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 :)

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
