Thai BL dramas are gaining popularity among the young and old these days. In the Philippines alone, there had been a good number of events that showcased Thai talents from BL dramas who were able to successfully hold fan conventions. This year is no different and the next year will be nothing short of amazing! Mind you, tickets to those fan conventions, are running out fast if not sold out already. So, if you’re a die-hard fan of a BL couple and you want to meet them up close and personal, purchase those tickets now!
Having said that, as I am typing this entry, I am currently at an official fan gathering for Road to 2 Moons Over Manila.
This is an event organized by GxxodBas PH, KimCop Philippines, TaeTee PH, Tee Jaruji PH in cooperation with 2Moons PH and ThaiBL FanCon MNL.
A few months ago during the planning stage, my sister (who is busily in charge at the registration area as of writing) asked me if I wanted to try and attend a Thai BL fan gathering. To support something she’s been busy working on for about a few weeks now, I agreed. Pre-selled tickets were priced at Php200.00 (4USD) and Php250.00 (5USD) for walk-in participants. For a day of fun and “kilig”, it was worth it!
As a treat to the participants, ThaiBL FanCon MNL generously gave out 6 rehearsal passes for the 2 Moons Over Manila fanfest on November 11, 2017. The winners including those who were able to previously purchase their rehearsal passes will get to meet the lead stars of the hit BL drama from Thailand- 2 Moons. It’s not everyday that one gets the chance to gaze upon Pinnirat Suradej (Wayo), Thanit Itthipat (Phana), Kerdthongtavee Panuwat (Kit), Khemmonta Varodom (Ming), Kreepolrerk Darvid (Forth), and Jarujittranon Tanapol (Beam) up close!
The fan gathering offered a variety of “pakulo” (gimmick). Upon confirming my identity and reservation, they handed me a piece of paper with a task to complete. Ten lucky participants who will finish the challenge in record time will be receiving a randomly chosen gift.
By choice, I decided to be behind the scenes and leave the challege for other fans to enjoy. They got to play games and mingle with other supporters and shippers. The energy was so high most especially during the Moon and Star of Manila Competition and 12345 I Love You Dance Competition.
But mind you, what really got me excited were the prizes and giveaways. They got me oogling! Seriously.
They are too cute to ignore! So here’s a closer look at some of my favorites.
Kudos to the team for a successful event! As an expectator, I clearly saw how the organizers cared for the fans. While tickets for 2 Moons Over Manila are sold out since July, they took the time to come up with an activity that would cater to fans who were not able to purchase tickets for November 11.
#TeamAirport power on!
For now, here’s a very short clip that got everyone off their seats.
