The 32nd Manila International Book Fair entrance.
Last September 17, 2011, the 32nd Manila International Book Fair was held at SMX Convention Center at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The book fair was participated by different publishing companies and bookstores in the Philippines, supported by SM Mall of Asia as the main venue for this event. I visited various booths in the said book fair from educational books which offers encyclopedias and discuss lessons in different school subjects for student to religious and inspirational books which help to improve our spiritual life.
In the said book fair, right after I visited the religious and educational sections, I visited the PSICOM booth where they publish cookbooks, anime magazines, horror stories, and humor books. In the said booth, I saw the comedian Tado Jimenez with his signing of his book entitled "Ikatlo sa Huling Libro." While waiting, I bought the three Chopsticks series and Suplado Tips book for only P50.00 each with the total of P200.00. Then right after thirty minutes of waiting and visiting different booths, the Fil-Chinese cartoonist, stand up comedian, host and the author of comics strip Chopsticks and the bestselling book Suplado Tips, Stanley Chi arrived in the booth. In the book fair, I completed the three Chopsticks series and the Suplado Tips book which he signed all the four books he wrote. Although he is a suplado, he is a very nice and accommodating person.

Therefore, this book fair is successful because of the people who attended this event ranging from students to teachers, from young professionals to executives, from book lovers to bloggers and most of all to the authors, educators, and management and staff of different publishing companies who participated in the said event as well with the SM Mall of Asia management, kudos for the successful event.
