Unforgettable Cosplay Mania 2013

I have left my heart and mind in SMX Convention Center. Last weekend, October 5-6, 2013, Cosplay Mania 2013 Overdrive was held there. And woah! I just had the most overwhelming event in my experience as a cosplayer. It was so intense that, even after three days, the people, the overpowering feelings, and the exciting memories keep playing on my head. 

Guess who's on the screen, everyone. :D
I attended Day 2 -October 6, 2013. On that wonderful day, I debuted my latest cosplay: Xion of Kingdom Hearts. After almost a year of being Rei Ayanami, I can smile in photos again! Yay!

This day was all about one thing: Cosplay. Silly me, of course, it is not called Cosplay Mania for nothing! What I mean is, other events have gaming, manga, or toys in their lineups. Well, those things are still present in Cosplay Mania but the main focus was cosplay! 

Kaname and Reika were back, too! I remember last year, Cosplay Mania 2012, when I didn't get the chance to see them. And the only photo I have of them was their backs facing me. LOL! But now, I finally to got to see them up close. What an unforgettable moment for me when Kaname's eyes met mine. *Fangirl scream* I reached out for a handshake and he stretched out his hand too. But alas! The distance were just not enough for our hands to meet. I will write about this in detail in a separate post. For now, I hope someone out there was able to take a picture of that awesome moment in time. 

I'm still lucky, though. Being first in the barricades, I was able to take snapshots of Jesuke, Kaname, and Reika on the judges's mini stage. Thankfully, they posed for us, too. Yay!

The international guests were awesome! But I didn't forget that the local cosplayers around me were amazing, too! Because of that, I took lots of photos of them. In fact, the whole venue was filled with people that there was not enough space to move around. However, I didn't get irritated with it. Rather, it gave the energetic vibe that made this event a success.

Cosplayer Elle de Luna

My favorite cosplayer of the day is...

...this cosplayer who went as Alphonse Elric. Full Metal Alchemist is my favorite anime and I saw how accurate the armor is. Even the height was what I expected it would be. Lastly, Alphonse's kind and shy personality was successfully delivered by the cosplayer. Kudos! 

What made this event a success? The people who went and the cosplayers who were there! Personally, I'm very happy that my wish came true: for Kaname and Reika to come back to the Philippines! I feel good  that my encounter with them is a lot better than what I had last year, too. And lastly, I got to meet more cosplayers in the local scene. Thanks for giving me coscards, everyone! I just realized that it helps me in finding and tagging you in my photos!

And oh.. what day is it? Three days later, Kaname's eyes and smile are all I see.

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

[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!
