Start of my toy catalog project
photo from 2008 album

I just decided to create an online catalog of all my toy collection. It will also include some of my toy gadgets, comics and play stuff. This will be used whenever a TV or print ask for a photo of my collection and will be used for their reference. Been receiving lots of request of photos of my collection and it will be for their tv or print feature.

I'll shop for items needed for a solo photo shoot of my toys and it will serve also as my practice in product photography.

here are some samples of toy photo shoot, but not yet a part of my toy catalog project

16 survivors of the Star Movies’ movie marathon

I forgot to share this news to everyone about the recent Star Movies movie marathon contest that was held in Newport Mall cinema in Resort Worlds Manila. 16 movie fans survived the whole day movie marathon and will share the 100k pesos prize pot, they survived the long wait, challenges and cool airconditioned inside the cinema. I was there to observe and all of them are so serious in watching a movie, but hey! I haven't watch The God Father movie, If I'm one of the participant, my butt will be glued in the cinema seat, but too bad that I backed out a day before the event, I just realized that the I can't survive the day without any CR break.

A series of assassinations and killings served as the climax for both The Godfather III and the fight for the P100,000 grand prize for the year’s Star Movies movie event held at the Resorts World. (more news below)

Arroyo filed House Bill 1221 or the “Toy Safety Labeling Act of 2010”

interesting news! I hope that bootlegs will be banned and other toys that contains hazardous chemical that uses to paint or mold the toys. In my recent tv interview about toys, I mentioned that parents should be aware of this and also read the labels of packaging of the toy for contents and suitable for an age group.

MANILA, Philippines – Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is pushing for a measure that would standardize the labeling requirements for toys and games of children to protect them from potential hazards to health and safety.

Arroyo filed House Bill 1221 or the “Toy Safety Labeling Act of 2010” co-authored with her son Camarines Sur Rep. Diosdado Arroyo seeking to provide the requirements for special labeling of consumer products.

The former president said the measure seeks to protect the interest of children and promote their general welfare as a state policy.

Arroyo said the state shall provide safety and quality standards for consumer products by requiring that a consumer product for children be marked with or accompanied by clear safety warnings or instructions.

“A law that would protect children against hazards and safety and the provision of adequate rights and means of redress is imperative,” the younger Arroyo added.

Busy mode for the 1st day of December 2010, I got sick last night and slept early to recharge my body, I got sick the other day and maybe the flu went back after I got tired from a long trip yesterday. I was about to attend a museum tour this morning, but I decided to sleep and rest because my body is rejecting too much work already.

I'm having a photo shoot later at 1pm with the Coca Cola Live Positively bloggers ambassadors and later on I'll race against time to attend a Samsung x Forever 21 x Fashion bloggers event in SM Megamall, Lace will be there and will present some of her style design using Forever 21 clothes and accessories, I heard it will be a contest and hope she win. (sana Galaxy tab yung prize hehehe)

And I'm busy too in managing my phone, I got lots of txt and calls yesterday and I'm having a hard time to back track all those calls and txts, some of them are event invites and others are inquiries. I sent the invites to my bloggers network for the event and now I'm busy managing my schedules for this week. I'm really excited for this Saturday because someone sponsored our Christmas shopping, super happy talaga, will post a blog on Saturday night after our free shopping.

I'm going to blog later after attending this NomNom Club Christmas dinner at SM MOA.
grabe, I have 1 1/2 weeks of blog contents na delayed, bawi ako later.

Baby Ashton is showing lots of surprises, yesterday I was about to say good bye to him and then he raises his arms, looked at me with cutey eyes and wants to be hug and carry, awwww. Baby Ash is growing so fast and so happy to see him giggle and get excited whenever he saw me.

My plan here is to share my experience in blogging, teach how to start one, and think of it as a hobby and not a money generating activity, because for newbie bloggers must learn first in managing their blogs and discover their skills first before go forward in the business using blogs. Oh okay, that's it for now, kita kits later in SM Rosario.

Chris...Iris... good luck sa atin heheh.
