Geek out Sunday!

Attended Renaissance last Sunday at Megamall, which is like Manila’s own Comic Con. Sharkboy and I literally geeked out at all these Comic Book artists in one place, mingling and being so nice to all their fans.

Love your own! These Pinoy comic book artists are unsung heroes. We should pay tribute to them more. Do you know that a LOT of our artists have worked for Disney, Pixar, Marvel and DC? We need more publicity for these guys. Let’s give equal exposure to them for being so great and whooping some serious ass in the international comic book/cartoon scene.

Anyway, here’s our Geek Out Sunday, in pictures.

Started the day with a delicious Almon Marina lunch.

Then a quick visit to Toy Kingdom

Sharkboy photobombing The Hulk.

Off to Renaissance! Here’s the original Alaska boy art. 😀

First “victim” of our geekery: Budjette Tan of Trese fame!
We had him sign ALL of our Trese copies. WOOT.

Plus this:  The Last Datu

(He has no idea he’ll be ripped in half in Siege#2!)

Some Kate Beckinsale for you guys. 😉

Here we go. Paolo Fabregas and LEINIL YU!!!


Jiggy Cruz was there too!

Kajo Baldisimo!

Leinil Yu + Gerry Alanguilan (who drew a chicken head on my Elmer copy!)

We topped our day with YUMMY sweet treats from Iceberg’s.

Aaaand THAT’S how geeks spend a perfect day. ❤


Hihihihi =)

I thought of going back to the first ever survey I answered on my blogs, and found this. I went ahead and answered it again, just to compare how I changed in the almost three years since I first answered that survey. My present answers in ALL CAPS. 😀

Dear Chuvaness,

Not everyone has watched the whole season of Gossip Girl. Would it be so hard to put your Gossip Girl spoilers under a freaking LJ cut?

I like your blog, but please refrain from posting spoilers without warnings next time. 😐

P.S. I can’t wait to eat at Pepper Lunch. It looks really really YUM.


Dear Maria Sharapova,

Please stop choking on your matchpoints. Or if you intend on doing it, please don’t let me stay up late to watch you.

P.S. I really like your earrings. 🙂
