..At WikiPilipinas World Launch-28th Manila International Book Fair

Finally, it's our final day at the MIBF held at the World Trade Center in Pasay. Lots of activities, surprise give-aways to all our contestants who participated in our presentations and other booth activities (see our activities). Five days is so fast and yours truly is so haggard with our simultaneous book launches (Church Facades and Occupation) by prominent writers Fr. Pedro Galende and Benito Legarda. Aside from these, I have met fellow bloggers at the event called WikiPinas meets Pinoy Bloggers held at Marina Restaurant last Aug. 31, 2007. Also, at the same restaurant (by the way, i love their superb Tuna Belly) I had the chance to rub elbows with Pinoy Wikipedians on their 2nd Filipino Wikipedians Meet-up on the last day of the Book Fair. It was really nice seeing and meeting them in person.

Of course, the day won't end without the much awaited Wikibingo. Again, two 1GB Cruzer flash disks, two memory card readers and, take note, one 4GB Blue IPod Nano were given away to five lucky winners. A stub writing contest was also held and a Filnet mousepad, limited edition designer bags and commemorative WikiPilipinas shirt were given to three winners. But everyone were not left empty handed as we also gave them our Matrix inspired mousepads. Now that's cool right? ....more
