SHNEAKY LI’L NINJAS at the U.P. Fair 2013

“Handmade with love and a very sharp katana.”

A product of The Reading Room, an exquisitely interesting little shop located in Cubao Expo, these little ninjas are out to reign over terror, and bring mankind peace & cuteness-overload-moments throughout the coming centuries.

The plush ninjas remind me so much of the little Ugly Dolls that I used to collect and makes them extra close to my heart.

Uglydoll is a brand based upon a line of plush toys which began as a long distance letter between the creators David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. The Uglydoll line was first launched in January 2001 and is distinguished by its definition of the word “ugly”. In the “uglyverse”, Ugly means unique and special…that we should be celebrating that which makes us different, never hiding the twists or turns which make us who we are, inside and out. …

Uglydolls were awarded the Specialty Toy of the Year award by the Toy Industry Association in 2006.” – Source


Pitaka and So Much More at the U.P. Fair 2013

Entrepreneurship By February 9, 2013 Tags: , , 1 Comment

PiTAKA prides itself with Pinoy ad hoc designs inspired by everyday Pinoy culture.

I am a brand advocate for Pitaka: Your Lifestyle Billfold. I absolutely love these cute little things, that I blog about it enough, promote it as much as I can, recommend it to my friends, and even gave nearly everyone a little pitaka as a Christmas token.

Read my other blogs about this Proudly Pinoy-made brand: Pitaka: Your Lifestyle Billfold (August 15, 2012) and My Favorite Brands at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012 (November 7, 2012).

This year, Pitaka is also participating in the U.P. Fair bazaar, along with The Reading Room, with a booth located at the left side of the stage. Here is a map of the area and we are located at booth A9! (Click on image to view original size). Do drop by any time from February 12-16, because we will be there!

Along with wallets, organizers, passport holders, iPad sleeves, mobile cases, travel pouches and bill clips, are also available, with prices ranging from Php35 – Php400.

UP Fair 2013 – Schedule, Line-up and Ticket Price

Music By January 31, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , 16 Comments

Every February, we all look forward to the biggest musical event happening at the Sunken Garden of the University of the Philippines Diliman – the UP Fair. More than just a musical event, there are food booths and little stores selling all kinds of interesting stuff and offering services like henna tattoos, palm reading, and the likes. There are also fair rides like the ferris wheel and the octopus, among others (but of course I have to say ferris wheel because it is absolutely my favorite ride of all time), and all kinds of booths offering freebies, from condoms to photos, depending on participating sponsors. You get my drift. In effect, we can say that aside from the Lantern Parade, with the corresponding Oblation Run, and our graduations with the sunflowers, it IS the biggest event of the campus every year. One whole week of all these things! How much fun can it get?!

I can say much about the UP Fair, but I will reserve that for the next week when I might be blogging about every single night I am there, or maybe just one or two, depending on my very hectic schedule. Let me say this for sure though, UP Fair 2013, we are so ready for you! Are you ready for us though?

Here are the most updated schedule, line-up, and other relevant information regarding the UP Fair 2013.

Do come back here for updates in the coming days.

One important thing is: the ticket prices are now standardized, as opposed to previous years when ticket prices varied  depending on the host organization or the line-up, but this year, every night, the ticket price is Php100. Such an awesome deal that “affordable” could not possibly be more than an understatement.

So, UP Fair 2013, we are really so ready for you! And we know that you never disappoint.
