quickie announcement

It's finally here! Sa wakas natapos na rin ang printing ng first batch ng Wickedmouth - Unang Putok. I can't believe it (wow). Pagbigyan nyo na ang excitement ko. We worked on this project for almost a year and it's now sitting sa bahay ng publisher. Bukas, gigisingin ko siya nang maaga para kunin ang first batch. Which I will be distributing sa mga nagpa-reserve in the next few days.

Unfortunately, the PBO Bazaar this coming Saturday/Sunday -  where I initially planned to sell some copies -  was cancelled. Medyo hindi kasi kami nakakuha ng suporta at mga donasyon kaya hindi na lang itutuloy ang bazaar this weekend at irereschedule na lang sa susunod na linggo.

This means ime-meet ko na lang sa ibang venue yung mga nagpa-reserve ng book. I'll be doing this sa weekend :) Sana OK sa inyo ang Trinoma, Shangri-La or Glorietta.

So nananawagan ako sa mga nagpa-reserve na gustong makuha ang book this weekend, please leave a comment kung saan and what time mo gusto and how to best contact you (FB, Twitter, email, text?)

Yung mga nagpa-reserve naman na outside Manila, I'll see kung ano yung best way to send you your order. Please leave a comment rin if you have a preferred courier service :)

Aasahan ko po yung mga nagpareserve to contact me here via comments, or sa FB or Twitter so we can schedule! Thank you!

So far since the announcement of reservations last Saturday, nasa 133 na ang nagpa-reserve :) Maraming salamat!!!

Sa next post na ako magkukuwento.

This post is dedicated to Barbie Forteza and Bea Binene I'll explain later LOL

some wicked news

Hey Kids! OK so mukhang hindi na namin maisisikreto pa itong project na ito (kahit teaser lang yung huli kong pinost about this). So yun nga, a book is coming out real soon, and we're super excited and hope you are too. This is a collaboration between me and Sir Mots, with the help of Kuya Chingoy/BHM Publishing House.

First of all we are very much pleased sa naging response ng mga kaibigan, kapwa bloggers at readers, friends sa Facebook, Twitter, at Instagram on the day that it was announced. It came as a surprise to me dahil hindi ko alam na in-announce na pala ni Kuya Chingoy sa FB noong araw na yun yung book. Maraming salamat sa mga kaibigan/bloggers na na-excite sa book, I appreciate it!

Currently, printing is under way and we expect to get the first batch (limited copies lang muna) next week. Very few copies lang... so alam na... The price is P200.

So since we did this project especially for you, I would like to share some of our plans:

October 19, 20, 26 and 27, 2013 (Saturdays & Sundays)
Last two weekends of October, may magaganap na bazaar/fundraising ang PBO (more information on my previous post). Dahil umaasa ako na maraming mga bloggers/readers ang maiimbitahan namin na dumalo sa activity na ito, we're thinking of taking the chance na makapagbenta rin ng books during these days. I have asked for approval from one of the founders, and fortunately pumayag naman siya (thank you uli Arline)

Nov 12, 2013 - Book Release (Tuesday)
Ito yung kaartehang "11.12.13" na pakulo ng publisher LOL. This is the date the book will be released sa isang bookstore (ayaw ko pang banggitin because it's not yet official). Selected branches lang ng bookstore na ito ang release and hopefully by next week I can post the list of branches.

Nov 16, 2013 - Book Launch & Signing (Saturday)
Ito ang first Saturday after the book's release, so we want to invite everyone for a small book launch na magaganap sa isang bookstore. During the book launch, ito ang mga magaganap:
  1. Special Appearance of Sir Mots
  2. If you have long been a fan of Sir Mots, chances are you only have a clue sa kanyang itsura pero hindi niya in-accept ang iyong Facebook friend request. That was what happened to me LOL. It took him YEARS bago ako i-accept bilang friend LOL. Here's your chance to finally meet the multi-talented teacher. He will be signing autographs!

  3. Special Participation of some idiot woman sa tabi-tabi
  4. Yes I'm talking about Khikhi. It's about time na magkita kami uli in person after 47 and a half years. And I want to introduce her na rin sa mga taong nababasa ang mga kwento tungkol sa kanya. You guys should see for yourself. It will take 5 minutes with her to convince you, "Shit tanginang Khikhi to, adik,". Although the chances of this actually happening are slim but I'm working on it. Ayaw nyang um-attend unless ako magbabayad ng pamasahe nya. What an asshole.

