Day Two of Otaku Expo 2012

Since December 2011, I have been waiting for Otaku Expo 2012. It was the first cosplay event that I attended for 2012. I chose to go on the second day (January 22, 2012 Sunday) as the individual cosplay competition was scheduled on that day. I wanted to be cosplayer/journalist/photographer on that day. But oh! I guess you can’t serve multiple masters at the same time. It was extremely hard for me because I go to events alone. Hmmm… but that is a story for another day.

For this event, I went as Sakura Haruno from Naruto Shippuden (and no, that is not the only costume that I have. Wehehehe ^_^). Photo courtesy of GENESIS.ph


As much as I wanted to cover the entirety of the event, I was only able to focus on cosplayers. I missed the Gundam Caravan (I WANT ANOTHER GUNDAM!), the toy exhibit, and the programs on stage. (T_T)

So let us go straight to the point. My camera is filled with cosplayers and I am proud of them. They are very inspiring.

as Green Lantern


Yay! I saw another Sakura Haruno cosplayer! :) 

*Drum Roll* And my favorite cosplayer of the day is Serreniethy Fionah as Ezra Scarlet from Fairy Tail. Her costume is very detailed and her facial expression in this photo is very convincing. And admit it! She is cute! (^_^)

Sadly, it was getting late and I missed the cosplay catwalk. (T_T) I missed another opportunity to go up on stage. *sigh* 

Overall, I think this event was a success. Megatrade Hall 2 of SM Megamall was opened to accommodate the growing crowd. Hmmm... I guess otaku culture has taken a niche in the Philippines.

See you at the next con, everyone!

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
