Choose Your Adventure: June 15, 2013

No plans for this Saturday? Its time to choose your adventure.
Metro Manila has a lot in store for music, toy enthusiasts and artisans this Saturday.

For the Toy hobbyist

12th Philippine ToyCon X Hero Faceoff
Starting today until Sunday cosplayers and toy hobbyists get together for the biggest convention of the year. And yes, Alodia will be there tomorrow. You can look forward to finding rare toys, comics and knick-knacks from Japan or someone's bodega. Just be advised that if you are there to go shopping and not a crowd mixer, it would be convenient to go either today or on Sunday. Expect a busy crowd tomorrow, especially in the afternoon.
Venue: SM Megamall
Ticket: 100PHP
Official Site

For the Vintage-Artisan hunters and artsy-fartsy folks

Future Market
Crafters and artists come together in this hole-in-the-wall black market (of the sort). Unique finds such as cassette tapes and komiks to one-of-a-kind handmade products. This is a great venue to meet local artists and know their products and / or craft. Markets like these are hard to come by so you might as well take the chance to visit Escolta and maybe drop by Binondo for an authentic meal while you are in the area. To get a better idea of what to expect from Saturday Markets in Escolta like 98B on facebook.
Future Market will be from 9AM to 6PM.
Venue: 413 First United Building, Escolta Street, Binondo, Manila

For the music enthusiasts

There is an abundance of music events to choose from. There are indie, world and Kpop music events all happening tomorrow.


Join Muni PH's efforts to #CutTheCrap. This will be the campaign's culminating gig featuring Pedicab, Ciudad, Slow Hello, Your Imaginary Friends, No Rome and RomCom.  Be there to meet local entrepreneurs and the artists behind the ad campaigns. Listen to good music, win stuff and Save the Philippine Seas by simply disposing of cigarette butts properly. Learn more about the #CutTheCrap Campaign on Muni PH.

Jung Sungha Live in Manila
Yoututbe sensation Jung Sungha will be performing at the Newport Performing Arts Theater simultaneous to C.N. Blue's concert. If you are torn between seeing either of the two South Korean artists here is my advice: pick C.N. Blue for pop-jazz while Jung Sungha for music covers and acoustic-jazz.
