Last January, I got to visit some friends in San Francisco and got to see the sights. My designated tour guide through my stay, D-chan, to my giddy excitement, pulls out a 35mm TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) film Camera. HOOO-LY CRAP~! I thought it was an actual Rollei or a Yashica. Turns out it was a builders kit that came with issue #25 of “Otona no kagaku magazine” (Science of Adult), published by Gakken. So it’s not as fancy as Lomo’s Lubitel 166 or those really fancy TLR’s yet it STILL IS a basic but fully functional 35mm film camera. When she told me it was a kit that came with a camera, I asked her to take me to where she got it. Mozied over to Kinokuniya in Japan town and picked one up. Of course I didn’t get to put it together while I was there. Continue reading
Camille sharing how she got into blogging at the DLSU Blogger's Congress
For for folks who have been following Camille Co (@ItsCamilleCo) for a while now, are well aware that she has been more than successful in her “attempts” at blogging, as she so puts it, using the Tumblr platform. While for all intents and purposes, up to now, it does the job well. I for one have my own tumblr stream but I rarely even use it for a full post other than pushing this semi active blog of mine. Even with the innovations it has, Tumblr, as I’d like to put it is a super-sized Twitter.
Back to Camille Co’s blogging (mis)adventures, it’s been a year since she started off on her fashion escapades and now, I think it’s safe to say that she really now has her blog in a proper blogging platform. I’ve heard her name crop up in the blogosphere for sometime now and it wasn’t only until the 2nd Blogger’s Congress held in DLSU in October 2011, did I get to see this tall, fashionable miss that’s making waves in the fashion blog scene. Very humble and quite a fun story on how she got into blogging. Interestingly enough, she’s started blogging with nary any know how. From what I recall, everything she knows in web publishing are self taught. Honestly, I find her efforts and successes very inspiring. Sure she may come from a well off family, but you don’t establish branding as simply as that. She’s managed to put her own clothing line, Coexist, on the map as a particularly trendy line of clothing for young ladies through Multiply.com. Goes to show that with ingenuity, a little know how, and a lot of elbow grease, one can achieve just about anything they desire. Now, fashion circles habitually put her in high regard on their short lists.
And to commemorate her new blog’s launch, she’s giving away a buncha stuff so you’d might want to hop on over to itscamilleco.com for a chance to win some prizes!
So, more power to this fashionable and savvy entrepreneur. And a do be nice and drop her birthday tweet as well.
This July is certainly a doll-centric month for me. As per my annual visit to the Fragrant Harbor, I figured I’d schedule this year’s visit to coincide with the annual doll exhibit, Dollism Plus, happening on the 17th July, 2011 at the Kowloon Bay International Trade and Exhibition Centre (九龍灣國際展貿中心).
During my last visit in November 2010, I got to spend an evening with the HK doll-folk. A fun bunch they are and very accommodating, also a very good reminder for me to brush up on my Mandarin. T’was nice to be able to put a face to the ‘Tweetah’ names having been able to meet @Quentinlau and @Stepswalker. Looking forward to this year’s Dollism, I’ll be meeting the rest of the HK doll community. I also understand that a large group of SG Doll folk as well as some from BKK will also be arriving. This is going to be quite a big get together. Aside from Yasuko and Mikuru, thankfully, I won’t be alone in representing the budding doll community of the Philippines. Continue reading

I’ve been mellowing down on picking up PVC figures but this figure of Black Gold Saw from the BRS franchise is something I definitely wouldn’t mind having on my office desk. I just might pick this one up.
I’ve passed up on both BRS and Dead Master PVC figures, for both financial and preferential reasons. But I seem to be drawn to Black Gold Saw unlike that of the other characters in the BRS universe.

Whenever I fly over to Hong Kong, one of the things I most look forward to is the food. And while there are places that certainly demand a good penny for a meal, if one knows where to go, a couple of bucks, HK$50 to be exact can take you a long way. A new show on goyeah.com will take you on an epicurean’s tour of Hong Kong. Showing you places to grab a grub from a quick bite to a filling dinner.
