DEJA VU....

So much for the magpie issue na....! The magpie saga ends here now....! I'm already avoiding the other side of the road though she's still keeping a vicious look in my direction at times, but not attempting to proceed anymore which is good....!


I wanna touch a topic about books and comic-books triggered by Tina's entry in her blog.... I call it " Deja vu " because when i was reading that entry, i had this funny flash back memory of how i was before as a kid....!


When i was about 8 or 9 years old, i always jump accross bamboo fence at my grandmother's place just to avoid being caught wandering outside.... My plan was to cross to that house just next door once belongs to my mother's uncle....


He owned a little comics-store in one part of his living room that was turned into benches and shelves that time....! It was great having a comics-store owner for a relative then ha-ha....!


I've enjoyed going there alot to read, specially it was for free ha-ha....! I've never missed any issues of Marvel super heroes, Spiderman, Batman and Robin, Green lantern....etc. Also Books like, Casper, Richie Rich, Archie, and even the book version of Looney Tunes, Charlie Brown at madami pang iba na hindi ko na halos maalala ang mga titles....!


Those are all original volumes ng mga comics and books na talagang worth collecting....! I then found-out that at the end of the year, every christmas ay basta na lang nya pinaglalagay sa shredder ang mga ito para gawing parang yung mga grass sa " Belen " every christmas season....! Sayang ano....?!


In short, ay hiningi ko na nga ang mga old comics and books na umabot sa isang carton box talaga ang dami at kandahirap kami halos na buhatin yun ng mga kapatid ko ha-ha....!


It was a fiesta of comics that day....! We even agreed to devide those amongst ourselves at kanya-kanya nang basa at hiraman....! Hindi ko lang talaga maalala kung anong nangyari sa mga yun at bigla na lang na nawala....! Obviously, napabayaan o napunit na ang mga yun....


Nakakapanghinayang lang.... Hindi ko pa talaga kasi alam nun ang value nya in the future.... No one of us brothers really thought of keeping and collecting those items before that will be of great value pala nowadays if we only did manage to take care of all those....!


Imagine having in your collection the complete editions of Marvel super hero and other comics or comic-books....! Astig di ba....? Anyways, don't cry over spilled milk na lang daw....! It's never too late naman to start collecting all-over again, yun nga lang ay maghihintay na naman ako ng 20 - 50 years or so before na maging rare-collections na naman ang mga ito ha-ha....!


I'd say, the passion of collecting itself lang is an amazing experience na.... Whatever it may be na gusto mong i-collect ay hindi mahalaga, importante ay happy ka sa collecting hobby mo di ba....?


By the way, i'm starting to collect coins nowadays ha-ha....! It's alot more fun because some new and old issues are really hard to get by which made it more exciting once you find another one....! Exit na ulit ako....! Until next entry all....!

Sayang ano?
I remember being the same years back. May Xmen comic books pa kami. But I was particularly into Filipino komiks, you know, Funny komiks, Aliwan, Holiday Horror, Wakasan, etc... Now the komiks industry in the Philippines is dying. Those were the good, old days of my youth ... as if ang gurang na gid ah... ahihihi.
I have coins, but I am not keen on collecting them. My younger sis is the avid collector in the family - coins, notes, stamps - all there is! Ako lang ang ga-contribute sa iya collection. Wanna have some Thai, HK, Sri Lankan and Malaysian coins?

Thanks for the comments Zj and Tina....! Masyado yata kayong dalawa na-carried away dun sa story ko at pati na sarili nyong collections ay ipinamimigay nyo na ha-ha....! Mas-exciting pa rin syempre kung nahanap ko lang na kusa he-he....! Itago nyo na lang ang mga yan at baka in the future ay magkakaroon kayo ng ganang mag-collect e sayang naman kung ipinamigay nyo na di ba....? =D Salamat talaga, itago nyo na lang ang mga yan at in the future ay magugulat na lang kayo kung gaano yan ka valuable....

Comics...ok let's reminisce, well way way back then, I used to remember me and my kuya were also into comics -funny komiks. As in every issue binibili namin noon kalungkot nga lang at naanod na yun ng mga nagdaang bagyo kaya naglaho ang collection namin.
