After our grandest display event last month, you’d think that our team would be resting on its laurels now, but no. This January 21-22, Otakuzine will once again be holding Otaku Expo at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1 and yup, you guessed it, we’re having another display for all of you. If you will remember, we also participated in the 2011 edition of the said event and in my opinion, that was one of the more memorable displays that we had so I’m very optimistic that this will be just as memorable. What to expect? Well, more figures of course. We’ll be showcasing some of the first figures that came out in 2012 so expect some new faces to be seen. For now, we don’t have much details regarding the event itself but on our part, we’ll be opening slots for volunteering of figures soon so stay tuned. What better way to celebrate the new year than with a new convention! We hope to see all of you at our event and hopefully you can once again visit our booth to see our gorgeous display.

The Embassy of Brazil, Manila, Havaianas and Power Plant Mall present
"BRASILIPINAS 2012: AXE MANILA CARNAVAL"
Fashion show by SOFA, Authentic Brazilian Food by Chef Carla Abaya, Booze by Super Bock, Limited edition Brasilipinas shirts by Collezione C2.
FREE "Caipirinha" inspired drinks FROM THE HAVAIANAS BEACH BAR!!!!!!!
Fresh from a stellar 25th anniversary year in which leading fashion brand PENSHOPPE showed every other local apparel group how a leveled up campaign should be, the label now continues its brand-repositioning process, with the goal of reinforcing its position as the top of the mind brand for years to come.
So what can we expect from PENSHOPPE this 2012? Traditional casual wear with clean nautical touches. Color blocking. Light fabrics that are easy to wear. “The latest campaign is more relaxed and approachable. Definitely feel good fashion with a casual edge,” shares Brand Director Alex Mendoza. “Trends to look forward to over the year are more vivid use of colors, clean silhouettes, acid wash jeans and our highly popular varsity jackets.”
Consequently, PENSHOPPE kicks off its Pre-Summer 2012 campaign with a modern take on cheerful wardrobe fundamentals such as jeans, shirts, jackets and other signature style as fronted by the brand’s strongest brand presenters: Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick, Asian superstar Mario Maurer and local “it” girl Solenn Heussaff.
CASUAL COOL: The New Kind of HOT
There are many reasons why a smart, sensible guy’s girlfriend would take one long look at Ed Westwick’s latest campaign for PENSHOPPE and run to the store – boyfriend in tow. After his surreal visit to Manila last year much to the amazement of fans and fashion observers alike, it seems apparent that to create a Chuck Bass out of every guy became every girl’s 2012 resolution.
To start off the new year Ed remains as PENSHOPPE’s biggest level up ammunition and for one very good reason: There is no one out there who can pull it off the way Ed can.
Simply put, there is no other Chuck Bass.
Starting the New Year with a SMILE
If Ed Westwick is considered by many as PENSHOPPE’s marketing ammo, then it is fair to say that Asian heartthrob Mario Maurer is the brand’s sales catalyst. Soon after the 23 year old was signed last August sporting the brand’s now famous varsity jacket, the item immediately went out of stock – early on proving that anything the kid touches turns into gold.
And that was just the beginning. Indeed, anything that Mario wears from his PENSHOPPE collection sells fast: jacket, jeans, shirt, shoes, you name it - even a cap. Proving his incredible cult-like following among teenagers as well as young adults, anything he models are likely to fire up fans to line up and buy across PENSHOPPE stores nationwide.
It’s HIP to be “IT”
Solenn Heussaff is not just a pretty face – she is a powerful female influencer. Prior to her entry into local showbiz, it was PENSHOPPE who discovered her years ago when she was just modeling. Since then, Solenn has fronted some of the brand’s most memorable campaigns.
With more than 440,000 plus followers on Twitter to date, the French-Filipina has sure come a long way since first being discovered by PENSHOPPE. She also possesses a sophisticated personal style that makes her the perfect female lead for what is now considered the Philippines’ fashion powerhouse.

Event: RACECHIP PHILIPPINES' CHIPS&CHICKS
Date: JAN 18, 2012
Location: EXCESS SUPERCLUB, QC
Time: 8PM on wards
Excess SuperClub is located along Timog in Quezon City, opposite Rockville, the bar co-owned by Arnel Pineda. How to get there? Read on.
From south of Metro Manila e.g. Alabang, Pacita, Metropolis Star Mall, Filinvest Mall, Ayala Alabang and southern tagalog provinces of Laguna, Batangas and Quezon. Take the skyway and exit in Magallanes. Turn right onto EDSA via Magallanes interchange. Stay to the middle of EDSA and drive all the way to Quezon City, passing through Ayala Tunnel, Cubao tunnel and flyovers of Ortigas and Santolan. After passing through tunnel of Cubao or Cubao underpass, you must avoid getting onto the Kamuning Flyover because this flyover passes through two intersections - Kamuning/Kamias and Timog. Your destination is Timog so you need to go under the flyover. Cross the intersection of Kamuning/Kamias. If you're confuse, Kamias is the opposite road of Kamuning. Kamias is to the righ of EDSA if you're coming from Makati. Kamuning is it's opposite road to your left if you're coming from Makati. Next intersection is for East Avenue to the right and opposite to it is Timog Avenue. Cross that intersection and make a U-Turn onto Timog Avenue . Turn right onto Timog Avenue where the GMA Network, Inc. (Channel 7) is located. Stay to the middle of Timog and drive all the way until you see up ahead the Boy Scout Circle, it's a rotonda or roundabout where Timog Avenue and Tomas Morato Avenue intersect. Stay to the left after you cross Scout Torillo Street, the last street before the Boy Scout Circle. Excess Super Club is located before the Boy Scout Circle, around 50-100 meters from the circle, to your left, opposite Rockville across Timog Avenue. There's a lot of parking space along Timog so all you need to do is make a U-Turn when you already see Excess Super Club.
