Pista'y Dayat 2010 Schedule of Events

I am really a fan of the Pista'y Dayat Celebration. Ever since I was a  kid I never miss attending the event. Last 2005 and 2006 we won in the sand Sculpting Competition. It was really memorable, not because of the prizes, but because of the enjoyment and the ambiance that the festival provides. I would really love to attend the fest if not for my work. However I will always be here to support the event because I love Pangasinan and I love my heritage! :)

Pangasinan Festivals

Last day-off I went home to my hometown in Lingayen, Pangasinan to attend our local fiesta. I was not there during the main day though because I need to go to work, which is very sad. Not so sad though, because i was able to attend the opening of the art exhibit of my artist friends in Pangasinan, they are also members of the Dagupan Artist Circle and the Pangasinan Artist Group. The exhibit is titled "DakatDakat" meaning to dip oneself in water. I was invited by Patrick Fernandez in Facebook for the event, as a part of the Bangus Festival 2010 celebration in Dagupan City the Bangus capital of the world. The exhibit is showcased at Cafe Dumarc at 4pm, April 22. I was there by 5pm because I had a quick nap before going to the said exhibit.

The pictures above were taken during the exhibit. Thank you very much Patrick, Boni, Jojit and the rest of the Dagupan Artist Circle for the warm welcome. After the exhibit, We were also able to have a shot of GSM blue. I was so drunk and sleepy after that I was not able to go home that night, we had  very good time chatting and exchanging ideas and experiences. It really made my short stay in Pangasinan so memorable.

The day after, April 23 in the afternoon, me and my brothers Lou-mel, Jep-jep and Not-not my niece went to the Lingayen Gulf for a swim, then we realized that at the same time the 1st Bagoong Festival together with 2010 Pistay Dayat Celebration is being formally Opened. We watched the colorful parade of the street dancers and got to roam around a bit.

I really enjoyed the my trip back home, and I wished that my stay would be for a week but sadly, I need to go back for work, money matters. :) I'd definitely go back and have my summer experience be a great one!

Summer Komikon 2010

Yesterday Me and my friends attended the Summer Komikon 2010 at UP Bahay ng Alumni QC Philippines. We arrived there sometime after 10am. We fell in line before entering paid P50 then finally set-up the Indie Table assigned to me, well that was the only vacant table so we took it. I sold my latest comics creation Baboy 2 as well as my old comics that includes Baboy, MLU, EDSA, and DogStyle. Present also in my table is 8 Oras of my housemate Roelito and Pinoy Komiks Rebyu by Randy Valiente the same person who wrote EDSA.

There were many peolple and komiks and toys and everything, I was not able to roam around that much though because I'm stuck at my table selling my comics.At first nobody seems to find me because my table is on the far corner with a huge post blocking the view. Then a litter later people started walking by, browsing and buying my comics which made me very happy. At the end of the day only a few copies of my comics are left, Baboy2, MLU and Dogstyle were sold out! :) as well as 8 oras of Roel.

I was able to meet my frieds in Comics Gerry, RH, Freely, Hazel, Mcoy, Randy, Chapel, Rodent of SSM, the Masters from Atomic Underground. Culture Crash Idols: Melvin, Jon, Micheal, Elmer D.,  Omeng, Tin-tin and many many more... My thanks to all who have dropped by my table, and those who appreciate and love my works. let's meet again on the next convention! :)

After the Komikon we had a lot of komiks in our bags, had a great time and really enjoyed the event. Roel Even won at the On-the-Spot comics strip making contest! It's really one memorable saturday! :D

Baboy 2 Update

Ang "Baboy" ang pinaka-una kong indie na binenta ko at sinali sa Komikon. Gumagawa na kasi ako ng sarili kong komiks simula pa nung nasa 3rd yr hayskul ako hanggang college. Laking tuwa ko nung manalo ang Baboy ng unang gantimpala sa comics-creation nung Nov 2007. Madaming naghahanap ng karugtong kaya gumawa ako ng Baboy2 sana magustuhan mo rin katulad nung una. Maraming salamat at hanggang sa muli! :) Mabibili ang ang Baboy 2 sa Komikon etong sabado sa UP bahay ng Alumni Abril 17. Kita kita nalang tayo dun! :)
