Festive Teriyaki Boy Matsuri

Teriyaki Boy's 10th anniversary was celebrated with a whole lot of Japanese pop culture. The theme was Matsuri, which means 'festival'. August 14, 2011 was the grand day! There were lots of games, booths, and trivia. Eastwood Central Plaza was the venue and truth be told, it was nice to have a place with lots of green trees and gray cobblestones as the background. As usual, I went to the event to see cosplayers! (^_^) Yay!

Games were held all throughout the event. There were Iku Iku Sushi Making Contest, Maki Eating Contest, Whatta Hair Coloring Contest, Japan Pop Culture Trivia Contest, and many more. Other than that, prizes were also given away in the raffle draw. Unfortunately, yours truly didn't win. :((

My favorite booths were the Coca-Cola Booth which allowed me to play Naruto on Wii. Yay! And of course, I love Photobooths! Baicapture gave them out for free. (^_^)

Before the official cosplay parade started, I took some photos of the cosplayers with the Eastwood Central Plaza background:



















We were also entertained with Japanese Pop and Anime Songs by the Himitsu Heiki Band and PPF All Stars:

Then, finally! The cosplay started on stage. I took these photos as the cosplayers did a short performance on stage. 










My favorite cosplayer of the day is this girl playing Hatsune Miku. Her costume was complete and full of detail. Furthermore, she was able to embody Miku's cute and bubbly personality.  (^_^)




I wasn't able to finish the whole Cosplay line-up as my camera ran out of battery. *Sob* T_T But it's ok. I enjoyed the day and I came home supersaturated with Japanese culture, thanks to Teriyaki Boy. :)) Happy 10th Anniversary!

Nice coverage! Sayang, naubusan ka din ng bat.. dami pa tayong di nakunan na cosplayers dun sa Matsuri hehe.

about dun sa pag arrange into 2 columns, kailangan one at a time i-upload yung pics. after uploading the 1st pic, align left... then place the mouse cursor on the right side of the photo, upload the next image and then align right. and just repeat the steps for the rest of the photos. medyo matrabaho nga lang ha. msg ka lang if you have questions pa abt it :)

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
