The Second Day of Pinoy Otaku Encore 2011

The first day of Pinoy Otaku Encore 2011 was a little laid back compare to what follows. Here now is my report for the second day! Yay! ^_^ I arrived early on November 27, 2011 in SM Megamall. Actually, I rarely go out on Sundays but this day was an exception. I have awaited this for 24 years of my life. And now, the time has finally arrived for my cosplay debut! :D

However, for this journal entry, I’m going to be a con-goer. It was not easy coming up with a report when you are cosplaying. But hey, I managed to bring it on, albeit poorly. So on with the event…

The crowd was a lot more than the first day. The event highlights happened on the second day, that’s why. There were K-pop Dance Contest, Battle of the Bands, and Cosplay Competition in the lineup. Of course, since I was also roaming around Megatrade Hall 3, I wasn’t able to cover all of these up close.

Fangirls and their deafening screams flooded the place when the K-pop Dance Contest started. Different groups danced and lip synched to their favorite idols on stage.

I had fun at the PUP Animerriage Booth! It was the noisiest place to be. A lot of people were enjoying there! I, too, got setup in there. Oh! Unfortunately, I was unable to take pictures! :( Does anyone have some of my pics?

Readers of this blog are familiar that I always dedicate space for cosplayers. They are the heart of the event after all. So far, this event has the most pictures of cosplayers so far! Well, it is obvious that I had more fun than any other event, right? :)

My favorite cosplayer of the day is… me! Hahaha! Nah, just kidding! In every event, I choose a cosplayer who, in my opinion, stands out among the crowd. For this special day, I choose…her who cosplayed Shiori Tsuzuki. Her costume is well made and she is into character very well. 

I will forever remember this event in my life! Thank you to the cosplay community and to the NarutoCosplayers PH for organizing this event. You deserve its success! Till next cosplay! :)

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

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

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
