Kwentong Chopsticks

I was browsing thru old issues of Nosebleed Magazine I saw my old column Kwentong Chopsticks, it was originally planned that all my humorous essays will be compiled into a book with the same title. 

That was year 2008. 

Nosebleed magazine lasted only for 4 issues.  Still, it was better than my previous magazine Topak which lasted only for 2 issues where I was the editor.

I was a bit nostalgic when I saw photos of the launch for both Topak and Nosebleed, I was leaner and younger looking during the past book fair event.  It was also the first time that I was able to sign books alongside Ramon Bautista.

The book fair is fast approaching once more and I’m assigned to be a part of the Psicom booth again for a Suplado Tips book signing during the weekend, maybe a Saturday and Sunday this time with Tado Jimenez because he is launching his first book at the book fair which is still going to be held inside SMX Convention Center, I have a two page comic contribution entitled ‘Sup Tado in his book.

Looking back I realized that the book fair has always been a part of my yearly activities dating back to 2007, when I launched my first Chopsticks book.  I can’t wait to see all the readers and draw their caricatures on those Chopsticks books, and as for Kwentong Chopsticks that concept was revised and it became Suplado Stories which is scheduled to be released this December. 

I just hope that I’ll be able to meet my deadline!
