The Mario Maurer Experience


Part 1: The Fan Conference



A lot of my friends went "Sino ba siya?"....Wondering why I went out of my way just to see this Thai actor.




Mario, as in yung partner ni Luigi?
Me: =P

Bakit hindi diba? Hahaha!


When I learned that P'Shone is coming to town (parang Santa Claus lang e noh, hehe), I didn't expect that Publicity Asia will treat us with free passes to both the Fan Conference and the Penshoppe PFW show! Sobrang spoiled kami kay Ms. Jad! Thank you sooo much!


Went to PICC early last Friday with Krissy and Mich, fan girl mode on!

Kahit hindi ako morning-person, go go go ako dito!....

...Till I saw this line...Sa katirik-tirikan ng arawan. =/ Worth it ba to!? was my thought balloon:


We went to the people sa front desk by the entrance to ask about our media passes, they told us we still need to line up. Swear, gusto ko mahimatay!


Mga tiis-ganda girls for Mario Maurer! Krissy and her friend Mich!


...And me! Lakas maka payong, ayaw umitim lalo, hehe. :P



Pagandahan ng payong ang peg, haha.



While in line, Rosette and her friend approached me! Finally met you girl! Also learned that they're both Thomasians! Alamnyoyan, lakas niyo kagad sakin basta magic word e fellow USTedyante! Hehehe:
Cute girls. :) O diba, may instant chikahan pa kami while in line, hehehe.


Then the line started to move, sa wakas umusad din! Nung tanaw ko na yung front door ng PICC, we were kidding na "Tara mag pa Wensha spa nalang tayo!" Hahaha.


When we got in, we were seated sa suuuuper layong area. Though naappreciate ko bigla ang elconditioner. Hehehe.


Hay layo. :P

Then fellow blogger Keigh, whom I've been texting with since asa pilahan kami, called me and told me na iba ang entrance ng VIP and Press! :P We met up by the entrance of the hall, and Keigh guided us to the press ID station...Line Free. NAKAKALOKAAA!


They even had a buffet lunch earlier! Hayayay sayang! Food! Haha!


Better seats also!

Gusto ko maiyak, magwala, magreklamo at makapatay (ng ants) sa irita na dinanas namin of lining up for 45minutes sa ilalim ng araw, but then...May magagawa pa ba ako? Instead of attracting more bad vibes, I decided to just be thankful na we're in, thanks to Keigh girl! :)



Penshoppe-cladded! With blog sisters Keigh and Krissy!


Thank you talaga Keigh for informing us! :) Love you girl! Sayang di tayo umabot sa kainan, hahaha! 


Then the show started! Natetense me bigla!
VJ Utt! The host for the fan con.


Victor Basa was also there!


They also had lots of vid presentations...LOVET! Prepared! Hehehe!

The very first members of the Club Pen! Cooool natatandaan ko to...


Sir Bernie Liu and wife Madam Alice. Sir Bernie is the President and CEO of Golden ABC--meaning, siya ang nagdala dito kay Chuck Bass and Mario Maurer! 


The effortless ang pagka pretty, Solenn H. (di ko maspell yung surname, hahaha sorry ;P)


Introducing Penshoppe's new logo...


From this...


To this!
They also informed us of the new concept store in the Mall of Asia!


VJ Utt interviewing the funny and witty Jake Galvez and IC Mendoza!


And finally...Nag dim ang lights, and may pa-countdown pa! Akkk... Lakas maka-kaba!




Galeng nun heartbeat effects... Natense ako akala mo talagang old-time crush, "First Love" ala P'Nam ko si Mario kung maka goosebumps ako, hahaha!


...And then, there was light! Hahaha.


My God ang tilian! Pano ba namaaaan....


Itaas ang mga cameras!!!


Ms. Joyce Ramirez of Publicity Asia interviewed Mario Maurer:



Then they picked someone from the audience to teach Mario how to Dougie! O diba, napaka hip lang. Hahaha.


They also let Mario pick 5 fans for a photo op...
Mario: No, let's make it 10!

Pagandahan sila ng posters! Lovet! Fan girl din ako, kung UST game to binandera ko na jersey ni Jic para ako mapili, hahaha!


After dances and tilian, Mario was asked for his last few words before the fan con commenced...


Mario: I have many words. I really appreciate you line up for 4 hours or more than 4 hours. I love you all. (Me: Awwwww, love ko na siya!!!)
I love that Mario Maurer is a sweet and unassuming celebrity. He was asked if ineexpect ba niya ang ganitong kadaming nagmamahal sa kanya, and he said he wasn't expecting this kind of attendance and attention. I love that he is very appreciative of his fans, and even asked one of the fans' tarpaulin because he wanted to bring it home daw with him in Thailand. Ang sweet niya.


The happy kids!


Krissy Cruz


Mich Cabdusan


Keigh Jalbuena

Gray Skirt - Thrifted
Nude Flats - Australian
Leopard Print Sling Bag - Rubi
Heart Necklace - Anagon Collection


We were all super happy and very contented with the experience, and decided to continue our bonding time sa MOA. Keigh brought a car with her, so we headed to the other exit near the parking. When we reached the door, the big bouncer didn't let us pass first, and even cornered us to the wall next to PICC's entrance. Nafeel na nila Keigh that Mario will be passing by...So they tried to prepare their cams, but I was too kabado na to get mine.

And they did passed by. Ms. Joyce went down the car first. Lots of the people outside tried to ask for a photo with Mario, but more bouncers ang humarang sa kanila (automatic! hanep!). When the Mario entourage passed by my group to get in PICC, everyone was quiet as if holding their breaths (seryoso!). Eh alam niyo naman, sanay na sanay na fangirl ang lola niyo! I took the chance when Mario was just 3 steps away from me...I broke the silence with these words: "MARIO! Hello!"


He turned to us, said "Hi!", and flashed us his to.die.for smile.




Men! Natunaw ako!!! Hay, Oh Mariooo!




When we went down the steps outside PICC, girls I can't help et, napatili ata ako in public!
"Grabeeeee!!!!! Feel na feel kong ako si P'nam!!!!" Hahaha!


First glance, sigh.




thanks keigh jalbuena for the three clear mario photos :)
