My Gundam Kyrios

It was on Otaku Expo 2011 that I successfully completed my first Gundam, officially named as Gundam Astray. That feat led me to discover that I have a passion in assembling mechas. So when I saw another Gundam Model Kits Caravan last Best of Anime 2011, I happily joined the queue for another round of assembling and detailing.

The Gundam Model Kits Caravan:

We were tasked to setup Gundam Kyrios. It was a big difference to me because my first Gundam was a chibi version. This time, Gundam Kyrios is a full Gundam with less detailed parts. Its colors were only limited to white and orange, plus a little bit of black on placed on its back. I thought that assembling it would be harder compared to Astray.

But I was wrong. Kyrios was easier. It had lesser parts and thus, had only 7 steps. But the hardest was the first step: the Head! Ugh! It was so tiny that assembling the parts and putting in the stickers took a lot of my time. I realized it was difficult to work on smaller parts.  

Part One: The Head

Part two: Torso+head

Part three: left arm
  
Part four: right arm


Part five: right leg


Part six: left leg

Part seven: Putting it all together

Is assembling a Gundam hard? Hmmm…. Gundam Kyrios showed me the most difficult part, and it is not even one of the eight seven steps listed above. It is a task that seemed all too easy: DETAILING. Argh! I had to put an effort on getting my hands to be steady. I had to be particular of the black outlines of the Gundam. I guess that’s why they called it Gundam Assembling AND Detailing Contest. Sigh! What made it worse was that the Gundam Marker was running out of ink, so it didn’t have the expected result. Well, better luck next time, I guess.

Congratulations to the winners!

I can’t wait till the next caravan! I hope I can run into it again in future events. I will keep on joining until I win first prize!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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
