Yaoi Expo

So. There’s finally been an official announcement for Yaoi Expo next year. It will be held, at the Bayanihan Center, Metro Manila on March  17, 2018.

Yaoi Expo is the successor of the previous yaoi convention – Lights Out and, after that, BlushCon.

Originally, Yaoi Expo was supposed to be held at Elements, ETON Centris, as previously announced. However, ETON Centris is to undergo a compulsory reconstruction resulting to the cancellation of the original venue. Thus, it has been moved to Bayanihan Center, Metro Manila.

Tickets sales will be done with two options – Event Brite 🤓 and Google Form.

Available tickets are at their usual rate:
Ticket Tier G – General Service – PHP 250.00 – admission only
Ticket Tier PG – Softcore – PHP 500.00 – admission + Ikemen Cafe
Ticket Tier SPG – Hardcore –  PHP 1,000.00 – admission + Ikemen Cafe + meet and greet with special guests

I’ll probably get the Hardcore, depending on who the special guests are. There will be 2. They will reveal them soon. I have this inkling that they are someone from the Yuri On Ice fandom~ 😍

On previous yaoi conventions, there are strict policies such as only taking photos for personal use and not allowing these photos to be posted in public. These rules have yet to be announced, but I think they’ll be around the same as it was. So by now, most yaoi fans are used to them since this has been the nth yaoi con.

🤓 I was very surprised with the Event Brite option!

I’m not married to Event Brite, but I would really recommend this option to other organizers of events since it’s very convenient.

I haven’t handled major events like a Yaoi Con (and have no plans to in the future, btw), but I’ve helped out in handling small events here and there. And to be honest, handling events are very tedious and not to mention, tiring. (So at the end of the day, we all have to thank all our event organizers for all their hard work. 🙇) And as most of us probably know, the Google Form works, but are done usually done very manually. And now comes, the Event Brite option!

For those who doesn’t know, Event Brite is a self-service ticketing platform you can use to handle all your ticketing problems, when doing events. You get to have your own event page where you can give out the link to, and the best part of it is that it has a payment option where all you have to do is link your Paypal merchant account to the Event Brite event page. Easy peasy! The payment option is run by Paypal. This means that you can receive payment using several options such as your Paypal funds, major banks and/or credit cards.

After you do an online event registration on Event Brite, you can also look for similar events or events around the area using Event Brite and there are other event planning tools too to help you promote and stuff.

CareerCon 2017

I’ve been job hunting recently. While looking around, I couldn’t help but to have a few flash backs from when I was a fresh graduate. This was around 10 years ago. Even back then, looking for a job was really hard. Months pass by me without a job. I was running around the place, dropping resumes from one company to another, taking exams, attending interviews. And it took me about 7 months before I finally landed a job.

On the months without a job, I was helpless, stressed, and confused. I was unsure of a lot of things. There were several times when I seriously ask myself things like, “Am I even on the right path?” or “Is this really the right job for me?”

So, I wanted to share a workshop called CareerCon 2017 to all the lost souls contemplating on their career paths like I did. This workshop is by Team Aguhon and aims to help and train students on their career paths.

Looking for a job right now is extremely hard. A lot of weight will be lifted from your worrying shoulders if you know what to take and how to proceed. I hope I would be able to help people by sharing this workshop.

Good luck to you guys out there too! 🙂

Fisher Box Office

Last week, I braved the storms, literally, to attend an event with friends at Fisher Mall. Fisher Mall is a mall in Quezon Ave., Quezon City. I got there via commuting riding a bus along EDSA, I went down at Muñoz Market and walked a bit to the corner (there’s a overpass there at the corner). There are a lot of jeepneys there going to Quiapo, I just rode one and said “Fisher Mall” to the driver. It’s a bit of a drive away, but you’ll see the mall right away when you get there.

To be honest, it was my first time going to Fisher Mall. I wasn’t expecting much at first, but Fisher Mall is great! It’s very clean, and is very well ventilated – the air condition is better than some malls out there, on which was totally unexpected.

The Fisher Box Office (or the best cinema in Metro Manila) is all the way up on the 4th Floor. You’ll notice it right away because the great smell of popcorn will lead you to it. Haha!

During the event, we learned about the newly launched Fisher Box Office Online Ticket Reservation and later that day, we had the privilege try out their new 3D cinemas. Read More →
