Cosplay Mania 2011

I only attended the first day of Cosplay Mania 2011 which was held in SMX Convention Center. Even though the weather was bad, I still decided to go for it. Hey! It was a big cosplay event and I didn't want to miss it! 
The ticket
The whole place was packed when I got there. The event occupied three halls of the convention center. The first hall was used for ticketing, the second was the function hall where booths and merchandisers were (this is the most congested part of the place T_T), and finally, the third hall was used as the main stage for the cosplay event. 


Of course, I again looked for the Gundam Mobile Kits Caravan to have my share of Gundam thrills. I am most happy when I'm setting up these cute mechas. They're like my trophies. This time, we were given Gundam Astray 1/144 scale.
It took me two hours to finish it. After that, I strolled the whole place and took photos of the cosplayers. Here they are:

On a side note, I can't help but share my most loved spot in the event. Tadah! It is this Hello Kitty booth. I love it! I love Hello Kitty!


Back to cosplay... My favorite cosplayer of the day is Jillian Ongsip as a Pokemon trainer. She carried it well with that Pikachu. Pikkkaaaachuuuuuu! :D
Jillian then gave me a cute business card after I took a photo of her. Because of it, I knew her name. :) She looks cute in the card too. :)


International Cosplayers also graced the event. They were the judges for the Project Cosplay Contest:

Jan Pesino Illenberger


Pinky Lu Xun from Indonesia
And yes! My most unforgettable performance of the day! Billy Gaga on stage performing the hits Beat It and Black and White by Michael Jackson. Hey! The lead singer was cosplaying MJ! His voice was even similar to his. As they all said, it was as if MJ came back to life! 



I wasn't able to attend the second day of Cosplay Mania 2011. It would have been fun to watch the final leg of Cosplay Tournament of Champions. But on the positive side, I did watch the Manila leg last time. There were lots of cosplayers too. To read about it, just click here.


Cosplay truly makes people happy. Jillian and other cosplayers are passionate about their craft. SMX Convention Center was filled with grandiose costumes and mechas, each with different themes. Thanks to the organizers of this event, especially to cosplay.ph for bringing this fun-filled experience to cosplayers and con-goers.

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!

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
