* Meet and Greet with Playboy June 2011 Cover Girl Aubrey Miles

Because of the recent typhoon, the Meet and Greet of June cover girl Ms. Aubrey Miles was moved to June 30, 2011 at Odyssey Gateway Mall Cubao.

Playboy asked me to cover the said event. Playmate Sky (Playboy Playmate and 99.5 RT Jock) hosted the event. The event started around 5pm and the fan had their chance to have their Playboy June 2011 signed by cover girl Aubrey Miles and Playmate of the month Allysa Samonte. Other playmates was also present in the event like Plamate Billy, Jobie and Survivor Echo Caceres.

The event lasted for an hour and glad it was organized. Glad my copy was also signed. The photos that I took would show for the August 2011 issue.

* Toycon 2011 (Day1)

Toycon is one of the most awaited toy convention in the Philippines every year. What's special this year is because it is Toycon's 10th year.

I did missed a lot of Toy Conventions recently like TAGCOM but I told myself I won't miss this one. The convention doesn't only involve toys but also cosplay competition. Entrance is 100 bucks per day and the convention is during the weekends, early bird tickets were sold Friday to avoid the long line.

I have work the previous night from 12am-9am so after my shift I went home and rest for a bit then went straight to SM Megamall. So far this is the biggest Toycon ever because they occupied 3 megatrade halls. I can say i missed attending conventions and I was glad I saw a lot of friends in the event. Alodia and her sister Ashley was also their in the Maxicollector booth to have a meet and greet with the fans. Toys for sale and customized toys can also be seen in the event. I arrived around 2pm and took photos of cosplayers, friends and also the toys. I wasn't able to buy a toy this year. It was a jam packed event and a lot of people came in the said event.

* DLSU Centinnial Celebration (1911 - 2011)

De La Salle University is now celebrating it's 100th years anniversary from 1911-2011. I arrived at the DLSU campus around 5pm and the band Peryodiko is already performing in the Yuchengco Hall. A lot of students and visitors visited the campus to celebrate and everyone is wearing Green. The weather is not that good because it's raining a little but still the party continues.
I asked my friend Triff who worked in DLSU before who is also a Photographer. We are able to experience the heat, rain and the fun of this event. I was glad to see some of my friends who are also there to party.

A quick fashion show after Peryodiko performed then the crazy performance by Sandwich, Kjwan and The Dawn.

* DPP On a High 5th Anniversary

It was my 2nd time to attend a DPP event. I can still recall the event last year and it was crazy. Last year I had a shift the night before the event from 9pm-6am so after my shift I went to the venue right away which is Fully Booked Boni High Street. I arrived around 7:30pm and the line was long already and I think my number was 200+. Registration started 10am so all of us waited until 10am came and it was damn hot. So I told myself that next year I would prepare for this event.

A month before the event I already filed a leave for 2 days (The night before and the exact day of the event) I woke up 4am and left the house around 5:15am and I arrived the venue around 6:15am (phew I was early) and it's better this time because the line was short (maybe because I am early). I was able to see my friends in the event and I was able to attend talks from famous photographers.

I selected the following photographers

Andre Per Hoffman / (Professional Travel Photography) - A German Photographer and was featured in Nat Geo and international magazines. Very funny guy and a very good photographer.

Manny Librodo / (When Travel Meets Fashion) - A famous Filipino Photographer who loves to travel and take photo of himself. Now he is one of the known Photographers in the world.

Raymund Isaac / (How to shoot celebrities and other headaches) - A Filipino photographer who is an expert with Fashion photography.

I was able to attend the live shoots and live judging as well. A very good photography event and I can't wait for next year.

* Playboy Philippines 3rd Anniversary

I was ask by a friend from Playboy Philippines to be the Official Photographer for the 3rd Anniversary exclusive party for Playboy Philippines. Event was held at Hyatt Hotel Manila and started around 9pm. Playmate Sky and Echo is the host for the event.
