The convention took place from July 23 to 24 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City and was attended by the internet’s biggest gaming personalities. The special guests arrived a few days earlier before the convention, where they had the chance to try authentic Filipino food and delicacies.


After their OfflineTV Japan trip, couple Lily “LilyPichu” Ki and Michael Reeves were the first to arrive here in the Philippines. The Genshin Impact voice actress instantly fell in love with dried mangoes upon their arrival.



Dried mangoes are sun-dried, flat slices of the Philippines’ national fruit usually eaten as a snack. It has different variants like chocolate-coated mangoes and dried green mangoes, which LilyPichu has tried. She also ate a lot of Jollibee spaghetti from the popular Filipino fast food chain.


Kyedae then arrived in the country a day after. She immediately treated herself to a plate of crispy pata (deep-fried pork leg) and a bowl of kare kare (Filipino beef and oxtail stew).
