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

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.

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.

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
