I've just received the 1st package from Software Freedom day that came from Netherlands the Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS Desktop Edition Cd's and with some Pamphlet and Ubuntu Stickers last September 17, 2008. Aside the package I've already received my request from Ubuntu, The Ubuntu Shirt which they shipped me four pieces last week.

Since September is fast approaching we are also preparing the event venue and follow up the sponsors for the event. The netbeans and IOSN will be sending me some materials to be use on the event. Luckyly all the materials shipping from me doesn't have any problem, not like Manila holding their packages.
