Anime Festival Asia 2012 (Singapore)

Here's to wishing I was personally present during this year's Anime Festival Asia in Singapore. I bet most otakus here in our country would like to be there and experience one of the best anime events ever! Thankfully, my friend Soul of  http://armchairgamedeveloper.blogspot.com/ went there on November 10, 2012. It was held at Singapore Expo Halls 7 & 8. Soul gave me these photos to share. If you have time, go visit his blog for game reviews. 

I was very happy and excited when he explained the photos one by one. And I was left imagining the whole place! It was as if I were personally there! Here it is:

First stop is the Kopitiam of Danny Choo. That is the official name of his booth. According to Soul, Kopitiam is a portmanteau of the Malay word Kopi (Coffee) and the Hokkien word Tiam (Shop). So it means coffee shop

Here is the Mirai Itasha! Wow! Now I would like to have a car like that!

Now I am very excited for the Rurouni Kenshin movie that will hit Philippine theaters on December 5, 2012! The movie had an official booth in AFA which showcased the original costumes as worn by the actors.

I told Soul to never forget to take pictures of the cosplayers present! But being on a rush, he was only able to take two photos. But he did manage to take a shot of the popular Gundam cosplayer. I was like "Wow! Is that Clive Lee?"

On stage, there was a cosplay competition, hosted by Danny Choo. Here is Soul's only photo of that event:

Other than these, Soul also took photos of the toys. Actually, he had more photos of the toys compared to booths and cosplayers. ~(-_-)~


Gundams!

Sexy anime girls figures.

Vocaloid nendoroids! Awww....

More cutseyness!

A Miku Nendoroid! I want to take this home! 
Wow! Danny Choo! Cosplayers! Toys! Even if I were not personally present in this grand event, I am so grateful that Soul presented it to me in wonderful photos! The event was a sure success!  Now I have a new wish... to be there in next year's AFA!

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!

[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
