So we've decided to speed it up a little with as less explanation and non-sense as possible.
So here is your SSM! Monthly Report (2013-2014).
The event that WE got banned from.
It's as crazy as not getting picked for the SULYAP 2 anthology...wups!
But lucky for us, we had genuinely caring friends such as ROB & APOL.
But alas, we're here and time to thank the following individuals.
the cutest couple of them all, Mervin & Princess
OIL ON CANVAS
Our favoritest panel ever.MWAHAHA idols, MARCUS NADA & BRU SIM.
And this is how we spent our Christmas.
Teaching indeed has it's own rewards....LITERALLY!
Most of which were hair care products(and most of which were for girls even) and an alarm clock!
You guys are the best!
Not knowing that we were gonna receive anything for christmas. We initially bought this OISHI BIG BAG.
But the nifty Oishi Tin Can is for keeps and it's well worth the entire purchase.
Ok, enough goofing around. Back to the very first event of the year.
which took place in De La Salle University - Manila.
The venue was pretty spacious and suprisingly enough it looked more like an actual CONVENTION rather than some crummy-ass school fair.
So YAY to this really really pretty lady right here.
Some events are good and some events would be not so much.
This would rank as ok since they venue makes up for the lackluster sales.
Which is quite understandable since we're practically nobodies and if it wasn't for
ROB's introduction, it would've even remained that way for the entire day. So three cheers for ROB!
And besides we are not in the proper position to complain since the booth was practically given to us by Rob for FREE and out of the kindness of his heart. So to bash the event right out would be disrespectful and downright mean.
And besides, we did receive complimentary mineral waters.
OK NA SANA YUNG INTRODUCTION....
but wait let's let him talk right after we raffle some unnecessary prizes.
Making them real life heroes rather than just costumed individuals.
*that's a KICK-ASS reference, for all you ignoramuses!
VA-VA-VOOM themselves (Picture unavailable, darn it!)
Oh wait, there it is!
Save Image as, type a clever title,crop-crop here and THERE!
Was late again and was made even more embarassing when the entire bus of people had to wait for our tardy ass to arrive.
Guy coughing out a lung is still there.
We arrived in the morning. Around 5-6-ish.
And mornings in Baguio ain't no sunshine stroll in the park.
It's pretty damn cold, man!
I NEED ATTENTION!)
One thing we noticed other than the change in venue is that every driver in BAGUIO seems to be in a hurry or some sort.
We'd swear that every driver must have got their license from SEGA.
Because hitching a ride literally feels like a scene from either CRAZY TAXI / OUTRUN.
This time to the LILY OF THE VALLEY Organic Farm.
Then we've finally decided to have breakfast at a really fancy looking place called CAFE BY THE RUINS.
A Dose Of Happy.)
Where in we had a really tasty burger that came from the ruins.
(pic courtesy of Where To Eat In Baguio.)
So that's that, no reason to be late, right?????
we have difficulty catching up with everyone on all those merciless inclined and uphill zones.
And for those not in the know, BBCC stood for BAGUIO-BENGUET CONVENTION CENTER.
We're not so sure if the venue got smaller or are there more people but it's definitely not the same.
Which was a little bit of a let down since we did get to buy a whole lot of discounted but more in good condition books from Mt. Cloud
Bookshop. A thing we weren't able to do if we weren't too sleepy/tired/bothered by all that unnecessary walk-a-thon we did just moments ago.
Which left us 4 people less for the 2nd QBCCC IRON MAN invitational challenge.
We were already short of one extra playable character. A character more popularly known as
So far, all that's left were Kowtow Komiks
and Silent Sanctum Manga (hey, that's us!)
RASEL TOKWA and CARLOROZY both backed up by their significant others.
Giodesk and wife,
Point Zero Comics,
502 Komiks + UP Grail,
The Komikon Committee.
and Sir Michael "Kanal" David.
No picture on stage but here's a picture of him manning his booth.
being part of the panelist which was a free for all and had not really highlighted their individual artistic prowess.
Do it, do it naow!
Everyone went home with a "souvenir".
IT'S A BARREL MAN!
4 pieces of art prints from Trizhie. And that's that!
Sorry nalamog, nahigaan ko kasi. Kaya nga kumalat din yung mga fillings.
Hahaha, sorry mommy at kuya!
And of last but not the least....the most recent one, ELBIKON.
ELBIKON is so epic that it deserves another entry by itself.
So say farewell to all these loser events and see you on the next entry where we talk about the really fun and really out of this world experience that is ELBIKON.
