The Philippines is known for having the longest celebration for the Christmas season. As early as September, people are playing Christmas songs, hanging up Christmas decorations and some even set up their Christmas lights and trees. Christmas is usually known for getting presents and having holidays, family reunions and massive shopping with the numerous mall-wide sales that happen during this season.
Of course, the real meaning behind Christmas, as cliche as it sounds, is the spirit of giving.
We bloggers, anime fans, gamers and figure collectors alike are pretty fortunate with what we have. Even though we do say that our wallets get empty because of our hobbies, we are fortunate enough to even have the leisure of getting into these hobbies.
So, in light of this, I invite you to share even a little of your blessings to those who are less fortunate than we are.
Fellow blogger Xine of Toypusher is currently having a fund raising event for the kids of Virlanie Foundation, Inc. until October 20, 2010. The funds that will be gathered will be used for the Halloween Party that Xine and her friends will organize.
If you have a little something extra, giving what you can would be a great help to these kids. If you don’t have that, at least spending your time to spread the word would still be a great help. You can check Xine’s blog entry for more details about the donation.

She needs to go!
As stated in the title of this post, I’m putting up my figma Hatsune Miku Live Stage version for sale. She was the result of an impulse buy and after placing my payment for her, I started regretting it. I should’ve bought Nendo Theia instead ><; but oh well. She’s already here, but I would want someone who loves her more to be able to have her.
She’s still brand new, unopened, and even the box is in perfect condition.
Edit 02/18/2010: She’s already sold folks :D Will be shipping her to her new owner tomorrow.

A simple illustration of how every little bit can help!
A few days ago, I, along with many other Filipinos, thought that the strong rains were yet another of the mundane storms that pass our country from time to time, during the season we call the “rainy season”. Unknown to us, this storm was unlike any other that the country has experienced.

yes, doujinshi are the main attraction in Comiket... but how can you resist the cuteness?
