Sale, bookfair, anime convention, food fest, blog giveaways and film festival!
The SM MOA 3 day sale starts tomorrow. Yeah!
Since you’ll already be at MOA for the sale, you may want to check out the 32nd Manila International Bookfair happening now until Sunday, September 18, 2011 (10AM-8PM) at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, Metro Manila. For the list of exhibitors, here’s the link.
We were there last year and I was able to score some really good books but not as much as my sister. I think there was an entrance fee last time but still expect the place to be packed. Precious Pages Corp (I’m in no way whatsoever related to them.) has a booth again this year. Last year, girls were hoarding their pocket books because of the really big discounts. They also carry books for children. Last year, almost everyone was carrying their paper bags as they were giving them away in bunches even without purchase. Instant advertisement.
Also, same as last year, an anime convention will be happening at the SMX over the weekend, The Best Of Anime 2011. Cosplay is a given. There’s an entrance fee of course. For the list activities, click here.
Over at Manila Ocean Park, they will be having a Food Fest tomorrow ’til Sunday. I can’t vouch for this as I haven’t been to any of their organized activities before, but it’s food so I may drop by. For details, here’s the link.
Meanwhile, the Korean Embassy will be hosting a Korean Film Festival over at SM MOA, (September 19-25) SM North (September 20-25), and SM Cebu (September 28-October 2). I’ve read in the PDI that entrance is free. It is important to visit this page (Click “2011 Korean Film Festival” when you get to the page.) from the Korean Embassy to the Philippines website for screening schedules as the screenings are not a whole day thing. Synopsis of films to be shown are also on the page. We will be catching Jang Geun Suk (‘He’s Beautiful’) in ‘A Happy Life’ and Song Hye Kyo (‘Full House’) in ‘Hwang Jin Yi’.
