Scenes From TOYCON 2013

Its been set and decided, written in blood (imaginary) that daughter and I would attend the Toycon at SM Megamall since attending the launch at the Newport Mall last May. Please see TOYCON Launch post here. 

So today, on Father's Day-- daughter and I went to Megamall sans hubby. Will meet him for dinner in Shang- yey!


Lots of people when we arrive. The Megatrade hall crowd and cool items will turn Divisoria to shame. ;)




Daughter having a chat with one of the TOYCON organizer and comic book artist.


Another artist making popular anime drawings in watercolor!


This is a vintage Starwars toy from the 1980's.



Ayan, sa mga fan ni Superman. ;)



Daughter having a chat with Hatsune Miku, one of her favorite vocaloid character.


Mr. V, the "free hugs" guy that we saw at the Newport Mall. He was sad and forlorn then because nobody wants to accept his hugs. But today, he was mobbed- almost everyone wants to hug him. Yey Mr. V!


Daughter with some of the cos-players. Glad that she's wearing an anime-ish outfit today with a panda hat. At least she blends in well with the cos-players. :)




Cute and cuddly toys. I can spy My Melody, Pluto and Winnie the Pooh. No Hello Kitty??


Daughter taking a photo of that green slimey monster. I can see Yoda at the other end of the table.


Sophia, the youngest cos-player we've met today. She's 4 yrs old. Her mom said she started cos-playing at age 3. Wow! You have have the coolest mom. Lucky kid! :)


French robots! Well, they're made in France.



And the highlight of daughter's TOYCON 2013. Interview and pictorial with Alodia Gosiengfiao. She even got a poster signed by Alodia herself. :D



Daughter will write about her TOYCON 2013 experience but it may have to wait since tomorrow is the beginning of the school week. Will post her write-up asap. :)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Craving For Max's Spicy Chicken

Some like it HOT! fried chicken

Max's Restaurant, the home of the famous "sarap to the bones" fried chicken introduces its newest mouthwatering Max's Spicy Chicken. Its definitely hot and delish as it is enhanced with a special chili pepper seasoning that will make you yearn for more.
