Rilek-lah Like Rilakkuma with Canon EOS M10

They say the cartoon character you like more or less reflects what type of person you are. If you like Hello Kitty, you're the girlish/princessy type, if you like Dragon Ball character, you're the courageous/justice type etc... As for me, I found my soul mate few years back, I can never find one cartoon character that has so much connection with me and when Rilakkuma character landed in Malaysia, I'm hooked on it! (I'm eating Rilakkuma Pretzel while typing this post lololol)

Rilakkuma which literally means Relax (Rilak) and Bear (Kuma), is a character by San-X and first appeared in year 2003 on a comic book called Rilakkuma Seikatsu (Life of Rilakkuma). It quickly become a big hit because of it's relaxing, lazing around cuteness and has become a big hit since then. And now, I can't believe that I'm invited to Butterfly Project x Canon's Around The World with Rilakkuma & Canon event, and of course I can't wait to have a look at the Canon EOS M10 x Rilakkuma Collaboration set.

The event hosted at WhupWhup cafe on a sunny Saturday

Look who I brought to the event with me although the invitation clearly stated no plus one (shhhh~)

The event's dress code is Travel and it took me quite some time to figure out what I'm gonna wear that day because my travel style are usually comfy and casual. Lucky me I bought a Rilakkuma raincoat during my last Bangkok trip and I was like, rainy days is a part of travel weather too sometimes so why not?

and I end up looking like a huge Rilakkuma bear hahahahaha
Here are the S, M, L and XXL size Rilakkuma lol

Never once I step into an event venue with big wide smile like that day. Seeing all the Rilakkuma plushies sitting around the chairs, colourful balloons everywhere, I'm literally in Rilakkuma wonderland. Canon has decided to take travel and adventure to another level by jumping into Nui-Dori's bandwagon.  Nui-Dori means Toy-Travel is a recent hype where you bring your toy to travel with you and include the toy in travel pic. And with the collaboration with Rilakkuma, Canon's Special Edition EOS M10 Box set comes with a limited edition 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy and is officially Canon's next travelling companion.

In conjunction with this blogger event, a special guest was invited to the venue, needless I say....

It is Rilakkuma in the house
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG *hyperventilating*

I almost cried when I saw it walking out from backstage. I never thought I would be able to see life-size Rilakkuma walking around, waving, doing some silly dancing moves in my life. At least not when I'm at Malaysia and not Japan. I try so hard to calm down and not to cry, it is one of the precious, touching moment in my life and I gotta thank Canon Malaysia for this! 

Let's practice Nui-Dori on the spot shall we?

Rilakkuma and his Canon EOS M10 at a cafe while sipping coconut juice.

Actually that coconut juice is mine hahahaha

Another highlight moment of the event were the lucky draw and best dress contest. Too bad I didn't get to win in lucky draw which the grand prize is the Limited Edition Rilakkuma x Canon EOS M10 bundled kit, but still I won a prize in the best dress contest and got myself a big Rilakkuma plushie! 

Among other bloggers who are in the run of best dress
(Thanks Jean for the photo)

Last but not least, a big group photo with all the bloggers who attended the event on that day

The EOS M10 is the latest addition to canon's EOS M ranged of high performance mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. It is the most compact and lightweight in the series, this camera is the camera you want to bring to travel and experience the adventures in life without missing any beautiful moment capturing opportunity.

Comes in white and black colour
I still like the white more, looks so sleek and chic

Here are more features of the Canon EOS M10:
  • 18.0MP APS-C CMOS Sensor 
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p video at 30/24fps
  • Built in WiFi connectivity NFC
  • Hybrid CMOS AF II, 49 point system
  • Up to 4.6fps and expandable ISO 25600
  • Creative Assist and Self Potrait mode

Canon EOS M10 are designed for perfect selfies too because the portrait mode features a on-touch beautification shortcut which offers skin smoothing effect. Seamless sharing on social media platforms and optional colorful jackets to dress up your camera, I want one of this camera like right now! (All the features doesn't really matter to me because I want everything that has something to do with Rilakkuma lololol)

Small but powerful!
Can we go travel around the world together someday?

Last but not least, I'm glad that I was at the event with these two:

What's more happier than having everything you love in one picture?

I guess my perfect travel idea will be: 
sun + sea + chilled watermelon + starry nights + summer dresses + good friends + Rilakkuma + wifi + Canon EOS M10... the list goes on and on lol...

Now you can take part in Canon's #ToyTravel photo challenge and for 3 months consecutively with 3 3 different themes, 3 winners from each theme will be chosen and they will walk away with Canon EOS M10 kit (EF-M14-45mm) along with 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy.

Boxes Cafe @ BBCC, Bukit Bintang City Centre, KL

Last Wednesday was a public holiday, what's more fun than date your girlfriends and head out for a "All Girls" date? We went to hair salon, get our hair fixed, some getting their manicure done, gossip while we're doing things we like, it was fun! 

Evening sky looked totally amazing that day, a beautiful blend of all pastel colours while we reached Boxes Cafe @ BBCC.

Located at former Pudu Jail site, Bukit Bintang City Centre is the latest addition of KL and the Boxes Cafe has became a popular place to go since April. The cafe is built inside containers, it's allude to Bangkok's Art Box night market place. The light bulbs decoration, greens, colourful containers with pretty themed interiors, I would love to hang out at this place over and over again.

