The event will take place at the Fountain area, Robinson’s Place , Bacolod City

And so for the past 12 years  the Negros Occidental Orchid Society has held this festival to showcase to everyone the inspiration of our cause: the waling-waling flower, also known as Vanda sanderana to those in possession of a green thumb.

It is our hope that it may serve as an inspiration to you the way it has for us, that you would find contentment and satisfaction in every delicate blossom of color and life.

There will be free public lectures and there is no entrance fees:


Aug 14, 3pm “Organic agriculture and its impact on food and health”

Aug 15, 3pm “Introduction to Philippine Native Species”

Note: I would like to ” Thank” Dr. John Clifton Martyr for the information – He is the current president of the society.

Collecticon 2010 update

Last October 3, the author personally went to Robinson’s Place in Manila to visit the Collecticon 2010. Unlike last year were Ondoy’s wrath and the sad stories of collectors who lost their collection from the flood.

There were about 80 commercial stalls and table bourse traders selling   different kinds of collectibles ranging from comics, die-cast toys, action figurine, stamps, bottles, car plate , anime , stuff toys , key chain, accessories among other stuffs.

Traders in anime costume complete with colorful hats

This year’s event was full of life and euphoria as thousands of people from all walks of life ( mostly teenagers, cos-players  and toys collectors)  went and participated actively in the collecticon 2010.

Coca-cola bottles (unopened / pristine condition ) for collection

Unlike other event , This is open to the public with no entrance fee !


You can see various collections being exhibited at the lobby and traders selling their goods. Various cos- players also added to the lively atmosphere of the mall. There was a live toy / collectibles auction were  starting bid started at  one  peso and some toys even reached several thousand of pesos !

action figures on sale

Just like any other  trade shows focusing on vintage stuffs , there are some sellers which are selling toys ( ukay-ukay ) .  Some of the toys are previously owned . These toys enjoy high patronage among the crowd with limited budget. Having a limited budget does not deter collectors to acquire toys or any vintage stuffs for their collection.

According to the traders, the organizers of Collecticon 2010 is also the same with the organizers of the much bigger Toy Convention .

Again, until the next event ! Congratulations to the event organizers .
