They say that when kids hit the ripe old age of 13, it’s time to drop all the toys, but not with the annual Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention. Now in its 13th year, the Toycon again treated young ones and young at hearts to indulge in.

Bats. Lots of Bats

Since Toycon 2014 is designated as one of the kickoff events for the worldwide celebrations for Batman’s 75th anniversary, it definitely dedicated a lot to the caped crusader.

Right at the entrance of the event, attendees are greeted with the 12-inch Batman figures from American manufacturer Neca. As is with the other large sized figures produced by the company (such as the Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim displayed alongside it), this particular Batman figure is not impressive only for its sheer size, but also the impressive amount of details.

Roaming around the convention’s market area, there are a multitude of Batman figures to choose from. There are the ever-present 4-inch figures with the fancy weapon gimmicks that ma…

I am a very private person. In fact, on my social networking sites though my work revolves around the Internet, I have only few chosen friends on my list. Because I believe on 'privacy' and 'exclusivity' of each accounts, I rarely accept people who don't have connections with me (or let's say I don't add random people if we don't have mutual connection).

During these past months, I received 'anonymous calls' from this certain person which I won't reveal his identity until something came up so I have to mention his name or post some evidences of his stupidity. I remembered that I gave my # because he might be traveling to the USA and we can keep in touch (we're friends -- before!). I didn't know that he will use it for 'stalking purposes.' He called a couple of times whenever He has signal and badmouthed me of some things that I don't recall.

Good thing that I have installed a 'pho…

While I browsed their clips online, saw that they were from X Factor. So, I listen to one of their songs and I said to her, the lyrics of 'What makes you beautiful' is good. I wonder why girls (in your age), are giggling while watching them just like in my BackStreet Boys days. Then, I distracted her and said, hey let's watch NKOTB and BSB concert so that …
