i almost missed this year’s manila international book fair, realized that the event was already ongoing when i saw people hoarding books in my newsfeed, lol. was able to drop by on the last day and there were still lots of people milling around.

immediately went to see fully booked’s artwork, it’s pretty cool just like last year’s. kind of like outer space meets the ocean.

dropped by adarna house, they have cute books! was super interested in the supremo shirts… those are for kids though and i felt really old going to this booth. haha.

went to tahanan books and stayed here mostly because their booth is so pretty. they even had balloons arranged like trees… mango trees, i think.

they showcase all the philippine stuff… filipino stories, filipino food, the philippine alphabet, all that sort. i bought the ‘inside manila with kids’ book, because of the artwork. it was old though but was on sale and had nice tips inside.

the cheapest, most sensible, fun paper pads, stamped with lines like ‘iisipin ko pa’ and ‘mamaya maya’.

and lots more of the sort, specially liked the ‘planner ng pasaway’. i almost bought it but decided i didn’t want my planner to be ‘pasaway’, heehee.

other stuff that i found interesting was a spanish movie poster that had paper cut design and the rex book museum, it had an egyptian theme to it which didn’t really go with the crown logo but still looked pretty royal though.

they also sold plants and seeds this year! bookworms and plant lovers unite, hahaha! i wish they’d sell succulents too, some of the flower seeds are pretty hard to grow in our climate. so eun, went home after ogling the plants, i hope they’ll have more of these next year.

yun lang.
