2013 filipino readercon + game on! + dr. who philippines party

Okay, let’s do this in chronological order because I am so behind in my blogging duties. Sorry about that! (To the three of you who care!)

Dr. Who Philippines 50th Anniversary Party

Nov. 23, 2013

I would have missed this, if not for J. We were not members of the Whovian Philippines group on Facebook, but thankfully J was able to catch the invitation online from Honey de Peralta (of Flipside and the Filipino ReaderCon), and I was able to email Shani Tan (of Aromateria) in order to secure the last remaining slots. Hooray for last-minute plans!

We borrowed a friend’s little desktop Dalek for the party. (Thanks Dan!)

I was blown away by the costumes of the attendees! I definitely did not expect to see a life-size Dalek in there.

PB231672

I bought a Dalek shirt. :) (I don’t understand my sudden fixation, but there you go.)

PB231670

The party was held at the Roofdeck of One San Miguel Avenue. Look at the view. How beautiful.

PB231679

There was a mini Dr. Who GeekFight, which we were only glad to sit out because holy shit we would have failed. Miserably. Hardcore fans are hardcore.

I enjoyed the loot bag because it was mostly candy!

3rd Filipino ReaderCon

Dec. 7, 2013

Thank you to Honey de Peralta and the rest of the Filipino ReaderCon team for having me as panelist with THE Gerry Alanguilan! My thanks also to Carljoe Javier for his very generous introduction. I enjoyed talking about the books and stories I treasure at the Authors as Readers panel. Maraming salamat sa mga nakinig at nakiusisa!

A very special thanks to Danry Ocampo for the photos.

If you missed it, here’s a podcast created by Carljoe. (Warning: I sound weird.)

J and I also had fun hanging out with Francis QuinaGabriela Lee, and Carl. (Wooden Spoon is the best!)

Thank you for this photo, Atty. Monique and Tina M!
