Rainbowholic Meet Up 2014 ♥



It all started with this news. 
and I'm like why not ? 

So without a second thought I gave it a try and made my essay. I wrote about my dreams and how I will achieve it. I didn't feel like I'm writing an essay for a contest because my dreams are just overflowing and I felt like I was just writing in my personal journal. But being the shy and negative me, I didn't hope for the best and expected that I won't be able to stand a chance because I thought my entry was boring or lacking. 


but....

I woke up to this. Can you just imagine how happy I felt ? I wasn't able to get a decent sleep because we happened to had our defense that day and final exams were also creeping in so I became so frustrated yet this little piece of paper brought me happiness :) I excitedly told my friends and families even though they're not the kind of people who would understand this kind of things, they're still glad and congratulated me. T^T

There's only a problem: How to get to SM Megamall by myself ? I'm not good at directions and my navigation skills suck ! But then my best friend came in his shining armor and offered himself to walk me up to the terminal T^T huhu thank you bes ~

I got to the mall then asked for directions to get to the Atrium and after minutes of walking I reached my destination. 


I was greeted by none other than my fave blogger herself Kaila together with the new Kawaii PH Blogger Micaela ♥___♥ I was an early bird being the first one to arrive. Meeting her in flesh !! I fangirled a lot ! I can't believe that the girl behind Rainbowholic was right in front of me talking and smiling and looking at me ! I couldn't let this moment pass !! Even though I'm a little shy, I asked for a pictureeee ~

 T^T DREAM COME TRUE! DREAM COME TRUE T^T

and I was lucky enough to get the seat right next to her !!

She's so nice and friendly. I didn't feel that awkward because she gave off a very comfortable aura around her, making me feel like I'm just talking to a distant friend who I got reunited with after years.

Kawaii in Manila 3: Let's Make it Happen




Kawaii in Manila 3 !

Kawaii in Manila 3 !

Kawaii in Manila 3 !



Hear that ? Yes ! Yes ! Kawaii in Manila 3 is in the middle of planning!!! I can't contain my excitement ! This time I'll never let it pass again ! I'M GONNA ATTEND! 


But as you can see, planning and organizing a bigger event is not as easy as it seems, especially in the financial department. The larger the convention, the more costs needed. 


So being a supporter, I'd like to help out by spreading this "call" to my readers :)


Let's hear it from my role model first, Kaila ^___^


"Hello Kawaii PH Girls!
Here's our official logo for #‎KawaiiInManila3‬ #‎KawaiiInAsia‬!
 Everything is still tentative as of the moment, hope everyone can help us out with our future fundraising projects! 

Honestly, this convention would probably cost roughly 1.5M or more (say 2-3M, since we've discussed with the team that we want it as a 2-day convention in World Trade, and not SMX) but I believe that the power / influence of kawaii girls (naksss) and kawaii appreciators (ano ba tawag sa mga kawaii men lol) can shock the whole Philippines. Proven and tested by Kawaii in Manila 2's attendees. (Expected: 500; Actual: 1,500+). Kawaii PH Team / KIM2 Organizing team were first-timers in convention planning but with everybody's help through social media, we MADE noise.

If you are as excited as we are, I would like to ask everyone a favor if you could spread the news by downloading this logo (by Chichi hihi) and tagging @kawaii_ph (with hashtags ‪#‎Kawaii‬ #KawaiiInManila3 #KawaiiInAsia ‪#‎KawaiiPhilippines‬)! The more eyeballs we get, the more support, the more "viral" this "call for attention" gets, sponsors would not think twice this time in helping us fund & actualize this bigger and dream convention. Last year, we sent almost 150+ sponsorship letters to companies, and only a few took a risk with us (maybe they were thinking, "what kawaii?"  ) . This year, we will send probably twice or thrice.. or maybe this time, they will run after Kawaii PH now, hehe! 


To all bloggers out there, you don't have to have hundreds of readers (or followers), your blog / instagram account alone already is a powerful medium to draw attention and raise awareness. Let us know what you envision that will happen in our future 2-day convention. A pathway of sakura trees? A purikura machine? Rental yukata area? Kawaii workshops (polymer clay, watercolor, illustration, etc.)? Kawaii Jeepneys and Tricycles? Kyary Pamyu Pamyu ??? (crazy dream lol but it's free to dream anyway). Do you want TokyoFashion.com to hold their exhibit? Tell the world about Kawaii in Asia!

I cannot promise if 2 days can actually happen with all the costs to be considered, but what I can promise is that me and my team's 10000% effort will be put into this and you will be part of this success. 


Let's make another kawaii miracle happen. Let's make more kawaii ruckus together as a community and a kawaii family here!
Thank you and Amen."


I want to have a pathway of Sakura trees and rent yukata area !! \(*Q*\)
Who's with me ? :)

For more inquiries please visit Kawaii Philippines 

Please spread this and make Kawaii in Manila 3 possible !!
To all the bloggers, otaku, everyone who fancies cute things, or even hipsters (lol) out there who support this movement, let's wish the Kawaii PH Team more success and loveee ~ ♥♥♥ 

SPREAD THE KAWAII ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Kawaii in Manila 3 ! 

LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Kanzhu + Family Gathering





Hello ! It's been a while haha ! I've been so busy with school matters that I wasn't able to spare some time for blogging TTuTT Gomen ne (-A-) Anyway, aside from school, there's another thing that kept my mouth me busy, it's a food. It's always been food. :)))))

This time we tried Kanzhu :D


Yay ! \(^__^)/

We've been eyeing this restaurant for quite some time and finally got to visit it.
Since we're a sucker for bargains, we tried their promo which was a Php99 deals. xD



 This salt and pepper squid was the bomb ! My faveee ~

Eastwood Night Out





The gang wanted to try out the midnight-morning buffet at Somethin's Fishy located at Eastwood so we made plans of visiting there, little did we know, the deadline of the final draft of our Feasibility Study was scheduled on the same day. SeriousLeeeee ? >_< We haven't started doing Financial Study so we're cramming at the very last minute, but with the help of our class geniuses we we're able to finish it TTuTT and still went to Eastwood so late at night ! If it wasn't for the deadline we would be there way more early, but since things got out of hand, we arrived around 12 midnight and Aya wasn't able to tag along anymore. T^T


Call me ignorant, but it's my first time going there and was pretty amazed by the place! Everything looked so luxurious and elegant. Eastwood is a famous place for celebs but sadly, we weren't able to spot any of them. 



Entered the said restaurant we've been aiming for !
Let the photo spam beginsssss !

How My September Went




One of the highlights of my September would be my blog reaching it's 1000th page views ! I still can't believe it ! I've been blogging for like 9 months and I'm so happy that some people really did take their time to read my entries :'') I will continue doing this because I fell in love with blogging !


1st week of September went extremely fine coz' finally...
Me and my bae are together now !




(sorry for being clingy!)

Obviously, it's a Daniel Padilla standee from KFC T^T I've been begging my friend Laida who's working there to give it to me since this standee has been on the stock room for long. But not now baby, you're safe with me ! hahaha ! It all happened one random night, when my phone rang and it was her, asking if I still want to keep that standee. A little hesitant because of my parents reaction but still went out and accepted it! xD My mum just laughed at me as well as my Daddy when they saw it ! They told me I'm crazy ! and there's no way I'm gonna deny it !  Yes I am ! HAHAHA !

So yeaahh, after wiping off some gravies and dusts, I set him up on my wall in front of my bed so I can wake up to his beautiful face lol ! and to make my mornings worth waking up to...


but not really at night, when the lights are off, and I'm trying to sleep.. He's a little creepy >_<

Thank you Laida and Jake for being so considerate and thoughtful ! Don't worry Dj is in good hands now *insert creepy smile*.





  
I finally found my wig cap ! I've been looking for it since.. I forgot when! Out of my excitement I put on my blonde wig. ! I called myself "Blondina" whenever I wear it ! Took a lot of selfiessss of course !


I like to caption this with "Notice me Senpai" hahaha !
 Good thing my sister had a Dolly Wink Blonde Brow Mascara so my wig and brows are matched !
Added my blue polka dots hairband and hurray for my Taylor Swift shirt ! :D #Swiftie

and with that look, I felt so Kawaii for the rest of the night xD


I want to buy more wigs T^T 
If you happen to have one please donate to the cause ! hahaha !


Despite of the stresses that school has been putting on me, I still managed to read some Manga !

First would be Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji

I love it ! Kyouya is more of a tsundere type of guy ! I don't like lying but if I were to make a lie with the same thing, I wish it would end up just like what happened to Erika ! Their fake relationship turned into a real one :) It's a typical shoujo manga but Kyouya's personality gives off a different vibe. 




Another one would be Heroine Shikkaku ! It's a romantic comedy, you could just tell by it's cover! way to go derp Hatori! First time seeing a manga with a funny cover xD Even though, I got disappointed at the ending, I understand that the mangaka wanted it to be as realistic as possible. Hatori still chooses Rita over Hiromitsu. The fact that Hiromitsu changed for her and still went for that childhood crush and douchebag Rita makes me feel so freaking upset. It was a good story tho and I truly recommend it for readers who want some major romcom genre !    



Adding to my stress, was the fact that I wasn't able to attend Kawaii in Manila 2 ! T__T The few chances of meeting Kaila, my fave blogger/inspiration was put into waste :(( I'm actually looking forward on attending such an event but I realized that we have school during Saturdays ! I just can't ditch because we had a quiz. 
I'm a huge fan of her and I truly support the movement of introducing the Kawaii lifestyle here in Philippines. Anyway, I've seen some pictures and articles and positive feedbacks about it and was happy to know that Kawaii in Manila 2 turned out to be a huge success ! :) They only expected about 500 attendees but to the surprised of many, the number of attendees went up to 1,500+! I've read Kaila's and Ms. Anne Kate's speech and I truly salute their motivations and efforts for going this far ! Congratulations to the Kawaii PH Team for a very successful event ! This is a good start for you guys ! Even though I wasn't able to come I gave my utmost support and will continue on doing it ! Hopefully, I can attend Kawaii in Manila 3 and will finally be able to meet my inspiration, Kaila and the rest of the wonderful and powerful Kawaii PH team.



I'm about to end this entry but there's no way I'm gonna miss this chance to rant about the frustrations I've been experiencing about school matters. I've never imagined that making a Feasibility Study could make me feel so depressed and helpless. We've been working on it since last week of September and up until now, we're still unsure about the whole content of it especially the financial department T^T Thank goodness we have some awesome and smart classmates who helped us during our hardest times (Thanks Joyce and Racive! ^__^v) We had our first defense from another subject just this Tuesday and glad that it turned out well ! Now, we have to deal with the second defense ! Please wish us luck :)
