Cosplay Mania 2017

Cosplay Mania was the first cosplay event here in PH that I went to. After Chara Expo and STGCC in SG, I was in a hype of all things anime, cosplay, and other geek stuff. Anyways... I haven't missed Cosplay Mania since 2011. Yep, there was no write up for 2016 but I swear I was there. Hahaha~ Life became so busy for me that all I ever had were a few paragraphs. But now, I told myself that I should at least write some for 2017. Wheee~~

So September 30 and October 1 was Cosplay Mania. I went on Day 2. When I heard from the aftermath of Day 1 that the queue was over the top, I had my doubts of going. However, I told myself that I had to see my friends, too. True enough, the queue took me hours. It was unbelievable! I bought only the silver ticket, enough to see the cosplayers and merch booths inside the halls. 


My feet were already killing me after the queue. And inside the venue was so crowded! The merch booths were jam packed, as well. I do appreciate the cosplayers there who were still willing to pose for the camera despite the crowd. Here they are...

A cosplay event has some toys, too. There were a few displays of Gundams and other cute mecha themed ones.

Aside from the displays, the sponsor booths gave out freebies, too. The Gunpla booth had the Gundam making contest. And of course, there's a big Gundam on sight, too.

Behind this Gundam, are people setting up theirs.
I find the Canon kiosk the best! You can print a photo with their Pikachu plushies. Oooh~ Those are so adorable! Here's a photo of me and my friend holding the Pikachu toys. 

Oh~ So cutie Pikachu!


Overall, it was not the best Cosplay Mania for me but I still enjoyed the event. Cosplay and photography have always brought me happiness. Seeing my friends again made all the difference, too. It's nice to see that more people are interested in the hobby, now. So, I do hope that more improvements will be made in future events. 


My loot. :)

[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
