I’m still in post-MIBF recovery (the usual: sore throat, backache, and basically feeling like I’ve been run through a laundry press…), and I just sent off my cousin (boo hoo) plus have loads to catch up on (work,
Heneral Luna, new Doctor Who, Face Off, and the mountain of to-be-read books, including MIBF acquisitions), so here’s a photo blog in the meantime!
Official ribboncutting photo.
The Tahanan booth was perpetually overflowing!

Chilling — me with my team! (Apparently the calm before the storm)
Demo artist and the drool-worthy Faber Castell polychromos
Loved Adarna’s carnival themed booth!

Best thing about this weekend: my cousin flew in for MIBF!
Work mode: here’s children’s book author Ergoe Tinio getting interviewed for Bandila
(because believe it or not, I do actually work at the MIBF)
And here’s Jomike Tejido on cam, too!
Saturday afternoon crowd: C-R-A-Z-Y!
Finally met Christine Brae! (Her books were my guilty pleasure of the previous week!)
managed to catch part of the book discussion!
FFP X TFG Harper Lee book discussion
Sunday morning at 9am — that was the line for Kiera Cass. Kids were crying when
they announced there weren’t any more slots!
Rob Cham signing my copy of “Light”
Slappy! (OMG seriously, scary!)
with Xi Zuq and Al Estrella
Interesting Wattpad talk: 9.5 billion words have been published
by Filipino Wattpadders!
with Shy Shelly author Justine Hail (thank you for Huey Louie!!!)
with Russel Molina
Plus, the last of my #MIBF2015 loot:
A complete set of Jomike Tejido’s lovely banig painting postcards
(thank you, Jomike!)
Shy Shelley loot (thanks, Justine!)
And the last few books (because weekend shopping at the MIBF is beyond my abilities).
See you at next year’s MIBF!
