Toy Con 2015

June has always been the month that geeks look forward to. Why? Toy Con baby! For this year 2015, ToyCon was on June 19, 20, and 21 in SM Megamall Megatrade Halls. I’m so happy to have attended the second day! I have attended Toy Con since 2011 and I must say, the event gets bigger and bigger every year. That means an over-crowded place, too. Sheesh… I was so haggard after attending the event, but it was worth it. :)

The entrance was super cool! And the first thing that I saw inside was the huge life-size toys of Iron Man and Ultron. Just beside it is the DC booth.

The place was full of toys, toys, toys! Big and small… Some are for sale and others are for display. *Drools*

Antman display

A Lego display! (^_^) Love it!

Cool Coke bottles design

Terminator Life-size figure

It wasn't just toys, comics were also on display

Photos, too. I like the Michael Jackson one at the center

Toys for sale at one of the merchant booths

Wolverine! Rawr!

Magneto sits high and mighty!

I particularly like this Hulk figurine, for a whole lotta reasons. Hahaha~

These wall lights are so cool!

Hulkbuster was in the house, too!

Minions for sale! :)

I so love the Minions booth...

Well, aside from the toys, there were happenings at the stage, too. I listened to a forum about toy collecting.

The most memorable moment for me is when I finally had the chance to have my photo taken with Alodia  and Ashley Gosiengfiao at the Cosplay Circle Alodia X Ashley booth. 


Me with Ashley and Alodia! Yay! (photo by Christian Mack)

Then, it was gone after like… a minute or two? It was so fast that I forgot to take a solo shot of Alodia and Ashley. I wasn’t starstruck, no… I already saw them in person a lot of time in various cons. I guess I was really into the moment of realizing a goal. But no worries, arkadymac.com to the rescue…

I guess I would have to talk more about it in a separate post. I got a lot to tell you! (^_^) Oh.. when I came out of the booth, I saw Alodia’s Ball-Jointed-Doll named Circa. She is so adorable.

Cosplayers left messages on the freedom board and there’s one stand-out among them:

Alodia's coscard and signature!

Toy Con is not just for toys! Cosplayers were there, too. Here are a few that I took photos of. I wish I could take pictures of them all.

I enjoyed this year’s Toy Con and I went home with some purchased items. Well, some were freebies from sponsors. My favorites are the Liselle postcards and T-shirt I bought from the artist Lisa Lee.

Considering how popular Toy Con is in the Philippines, we hope that the event will keep growing until it’s prestigious enough to gain the attention of the international scene. I’m excited for next year! The venue will be in SMX Convention Center.  I do hope that it will be large enough to  cater for the ever increasing crowds.

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

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
