Gundam Astray 1/144 Scale

As mentioned in my previous post, Cosplay Mania 2011 (which was held on October 1) gave me another opportunity to join the Gundam Model Kits Caravan! Other than cosplay, merchandisers, fancy booths, and fantastic stage performances, I now look forward to an hour or two of Gundam moments. I just love setting up mechas!
This time around, we were given a kit to assemble Gundam Astray. As you all may have known, the first Gundam that I set up was also of the same name. But that was Gundam Astray 1/60 scale. It was a cute chibi Gundam. :) Having another version of Astray would look nice in my growing collection. I was very happy to accept the kit for 1/144 Astray. 
I have noticed that the parts are simpler and easier to assemble than the 1/60 Gundam Astray. That’s a good point, right? :) This time, I made some techniques on detailing. I have decided to assemble the part and put ink on it right away. It was the opposite of what I did to Gundam Kyrios, where I assembled the mecha first before drawing the details on it. I was glad that the staff gave me a better marker this time, though the tip was broken. Thus, it gave out overly large marks.

Here is the process for Gundam Astray:
Part 1: Left Leg

Part 2: Right Leg

Part 3:  Left arm

 Part 4: Right arm

Part 5: Torso

 Part 6:  Legs + Torso

 Part 7: Legs+torso+head

 Part 8: Putting all parts together!
Yay! My new baby is complete! It is the third Gundam of my collection, entry number 47. Unfortunately, I still didn’t win this time. However, I am proud to say that I have better control with detailing now. Indeed, practice brings improvement.

When 6 PM came, I got too busy during the event. It was a fun-filled day after all. Sadly, I came back to the Bandai Gunpla booth too late and I wasn’t able to take photos of the winning Gundams. :( Sorry guys. But don’t worry! I have learned my lesson and will post more about Gundams next time! Oh! If only I can track the caravan’s itinerary! :)

[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

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
