Angelic Pretty SF 3rd Anniversary

Angelic Pretty SF had their 3rd anniversary party and I thought I would try to attend this year! The party was held at the Palace hotel (which I always wanted to have tea here!) with special guests from Japan including Maki and Asuka. There were so many cute lolitas in their gorgeous coordinate so check out more photos on my Facebook or Livejournal!

Con season

It was con season. Being an anime and manga junkie, I love gatherings like these where different people come together to share the same love. Whether it is music, cosplay, games, toy collecting and so much more!

FanimeCon loves bringing rock acts to MusicFest and I can't complain with that. Rock music are the best live.
With 7!! Pronounced as Seven Oops. Their music has been featured in animes like Naruto Shippuden and Kimi to Boku. Check out their website to get a closer look about the band and their music.
 ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D was the first act of the night and they were amazing! They played songs Bleach, Ao no Exorcist (Blue Exorcist) and Durarara!! They are more of a alternative rock band than 7!! which is more pop rock. ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D will be in the U.S. again for AnimeNEXT.
I got an anime portrait of myself done at Japan Expo. So this is how I look in anime form.

My next con visit is San Diego Comic Con and it will be my first time so I'm really looking forward to it.

Happy Valentine Fooding

This is another one of my fooding adventure entry. The monthly menu for February at Lisa's Tea Treasures was called Fairy Tale Tea! It was just too cute of a concept to pass up. Here is what they offered:
Prince Charming's Passion: romantic blend of Ceylon black tea, pineapple, mango, papaya, kiwi and strawberry
Cinderella's Scone: served with devonshire cream and preserves
Beauty and the Beast: Mushroom Truffle Risotto - a mixed mushroom risotto seasoned with chardonnay, parmesan cheese and white truffle oil in a buttery phyllo dough. Gorgonzola Cranberry Puff-forgonzola cheese, crushed walnuts and cranberries in a pastry shell, accented with a goat cheese rosette and ruby red cranberry.
Princess' Tea Sandwiches: Rapunzel's classic egg salad. Aurora's strawberries and cream cheese. Little Mermaid's lemon cucumber hearts.
Snow White's Love Apple: apple shaped pastry filled with green apple puree, fromage frais cream and speculoos crumbs, covered in a raspberry glaze.

Valentine's Day is here~ I was inspired to make this for Pooky.
He surprised me with a lovely fancy dinner at Le Papillon
Obligated picture with my pretty dessert~ It's a fresh berry corbeille.

{Wedding} Spotlight: Naked Cakes

Naked cakes (or un-iced cakes) are all the rage if you are not a big fan of frosting or fondant.
You can still have the filling of your choice between each layer just minus that clawingly sweet coating. You can dress the cake up by adding a few flowers. These cakes would be perfect for a casual, rustic, vintage, DIY or country theme weddings in my opinion. Although your wedding theme maybe not be any of the ones mentioned, that should not stop you from considering this type of cake for your special day. Even celebrity, Hilary Duff, dipped her knife in a 3-tiered naked cake for her wedding.

What do you think of this untradtional trend?
