Asia Pop Comic Con 2018 Day 3

Asia Pop Comic Con was a blast! It’s my first pop culture event of 2018. And even if my schedule was crazy, I saw to it that I’d be there no matter what. It’s my first APCC, too! The reviews of past events were great, so I decided to experience this grant event for myself.

I attended day 3, A Sunday because… Well, it’s my only free day. But no worries, I enjoyed the event just the same. 

The APCC tix and badge

SMX was solely for APCC alone! 

The first area I went to is the merchant booths. Ever since I started into bookstagram, I started collecting bookish stuff and fandom merch. There were T-shirts, posters, hoodies, and other trinkets. Since this is a comic con, there were more superhero, anime, and comic stuff. But I spotted some bookish merch, too! 

Gotta get all the FMA merch! 

Gorgeous stuff!

What I like most about APCC is the lineup of guests. Even though I didn’t get to glimpse any of the celebrity headliners like Tye Sheridan and Finn Jones, I was able to see other famed artists. I met comic book artist Jonathan Lau (of Agent 47 comics) and Vera Chimera (cosplayer from Australia). Brian Muir (the sculptor of Darth Vader) was there, too. I visited his booth and greeted him with a nod, and he nodded back. Yay!

There were awesome cosplayers, too!

Toy displays graced the event, as well. But I was too busy in the activities that I only got to take a few photos of them.


Amazon Wonder Woman

Woah! Look at all the details!



Hmmm... you may say the ticket is expensive. But I tell you it’s worth it. The sponsor kiosks were very interactive and fun! You wouldn't mind falling in line even if it's long.The ones that stood out to me is the Netflix booth, which I can say, is where I spent time the most. 






I missed the events on the main stage. But before I went home, I decided to take a peak at the cosplay happenings. They were announcing the winners, already.


The APCC main stage is grand and beautiful!

The event was so great that time was so fast I didn’t notice it. The aisles were spacious enough to accommodate the large crowd. However, a day alone won’t be enough to fully experience it. There were more booths, merchant kiosks, the workshops, the main stage... there was so much happening! I really feel that I got my money’s worth. Yay! Next year, I’ll make sure to go for two days... or even three! Wheee~ 


My APCC haul! Worth every penny!

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

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

Proud to be a Bella

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
