Guest in ABS CBN Umagang Kay Ganda morning show - 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 production note 7

June 17th was our schedule tv appearance and feature in ABS CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda morning tv show that starts from 5:00am up to 7:30am. As usual, I tried to avoid any morning show guesting, but I placed my heart on to it that I should be present here again to promote our Toycon event. I missed the morning show tv guesting for two years already and this is my come back to join the fun the Philippine Toycon friends and community. Last time I was here is that there’s a typhoon, but I’m glad that the studio renovated a portion of the drive way with a nice ventillation and high ceiling tarp cover. It’s a perfect venue for our Toycon guesting.

Toycon x DLS-CSB BinD conference - 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 production note 6

It’s a two week preparation and planning via email for this new event, we tied up with DLS CSB Benildean Industrial Designer students in organizing a mini Toycon event and conference for June 13th. When I first received an invitation from Ram Esguerra of DLS CSB BiND team, he offered a venue for us to talk about our event and also get a chance to promote it as well. I was hesitant at first because the target date in the first place is on June 18th, and then I suggested to Ram that its better to schedule it a week before our main event. I’m glad that all is well and he got a nice sched of June 13th and book the SDA main theater as our venue. Its been ages for me since the last time I went to DLS CSB, but this is also a good chance to build new friends and partnership for our Philippine Toycon event. I learned that the Industrial Design course offers also toy designing as one of their subjects. I got the interest to know more about it, and maybe our next generation toy designer and makers might come from this school.

Its twoo weeks and 1 grand meeting, we finally pulled it off. I was there with other Toycon partners and friends to do a short exhibit, share a talk about the hobby and fandom and also we got a chance to judge DLS CSB’s very own Toy designing contest.

Aftermath: tv guesting in ANC Dateline Philippines - 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 production note 5

It’s a one day preparation for the live tv guesting at ANC’s Dateline Philippines, I’m a bit comfortable already to go solo for the tv interview and its my 2nd time here in Dateline Philippines as a live tv guest. I was hoping that the two other members of our organizing team will be with me but the schedule just hit the same date for Father’s Day, so I already expected that our daddy Toycon organizers will not be available, and since I just came back from Tagaytay, I already set a schedule with the tv crew and coordinated this with my team and they gave green light that I will go solo this time hahaha.

I know its all English language for ANC and I prepared for at least a year that I should get the best comfortable state when I go live on TV, I did some research about the show and also how their tv anchors speak and do interview on live tv, I learned that tv news anchor Caroline Howard and Stanley Palisada can shift to Tagalog language during interviews.

I will go live on TV later in ANC Dateline Philippines at 12nn - 13th Philippine Toycon 2014 production note 4


It will be my 4th time to appear in ANC news channel and 2nd time for Dateline Philippines promoting toys and everything that is pop culture and also my first time to go solo to promote Philippine Toycon.

Watch Dateline Philippines later at 12nn in ANC
