The Best of Anime 2011 Coverage

The Best of Anime 2011 was one of the best otaku events I have attended. Part of my admiration for that is the venue, which was located in SMX Convention Center. The place was spacious! Thank God I was able to walk and breathe properly all throughout the day, as opposed to other anime events I have been. Truth is, it was my first time to attend a cosplay event in SMX. I now love that place! This 2-day event was conducted on September 17-18, 2011. I only attended Day One.

One outstanding feature was the various booths. There were educational booths, like The Japan Foundation and stalls from other Graphic Design schools. They were complemented by casual booths of Picstacular (free photo booth- yay!), Animarriage, and Gunpla. The food booth was Sam’s Maid CafĂ©. Of course, merchandisers were also part of this big event. 

The Picstacular Photo Booth and the Gunpla Booth were the only ones that I participated in. Well, I love photobooths and I collect them. As for Gundams, setting them up has become one of my newly discovered hobbies. So I joined another round of Gundam Assembling and Detailing contest in The Best of Anime 2011. We were given a new kit to set up Gundam Kyrios. Read more of my new Gundam here.

Now let’s get to the best part –COSPLAY! We never run out of creativity when it comes to this. The costumes were very well made. I admire most the mecha cosplayers whose costumes were larger than life (see photo of Zoids cosplayer below)! I have observed how tedious it was to put those costumes on. These cosplayers really have the passion to sacrifice comfort just to be inside those armors.

The biggest costume I have seen so far: Zoids mecha. The costumer was so tall and large that the cosplayer didn’t need to go up the stage for a showcase!

Here are my photos of other cosplayers from the event. All of them are artistic, as seen on their costumes.

 My favorite cosplayer of the day is this cute baby girl as Lara Croft. Awww… She was so happy and shy when photographers gathered around her.
  
Wow! This was one big event! It truly deserves its name as The Best of Anime.

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended
