Sunday's our church day and we usually attend 12:15pm mass but not this time, hubs didn't want to be late for this event so we decided to just attend the afternoon mass after the show. We headed straight to hp pavilion knowing there might be an exhibit for us to enjoy. As early as 1pm people were starting to crowd the area and the show starts @ 2pm. We decided to walk around first and see what they have around aside from all the souvenirs and programs being sold there. We were so delighted to see cute kids all dressed up as Star Wars characters, only if I had my trusty camera with me... I could've snapped hundred of photos! (hehehe I'm quite a shutterbug)

...what do think of the shirt I got?...

We really didn't buy any of the souvenirs because it's way too pricey! The had numerous shirts, sweaters and other stuffs for sale but priced from $25 up. The program which is a softcover book contains a rare assemblage of images and articles, including a personal message by John Williams and a profile on the music of the
Star Wars saga by Michael Matessino. The imagery features breathtaking scenic spreads and rare behind-the-scenes photos from all 6 films and scoring sessions @ $30. We passed on all those collectibles luckily for hubs I got him a Star Wars shirt last Friday when I went for a little shopping in Kohl's which is more reasonably priced @ $10.

Here are some nice artworks displayed there. These are large format prints of the original backgrounds for the entire saga. Do you recognize any of the background artworks which episode was it used?

    I guess all this souvenirs are very pricey right? Because they know can charge fans premium price. :)

  3. Tekkaus Says:

    Hmm...I'm not sure which episode they were used but I know they all look familiar to me. I guess your hubs can tell! :p

  4. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I always enjoy hearing from you and reading your blog.

    I hope you will try the recipe. I think you and your husband will like it. Blessings.

  5. I enjoy watching the whole old Star Wars series, but not the new ones that much!

    It's a small world, Ayie! I saw your name on those that you've mentioned too.. :-)

  6. Star wars is cool and it brings back old memories. I'm more of an old-school fan. and i think i enjoyed 'Empire Strikes Back' best.

  7. levian Says:

    wow, the shirt's drawing was awesome!
    i love that particularly. that was one of those priced $25?

    but i do enjoy a good movie. :)

  10. Usually, items on box office movie are quite expensive. Nevertheless, I wish they could come here to promote star wars. I watched all the episodes and I still like them.


  11. Superman Says:

    Luckily I am not a starwars fans. If not, I guess I will be bankrupt buying all those collectible stuffs.

  12. donna Says:

    hey, thank you for droppin' by my page and giving witty and techy suggestions. i like it! will try your tips when i find time (i always run out of time,haha!), thanks again! happy wednesday!

  15. I remember when Star Wars first came out 30 some years ago. The radio said only about 5% of people hadn't seen it in theaters. That's me. I did eventually see it on video years and year later. It really was the pioneer of special effects the way PONG was the pioneer of video games.

  16. ladyviral Says:

    Oh I love the star wars t-shirt you got! the art is nice. It is not made china right? ahahah :P.

  17. foongpc Says:

    I like your Tshirt! But I prefer to get something more fancy like a lightsabre or something. Haha

  18. For sure my son would love to have one of these gifts, mainly that t-shirt!Cool! :)

  19. zakkalife Says:

  20. Bengbeng Says:

  21. Mummy Gwen Says:

    I'm surprised you didn't bring your camera with you hehe. Cool merchandise. I'm not a Star Wars fan so I don't quite know what episodes the artworks belong to but I believe my Hubby would know..haha.

  22. Ayie Says:


    yep, you got it first!

    I also think he can tell which of those backgrounds belong to, he loves the saga so much.

    I like the key chain, i collect keychains...that' why!

  23. Ayie Says:


    thanks for the visit! Yes that recipe will be a hit here=)

  24. Ayie Says:

    Icy BC,

    I enjoyed the new episodes more maybe because I'm more flustered with the effects and video edits. I am not much into classic looks that's why! haha!

    expect to see me again sneaking on your posts =)

  25. Ayie Says:


    Empire strikes back was a good episode! One of the first thing we did when i came here was to watch the entire star wars saga =)

  26. Ayie Says:


    thanks also...i saw the avatar! I hardly get the spot there anymore =)

  27. Ayie Says:


    No that's not $25, I got it in Kohl's a dept store here for only $10. I'm not a star wars fan too but I love watching movies as well and getting collectibles.

  28. Ayie Says:


    He's so happy when I made him get it from the closet. He had this big big smile on his face! I wonder how will he react more when he receives the cds! I'm also getting excited for the parcel. =)

  29. Ayie Says:


    thanks! I took long choosing =)

  30. Ayie Says:


    so another star wars fan eh?

  31. Ayie Says:


    Good thing he's a fan but wa not willing to spend big bucks for all those pricey items. Actually buying it online is way cheaper than there during the concert =)

  32. Ayie Says:


    you're not a fan but at least i got a good remark about the shirt from you =)

  33. Ayie Says:


    Indeed a star wars paradisefor all of them!

  34. Ayie Says:


    you can buy it online! just check out some links =)

    don't hesitate to ask if you have further questions about it. you're welcome =)

  35. Ayie Says:


    It was a breakthrough during that time..imagine to be able to make such effects, graphics and costumes!

  36. Ayie Says:


    You like it too? I love how artsy it looks =) Hubs love it so much I don't even care if it's made in China or anywhere else =) lol

  37. Ayie Says:


    he already has a lightsaber! hehehe I saw it in his collection box =P

  38. Ayie Says:


    That shirt was the last of that design and I'm just so glad the size fits my husband! I hope you'll get to have some collectibles for your son too.

  39. Ayie Says:
