Neil Gaiman's Pilipinas trip

Astig, Neil Gaiman was actually here on our shores!

Too bad I didn't make time to go see him. But it's really nice to know that he liked it here! Check out what he had to say about his Philippine signings:

07/09 Saturday
There's a noise that a few thousand of the locals make when they all shout at once to let you know they're happy to see you that made me finally understand the idea of a wall of sound...

07/10 Sunday
So yesterday I did the local MTV (an MTV station so far out of the cultural mainstream that it still plays rock videos, how cool is that?...)

07/11 Monday
I don't think I've ever been more exhausted at any point in a signing tour than I am right now. (Having said that, I don't remember ever having felt so loved by so many people...)
PS. I think I'm now addicted to calamansi juice.

07/12 Tuesday
Leaving for the airport in a minute, in a thunderstorm of epic proportions. And I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who made my trip to the Philippines the most memorable trip ever...
