    I knew it, Ginny. You had that Palpatinian streak in you! Another closet Palpatine fan I see....

    Any updates regarding this Saturday?

    No updates regarding the venue yet. But definitely, 2pm. I'm doing a headcount back at the group, would you mind counting here, if any of the others post a confirmation of their attendance? Thanks.

    I will end my headcount at exactly 2 am, Thursday morning. Philippine Time.

    Ginny, I'll try to call you ASAP. I hope we can decide on a venue by Thrusday, so that the gods here will know about it early.

    Hello there everyone! I was searching through to see what new boards were up and was plesantly surprised to find this one!

    My father is from Panay, and my mother was born to missionaries that were stationed there also. Long story later, I am from Indiana.

    Congrats on getting your own forum and if any of you find yourselves in the Hoosier State sometime, you are more than welcome to hang out with the IndyKnights!

    yep... seriously... lol.

    I visited the islands a few years ago. It was really neat to see where my mom and dad grew up.

    Where are all you guys from?

    My father taught biology at Central Philippine University it Iloilo for a while before getting married to my mom and moving to the states... that is how they ended up here in Indiana, he got a job teaching at a small college in Indianapolis.

    He was always very proud of his heritage and with some other philippinos that he met, started a Philippino Cultural Society here called the Baragay Club. They are still going strong and they do charitable outreaches, have parties and participate in the local International Festival. (I had to dress up and dance some traditional dances when I was a kid... lol)

    Am I boring you guys?

    Hi there.

    I was born in the Philippines, but moved here to New York City when I was 8. Most of my family is still in the Philippines, though some reside here in The States. I'm a big Star Wars fan (I'm sure you guys are, as well).

    Anyway, I hope this board will be active,so I can stop by here often!

    Hey guys! I'm the FanForce Rep for Star Wars Philippines! Welcome! Welcome all!

    Drop by the boards more often, it would be fun to hook up with Filipino SW fans from abroad too!

    Ah...the wonders of the internet.

    And no, Queen Karendala...you don't bore us. :)

    Hi!

    It's me the Sith Lord from Singapore again. :p

    I was just wondering, how was the AOTC Premiere in Philippines like back around May 16th? Was there any Charity Premiere or did anyone capture any SW Fans dressed up in SW Costumes at the May 16th Premiere?

    Just curious. ;)

    If you want to see what some of us did on May 11th to May 15/16th, check out this link (just cut and paste the link cause Geocities don't allow remote linking :( )

    Will load more once I get to redo my website at Admiral Power's Star Destroyer! ;)

    Thanks!

    Hmmm...The premieres weren't really costuming occasions here. Although I really wanted to come in costume, I didnt finish it on time.

    There were various premieres held, and we are not just talking about the midnight screenings. But a blast nevertheless.

    Globe Telecom, a local telecommunications company, sponsored a Star Wars party, co-sponsored by E! Philippines. I don't know how it went, since I arrived late.

    What else...hmmm (guys, help me out here. The monsoon rains have washed my brain away. LOL)

    Are there any DLP screens there yet? I've only seen AOTC on DLP, not on a film print.

    No DLP's here as of now, unfortunately. The Philippines is only, after all, a glorified Tatooine.

    Kidding.

    Maybe we'll have DLP's in about...5 years more or less. That's what I think.
