Meet Stanley Chi, he's friendly not suplado, for MIBF !

Meet Stanley Chi aka Mr. Suplado! 
Meet Stanley Chi aka Mr. Suplado, the not-so Philippine equivalent of How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson.

Stanley is an observational comedian, artist and graphics master. He is co-host of TV5’s Front Act, creator of Manila Bulletin-based comic strip “Chopsticks,” the author of best-selling book “Suplado Tips 1 & 2.”

A graduate of Fine Arts major in Advertising, Stanley was an art director for the country’s biggest names in advertising but in 2003, decided to pursue his passion for illustrating comic strips.

Many of Stanley’s followers however came from his conception of Suplado Tips. What was considered as a random and impromptu post on Facebook turned out to be so successful that it was considered as his first ever suplado tip. 
He offered more suplado tips and it wasn’t long before people caught on and his FB posts became viral. When Suplado Tips was released, his book gained a cult following.

Suplado Tips spawned the creation of the Suplado Society of the Philippines (SSP) complete with its own suplado oath. “Suplado is the new sexy” is the tagline seen on all SSP logos.
This year, Stanley Chi is among the four Bookworms chosen by the 33rd Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) along with tour guide, performance artist and cultural activist Carlos Celdran; comedian, director and actor Ramon Bautista; and comedian, actor, and radio personality Tado Jimenez. MIBF gathered these unique personalities together in hopes of gathering even more people from all walks of life to attend the book fair happening on September 12-16 at the SMX Convention Center.
MIBF is organized by Primetrade Asia, Inc. in partnership with the Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP), Asian Catholic Communicators, Inc.
