It’s Friday the 13th, but the only thing that we’re scared of here is just how little time we have to check out all the cool stuff happening this weekend. Let’s get this party started. [firstpara]
We’ve been howling about CELManila these past couple weeks, and finally it’s here—the biggest, baddest gadget, tech, and all-things-geek convention this side of Manila. From November 13 to 15, the halls of World Trade Center in Pasay will be loaded with geektastic stuff from robot demonstrations to cosplay fashion shows, and even a concert, so make sure not to miss it! Here’s the full event schedule:
November 13, Friday
There will be a robotics demonstration of Philippine Robotics Team fresh from the 2009 Robotics Olympiad in Korea, a Cosplay Fashion Show by Canon, a Karaoke contest sponsored by Memorex, and at 430PM today, a gig brought to you by Philips.
