Kang also said that those with unused Pinoy Gaming Festival tickets can enter the event  for free.

We are going to celebrate somebody’s Birthday in Cherry Convention 2013. Guess who? Hint: 9th March

Last January 18, cosplay queen Alodia Gosiengfiao  posted on her Facebook that she and Kang will be having a collaboration soon. It is unknown if it is related to the upcoming Cherry Credit event.
