My Toycon Haul~! ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

I know it's a bit too late from what I have promised but here is what I got from Toycon 2014!

Here are  the kawaii stuff I got from Toycon 2014.. 

Lets elaborate le stuff... Shall we (─‿‿─)

So I got this One Piece laminated Keychain from Ate Josan, the owner of the shop Sumthin-Sumthin which I use now as a bookmark. They sell cool chokers and other cool accessories.

I bought this cute little alpacasso hair clip from Princess Bubblegum †††. They sell it for only 35php. They also have other designs. They also sell lolita accessories and vintage rings.

This BMO Purse is from Perkee! They have different kawaii purse designs and plushies! You can check out their other items just by clicking their name on my blog :3

I've been wanting to have this Rose Bud Flower Wreath ever since I saw this from their shop last Ozine 2014. I still didn't have money at that time and someone else bought it. I was so sad and I kept on bugging Ate Reggie, the owner of Toxic Kitty fro new stocks and once they had one of this design, I told her to reserve it for me, so now I have my adorable flower crown and  I'm so happy ☜(*▽*)☞

She also gave me this cute gem with bell keychain for free!! So visit and like their page on facebook to see their Gothic Lolita Chokers and other Gothic Lolita Finds :)

And of course, this bawler which Ate Yanna of Perkee gave me, will always remind me how much fun I had this Toycon 2014!! (I always wear this at school.)

I'm still hoping we could attend Otaku Expo on August 9-10. Still need to think about it though :D

≧◠◡◠≦✌ Elyen Adventure at Toycon 2014

3 exciting, tiring, happy and blessed days...

Not so long ago, I started attending Cosplay/Anime Conventions just to cosplay and have fun. But this year, I was there for business. It was a launch for our shop, The Boxshaker Shop!

Yeah, I was there for three days as an exhibitor :3

For the first day, I was supposed to be in J-Rock Fashion but I think I failed and wasn't able to finish my outfit because of all the stress I had in the shop. (LOL)

We had the chance to roam around during Day1 since there aren't much people on the first day of the event. These are some picture of me and my hubby during Day 1 of Toycon 2014.

Me and le hubby taking a picture at the Toycon Photo Banner.

I took a picture with the scary Jigsaw. I will never play a game with him. NEVER!!!

I had to take a picture with the awesome Samurai X. Kenshin is my secret crush :3

Me and my hubby had the chance to try out the Oculus Rift at Hive.Ph. Too bad we weren't able to take a picture while playing since we were both very excited to play and were to scared after playing. It was a really awesome experience that I had to say "thank you" to the staff of Hive.Ph. But I won't be trying it again sooner since it scared the wits out of me.

On the 2nd Day, I decided to be a Gothic Lolita. I think that majority of the attendees were present during Day 2. There were sooooo many people!

I had a picture with BJ. (Ate Yanna's baby) He wasn't looking at the camera though. Nyaaah.

My nyanyan roamed around Megatrade 1, 2, and 3 to advertise Perkee but still managed to cuddle. How sweet <3 

Tony attended Toycon on her Hatsune Miku World is Mine Version along with her dearest boyfriend Vince. I took the chance to have a picture with her since we didn't have a picture last NyanCos Event. And I have to say, She looks really, really cute on her costume! 

It was a very tiring day for us but we were really happy we had many sales that day! :D

I was a sweet Lolita on the third day...

I guess this is my favorite among the other costumes I have worn this Toycon. And I love the blonde hair XD
And the Flower Crown too, which I bought from Toxic Kitty <3 'Will try to post my Toycon Haul tomorrow :)

Duck face :3

Students from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde let us play the games they created. Le boyfriend here is playing the game "Limb and Bones" which was a really cool game. I think everyone who plays it rage quits. Even le bf did. Huehue.

Hours before the end of Toycon 2014, I got to see two GMA Artists and took a picture with them ^_^

And of course, the lovely shop owners who had been with us all throughout the event. <3

Thank you so much for all who attended Toycon 2014. Especially to those who bought from our shop!! Looking forward to see you guys on the next event :D

Free Writing: First Thoughts

Earlier this day, I had the chance to "sit in" on one of the major subjects I am going to take next year which is ENGLISH 19 with the course description: Creative Writing. Oh how I wanted to enroll that this semester, but then I can't. So I just joined in in their class today.

Their topic was about free writing. The students were asked to write for 15 minutes none stop about a topic which came first to their mind. They would only write what they want without bothering with the grammar. I tried writing too and this is what I came up with:

Yesterday, I had experienced, again, one of the most horrible experiences in being an enrolling student--waiting. waiting in a long line for the cashier to pay the tuition fee. The hunger, stress and irritation you feel while you wait in the line is nevertheless rewarding when you already have those class cards in your hand stamped with "enrolled" on it. But waiting for something you aren't really sure of, waiting for someone who only gives you hints and doesn't tell you directly, waiting when you are not sure if it will be rewarding or just wasted time,will it be worth it? Waiting should always be accompanied by patience. Patience and waiting are partners.Waiting could not be succeeded without patience. People say, "If you really love a person, waiting is a piece of cake". being able to wait is one sign of true love. Giving it "all" to the "one" may be something that is appreciated, but waiting for the right time to give that "all" is much more treasured and worthwhile. Have you ever tried waiting for someone? When he told you he'd come back for the promise he gave, you hold on it for so long. You waited, believing in him, until that day came when you realized you had enough? Waiting doesn't always guarantee you'll have what you want. Sometimes, it should be like a "pit stop" as like in a race. You stop, take a rest, take what you need or either you couldn't the race again with life. But then if you really think that the "thing" you are waiting for is worth it and will be rewarding, why not give it a try? At least in the end, you wouldn't be asking yourself the "what ifs". You don't need to rush. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Really, I do not understand what I have written in here. The professor told us to write what was on our minds, you I did. 

Ghaa I want this subject badly. But I can WAIT.

Vacation hangover?

It's the first day of school tomorrow!!

You ask me if I'm ready??

Who cares? I'm not enrolled yet. Huehuehue.
I'll be enrolling tomorrow. Well, I\m sure our classes wouldn't start tomorrow.

I just hope the line for the Cashier is not that long (I wish).
