Manila International Bookfair at SMX, Mall of Asia is AWESOME! It happens every September. There are a lots of booths and publishers. It is awesome for they offer lots of discounts and freebies! I didn’t have any photos taken from the fair (poor little cellphone, a crap). To cut the story short, it is an awesome experience and I BOUGHT MANY BOOKS! though my wallet, my purse and my pocket is screaming out every cents.
First thing I was looking for here is the VISPRINT booth, so I can reserve a copy of Trese 3 by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo! Awesome that I met Budjette again and finally met Kajo (I’ve been looking for him and asking Budjette hell a lot of times when is Kajo will appear – that’s last FCBD and Summer Komikon and at twitter!). Also saw Manix Abrera last Friday and I didn’t approached him, got the feeling of shyness (lol) and I didn’t reserve a copy of his “12” yet. Still got no moolah for that.
Beside the Visprint booth is the Scholastics booth. All the books at the Scholastics booth are 50% off their prices and there’s more, they give away 100pesos off GCs! It a lot hell of discount there. So I grab some Harry Potter books (because I am starting with my collection of this series) and woooot! There I have it!

There are random books I’ve bought I will not post it here (so lazy to type y’know) and after this fair, we went to book warehouse located at Longos. Got 4 books there! Awesome.
