Otaku Expo 2013 Day 2

The Otaku Expo 2013, which happened first on January 2013, has been continued last weekend (August 17-18, 2013). It was held in SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3. I had the chance to drop by the event and take pictures of cosplayers. 



I didn't cosplay for this event because I am preparing for next week. I was just your ordinary con goer/blogger gracing Otaku Expo 2013. It was so much fun to see the surprised reaction of people who didn't recognize me! So does this make me a master of disguise then? Wheee~~~

I roamed around the venue and found some nice swag! I bought three Assassin's Creed stickers and a Sakura Haruno printed bag tag. I also commissioned the artist Jade Ong to draw for me a chibi version of Rain! It's so cute! I can feel that this is the start of more Rain chibis in the future! LOL! 

My Otaku Expo stuff.
While going around, I also took  pictures of cosplayers who still went despite the threat of wind and rainfall. It is hard to travel whenever it rains, and these people trekked through the storm bringing along costumes and makeup!

Cosplayer Shaoron Tan as Naruto 









Cosplayer Florenz Sumalinog



Cosplayer Raphaelle Veronica Ortega as Ezio of Assassin's Creed


Hunter X Hunter group cosplay









My favorite cosplayer of the day is Jerome Velarde as Hisoka of Hunter X Hunter. Though a villain, Hisoka is my favorite character from the anime series. Jerome portrayed him well! Look at the wig, the costume... everything from head to foot is accurate! Lastly, the pose and the eyes! That is how Hisoka does it!

Lots of cosplayers and con goers attended the event. So I can say that this Otaku Expo is a success. That just proves that nothing can stop otakus from celebrating the craft we all love, not even wind and rain.

[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

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
