This past weekend, I attended one of the biggest anime conventions in my area. Though there were problems for many, which included stuff like incorrect information given (or updated info not given), confusing maps to where people couldn’t find panels, lack of volunteers to guide people on where to go, etc., I think the space (at GRB) where the location was at was pretty spacious compared to previous years where everything was so compact & tight. Nonetheless, I did enjoy my time at the con, meeting up with friends and enjoying the artist alley & dealers room. I even purchased a few items, and got to meet Vampybitme.
On Saturday, I cosplayed Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler), and on Sunday, I was only there for a few hours, but I cosplayed Tifa Lockhart from FFVII Advent Children. This was my first time crossplaying, and to my surprise, my Ciel cosplay got quite a bit of attention, esp. from girls & mothers. Haha. 😛 I will provide a selfie of both of my cosplay costumes. If anyone sees or has pics of my cosplay, please feel free to share them with me or tag me. I provided my Twitter & Instagram names on the pic, and will post my FB page below.
I recently came across these “Texas-size Baked Potatoes,” so I decided to blog about this awesome baked potato I made/ate after work last night. Baked potato is actually not too difficult, but honestly, I didn’t bake mine. I actually steamed it… sorta.
First, I washed my potato and then I poked some holes with my silver fork and let it sit in water for 5-10 minutes so that my potato would be moist. Then I placed the potato in a ceramic plate that curves upward slightly like a bowl and added a bit of water in the plate, put the potato on the plate & put saran wrapped the plate & put it in the microwave for 5 minutes. After that, I took the potato out to check if a chopstick or fork could be pressed into the potato (This will tell me if the potato is soft enough or not). If not, put it back in the microwave & add 2-3 more minutes until it’s cooked right.
When the potato is cooked, cut the potato open and insert your toppings of your choice for your baked potato. You can add green onions, bacon bits, cheese, sour cream, butter, … pretty much whatever you want, and that’s it! I added green onions, mozzarella cheese, and bacon bits in mine since that was what I had at the house.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed my version of an easy baked potato. Haha. I just thought these potatoes were huge & thought I’d share it with everyone. Pretty crazy big, right? 🙂
Take care, everyone!

I know I usually post DIY stuff, but I thought I’d share some skin care/beauty stuff every once in awhile since I don’t blog about it on my other blog anymore. Haha. 😛
My usual “Go To” face mask is a Taiwan brand called My Beauty Diary, but I had gotten this Korean brand face mask by Foodaholic as a sample when I purchased a Korean bb cream, so I decided to do a review on it.
For skin soothing & supplying moisture
Optimum skin condition is maintained by bamboo extract to make elastic & moisturizing
3D shape natural pulp shape (v-shape bottom)
This mask is very interesting because compared to Taiwan’s My Beauty Diary mask(s), this mask is 3D shaped. The middle is lined up as if it was clasped together. The bottom has a v-shape to fit your chin, which MBD does not. I feel that this mask is more thick than MBD, but both have a light fresh scent to it. Moisture wise, I think it did an ok job. The mask dries up more quicker than the My Beauty Diary one, but I feel like there’s essence in the My Beauty Diary one than Foodaholic one. If I would rate this mask on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, I’d give it a 6. I would still highly recommend My Beauty Diary face masks. 🙂
