Chico & Delamar Book Signing Day

A not-so-good-but-thank-God-it's-not-serious news surprised me early this morning from my gall bladder. But I didn't let that ruin my day. I have an appointment with Chico and Delamar in the afternoon for their book signing. A quick visit at the gym and this welcomed me at the Robinson's Galleria activity center...

Upon seeing the short line, I decided to grab a quick bite. And when I returned after 10 minutes...

Fell in line for 2 hours but when they got on stage, everything's worth it. #323! Got my book signed around 4PM.

I pity Chico & Delamar for staying up until after 7pm just to sign 450 books. It's past 7pm and look at the crowd!

And so, KALOYSTER indeed got TMR'd! Woot!

2nd Tat DONE!

Eversince I got my barcode tattoo a few years back I had this urge of having another. But I really can't think of a worthy design that could beat the barcode etched in my lower abdomen. So the plan was put to a halt. But when I saw this online ad from Ensogo last October, I immediately purchased a voucher. It was a good deal as compared to what I paid to Gene Testa when I had my first tat.

Voucher validity is good for 3 months which means that I need to use this before January ends. And as soon as the first week of January came, I was cramming for a design. I first thought of a portrait of Jon Angelo but then again that's kinda hard to do and maybe too painful for my tolerance. Then I considered an ambigram with my name read upwards and Jon Angelo's downwards. But our names weren't compatible. So I got back to the alternative design when I had my barcode tat...a Yin-Yang.

The inside of Mafioso Ink shows a lot of plaques and recognition from different tattoo competitions.

The blueprint of my Yin-Yang etched on my left arm.

The stenciling of the design took us about 2 hours. Longer than the actual inking.

And the finished product. Now contemplating on my next design. LOL

Yesterday, the Department of Tourism unveiled their new tourism slogan. And in a few hours, it was a trending topic at twitter and many people joined in the bandwagon and created their own Meme's for the slogan.

For International press release...
For local release...

Meme's from DOT's official campaign website.

And even Fil-Am Rob Schneider did his own thing in support of this new slogan...

And here's my favorite! Credit goes to the owner.

2012 NY Message

Thanks 2011. We've shared a lot of tears and laughters, success and disappointments, inspirations and desperations, losses and survivals. A bittersweet combination that helped mold us into who we are now. Claiming for a better 2012 not only for me but especially to those who fell victims to different circumstances in the past year. Let's pick up the pieces and start with a positive outlook. Cheers to a clean slate! Cheers to 2012!
