[Feature] Kawaii in Manila 2~!

Now that I am finally done posting about my past Taiwan trip, now I can focus on what the future holds~!

Kawaii in Manila 2 is a convention hosted by the lovely team behind Kawaii Philippines, with the aim of spreading kawaii culture from Japan to Philippines and to the rest of the world! #kawaiimovement

Kawaii isn’t just an expression nor a trend, it is a lifestyle – an appreciation for all things cute and also a way of looking at the world in a positive light.

So what's in store?

 1) Kawaii Workshops!

Ever wanted to make your own accessories? Or write with style? Kawaii in Manila 2 will hold two workshops during the event!

One is an accessory-making workshop using polymer clay by Provenance 1800 Designs and Crafts, and another is a lettering workshop! I am *really* interested in the latter!

2) Fashion Runway + Kawaii Girl + Ikemen Guy Contest! 

Headed by Candy Kawaii Lover, there will be a Harajuku Fashion runway featuring how YOU can also be a kawaii girl/ikemen guy! And just for Filipinos, you get a chance to be a Kawaii.PH ambassador if you win the Kawaii Girl or Ikemen Guy contest!

Just recently, a model search was held! Are you one of the lucky ones?!

3) Kawaii Art exhibition~!

Get to see your favourite artists showcase what kawaii means to them, and how it has changed their lives! I am really looking forward to this exhibit, because I can't draw for nuts x)

My banner was drawn by Chichi Romero aka Little Miss Paintbrush, and she's one of the featured artists here! Yippee!

I've admired Jin's work (both cosplay and non-cosplay) for a long time now, so I am really excited to her her artwork~!

4) Kawaii-related booths! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ

Need a boost of kawaii items? Want to be inspired by like-minded people? Many booths will be set up for you to replenish (or overload) your room and self with kawaii goodies~! Here are my top five booths that I definitely want to visit:

-- Hodge Podge: I think the accessories are really really cute, and a simple and subtle way to add some kawaii-ness to an everyday/work look~!

-- Keybie Cafe: Such cuteness~!!! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))) I can't wait to buy a few home!

-- Whimsicute: The hairbands are especially pretty! Would love to get my hands on one of them! Or the bows (★^O^★)

-- Spring Marionette: Quirky and pretty accessories~! I think some are pretty suited for mori style, which is a style I quite like at the moment~!

-- Perry in Disguise: I'm a fan of hoodies! I hope they sell them at Kawaii in Manila ヽ( ★ω★)ノ

... Aaaand lots more~!

And not to worry, there are also food booths such as Izumi Curry (incidentally, known as the best curry place in Manila), so you won't have to even leave the venue to grab food XD

5) Rainbowholic Cafe~! ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

Now THIS is what I am most looking forward to (Singaporeans love food LOLOL). Kaila aka Rainbowholic aka I-can-dream-so-I-can-do aka inspirational-kawaii-friend will be having a pop-up booth of her dream cafe! Her cafe hopes to channel kawaii vibes to everyone, and provide a venue for creative work while chillax-ing~!

Are you excited too? It's not too late to book a flight ticket xD I will be attending this event, and I hope to come back with an awesome kawaii experience with new and old friends, lots of amazing photos and lots of kawaii goodies and no money xD