The driving direction given above can also be taken by those drivers from Makati, Mandaluyong, Pasig and Pasay vicinity who'd like to get to Timog Avenue, GMA Network, Inc. (GMA-7), Imperial Palace Suites and of course Excess Super Club via EDSA.
From north of Metro Manila, e.g. Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela - Take EDSA all the way to Scout Borromeo. Stay to the middle of EDSA, crossing the Congressional/Roosevelt intersection in Munoz and West Avenue where SM City North Edsa is located to your left. After West Avenue, you must pass through the Quezon Avenue Flyover. While you're on the flyover, stay to the right of the flyover. After passing through Quezon Avenue flyover, stay to your lane. The first street after your descent from the flyover is Eugenio Lopez. As soon as you passed by Eugenio Lopez Street, watch out for the broken white lines that gives direction for private vehicles from EDSA into the Scout Borromeo Street. Avoid MMDA apprehension, drive smart, follow traffic rules and regulations. Once you see the white broken lines running diagonally to the next street after Eugenio Lopez which is the Scout Borromeo, turn on signal lights, change your lane, follow the broken lines and turn right onto the Scout Borromeo Street. There's a Jollibee one block before Scout Borromeo. Drive on Scout Borromeo, cross Samar Avenue. Next intersection is Sgt. Esguerra Avenue. After Scout Borromeo crossed Sgt. Esguerra Avenue, it turns to the right and another road appears to the left of Scout Borromeo. This street is Scout Ybardolaza. Take this street. Cross the next street of Scout Madrinan and finally turn right onto Timog Avenue. Along Timog Avenue, cross Scout Torillo Street, the last street before you reach Boy Scout Circle which is at this point is already visible from the distance. Stay to the left. Excess Super Club is located before the Boy Scout Circle, around 50-100 meters from the circle, to your left, opposite Rockville across Timog Avenue. There's a lot of parking space along Timog so all you need to do is make a U-Turn when you already see Excess.
This driving direction can also be taken by those driving from Bulacan via NLEX and into EDSA, as well as from Quirino Avenue, Novaliches and nearby areas who are going to Timog Avenue, Tomas Morato Avenue, and of course Excess. Other destination here is the Imperial Palace Suites, located exactly in the corner of Tomas Morato Avenue and Timog Avenue, by the Boy Scout Circle. If you're going to GMA Network, Inc. or Channel 7, just pass by Scout Borromeo, stay to the right, avoid the Kamuning Flyover, until you see the GMA Network Headquarters. Don't turn right onto the street before Timog. This street is GMA Network Drive and it's one way street going to EDSA.
If you're coming from Malate or Ermita area, take Taft Avenue, Roxas Boulevard or Mabini and get to Quiapo via Quezon Bridge and onto Quezon Boulevard and then take the Quezon Boulevard Underpass. While driving down the underpass, stay to the right and turn right onto Espana in the middle of the underpass. There's another slip lane or road that runs perpendicular from the middle of Quezon Boulevard underpass to the right, it's going to Espana. So it's important that you're staying to the right of Quezon Boulevard underpass as soon as you descend. Stay to the middle of Espana and drive all the way until you're traversing Quezon Avenue, passing by Welcome Rotonda. You'll cross the intersection of Quezon Avenue and Araneta Avenue. After that you'll pass by a huge Sogo Hotel located at the corner of Roces Avenue and Quezon Avenue to the right. You'll also pass by Capitol Medical Center which is located at Scout Magbanua Street. At this point you must stay to the right of Quezon Boulevard. Next street is Scout Reyes. After Scout Reyes is the Y junction of Timog Avenue. Turn right onto Y intersection of Timog Avenue. Stay to the middle until you get to the Boy Scout Circle. Go with the traffic flow, pass Tomas Morato and back to Timog again. After a while, Excess comes into view to your right, opposite Rockville to the left of Timog, around 50-100 meters from Boy Scout Circle or rotonda.
This driving direction can also be taken from T.M. Kalaw Street, Maria Orosa Street corner U.N. Avenue where Holiday Inn is located, Robinson's Place Ermita, Adriatico Street, Remedios Street, Padre Burgos Street and other nearby areas by driver's who'd like to get to Timog Avenue, Tomas Morato Avenue, Imperial Palace Suites and GMA Network, Inc. or GMA Channel-7. To get to GMA-7 just go straight ahead, passing by Excess along Timog Avenue up to GMA Network Drive. Turn left on GMA Network drive opposite 11th Jamboree Street to get to GMA Network Building.
