I was planning on putting these photos up here some five months ago, but due to my disappointment and bitterness over the whole event, I never bothered to even remove the photos from my camera memory. Last October of 2013 I attempted to enter the GBWC (Gunpla Builders World Cup) in the Philippines, and failed miserably on my mission.
June 2013: Just got home from my work abroad and I was thinking of seeing some Gundam related event that is happening locally, and fortunately enough, it was Gundam contest season. After consulting Mr. Google, I found that the GBWC is going to be held on October of the same year. The thing I was waiting for is within my reach! To make the long story short, October came, I got my MG Gunpla kits that I’m planning on entering and went to the contest venue to get enlisted. I was so excited and thrilled, I have never seen so much Gunpla exhibit before. I asked the staff for the contest requirements and I complied to nearly all the requirements except for one, the Gunpla must be bought from their store only and they need the original receipt as proof that you did bought it from them. Three months of anticipation and all that effort preparation of just getting there went to waste, my hope of even getting into the new challenger category came crashing and burning. The staff gave me a contest flyer, even though it’s clear I can’t enter my work. Bitter and disappointed, I left the scene without even looking back and tried to bury the memory of all of it in the deepest regions of my consciousness. Fortunately enough, before all the bitterness I was able to take some interesting photos and without further delay here are my pics of the 2013 GBWC venue at the Robinsons Magnolia, QC.
After the disappointment, I refused to go back home empty handed so, I bought this:
With the upcoming Gundam Model Kit Contest this May, I just hope that I make the cut this time.
