Playmate of the month Jessie Medina and March covergirl Sara Polverini was there to answer questions from readers and the press, sign our copies and had a photo with them. Some friends and fellow bloggers are also there (Az, Sire, Carl and more).
Got excited because according to the current EIC that they have alot of plans and parties store for the readers and fans for 2009. Let's just see and wait for it :)
March 1, 2009 and another cosplay and toy event to attend called tagcom at Robinson's Place Manila. I passed watching the Game 1 of the Uaap season 71 Women's Volleyball finals.
I arrived around 1pm and there's alot of people who attended the event that includes the cosplayers, shoppers, photographers and more. I was able to buy the Go-Onger Set at wasabi toys with 50% discount so I got the 5 figures for 1k, also got a Dekabreak 12 inches figure for 300 bucks only and lastly I bought two sentai DVD at CSCentrl (Star Ranger/Go Ranger the movie and Time Ranger DVD 1). i also took photos of the cosplayers. I'm happy to see and meet my photography and cosplayer friends in the event and also to take photos of them. Alodia was also one of the judge in the cosplay competion and she had a meet and greet event at Maxcollector booth. Glad to meet her again and her sister Ashley, happy to have my E-Games calendar signed as well.
I left around 9:00pm already because I still have work at 10pm.
Party was held at Capones Makati, good thing I was able to find a swap (schedule) and I don't have work on this day. Party was sponsored by Ginebra and it's open bar. A lot of celebrities are present Geneva Cruz, Kitty girls, Dylan, Bea So....to many too mention just check my multiply site (http://reachard.multiply.com/photos/album/188/_UNO_Calendar_Party_presents_EARGASM?replies_read=38)
The next cover girl Grace lee from Good Times With Mo is also there. After the party me and my friends went to Shakey's to grab a bite.
I can say after hearing their songs way back then (high school I think) I suddenly became a fan of Acel, Popo, Bhert and Pao with their Popcorn album then followed by another good album Press to Play where I joined the band's mailing list, started to attend their gigs and meeting new friends (Moonstareros). A lot of things happened and changed, including the change with the drummer from Popo to Bon and change of vocals from Acel to Maysh. Then the 3rd album came "Todo Combo" which is also a hit with the songs Can't Stop, Panalanging, Tadhana and the band's favorite song and so am I "Migraine". Bhert (guitars) already mentioned to me around November that they are planning for an anniversary gig and it was held at 70's Bistro last February 23, 2009. The gig was called Dekada, the previous members are their Acel, Popo and Ten and they performed the hits and favorites (Torete, Bata, Fall on me and more). Gish performed (popo's band) and Acel's band. Moonstarero's old and new one's are present and some personalities like Jay of Kamikazee, Buhawi of PNE and more.
