Cosplay Drafting Session 2015

Hello people,

Today, I will be posting a super backlog post which I kept on postponing due to a video for an interview session.

As seen at the title for this post, I will be sharing about the Cosplay Drafting Session #1 which happened on 28th February 2015 at One City. Thanks to Malaysia Cosplay Toshokan again for the media pass. I really did enjoyed the event because we can get closer and interact with the guest cosplayers, which is a very good things for all the fans.

Kisaki Urumi was so cute...

The guests for the Cosplay Drafting Session was Kisaki Urumi from Japan and Monica Wos from Vietnam. 

Photo was taken when Kisaki Urumi look at my camera. 
The timing was so good and I managed to captured the photo when she was pointing at my camera.

And of course the host for the day on the stage was Shaun. You can always see him on stage, hosting for certain stage event for certain Cosplay events.

Photos of Monica Wos:


Photos of Kisaki Urumi:



The photos might not be the best photo for you all because the lightning there was quite dim. SO all my photos were very dark... However, I tried my best to adjust the brightness for the photos. lol.

It was a lucky day for those who cosplayed on that day. Because they were invited up to the stage for a group photo with the cosplayer guests.

Shaun even suggested to take a groupfie together on the stage,

The signing session and fan meet session began shortly after the photo session. Every fans with the merchandises will have the chance to get the signature from both of the guests. Of course they can take photo with the guests too, on the stage.

I think everyone was happy with the fan meet session because they can talk and interact with the guests in such a close distance. 

I was given the chance to interview them personally after the fan meet session. It was great talking to them during the session. They were so expert in this field, I learned a lot from the sharing and stories which I think I should share the interview session with you all too. So, I have my sister on that day to help me record the whole interview session. Of course, there was also a PIC from Malaysia Cosplay Toshokan who took the video for the whole interview session too.

So here's the video from me... the captions will be ready soon in few days. lol. 

And here's the one from Malaysia Cosplay Toshokan...
Part 1


Part 2


Well, hope you all like this event sharing and hope you all will learn something through the video too.

It was really a great event because all the fans can meet and interact with their cosplay idols more closely. I hope this kind of event will be held more in the coming future by bringing in more popular cosplayers. I also wish that I could be part of it in the future and interview more cosplayers from different places.

That's all for the update.

xoxo.

Pimp My Chulip!

Hello Everyone~
How are you all doing?

Today I will be sharing my experience for the 'Pimp My Chulip' workshop which happened on 14th March 2015 at Kare Cafe, 1Utama! It's a very cute and colorful event so I wanna thanks The Butterfly Project and Chulip for the invitation to this workshop.

The main character of this whole event were the four different flavor Chulips! 
  • Pink: Paris, Perfect Memories (Sweet berry scent with Raspberry and Peach flavor) 
  • Green: Nordic, Fancy Nostalgia (Refreshing scent of Orange, Lime and Mango)
  • Red: NY, Brilliant My Way(Fruity scent of Apple, Ginger, Tea Rose)
  • Purple: Arabian, Floral Shower (Elegant flower scent of Rose, Germanium and Clove)
Actually Chulip is very popular in Japan. I saw there's still other flavors available in Japan but in Malaysia we only have 4 flavors.

I think you all will be wondering what is Chulip right?
Well, according to what I heard and read, it's a trendy dome-shaped lip balm by Mentholatum which combines different moisturizing ingredient and it's originally from Japan. The various flavors were provided to suit the style and taste you like and it keeps your lips lovely!

The main thing of this workshop is actually to let us know that we can decorate and make our own Chulip to be unique and stand out. You can decorate with anything or even if you want to re-color or re-draw the whole Chulip container, it's fine! You can think out of the box and be creative.

When I saw this table that full of crafting things, my eyes went blink blink. I 'm actually quite into crafting or DIY recently so I really glad that I could attend this workshop!

I got something that I want and mostly all is purple color! I chose purple because it's my favorite color and I think purple will match the Pink Chulip. The DIY workshop was interesting... Everyone just grab the materials they need and start working on the Chulip. It was my first time did some DIY activities with so many people, because we got 50 butterflies in the house that day!

After all the decorating, drawing and pasting, this was my final look of my Chulip! I decorated it with so many shiny and blink things so it will looks blink blink. Suppose I wanted to draw the eyes bigger so it will looks kawaii a bit but I screwed up at some point and ended up I drew a very fierce eyes for it. lol. Still I think it's pretty!

After the DIY session, we have to wait for the results because the owner with the prettiest Chulip will walk away with prizes. So during the judging time, all the butterflies got to have some food and drinks.

Donuts!!! So many cute and colorful donuts! I remembered I ate 4 donuts on that day because I really need some sweet stuffs after the DIY session and I like donuts too.

Another colorful desserts! MINI CUPCAKES! There were so many of them in different flavors. I wanted to try them all but I just too full to have more of it because there's still some other food waiting for me.


