I’m happy to be back at the Manila International Book Fair this year!
It coincided with SM Mall of Asia’s three-day sale, so we decided to head there early — really early — and have breakfast before joining the crowd.
J had to head elsewhere first, so I walked to SMX from the restaurant. Good thing I chanced upon table-mate Ferdinand Pisigan Jarin (Anim na Sabado ng Beyblade, Visprint, 2013). We walked to the venue together.
Happy for the nameplate, but I still got asked where the registration table was. Haha!
I was happy to meet the readers. One of them, Mira, brought us some sweets!
Mira took this lovely photo of me and J at the Visprint table.
Tricia and her friend came armed with an Instax camera, which was very cool, and made me very jealous.
Ivy took a nice photo of me.
We stayed at the table until half-past 11.
Look at the crowd.
Got these beauties from the Visprint rack at Precious Pages. Till next year!
