    SO LOOOOVE the concept, the layout, the songs...
    okay, im close to being crazy here... you get the drift. can i get copies na? you should talk to warner or emi or anybody about the phil. release for crying out loud. :-D Or talk to me! promise to promote them for free. was thinking maybe you could use cross marketing for all your CDs, including the book (is it finished yet?)
    hehehe. agit ba?
    love it! love it! love it!
    walang halong bola.

    Thanks for your appreciation. Na-inspire na naman ako na tapusin na 'tong project ko na 'to.

    Kulang pa yung contents ng Part 3 ng trilogy e. Ipapasalin ko pa kay Cha yung files from reel to CD.

    Then yung Woes of Emong Payaso naman e 75% pa lang na tapos.

    Pero as soon na matapos yung buong set e I'll e-mail you so you can help me in anyway you can.

    Pero thanks sa suggestion about offering it to a recording company there. I'll see what I can do by asking my friends there in the music business. I'm thinking of Viva, since sila naman label/ producer ng album namin noon.

    Sana nga matuloy. I'm more for spreading our music than for the money.

    Yung Engkanto book e patuloy pa rin ang series sa newspaper dito. Okey nga e, habang tumatakbo e nakakapagdagdag ako ng chapters, kaya humahaba. Naisip ko just a few days ago e isang chapter na tungkol sa "Evolution/Creation of the Merpeople." Kung paano sila nag-exist in the beginning. Medyo ambitious, pero sana matapos ko tong concept na 'to. Napag-usapan nga namin ni Cha via phone a few days ago, kaya ginanahan akong i-pursue.

    Superbusy ako sa work, kaya bihira sa Net. Pero malapit na akong lumipat sa friend;s house, and I'll be more comfortable and free there. More time to spend on my writing din, kasi I'll have my privacy.

    hayaan mo, magkakaroon ka rin ng kopya ng mga eto. Bibigyan kita ng magandang discount, as soon na matapos na yung buong project na yan. Siguro sa Christmas e tapos na. If not e sa early next year.
