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 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.

My finished Chouhou Gundam.
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!

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
