The Rurouni Kenshin Fun Booth at Glorietta

I first saw the Rurouni Kenshin Costume Exhibit booth at Toy Con 2014. I was very excited and couldn't wait to write about it when I got home. But alas! Due to time constraints, the planned draft didn't even get a head start. But the Rurouni Kenshin hype is still on and when I visited the Glorietta Cinema lobby to check out movie schedules, I found the booth there. I said to myself, "Yes! I have been given another chance to write about it!"

I felt the same excitement and the same OMG feels as when I saw the costumes for the first time. I couldn't believe that the actors fit into those costumes. It seemed too small for real. Hehehe

There was also photo walls which showed stills from the movie. 



What made this visit even more special for me is the participation of Shinkendo Philippines. Sir Julius invited me for a photo op of the students and the booth. Of course, I happily agreed. I love taking photos. Hehehe




Sir Julius was the one who showed me the booth. (^_^)

And here comes the best part, I saw autographed stuff from actors Takeru Satoh and Munetaka Aoki, and from Rurouni Kenshin director Keishi Otomo. (^_^) I may have missed them in the Red Carpet Premiere but this is as close as I can get. Yay!

Le good stuff! (^_^)

Of course, there is the autograph of the lead actor, Takeru Satoh

Sir Julius gave me information about Shinkendo Philippines and showed me the signed bamboo sword, books, and photos of their Master from Japan, who is a real samurai! Woah! Out of amazement, the only reply I said was, "May samurai pa pala ngayon?" (There are still samurai in these times?") Hehehehe~ I guess I believed the movie The Last Samurai a bit too much. Hehehe

If you're interested in learning swordsmanship, you can contact Shinkendo Philippines on Facebook. Luckily, I took a photo of their flyer. (^_^) Or you can visit their fun booth in Glorietta, up until August 25 only. 



Now, that's what I call a very amusing and educational experience in a fun booth! Have you watched Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, yet? Cinemas are almost full when I checked it out. Hmmm... It would be better if you reserve your seat online. 



This movie is worth is absolutely worth it! I'm very happy that it gets the full attention it deserves now. The first Rurouni Kenshin was very excellent that I gave it a 5-star rating on my reviews. Of course, Kyoto Inferno is just as good! (^_^)

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
