CHA TIME

These photos were taken on October 3, 2015 at Eton Centris, Quezon City.

It was my second time at Cha Time and this was the first time that Ino and I went to Centris together. (So many times!) It was after the Komiket 2015 and we were quite hungry so we decided to chill at Cha Time.

I ordered some milk tea while he ordered some fruit slushy or something and then we had some flavored fries.

The place was spacious and chic. There were a lot of people when we dined in. They also offered some magazines while we wait. Their staffs were pretty nice and accommodating too. It was a chill experience.

Komiket 2015

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on January 1, 2016.

 

This post is long overdue.

I am not a huge fan of comic books, unlike Ino. Actually going to Komiket was his idea. I don’t know much about comics or Filipino comics in general. I am not quite familiar with the who’s who of Filipino comics but I used to read Beerkada by Lyndon Gregorio on Philippine Star when I was in grade school or high school. So, I had my fangirling moment when I met him at Komiket.

These photos were taken at Komiket in Centris last October 3, 2015. It was our first Komiket so we were very excited. We went there around 3pm to 4pm until 7 PM and had a very good experience.

 

 

I know that there are duplicates but I will sort this out soon.

 

What is Komiket?

According to Komiket’s Facebook pageThe Filipino Komiks Market (KOMIKET) aims to discover new comics creators, new readers and celebrate new comic book launches! Kita-kits sa Komiket!:)

It was a fun experience. It was an avenue for graphic artists, illustrators, and artists who want to exhibit their self-published works. It is also for the fans to see, discover, and buy new volumes of komiks from their favorite publishers, illustrators, graphic artists, etc.

They were also selling various stuff from T-shirts to mugs to self-published comic books, different kinds of comic books, mangas, discounted comic books, etc. There was a painting session for children of all ages too. Some were also selling adult coloring books, paints, pens, paint brushes and other drawing or sketching materials.

Some famous artists and illustrators were featured in the event as well. Wait, I think I kinda mixed up the Komiket and Komikon experience. Haha! But I guess you’ll see most of these this year, if you are interested to come. Of course.

Aside from famous Filipino artists and publishers who have published their own works, there are a lot of young artists who are doing commissions too. Most of them have just started a few years ago and some of them have just joined this event. Oh! There are a lot of handsome and cute artists, and illustrators too! Hehehe…

Since I am not really good at painting, drawing, sketching, MS Paint, Adobe Photoshop, or anything artistic aside from writing and story telling… I can say that it was an awesome experience! I guess there will be more people (those who know how to draw, read and enjoy mangas, hardcore and not-so-hardcore [softcore?] comic book fans, artists, illustrators, or anyone who knows much about drawing, sketching and the like…) who will appreciate this event in 2016. I hope that they can spread the word in advance, like what I’m doing now. Haha!

Oh, Komiket didn’t pay me to advertise their event. Haha! It’s just that I really enjoyed it that’s why I’m posting everything here.

I wish that more people can go and visit the event this year. Ino and I are planning to go too.

All in all, it was one heck of an experience and I hope that this year’s Komiket would be more awesome.

Bobby Box

BobbyBox is a Korean Restaurant located at Retail J, Cyberpod Centris 3, Eton Centris.

 

Ino and I went to our first Komiket last October 3, 2015. We went to Centris around 1 or 2 pm. We were quite hungry already when we arrived so we scouted for a good restaurant nearby. Lucky for us because BobbyBox was really near Centris Elements, where Komiket 2015 was held.

 

 

Ino and I are suckers for Korean food. So, we instantly fell in love with their Bulgogi and Bibimbap dishes. Their food were tasty and quite affordable too. I also liked the ambiance of the restaurant because it was spacious and chic.

All in all, I recommend this restaurant to everyone who likes Korean food. If you happen to pass by Centris, don’t hesitate to try it. You won’t regret it.

 

DISCLAIMER: This isn’t a paid advertisement. I just really enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service that they provided us that’s why I’m writing a food blog about them.
