Picture this: November 2006, you are at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, it was a beautiful Saturday morning, a calm, cool, and warm Saturday morning. You skip your only morning Saturday subject in college to go to the venue.
What's Next with TV5's Anime Gamble?, Musings from a Kapamilya, and A decade of reminiscing.
