Sorry to keep you waiting! I know I only have a few readers, and I really appreciate you guys. I was busy
So, to start off this post, I just want to tell you that this is my first time attending the fair. I`ve been dreaming to go and witness one of the major events for booklovers for almost two years now, and finally, my dream came true! All my energy spent on bugging my parents since I`ve known it would happen (I didn`t know why I didn`t know when the book fair would be). Last year, they promised me that we would go this year, and yep, I`ve held on to their words!
I went on a Saturday, September 15, and was awed by the time before I even got inside the venue. As my dad was searching for a parking space, I kept on looking and looking on the SMX Convention Center. I was really excited, and I couldn`t imagine what fantasy I would see with my own eyes!
Your entrance fee would be worth it. I`m serious.
20 php for adults, and if you have a student ID, it`s only 15 php! I did bring my ID, so I had a 5 peso discount. ((But you could ask for free tickets from the bookstore branches, I think)) The tickets/bookmarks below are from Fully Booked I got for free when I got inside the venue (it`s okay, I love bookmarks.)
Let me tell you what adventure I took before I found this Demigod Diaries book. Inside the fair, I didn`t find it anywhere because it was always out of stock. I really wanted it since my birthday because I love the Percy Jackson series. (Yeah, I even roleplay on tumblr about PJO) I had to look for outside the fair (since it`s just like the same with the discount and all) I looked everywhere. Fully Booked, Power Books, and I only found it in National Bookstore branch. But it was worth it, you know? The pleasure you get when you have your hands on the book you want.
And my outfit for the day~
I`m sorry if this post sucks big time. I had it in my drafts for so long I forgot everything I was supposed to say. :(
Blah blah blah. ♥

I won`t start with "I am blah blah and age`s blah blah" because I consider it lame and a total turn-off to your attention.
