The Epic 5th PCC

The 5th Philippine Cosplay Convention was held in Robinson's Midtown Atrium. It was a grand event for otakus everywhere. Most of all, it was a free event! Furthermore, the booths had freebies! Hmmm..... and free is good! :P

The said event was held on March 3, 2012. I am not sure if this was a two-day event. But anyhow, I only attended day one.

I arrived early and the first thing that I saw was the Gundam Caravan! Wheee~ My first freebie of the day! This time, Gundam Philippines offered the blue version of Gundam Astray. (read more).

Free photo prints were also given out by Eurotel. Sadly, they weren't able to spot me. *cries* Here is the print, on it is my friend Lot.

High Sierra Philippines also had a free photo booth for everyone! Sadly, I didn't get the chance to have one as well. But ah! Here are my friends on the photo. :)

Photos of the contestants from Cosplay Costume of the Year were on display. The winners were announced later on in the event.

Of course! Toys are a staple in otaku events! What is amazing in PCC was that the toys on display were made of paper:
Chibi Hatsune Miku

Pikachu! *Pika*

Snow Miku

What I like about this event, as a cosplayer, is the dressing room. It gave me the opportunity to interact more with fellow cosplayers. I saw again those who I know from previous events and I also made new friends. Being a newbie, this was a special case for me. I didn't know that kulitan exists between cosplayers. 

So, I went as Sakura Haruno of Naruto Shippuden. Again~~ Hey, I love Sakura.

While in cosplay, I also took shots of others. I love it when cosplayers look into my camera for a pose. It's easier to take photos this time around as I know some of them by name, or by face. 
as  Black Rock Shooter and White Rock Shooter

as Hanamichi Sakuragi and Kaede Rukawa

as Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight

as Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura

Cosplayer JL as Songstress Yuna

as Asuka Langley from Evangelion

Cyu Rinji as Amane Misa from Death Note

Loki Heart and friends cosplaying characters from Tora Dora

Cosplayer Shun Rakanis as a Grey Knight from Warhammer
My favorite cosplayer of the day is Serreniethy Fionah as Ezra Scarlet in Heaven's Wheel Armor from Fairy Tail. Her costume is well crafted and very detailed. My favorite part are the wings. It draws attention to her. She also projects the warrior personality that is Ezra. 

That sums up my otaku experience in PCC. The booths, cosplay, and most of all the FREEBIES made it all the more worth it. I'm so happy that I fulfilled three tasks for this. Me being a con-goer, cosplayer, and blogger. 

Watch out for my blog entry regarding my experience as a cosplayer in this event. :)

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
