[Event] Kawaii in Manila 2~!

It has been a few days weeks since I attended Kawaii in Manila 2, and I am still feeling high from all the event photos on Facebook~! Motivates me to get to my own photos xD


Kawaii in Manila 2 is the second kawaii culture event to happen in Philippines! The first was a workshop, which I could not attend T.T So, when this event was announced, I booked myself a trip there xDD

I am very grateful that I made it to Manila in one piece T.T First off, my friend and I nearly got re-directed to Cebu on Friday night OTL. In the end, our flight got delayed by 5 hours and we ended up reaching Manila only at 6am T.T

But hey, a kawaii girl never gives up /o/ Few hours later, I was in Whitespace Manila, redeeming my free ice cream and cotton candy haha~

Corn and cheese flavoured or something LOL
Whitespace Manila, from the outside, looks like a warehouse! But the venue was filled to the brim with kawaii goodness, great food and entertainment!

Really love the little signages that are personalized to every shop~


FRUiTS magazine featuring 

MimiClaire Sweets~!


There were two kawaii workshops held that day, one using polymer clay and one doing lettering~!

 I wanted to try out the uniforms, but I was in Lolita that day, so it was a bit difficult to change out >.< But I finally met Yukie-san and Kitade-san!


Rainbowholic pop up cafe~! Did you get your set of delicious cookie + matcha?

Really cute backdrops are scattered all through the venue~
Even shoes were sold~! Get your starter kawaii outfit only at #kawaiiinmanila2

Kawaii Art Exhibition~!

The event was such an energizing one for me because it was all so positive and colourful! After checking out all the booths, there was still an art exhibit to check out, and the packed stage schedule to watch~!

A set of artworks was selected out of the many many submissions, to interpret what it meant to them, to be kawaii.

I also got to meet my online friend, Charmie, for the first time! She was very kind and friendly, introduced me to all her friends too #omgjinandmiguelforreal #whyistherelaughterwhenmiguelisintroduced #someonereallycutecalledaki #8peopleandIonlyremember4names #iamsosorry

In every goodbye lies the next opportunity to say hello. (: I can't wait for #kawaiiinmanila3 ! Ending with two photos of my lovely friend, Kaila~! Definitely, there are many areas that can be improved, tweaked, and made much more wonderful, but I really really think that this event is very very well done for a first event by you and your team!! とても、嬉しいかったんだ!おめでっと!そして、いつもありがとう!

Kawaii, is not just about being pretty, wearing pretty clothes and putting on pretty makeup. I feel most kawaii when I put in my best to do what I have set out to do. And when you do that, people will feel that from you too~!

Lastly, one #buaypaiseh photo of myself XD I was pleasantly surprised when this photo came out. The power of a kawaii event lolol. I was enjoying the kawaii art exhibition at that time. Many thanks to Shutter Panda Photography for capturing this moment. I will treasure it (:

Please check out Kawaii in Manila and Kawaii PH for more coverage on the event, as well as future new and exciting kawaii projects~!

P.S. Filipinos, I am so envious of you all T.T
