My niece,friend and I went to Ateneo De Manila University just this saturday, Febuary 16, 2013, and watched the Blue Repertory's "Spring Awakening".

Spring Awakening is a rock musical, set in late-19th century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality.It showed frank portrayal of abortionhomosexualityrapechild abuse and suicide.

The musical show dates:
Febuary 14-17,20-24,26-28 and march 1
for those who are interested: you may find out more from their Facebook page

As we waited for the show to start, I took photos of the venue.I don't intend to spoil the content of the show but to only preview a few of dozens from the list of their amazing performance.

The very well made stage by their production designers

The ladies and gents behind the moving and harmonious music of the play

Started out with mother and child then the ladies danced

Anger,love and pain

the misfit truth

till death come between them

Spectacular Events
Thousands of shoppers

Hundreds of tenants

The Grandest and Biggest Fashion Adventure!

It was last saturday when the event started and the doors opened to welcome all shoppers.I had my chance to drop by and roam around last sunday since I couldn't because I had another event last saturday.The entrance fee was just 50 Pesos but I got lucky because it was Happy Hour, 2-3pm, when I arrived so I got in for free.I guess last sunday didn't get as much shoppers compared to their 1st day.There were still though plenty of people going around buying cool filipino made products and some also branded clothes/accessories.Overall I think the event was a success.


They were like a representative from a cosplay type of event

They had the cutest necklaces,watches,rings and other accessories

The two entertaining host

They had food stalls on the further part of the hall

Aztec designs+bags= awesome

Colorful bags

Great singers

I love basics

2013 just hit the coast and Graphika Manila made a risky move of having it's annual conference early this year.No matter how shocking it was to know about that the fans were still there to support,learn,interact with the speakers and have fun.I, among everyone else that was there, did not let the opportunity pass by.I dressed-up according to the color scheme of the poster.I started doing that last year.Dress to impress i guess and also to be the walking landmark whenever my friends and I get separated in the crowd.As what Graphika Manila said "KICKSTART YOUR YEAR OF CREATIVITY!".

My chest hair looks like a cleavage :))

My two loyal multimedia arts(MMA) friends

The Graphika tote bag containing a feedback form,raffle form,a graphic design booklet,and other MMA related stuff

Below are my visual summarizations of some highlights from the conference.There were too many especially from the best speakers.

James White(Yes,he literally is white)
Nova Scotia,Canada
Graphic Designer

He was awesome.I'll put everything short.He really had control and starting off with the conference was the difficult part.He was like a rock star for our type crowd.

The VERY FAMOUS shirt ambassador for the GM shirt (by Devil Robots)

Koto & Shin
Toys and Graphic Design

You'll learn a lot about "Tofu" from these guys.They showed how 1 idea could be very flexible and sell in the market.TOFU graphic deisgners!!! :D

Sony Pictures Animation
Armand Serrano
Animation & Visual development

He's the only Filipino among the rest of the speakers but he came from abroad because he's working for Sony Pictures Animation.He's one of the people who worked on "Hotel Transylvania".He was okay,the mood was just not clicking-in.He focused on showing his art for the movie.

Ryan Honey
Motion Graphics

Now this guy, with his company's help, blew me away with their intense and deeply thought about visual projects.He showed us lots of amazing ads,film and etc.I didn't even made effort to understand the concept,I just knew that whatever they were selling to me was surely sold and am paying cold hard cash.

Jessica Walsh(!!!!!!!!!)
New York,USA
Graphic Design

This woman!!!!She was the one!!!the best speaker ever!!!that's all :)) Kidding!
She made a lot of very crazy yet intellectual projects along side her team.She reminded us of our design concept professor.Everyone loved her and she loved everyone back.Overall she taught us not to give-up because if we really want to succeed in life then we should just play around.Treating work as an act of playing is what makes everything easier.

Benjamin Seide
Visual Effects

The very famous pixomondo focused on sharing with us their experience with making Game of Thrones and Hugo.It was nice though.Benjamin got more hyper after the conference when they were already having a group picture.Ahahahaha!!!

Benja Harney
Paper Engineering

Now this man was amazing and still is amazing.Imagine a person gained money from doing advance origami styles.Pure creativity.Graphika Manila brought great people infront of us that day.So parents please if your child is reading an origami book instead of math, I highly recommend not to disturb them and support the creativity going-on in their presence because you might never know where success starts out from.
