Of course I am talking about “The Best of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10” book, which had its launch last Saturday, January 28th at the activity area of Robinsons Galleria. It became a momentous and epic event for all the Rushers, silent or loud, old and new alike, because of the amount of support it got. It was, to plainly describe it, a HUGE success!

Weeks before the launch, we the Rushers have been preparing for it. We even had our “uniform” on – a black tshirt saying “Waking Up Early. More fun on The Morning Rush.” You can tell we’re that excited for the launch. When we all got to the venue, it was crazy fun! Laughter, non-stop kulitans and the seemingly endless photo ops! It was also great to finally meet some Rushers who we only get to see/interact with on Twitter or Facebook!
Even if most of us weren’t able to get a picture with Chico and Delle, and even if most of us waited for more than 5 hours standing, it didn’t seemed to bother us because all of us had fun! It just goes to show how we love the Dynamic Duo, we’ll be there to support them all the way. And seriously, the company of the Rushers is the best! And most of all, we also enjoyed signing each other’s books, especially when random people approach us to sign their copies. It was such an experience!

And after hours of waiting in line, my not-so-silent Rusher friends Demz and Annarose (@bebephase) were able to get their copy of the book signed by Chico and Delle! I went up stage with them, and introduced them to C&D, and took photos of course. I also had a picture with the Duo and a baby Rusher, but I have yet to get a copy though. I will edit this post once @labanderagloria tag me a copy.
And our group picture!
After around five hours, the number of people started to dwindle, but the energy of the Rushers and Chico and Delle’s as well proved to be otherwise. They both were still eager to talk to us all and even took a picture of us holding a copy of the book!

Again, congratulations to Chico, Delamar and the rest of the Rushers for the success of the book and its launch! Our book is now National Bookstore’s second bestseller. With the unsurmountable and immeasurable support it’s getting, the hopes for book 2 is up! See you at the next book signings, and don’t forget to catch The Morning Rush every morning 6 AM to 10 AM and be Monsterized! 🙂
