Toycon 2011, Angry Bird and a Double Date

It was another Saturday at the mall. This time, my boyfriend and I met up with his toy-addict cousin at SM Megamall. A planned double date? I guess so. I met his cousin’s girlfriend for the first time. Kath’s a nice girl like me. Batangueña, too!

But prior to that, me, my boyfriend and Nailo (my DSLR) enjoyed with the eye candies at Megatrade Hall. The event? Toycon 2011! I gave full credit to my boyfriend for bringing Nailo with us. It was already 7PM and there were lots of cosplayers outside the event venue. They were everywhere at the 5th floor of SM Megamall. Such a feast! I took that opportunity to take shots. I’m not a pro so bear with me if I’m relying on the predefined SLR modes.

My favorite cosplayer: Mary Lou Tinonas. I was brave enough to hand her my calling card and pen as I asked for her name and the character she’s cosplaying. I love animes but I’m not an animaniac, so it was my first time to get acquainted with Luka Megurine.

With her facial features, at first I thought she was Alodia Gosengfiao.

While taking photos, I also bumped into my ex-officemates namely Jim and Irman. I wasn’t actually feeling well that day but the surge of excitement made me forget about it.

Finally, the ‘other’ couple showed up from Blenz cafe and we had dinner at The Kebab Factory. Raven’s birthday treat! SWEET!

I’m featuring this fresh lemonade because ordering it was an epic. Epic, fail? No. In fact, I wanted to commend ‘that’ waiter for being customer-oriented. Check out the restaurant review here.

After dinner, the guys planned to check out Toycon 2011 but it was too late. No more tickets, closing time! Sad. I even requested them to take pictures for me! But his cousin managed to buy some goodies after bribing the gate watcher. Kidding.  Anyway, he was there earlier and he got his wrist stamped. (Entrance ticket was P100 and I couldn’t help it but giggle with the freebie – 20% discount @ Eurotel.) Lol.  Okay, time to wear those beanie hats!

Starbucks was jump-packed with coffee lovers and bystanders alike. We headed to Starbucks, Trinoma instead. And it’s where the angry bird got seriously mad! Madly inlove with me, I guess.

I forgot what time we left Trinoma. They still wanted to play at Timezone but it was already closed. RedBox was also nearby but we just decided to go home. All I can say is that, his advance birthday celebration was a blast. Such a lonnggg but fulfilling day. Cake and beers to follow.

    I have two photographer friends who attended TOYCON 2011. They are just a bit disappointed, because, it’s too crowded. It’s easier to get better shots, If there would be no people in the background. Anyway, tnx for sharing! =)

    @ JoMi
    True, it’s better to take photos if the photographer can move freely. :) These shots are actually taken outside the venue. Struggling, that is. Still kinda crowded.

    @ Michi
    Kawaii! We bought it from one of the booths @ the Toycon.
