My Scenes from the 7th PCC

Were you present on March 9, 2014, at Robinson's Manila for the second day of the 7th Philippine Cosplay Convention? Were you part of the crowd as a cosplayer, anime enthusiast, or photographer? 

The early crowd of the 7th PCC
Or did you attend  the event as a blogger, like me? And yes, I was in my cosplay outfit, too! And just like last year's PCC, I went as Rei Ayanami again. This year is special because for the first time, Xtian Mack of arkadymac.com and I bring you a double coverage of the event. Xtian was in cosplay, too! He went as an ANBU shinobi.

Me and Xtian
First things first, I was present for the opening number of the event. The second day was launched with a dance performance from AKB48 cover group, Sugar48.

After the opening performance, the crowd slowly swelled with cosplayers. Seeing other people cosplay makes me happy. I went with my friends and we took selfies… hehehe~

Other than selfies, I took photos of cosplayers, as usual. This time around, it is more special because Xtian Mack and I took photos together.  

I took photos of the photographer in action. Look at the stance, man! His dedication to cosplay and photography is something to be admired. Proof? His 5-pound (~2.5 kg) camera. On the scene below, he is working on the feature Shaider and Annie Cosplay by Bri and Kasumi




And the great man took photos of me too. Hehehe~ Yay to cosplayers who take pics!

Aaaaand…. here are my shots:

Reeve as Captain Marvelous from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger









My favorite cosplayer of the day is… Mina Kim as Gothic Annie. While this look is actually an alternate skin for the champion Annie in League of Legends, I do feel that it fits the character very well. It gives the champion a distinct disturbed look, very much like Alice from American McGee's video game Alice. Mina did portray Annie impeccably as well. You can see from her aura, the cute, disturbed, and sometimes frightening Annie. Her costume is well-crafted, too.

It was Xtian introduced me to Mina and encourage me to take photos of her. Of course, there is the #selfie Hehehe~

Xtian takes a photo of me-selfie. (^_^)

I pretty much enjoyed this year’s PCC. It has beaten the 2011 PCC as one of my most epic cosplay events in my life. Special thanks to Xtian for this inviting me to a double coverage.

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

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

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