Finally! The time to reveal the winners of the day!There were 6 prizes up for grab! The first three places will walk away with watches and the other three were consolation prizes.

The winners of the day were...





Congratulation to all the winners!
Their Chulips were so pretty and cute!

That concluded the whole event! It was a nice event with nice ideas and nice food. Thanks for inviting me and thanks for the goodies too.

Eat, shop & go on two wheels in Taiwan!
Before that grab the best travel deals at Taiwan Travel Fair

Whether you are considering a first or subsequent visits to Taiwan, there’s never a better time to tour the island than in 2015! Taiwan Tourism Bureau Kuala Lumpur (TTBKL) is organising its first-ever Taiwan Travel Fair in Malaysia. With the theme of “Time to Enjoy Life”, it will be held at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, where the public can get the best deals for Taiwan travel at this one-stop event from 25 to 29 March 2015.

With the first Taiwan Travel Fair, TTBKL hopes to present great value travel deals to Malaysian families. They have tied up with top Taiwanese and Malaysian travel agencies to offer a variety of exciting packages and the most attractive travel deals for all destinations in Taiwan. This also includes customised packages or tours specially-catered for Muslim visitors. 

For visitors of the fair who purchase any tour package from participating agents, they stand a chance to participate in a lucky draw for every RM500 spent.

The Taiwan Travel Fair will be held at the Oval concourse in 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 25 to 29 March 2015. Opens 10 am daily. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/tbrockl !

Based on a survey conducted by Taiwan Tourism in 2012, the top attractions for inbound tourists are sights and sceneries, food and shopping. As such, the Taiwan Travel Fair will also highlight three major experiences under the theme of “Time to Enjoy Life”:

Time to Eat
When it comes to food, Taiwan has it all. Dine like royalty without paying a king’s ransom for it. From juicy seasonal fruits, sumptuous traditional Chinese dishes, healthy vegetarian dishes, icy desserts to creative tea drinks, Taiwanese cuisine makes full use of local ingredients and age-old techniques to surprise and satisfy your palate. Don’t forget the world-famous night markets, filled with the enticing aromas of delicious street food and snacks!

Time to Shop
Taiwan is a shopaholic’s dream come true, with many large shopping centres and chain department stores in all four corners of the island. Shop for anything you want, from high-quality made-in-Taiwan 3C products, to famous highland tea and handmade weavings. For the fashion lover, all kinds of affordable clothing, leather goods and branded products are at your fingertips. In Taiwan, you are sure to find just about everything you want.

Time to go on Two Wheels
These days, the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) trend is gaining popularity as people begin to be more health and eco-conscious. Taiwan is well-known for its LOHAS practices, and there is no better way to experience it than to travel along the breath-taking coastal highways by bicycle! Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and appreciate the simple yet wonderful things in life with your loved ones.

Time to Shop at Taiwan!

Hello people!
Today I'm going to blog and join a contest to win a trip to Taiwan because I really want to revisit Taiwan again! I went to Taiwan 3 years ago and I don't think I explore enough for Taiwan during the previous trip. Always wanna go to Taiwan again but I gave myself to much excuse such as "No Time lah", "No Money lah", "Busy lah" and so on... So I ended up not going to Taiwan yet.

But as for today, I saw The Butterfly Project together with Taiwan Tourism Bureau Kuala Lumpur are having a blogging contest to send one of the butterfly to Taiwan... I was like: "OMG, I am definitely 100% joining this contest!" lol... All of the sudden become extra supportive towards this contest and of course I wanna earn my travel ticket too, an opportunity to travel to Taiwan.

So the above banner was posted at The Butterfly Project Facebook page. Basically there are 3 themes altogether, which are the Time to Eat, Time to Shop and Time for 2 Wheels (LOHAS Lifestyle). If you notice my blog post title, I will be using the Time to Shop theme because I really want to go and shop till drop there in Taiwan.

Why Taiwan?
During my young age, I watched a lot of Taiwan entertainment shows on TV. Therefore, I have my own concept about Taiwan which are... Taiwan has four season and its trends there are pretty much closer to Japan. LOL. As I grew "older", I realized that not only the fashion, beauty trend there were closer to Japan trend, I also noticed that their places, food and cultures there are nice too! During my last visits to Taiwan, I noticed that the people there were kind, polite and helpful. So that's why I wanna revisit Taiwan to explore more.

Why Shop?
Which girl don't like to shop? lol. Well, I'm the kind of girl that likes to shop a lot. Although I didn't buy a lot at a time (because I don't wanna spend all my salary, lol), still I buy the things that I want the most especially shirts, dresses and beauty products. When I saw the photos of my friends went to Taiwan and the things they bought, I was so jealous and I hope I was there in Taiwan together with them and shop. So if you ask me what will I do when I'm at Taiwan, the answer will be shop then eat a lot of nice food.

