.”
GearHead #1, solicited in November’s Previews (order code: NOV063289) is an origin story. Family secrets are revealed and a drag racer becomes a badass with the swing of a wrench.
“It’s like an action movie if Michael Bay cared about plot and characters,” jokes penciller, Kevin Mellon. “Think ‘Pearl Harbor,’ if ‘Pearl Harbor’ was good.”
Arcana’s take on the story:

GEARHEAD #1

By Hopeless, Mellon & Herrera

Shelby Cooper lives just outside a world of spandex politicians and electric cars - but F**K them and their world. She's a hot chick with a hotrod. She drives fast, talks trash and hurts people with a big-ass wrench. What does any of that have to do with super powers? Well...

On a mission to find her brother and in search of the destiny she never knew she had, Shelby's life is about to get interesting. Join her on a 4-issue road trip that leads from the drag strip all the way to the White House. Like her father before her, she is GearHead.

- 32-pages, full color, four-issue bi-monthly limited series -- $3.95

GEARHEAD (order code: NOV063289) is spotlighted in the November issue of Previews catalogue for release in January 2007. Ask your retailer.

6th Philippine Toy Convention 2007 production note 1


Azrael in Collectibles Convention 1999

hello and Im back blogging and writing some production notes, I was absent the i think 2 weeks coz I went off out of blogging to attend some personal and a funeral of a relative, So some of the events or projects were left hanging and now Im back to check and write it some in my book.

Last month It was a coincidence that I rode with Vic in a FX from Greenhills to Megamall, we held our chat inside the van and it was like a ToyCon 2007 meeting, we talk about some plans and me pulled out lots of questions about ToyCon 2007.

The target date is on June 3, 2007, still in Megatradehall. Im not sure if we will still get the 2 halls or go on for a day only. Megatradehall is fullybooked once again so the date we got for June is a little bit early for everyone, but its okay... it will be a good convention to start before the coming school days. We were now thinking of what kind of character icon that we can use to represent the 6th event, last 5th, we used the Voltes V and Superman as icons of the event..
for the 6th I joke about the Sinister Six to represent the 6th event hahhahahah.
for now...Im eyeing on Spider-man 3 and TransFormers movie. but how will they represent for the 6th ToyCon.?

Vic informed me that the planned ToyCon Cebu for January 2007 is now cancelled, due to having a hard time organizing the event when we are based here and we can't risk of having a bad event when someone will organize the event who is not part of our group and not familiar of the 5 years of ToyCon. So the main org decides to dissolve the plan.

I'm still looking for a fast way too about the Whilce Portacio event for January 2007. I guess we will not reach the main deadline for January, so I need now to talk to some people who will now help organizing the event. I dont have a final word yet for the DC comics convention for January, as I see now, Le Pavillion tent is nearly assembled.

Teaser poster for ToyCon 2007 will be released soon and a new website facial lift will be surgically processed by me. whew!!!

// to add this post, some company likes to propose for a anime convention for their company. Im not sure about this but I will look up first on their proposal, after the Toei and Hero event, people are now starting to have their own anime convention. I know it is a revenue generating event, but it depends on the market if they will support it and it reaches their convention quality tastes.

more news soon....

Peryahan sa Meadowood

Its a small fair happening inside the village and when we found it out we went there immediately that night, me and Lace hangs out with her mom and sister. We raided the bibingka and puto bumbong.

Perya games
welcome to the Pinoy gamble games haahaha, i love playing inside the perya, especially when I win some money and go home with a smiley face


Color game

the nature of this game is that you will place your bet to 6 colors. and then theres a dice with colors that will be pulled and when the color that you have bet appears on top, means that you will win equals to the amount you placed your bet.

here I won P60 from a P10 bet, means that I won the game 6 times
I've been playing this game since Im a kid in a perya in Sampaloc, Quezon.
hehhehe I think I mastered some tips and tricks of a perya game thats why I won.

tips: if they place already the dice on the pulling string. and you'll see the colors facing towards you., and if the color side of the dice is not visible, it means that the back side of the not visible color dice will appear when it landed on the board after pulling the string.

before the pulling string starts, you can place now your bet to the not visible color.
you have a 70 percent of change of winning the game.


Throw coins game

I dont know what they call this game, but when I was a kid we call it "hulugan ng coins" of throw coins game. during the 90's we used to throw 25 cents coins, but for today they require P1 coins only.

the nature of the game is you will throw your coin and it must land in the middle of the box, without touching the lines of the box, you can win an equal amount of the P1 coin. but if the coin lands on a special marked box, you will win like P5, P10, or a jackpot box in the middle, were you can win a whole tea and cup set of dining plate set.


Number Roulette

this is one of the hardest game to win, its just simple. place your bet to any number 1-30 and when the roulette lands to your number, you will win some prizes. Prizes are displayed in front. like cheese crackers and some dining plates.

