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.

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 head and the limbs.

Yup. Just a bit more...

We start the armor with the helmet.

Putting all the pieces together...
There. That completes the 'building' part. However, the next crucial part is 'detailing'. It is about marking, in black ink, parts of the Gundam to make it more beautiful. It is the details determine the winner.

 Off topic: There was this set of Gundam Markers on exhibit! Wow! Look at those...

Here is the photo of my Gundam which I built and detailed. Honestly, my unsteady hands made it hard for me to make excellent details. So I opted to make simple ones.

I was so thrilled and happy to see my Gundam took its place in the 'stage'...
There were 100 participants who joined the contest.
Unfortunately, it was not yet my time to shine. But when I saw that Gundam Philippines was giving medals to the winner, I felt inspired. A rush of 'ganbarimasu' went through me! Well,  I now have motivation to do better next time. 

Medals for the winners. Here shown is for the first place (Gold).
Congratulations to those who won! I don't have pictures of them. *Sob* I will try my best to have more photos next time! So as a participant, I was able to bring my Chouhou Gundam home. That alone was enough to make me feel a winner!

[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