  5. Raffle Prizes
  6. Yaiy! We are preparing some stuff na ibibigay namin sa mga taong pupunta sa book launch, para hindi naman masayang ang pagod nila. We're not sure how many are thinking of actually going, so we'll just make the prizes (take note: MAKE. Yep kami ang gagawa ng prizes, can you guess what?) at kung ilan ang magawa namin, that's it. Kung kulang ang prizes, we'll raffle them off. Entry ticket: buy the book during the event.

  7. Snacks
  8. Just kidding. Let's just hang out.
 So aside from the above activities, meron pa kaming ibang mga naiisip.
  1. Since the first batch of prints ay limited in number, there's a chance na maubos ang first batch sa mga kaopisina/kaibigan namin and the next batch will be released the following month pa. Kung may gustong magpa-reserve, just let me know, at ang pick-up ay sa PBO event. Just leave a comment on this post kung gusto nyo mag-reserve ng copy.

  2. Kung walang time magpareserve it's OK, we're also inviting everyone to just come to the bazaar sa PBO event. Kung gusto mong bumili ng book, pwedeng doon na lang. There's a great chance for you to support the PBO bazaar, which is a great help to our cause.

  3. If you're not in Manila right now and would like to order, please let me know. You can message me on FB and we can talk about sending you the book :) 

  4. If you have a special/confidential request/order/question, just send me a message here: Wickedmouth Facebook Page
Again,  here's information on the upcoming PBO Bazaar:

We're also inviting everyone to donate some stuff that we can sell to people who actually need it. Books, clothes, toys, etc. are appreciated. The proceeds will be used for future PBO outreach activities.

Sorry for not posting anything else (but this) lately at sorry rin hindi pa ako makapag-bloghop masyado. We're just a bit busy ironing out all the details, and I'm really hoping for support sa PBO Bazaar at sa book launch.

I'll be posting the book cover, the raffle items and more details soon. Maraming salamat!


pbo - bazaar

It's PBO time uli and this time we're organizing a bazaar which will be happening this month and I'm inviting everyone to join in. This is a fundraising activity which is open to everyone who wants to contribute in their own little way. See posters and print ads for details LOL.

Anyway so yun nga, right now we're taking donations in the form of "pre-loved" items. Clear lang natin yung term na "pre-loved" kasi baka may malito. These are items that you own and you think is better off owned by someone else kasi baka may mas nangangailangan dito. It should be in good condition if it has been used before. I mean "pre-loved" item kasi I love yung butas kong shorts sa bahay pero syempre sinong makikinabang dun kung idodonate ko pa yun diba.

We accept office and school supplies, clothes, construction materials (joke lang) and toys. Clear lang din natin yung toys. Hindi kasali yung mga naughty toys. Parang wala namang bibili ng secondhand na ganun so pakitabi na uli yan sa iyong aparador.

Para naman sa mga walang mai-donate or nahihiya, we'll appreciate if you could drop by sa bazaar (Oct 19, 20, 26, and 27 sa QCMC) and see if there's any item you'd like to buy for yourself or a loved one. 'Di ba "Ber" months nagsisimula ang Christmas ng Pinoy, so why not start giving gifts now?

Sana marami kaming ma-collect na donations, para marami kaming maibenta sa mismong araw ng sale. Sana marami ring umattend sa event para marami kaming mabenta. What will it take for you to attend? Let us know! LOL. 

Proceeds will be added to the PBO fund na ginagamit namin when we hold outreach activities like the ones I have preivously written about. Our founders and officers always make sure that funds are well-spent and marami ang nakikinabang. This is not like pork barrel LOL.

So I want to end this by inviting everyone again, especially the below people:
  1. 'Yung mga nagcocomment sa mga previous posts on PBO events saying "Next time isama nyo ako!" or "Inggit ako gusto ko rin makatulong!" Now is your chance! See you!
  2. The people who messaged me and requested to be part of PBO. I hope to meet you guys!
  3. The people on the PBO FB Group page. I can tell that the page is active and people there are active as well, I see blog/post links being dropped there so I hope nababasa rin nila ang mga invitations doon and hope they accept it!
Yun lamang see you!