// I was surprised on the result of this fight, at first I thought that Manny will KO Morales on the 9th round as he releases this word way before the fight during his interviews. Morales didnt expected that his fight with Pacman will end in round 3. It was a good psi war during the release of their interviews on TV. Pacman did a good punch during the start of the match.

more reviews coming up after I watched the replay of the Pacquiao-Morales III

Manny Pacquiao Crushes Erik Morales By KO

They said he could not get any bigger, but Manny Pacquiao (43-3-2, 33KOs) is on top of the world after knocking out Erik Morales (48-5, 24KOs) in three rounds in a short, but brutal bout.

The Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada was an absolute zoo on Saturday night, as thousands of Mexican and Filipino fans sold out the building to catch third bout of a rivalry that captured the attention of boxing fans all over the world.

The fight started slow in the first round, but they began to throw plenty of leather in the second round. After the two fighters began to exchange huge punches in the second, Morales went down from a big right hand while he left himself open.

They went to war in the final seconds of round two to make the entire arena erupt with applause.

At the start of the third and final round, Pacquiao began to batter Morales with power punches that had the tough Mexican on very unsteady legs. A barrage of punches sent Morales down for the second time. He was able to make it to his feet, but Pacquiao attacked him with big combinations to put him back in trouble.

Morales tried in vain to fight Pacquiao off, but he was unable to fight off, as another set of hard punches sent him down to the mat for the third time. Morales sat on the canvas, looked to his corner and indicated that he had enough, taking the full count from the referee to give Pacquiao the third round knockout win.

Choco java chips


im here in netopia csb waiting Lace's arrival from Bacolod, Im here early in the morning surfed the net so smooth. the Internet back home already suck, I dont know what happened to Globelines Broadband \,

but I think they already experience a big congested network because some PLDT subscribers shift to Globe. I just heard to my sister that Globe now accepts internet subscribers even if you have PLDT line.whoooa..thats cool. We tried to apply a PLDT DSL in Pasig but the problem is that our old PC didn't accept the installation and usb lan driver, when I found the cause of it, It convinced me that my 5 old PC needs be replaced immediately. for me my old PC is already in the state of crashing soon.
Well, every december my PC always crashes. Same with Lace's PC at home, I estimated that her PC alwats crash every Summer. Now I need to make more time to reinstall the OS in my Dell Laptop, which already starts to break slowly.
geez...I need a new PC !

I just got a word from FUDGE MAGAZINE, they say that the Comic Seminar and GHG feature will appear in the December and January Issue. wow! 2 issues in a row slam bam! Thanks to the wonder team of FUDGE for believing with me that it will be a great topic for their isssue. Also Marius, comic creator of Planet of Masochist will have a feature also.. Im not sure if it will be on December or January issue.

Im excited to see Lace again, I've been sleeping for 3 days with no bedmate hahhahaha, and I feel weird everytime I sleep alone... you know.. the "I see dead people" thing always comes to me. hehehehe hearing again whispers in my ears whenever Im sleeping

"Psssst!!!"

whooa... Im scared hahahahah but I know who's that spirit but for me Im used to it.


btw, the choco java chip above is now my favorite bev...

Az Undas 2006

It was a great ride for me and my sis getting out of the town again, and this is one great short vacation escaping the polluted area of Manila. What did I get from this trip? well I just watched 2 movies inside a bus, the movie Arthur and Sleepy Hollow. Too bad that we already arrived at 9am in Lucena Terminal so early and the movie is not yet over hahahaha, its okay I already watch that before, but its so hard to leave your seat whenever you are already been hooked by the movie even you already saw it before.

After having our short breakfast meal in Jollibee, we rode a jeep going to Tayabas, Quezon, thats our province and also the cemetery were our grandparents rested. It was so hot and Im glad that the weather is clear, we meet the 'sepulturero' who managed to clean the tombs and thanks to him for taking good care of it and painting it white. We were planning to remodeled the tomb, as we see it every year the stones are beginning to deteriorate, hmmm better to ask parents first, I was thinking of putting a roof on top of it and also some lights and table. and color it pink hahahaha.. I just saw colored tomb near us and it was colored pink.

Outside the cemetery is like a fiesta! Lots of lechon lined up, foods galore, drinks...kakanin and also flowers and candles were sold ! During our stay in the cemetery, it was a bad timing when it rained so hard... our clothes were wet, shoes began smudgy coz of the mud and after staying for almost one hour in the rain we began to moved out.

Tayabas is a one cool place! and im happy to see that there are already internet cafe in the area.

The best part of Undas for me is eating... ahhahah yes!!
we bought pasalubongs like budins and ube and we ate at Buddy Pizza, and I almost cried when I tasted the foods in the province... it was the best.. I was thinking of why is it the foods outside the city is a lot more good and tasteful. Chami and Caldereta kicks my adrenaline on the rush.

before going home we went to SM Lucena to buy new clothes to replace our wet ones and also slippers. and now I promised my self not to go SM Lucena anymore by Jeep. As you see it took us 3 jeep rides just to go there and I can't withstand the traffic in the city market and main town.
and also it took us again 3 jeep ride going back to the terminal.

whew! it was a breathtaking journey.. fighting traffic on the way home. playing Super Mario in my Gameboy Advance and Im glad that we arrived home safe. When we arrived here in Lace house, I almost dropped like a log on the bed and Lace rolled over with me hahahahaha.