In conjunction with the UEFA Euro 2016, Bukit Bintang City Centre is having a EWRO Fest till the 3rd of July, hence the menu of Boxes Cafe are named after European cities/football players during this football season. (I wonder why they don't have Casillas or Torres's name on the menu lolololol)  

EWRO Fest Pop-Up Menu

And here are the food and drinks we ordered that day:

Ang Mo "Kat Chai", RM8.90
Super duper sour, good for open up your appetite tho.

Lemongrass Sours, RM11.90
Not a fan of lemongrass drink but this icy cold lemongrass mixed soda beverage has took the taste to another level

Milo Dinosaur, RM7.90
Milo and choco pops, need I say more?

Barcelona, RM18.90
Beef meatballs in beef broth stew paired with garlic bread
It's been some time since I last had beef stew-ish like food and I love this! Although the broth aren't as thick as traditional stew, but it is quite tasteful and satisfying.

Granada, RM16.90
When I had my first bite of this, I can't stop frowning because it tastes weird. The chicken cutlets consists the taste of fish, as if they were both stored together in the freezer that combines both taste. Tomato sauce taste bland, this dish doesn't leave much good impression in me. 

Madrid, RM9.90
Freshly fried onion rings with mayonnaise, it was pretty decent.

Bon Appetit!

After we done our meal, we move from one container to another because it is more comfortable sitting at the sofa areas so that we could chill and talk. We talk basically about everything and by looking at the surroundings of Boxes Cafe, it suddenly struck us that if we're old and single we should totally buy container boxes like the cafe and place it at some friend's unused property, then furnished it nicely and live in it. We'll be like queens with our own rooms but still linked with each other that kind of interior structure. Hahahahaha.

Oh well, I really don't feel it's going to come true seeing that both of them are attached, probably getting married soon? Lololololol. I'm just gonna grow old and die in one of the container and just rot then. Haha. Enough of the girls talk, here are some silly photos we took that day. What's more fun than having these silly photos as one of your memories to remember friendship by?

But then I think again, do I really wanna live with these two crazy Virgos? No. Hahahahahaha.

LINE Disney Tsum Tsum: Cinderella Event

"Have courage and be kind", "a dream is a wish your heart makes", "no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true", these are all the fine quotes of Cinderella both movies and animation taught me since I was little, and I still find myself humming songs from the cartoon now and then. 

Cinderella is one of the animation that influenced me since my childhood that being kind is the true way in dealing with every single matter in the world. Words cannot describe how elated I was watching the Cinderella movie last year and now, LINE Disney Tsum Tsum Japan has released a Cinderella event for players to relive the magical world of Cinderella again.

While LINE Disney Tsum Tsum US is having Star Wars event (which I've already done playing 2000 years ago Mwa-Ha-Ha) I've just completed the Cinderella event. Here's the simple walkthrough of this event:

Cinderella Event: Collect the magic in bottle and dress-up Cinderella

While accepting the challenge, each game you play there will be bottles filled with magic points drop in the Tsums and you need to break the bottle and collect magic points by using bombs or skills of your Tsum.

And if you're lucky, the magic bottle that broke will sometimes contained a Magical Party Time invitation which entitled you for a 12 seconds pure magic bottle breaking session.

There are 20 Cards throughout this event, upon completion there will be a Cinderella pin as reward!

Of course, clearing each and every card give you some rewards, such as hearts, coins, and bonus items.
Oh did I mentioned that Prince Charming Tsum is one of the reward too?

And here's how the game playing session looks like. I'm using Princess Leia as my Tsum ever since I got her as she is one of the Tsum that combines bombing skill as well as coin collecting efficiency in one Tsum, which is the qualities that I needed to complete the challenge.

Using Cinderella and Fairy Godmother will earn you extra magical point bonus but sadly I haven't attain either of them Tsum in my collection boo-hoo.

And as aforementioned, some magic bottles contained invitation to a Magical Party Time which allows you to break as many magic bottles as you could in 12 seconds to collect magical points to complete all the 20 cards. Too bad points aren't allowed to bring forward for the next card.

When clearing my card number 2

Clearing each and every card will help dress-up Cinderella in one of the 3 cards

Three version of Cinderella: Cinderella in the Pink dress that she made for herself to attend the royal ball, Cinderella in the magical blue dress which her Fairy Godmother granted her wish and last but not least, Cinderella in her wedding dress.

By completing one of the card, the reward is Prince Charming Tsum. By using his skill, you can see both him and Cinderella waltz down the screen and clear Tsums from their dance path.

At last, the completion of Cinderella event entitled an exclusive Cinderella pin for name decorating purpose. 

I've used up around 120-150 hearts to complete this event and these are some of the statistics of the my gaming experience:

  • Average magical points collected: 35
  • Highest magical points collected per game: 45
  • Lowest magical points collected per game: 15
  • Highest magical points collected for Magical Party Time: 210 
  • Lowest magical points collected for Magical Party Time: 155

I guess I'll still try for my luck for getting Cinderella and Fairy Godmother Tsums while the event is still going on because both of the Tsums come with special theme song, I'll definitely want Cinderella Tsum that plays the song"A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes" as it's my favourite song from the

Till next event!
