Cosmania 2013

The biggest and most popular cosplay convention in the Philippines is shifting into high gear on its 6th year.

I was lucky and fortunate enough to be part of this cosplay event although I didn’t actually join the competition

but being as one of the guest is already good enough for me.

Yes! It’s Rambutan Season once again. We harvested lots of these babies from our backyard.

Quick facts about Rambutan:

  •  One of the best known fruits of Southeast Asia
  • The fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C
  •  rambutan is derived from the Malay/Indonesian word rambutan, meaning “hairy”[
  • Cultivated elsewhere in the tropics

GUYABANO FRUIT-  well-known naturally fighter against cancer

Since our family loved drinking tea so much, we decided to taste a different kind of tea  from the leaves of GUYABANO FRUIT 🙂

PREPARATION IN MAKING GUYABANO TEA:

  •  Select at least 10 large leaves placed in boiling water set to low fire for 15 to 20 minutes in a pot uncovered.
  • Set aside or refrigerate.
  • To enhance the taste, cold water may be added then mix with calamansi juice and little sugar.
  • Consume within one day in two or three divided doses

Ring Round The Moon

 

I’m a big fan of METTA (Assumption College San Lorenzo, Theater Artist Group) cause they are highly versatile and talented actors.

I was fortunate to watch Ring Round The Moon for the second time around with their new cast of actors 🙂 Yes, they didn’t fail to disappoint me. Their show was amazing as ever.

Here is a few synopsis of the play:

RING ROUND THE MOON is a romantic comedy about young couples who learn to define the meaning of true love. Hugo, a rich young bachelor with an enterprising vibrant mind invites Isabelle, a ballet dancer to a ball. He reveals that he has employed her to enchant his twin brother, Frederic who is madly in love with Diana. Diana, a spoiled heiress is secretly in love with Hugo. However, Isabelle ends up falling in love with Hugo. Who will win whom in the end? Experience an enchanting evening of mistaken love, heartful confessions, and refreshing revelations about true love. Anyone who has ever been in love, or wants to be in love will enjoy

 

Hmmmm…Pretty interesting isn’t it?

 

Yep! It really is…What can I say about METTA?…Their is really a future in Philippine Theater 🙂 Yeah! Kudos to METTA and Assumption College, San Lorenzo 🙂

  • ASTORIA PLAZA- Your one place hotel 🙂 Located in the business district of Manila. In Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Just a few walking distance to Shangri-la Plaza Mall 
  • If you’re not into walking then the hotel gives free shuttle service to the different mall destinations near the area
  • Breakfast buffet was good. I like their service 

 

 

Ritual World

Unbelievable! Never thought I would actually had an equal interaction with the actors of ‪#‎RitualWorld‬. I was just a mere audience trying to watch a good play and then BOOM! I’ve become quiet a bit of an actress myself…..Errr…huh?….I guess your trying to figure out what I meant?
The thing is #RitualWorld is largely an interactive play that draws heavily from native rituals around the world threatened by technology. The actors performed Ritual music and dances charting the rise of human civilization.

A pretty good concept and storyline indeed! Very effective to make the audience understand the reality we are now facing regarding the modern technology world.

So, if the play intrigues you more better check the link here for the schedule dates till September or like their facebook page:
