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!

[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
