Cosplay Mania 2016

Okay, the date might confuse you. But yeah... I'm writing about Cosplay Mania 2016. When I was writing my blog post for Cosplay Mania 2017, I found out that I had the 2016 one in the drafts with only three paragraphs. Life became so hard for me and coping up was the priority. Eventually, I moved on until I forgot about it. 

So here I am making up for lost time. Yeah... life is still as crazy as ever but I just can't let go of something unfinished. I will share with you the photos and whatever memory I had from last year's event. It was a huge difference from this 2017. Yep, there was a queue, but it won't take you hours. The crowd was bearable to say the least. 

Cosplay Mania 2016 happened on the month of October. It was probably the only cosplay event I went to for that year. Yep, I'm not kidding when I say that life gave me a lot of challenges. It was held at SMX Convention Center. I went there only on Day 2, as my schedule permitted. It was nice to see myself surrounded with colorful costumes and geeky stuff again. Wheee~


I got the gold ticket!

There were activity and merchant booths. The first booths that I went to were the NHK booth where they gave Domo-kun prizes and the Green Tea Kitkat booth for a free photobooth and samples. Freebies galore!

My gold ticket enabled me to access the performance stage. And oh, here are my real time Instagram posts about it. Told you I had a few evidence of my time there. Hahaha~ It was a nice opportunity to be able to take photos of the the guest international cosplayers. Oh~ And my crush Kaname was there! Hihihi~ Here I am getting all kilig again. \(^_^)/

Of course, as usual, I opted to take photos of cosplayers in the event. I recognized a few foreign cosplayers there, like @phildukemaggio and the Wolverine cosplayer (which I also saw last STGCC in Singapore). I took photos of cosplayers inside the halls, as there were still space to move about. However, the lighting outside was better for taking photos... makes my life easier... hehehe...

The event is not complete without toys. I didn't join in making Gundams. I just took photos of the few Gundam toys on display at the Gunpla booth.






Toys, cosplay, and seeing my cosplay idols made up my Cosplay Mania 2016. Yep, you can read between the lines that I had one great time! Got a lot of loot, too... Wheee~~

[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

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