How to get to Excess Super Club in Timog by jeepney
There are two routes of passenger jeepney that pass by Boy Scout Circle where Excess is located around 50-100 meters away. Boy Scout Circle is the rotonda or roundabout in a technical term where Tomas Morato Avenue and Timog Avenue intersect.
The first route is from EDSA corner Kamuning Road. So you won't get lost wherever in Metro Manila you're coming from. Just ride a bus, but make sure the sign of the bus contains any of these words: "Fairview", "East Avenue", "SSS" and "Philcoa". You can always ask the conductor, anyway. Make sure you get off at Kamias or Kamuning. If you're confuse, Kamias is the opposite road of Kamuning. Kamias is to the righ of EDSA if you're coming from Makati. Kamuning is it's opposite road to your left if you're coming from Makati. Now, at the corner of EDSA and Kamuning or Kamias, a lot of passenger jeepneys going to Quiapo stop to pick up passengers. Do not ride these jeepneys. Wait for jeepneys with any of the following signs: "Welcome Rotonda", "Pantranco" and "Roces". Note: If you're commuting to Capitol Medical Center or Sogo Hotel from EDSA-Kamuning, then this is the jeepney route to take. Ride one of these jeepneys and ask driver to drop you off at Imperial Palace, that's the common reference known to driver. Don't say Rockville or Boy Scout Circle. Imperial Palace is the known landmark there. As soon as you get off, you'll see the huge building of Imperial Palace Suites. Go toward the direction of Imperial Palace Suites. On the side of Imperial Palace that occupies Timog Avenue, walk away from the Imperial Palace and the Boy Scout Circle. You'll see many bars and karaoke next to Imperial Palace. Next to Music bank is the Rockville. And opposite Rockville across Timog is the Excess Super Club.
This direction is the best route for commuters from Fairview, Commonwealth, Philcoa, Project 2-3 and those from other area who prefer bus instead of train in going to Timog Avenue, Tomas Morato Avenue, Imperial Palace, GMA Network, Inc. or GMA Channel-7 and Excess.
The second route is from Welcome Rotonda. The sign of jeepneys that plies this route contains either "Proj. 2-3" or "Timog". Now, confusion might arise that will lead to wrong direction. That's because there are also jeepneys from Quiapo with the same sign, "Proj. 2-3", that pass by Welcome Rotonda. Do not ride any of these jeepneys. They take different route, via E. Rodrigues Avenue. You will get lost the moment you ride a Project 2-3 bound jeepney from Quiapo. What you do is go across E. Rodriguez where the Project 2-3 bound via Timog jeepney stop to pick up passengers. These jeepneys are the ones who pick up passengers in EDSA-Kamuning. They take Quezon Avenue from Welcome Rotonda and turn right onto Timog Avenue. So the key here is Quezon Avenue route and not E. Rodriguez. Ride one of these jeepneys and ask driver to drop you off at Imperial Palace, that's the common reference known to driver. Don't say Rockville or Boy Scout Circle. Imperial Palace is the known landmark there. As soon as you get off, you'll see the huge building of Imperial Palace Suites. Go toward the direction of Imperial Palace Suites. On the side of Imperial Palace that occupies Timog Avenue, walk away from the Imperial Palace and the Boy Scout Circle. You'll will see many bars and karaoke next to Imperial Palace. Next to Music Bank is the Rockville. And opposite Rockville across Timog is the Excess.
This direction is the best route to take from Espana, Quiapo, UST, Dimasalang and other nearby areas.
How to get to Excess Super Club in Timog by MRT or LRT
You can get to Timog by MRT-3 and the station here is called GMA-Kamuning Station. After you get off the train in GMA-Kamuning Station, walk toward the corner of Timog Avenue and EDSA where the headquarters of GMA Network, Inc. or GMA Channel-7 is located. Wait for a jeepney along Timog Avenue. These jeepneys are bound for Cubao via Timog, but they turn left way too far from Excess. As soon as the jeepney you're riding turns left, get off and walk your way to the Boy Scout Circle or rotonda. You won't miss it as it's very visible from the distance. Excess is located before the Boy Scout Circle, around 50-100 meters from the circle, to your left, opposite Rockville.
If the nearest station to you is LRT-2, then ride a train there and get off at Araneta Center-Cubao Station and walk your way to MRT-3 Farmers Cubaao Station. MRT-3 and LRT-2 are linked together by a crossway that passes through Gateway Mall, Araneta Coliseum and Farmers Plaza. Ride a northbound train or North Station train and get off at GMA-Kamuning Station. Follow direction to Rockville given at the preceding paragraph.
These directions via MRT and LRT is the best route to take for commuters from San Juan, Santa Mesa, Pasig, Sampaloc, Legarda, Mandaluyong, Makati, Pasay, Baclaran, Paranaque, Marikina, Santolan, Project 4, Cubao and other nearby areas coming to Timog Avenue, Tomas Morato, GMA Network, Imperial Palace and of course Excess.
