[Review] Chocolate Heart Cookie from Tous Les Jours

Best Blogger Tips
Who here loves chocolate? Yay! I'm so excited to write about my favorite food: chocolate! In my recent visit to my favorite bakeshop Tous Les Jours, a really cute heart shaped cookie caught my eye! I didn't have second thoughts on getting it! If it's from Tous Les Jours, then I will love it!


Chocolate Heart Cookie from Tous Les Jours
It is as big as my palm and it is kinda heavy, too. So I know that this one is packed! Here are the ingredients of the Chocolate Heart Cookie:


The ingredients.
A chocolate filling is sandwiched between chocolate cookies and everything is coated with chocolate! Oh! Am I overusing the word 'chocolate' now? LOL! The cookies are soft, with a mild kick to it due to the dark chocolate. The creamy milk chocolatey flavor comes from the filling and coating. 


The interior of the cookie. :) 
Being a sweet tooth, I felt that the level of sweetness is just right. Eating this made me glad! It is so effective in bringing out those happy hormones! 

Chocolate Heart Cookie costs PhP58.00. Hmmm... a bit expensive but if you're a chocolate lover like me, you will love this. Definitely. 


Heart full of chocolate! :)

And oh! Here is another reason why I like Tous Les Jours... Teehee~

[Review] Mango Yakult Tea from Bon Appetea

Best Blogger Tips
I took a break from my usual milk tea because it's summer! The season makes me crave for fruity drinks and food! Whenever I go to Bon Appetea, I always order Nirvana. But this time, I ordered Mango Yakult. Mango for the summer season and Yakult... because I love that drink! 



This fruity concoction is yellow in color with tapioca pearls sinking at the bottom. My first sip was refreshing with a burst of mango and with a hint of that particular Yakult taste. However, being thick and sweet, mango overpowers everything here. I expected this to be a smoothie or shake type but it was made of mango puree, instead. So overall, it was a juice-Yakult drink. 

I am not sure if there is any tea added here. The tea flavor was not apparent. The tapioca pearls don't complement the drink at all, but having them there is not bad either. Upon standing, the drink separates and forms layers so I had to constantly stir it. 

Overall, I like this drink! It beats out the summer heat and the fruitiness is refreshing! I am a fan of Yakult (http://www.yakultusa.com/), too! So I give this one a five star rating! Now, I want to try other Yakult tea drinks from Bon Appetea! Ah~~ I'll wait till next weekend.

Oh No Manga Cosplay Camp 2

Best Blogger Tips
One anime event that I love is Oh No Manga. I was present for the first one last year and I gotta commend the organizers for putting up a really good event! Everything was in order and I appreciate how the numbers of the cosplayers were printed and laminated. It felt so good wearing that number on stage. :) 

This year's event went a notch higher. The theme was Oh No Manga Cosplay Camp 2: The Coin and Flour Saga and was held on July 7, 2013 at SMX Convention Center Hall 1. There was better venue, stage, and more freebies for participants to enjoy! Yay! 
Gorgeous stage! 
Just like last year's Oh No Manga Cosplay Camp, a huge Gundam was also on display. But now, Tokyo Tower was included! 
The Gundam Display

and the awesome Tokyo Tower display.
What I love about this event are the free professional photo booths! Here is my friend Reeve and his photo taken by the excellent pros of Kiaroscuro House of Art and Photography:



And my photo taken by the great photographers from the Cosplay Network Philippines photo booth: 



Cosplayer and Animax Ani-Mate Rhianna was a guest of the Animax booth. I was very happy to have a photo with her. :) 


Me and Rhianna. :) 
Aside from booths, there were also grand freebies! I mean really grand! Cosplay registrants were given free pair of Geolica Contact Lenses! I will surely use mine. I have never worn contact lenses before but with this, I guess it's time to finally try! I am secure with this because it is BFAD approved! 



This event is special to me. I decided to take my Rei Ayanami cosplay on stage for the first time. This was also my first cosplay catwalk for 2013. :) Here is an incredible shot by Kiaroscuro House of Art and Photography:

Gorgeous cosplayers, weren't they? This is probably the first event that I enjoyed as an event itself. I love everything in it, especially the swag:
