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!

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
