    @sambarboo Wish I was there too but I'm still in Tokyo. I'll probably make the other event we have at the end of this month though. . . at least that's the plan.

    I just got into Manila for an event we are attending this weekend. We'll have a booth and be running the Ring Toss for the organizers and doing our regular kendama thing at the Cosplay Carnival Saturday and Sunday.

    Here are some pix (on FB) from the Cosplay Carnival mentioned above. Two long days teaching tons of people how to play kendama. It was a blast but my legs are going to need a bit of time to recover.

    Here's the result of the meet-up with ABS-CBN TV news in Manila. (news article with embedded video)


    Facebook post:



    The only downside was they were unable to mention (news program rules) @goenKendama or our restaurant where they filmed the kendama players but it's still a killer article IMO. Woot! Go Philippines!

    Continuing the activities in Cebu/Mandaue. We went to 6 schools in 2 days Sept 11&12 in Mandaue (near Cebu). We even met the mayor of Mandaue and had a police escort going between the schools; pretty cool. Check the photos here on Facebook.






    What do you do when you have 50 kids and only 10 kendama . . . Unicorn Relay!