Which place I wanna visit the most!
1. Xi Men Ding
During my last visit, I stayed at Xi Men Ding. It's a very cheerful place full of tourists and locals. And most importantly it's a shopping paradise! At there, you can easily shop for clothes, dresses, shoes, souvenirs, bags, beauty products and a lot more! I still remembered I bought a lot of cosmetics at SaSa and a hypermarket kind of place at there. If you are hungry, there's a lot of shop to hunt for good food. Even during night time, the place still crowded with people, you can simply spot some street food there while you walking down the street. 

Even during night time, the place still crowded with people, you can simply spot some street food there while you walking down the street. Above picture taken during night time at Xi Men Ding with my sister three years ago.

2. Taipei 101 Mall

Another place to shop! But a bit pricey. For me, Taipei 101 Mall is more towards a tourist attraction. People went there for sightseeing more because you can go up to the top of the mall and look at the beautiful scenery, especially the night scenery. 

Here's an example. lol. 
As you can see the view up here at Taipei 101 Mall is so pretty, especially at night when all the lights were lit up! It's a must visit place there in Taiwan. After the visit, you can shop in the mall for more branded stuffs. lol. I didn't buy lot of stuffs there but there's a lot places around the mall that I visited and mostly were shopping malls. lol. I also visited a large bookstore around that area and I bought a lot of books there because it was way cheaper than the book price in Malaysia.

3. Wufenpu Clothes Market

Didn't get any old photos for this one. I kinda regret during my previous visit to Wufenpu because on the day I visited the place, most of the shops were only available for bulk purchase. Individual purchase was at another day, so I didn't get the chance to buy much from there. Therefore, I definitely wanna visit Wufenpu again in the coming Taiwan trip to shop for nice clothes in cheaper price! I wanna explore more because it's a big place and heaven for a shopaholic like me.

4. Night Markets

I definitely wanna go all the night markets in Taiwan. There are few very famous night markets in Taiwan such as Shilin Night Market, Raohe Night Market, Shida Night Market and so on!

It's a must go place in Taiwan, the Night Markets. Whenever people talked about Taiwan, they will mention about the night markets there. I went to Shilin Night Market before, and you couldn't believe the crowd there and the amount of stalls there which are selling various kind of foods and drinks. At Shilin Night Markets, most of the stalls sell food. However, I heard that Shida Night Market is selling foods and some clothes too, maybe I should visit Shida Night Market on the next Taiwan trip. Shop at night markets in Taiwan is one of the must must night activities that you don't wanna miss out.

There's still more that I want to explore in Taiwan other than only shop and eat. I can say that Taiwan is a nice place to visit, whether you are there for shopping, food, lifestyle or sightseeing, it's a suitable place. Hope that I can gain another opportunity travel ticket to Taiwan again for more explorations and shopping!

If you are interested for a Taiwan trip, here's some link for your references!
P.S: Time for Taiwan TTBKL will be having a Taiwan Travel Fair on the 25-29 March 2015, at Oval zone, One Utama Shopping Centre. Be sure to drop by for more promotions and packages!

That's all from me.
xoxo.

What I'm Doing Recently?

Hi people, it's been long time since my last CNY post and here I am to update a bit on what I'm doing recently and the reason why I seldom blog. (It might get boring for you...lol)


Things have been going up and down recently in my life. A lot of things changed and I faced a lot of challenges for the past few months.

If you followed any of my social media sites, you might knew that I graduated last few months and it was my happiest yet most memorable moment.

However things did not turn out the way I wanted and there was actually a short period which I was so depressed over my life. 

The first job I got after I ended my study was not as good as I thought. As for me, simple is better. I hope for a stable job and income just to live my life. However this job turned out real bad and I almost OT everyday. If you ask me whether I can OT... Yes, I can! But not everyday. The job was so stressful, so exhausted, so lifeless and it made me so depress. Even my parents also pity me for OT everyday. 

Thus, I quit the job and start to search for another job...

Attending job interview was not easy. I have to wake up early, prepare properly and go for the interview. Those days were tiring too, for me. The process of looking for jobs, apply for jobs, attending job interviews without knowing whether I can get the job or  not... It was so depress too. By having a bad experiences from the first job, the after effects were even worst and hopeless. 

But things went better when I finally get a new job. Yet getting use to new environment and people...It was a bit hectic too. Maybe because there were so many other things happened at the same time and I couldn't adjust my mind yet. Luckily, for this job, I'm glad that I met good people and the working environment was good for me. So, this job ended my aimless and jobless period.

As for what I'm doing recently... I did attend few events such as Cosplay drafting Session and Chulip Event. Of course I hope to attend more events in the coming future. Other than that, I also try to make video, as for my recent updated video was... "My Boyfriend Does My Makeup".

Please do support my video!

Since everything starts to turn out better and everything starts to get more stable, I will try to blog more frequently. And of course I will try to make more videos too. lol. At this point, I just hope that my life will get better.

Thank you.
xoxo
