FFXIII, Chowking Anniv Aftermath (photos + videos)

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 12, 2010, 3:17 AM






Chowking's 25th Anniversary

Going back...Photo spam starts now. XD




With Joey Alarilla, Social Media Editor of Yahoo! Southeast Asia.


This event was also a great opportunity to meet different people from
various industries. The big guys from Chowking!




And the winner of this competition was the lovely Geisha girl, Monique! MorningMiracle.


Monique MorningMiracle with her lovely mom~! She won an orange Polaroid digital camera that night!


Adorable Hye won an orange Swatch watch just by dancing the Orange chicken dance with Gian.


Gian and I testing out the new entree.


The event was held in a Chowking's biggest branch with 2 floors, at The Fort, Bonifacio Global City.


Confetti!! Thanks to my mom for this awesome photo!

While the program was going on, everyone was dancing to the tunes of Tik Tok by Ke$ha.
It was a great experience to be able to dance and bond with fellow cosplayers,
photographers and bloggers in the community.


Awesome photographers Gian and Richie!


Raymond of CSCentrl.com.


Homer, Xandra and Aikia!


Kawaii Louella, the 4-yr-old cosplayer!


Me and Enma Ai cosplayer, Rafi!

The event was precise and everything ended quite on time
but I think a couple of cosplayers including myself weren't
ready to leave yet. We proceeded to the garden adjacent to
the building and conducted a mini impromptu shoot.


Here is Megatron cosplayed by Willie. And he just crossed the street!
We were afraid that if a car hit him, the car would shatter into pieces.
That's Megatron, dude!! Kidding! LOL


Mini impromptu shoot with Cosplay Photographers Guild!

The Chinese Empress by BlackMageAlodia Empress by KiraHokuten Empress II by KiraHokuten Alodia Blossoms by PuRaWsKi Pitch Black Orange by KiraHokuten


Tessa as Yui of K-On and Megatron taking an interest on learning how to play the guitar. XD


Dad (right) and a couple of guys observing our shoot...


Garry, Mom, Xandra and Obet!

The following photos are from KiraHokuten's Album:




Cykah as Lord Odin from Ragnarok Manga!


Ivan Valerio as Crab dude? o.o. He won a date with Jericho Rosales!


Caption pls? LOLCATS version. XD


Jericho!


Me and Mom!


Group photo!! Hye, Louella, Gian, Me, Homer, Dariru, Purawski, Ramyond!

Once again, thank you to the organizers for having us part of
this amazing event. And thank you to all the cosplayers, bloggers
and photographers who were able to make it there!

*suddenly wants to order Orange Chicken from Chowking*

I met your cousin Sherie Luat at ozine 2010 day 3, and she cosplayed as Gunmage Yuna.. I never expected that I would come across a relative of yours.. just sharing..

I bought the FFXIII for PS3 (I got so excited that I forgot I don't have a ps3 :cries:), sad to say I don't have the console, so I wouldn't be able to play it.. I'm planning to sell it or just give it to someone who might have a PS3.. :O

But thank you for the gists, at least I got an idea on what the game would be like.. =D :heart:

The game is a bit linear. No mazes. No town-hopping. No hours spent looking for an importan...

the Shiva Twin figures are WICKED!!! it actually transforms to a bike!!!! sexy and awesome!!!!

FF10 heralded Uematsu's stepping back from the orchestral helm, having an assistant and 10-2 having practically no involvement in.
While FF11's OST was mainly orchestrated by the minds behind Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Uematsu apparently had contributed to it as well, and FF12's OST was worked on by Hitoshi Sakamoto who did Final Fantasy Tactics. This is not including as well the spin off games... so yeah. Uematsu's getting old, so its no surprise that he's slowly handing the reins of the main series to someone else.

I certainly hope you are feeling better now. I remember you being sick sometime last year too. I know you know your limits, but don't push yourself too hard, okay?

I have yet to play FFXIII. I opted to get Yakuza 3 since it took over a year to bring the game to the states and I was afraid that it would disappear if I didn't get it quick enough. Have you tried it before?

You wanna know why there is no nobuo eumatsu composition on the game? It is because he wants to focus to upcoming release of FFXIV, and he score all of the music on the game, that's why he did not contribute on the FFXIII, but I think as far as I remember what I read, he supposed to compose the main theme of the game. That's all I remembered.

YES! I completely agree with the linearity of XIII. I mean-- sure, the FF games (and arguably, JRPGs in general) have this habit of being linear but the amount of gameplay, sidequests and whatnot would always be there to keep you occupied. XIII was severely lacking in that department TT A TT

Undoubtedly it has the best graphics of all but nggh... orz

On another note, the Shiva sister figure looks amazing~ * u *

Great to see you're feeling better(?)! The Chowking photos look great!
Really loving the FFXIII features! I just beat the game a few days ago myself. By far one of my favorite FF games since FFVI. Also because the lead character was not a whiny-ass teenager. LOL :XD:
Annnd... SHIVA PLAYARTS DO WANT!! I'm still sad I didn't get her in Japan when I had the chance. =( =( Odin is also nice to have: [link] =D

I've heard all sorts of things about FF13- mostly about the story. All of my friends loved the graphics, hated the rest of the game. My boyfriend, who is a loyal fan of FF, played all the games, even 11, the MMO, refuses to play the game based on the commercial, with the singer. XD

*g @ that yodel. that was cute :meow:

and its kind of interesting that wherever something about ff xiii is written, its almost always the authors take on linearity and that compared to other final fantasies, it felt not as full-fleshed, from a worldbuilding point of view. :(
its really sad, because i was hyped like mad and really wanted to have a pretty world to spend hours in, look at cities, try to find hidden stuff, rare stuff, etcetera. and seemingly without that, my interest in the game vaned. :(

what im really REALLY looking forward to now, is 3d dot game heroes in may! :meow: thats going to be so awesome :D (and mgs peace walker, but ill need to buy a psp first -.-)

Ugh, at least you were able to finish FF13. Mine keeps freezing at ch10 so I've given up on playing. Major disappointment. Oh and Nobuo was assigned to do music for FF14 which should be coming out soon that's why he wasn't able to do music for FF13. I do like that song "Eternal Love" by Sugawara Sayuri. I am a bit disappointed that they took out the towns, I heard there was supposed to be Lightning's house in there but they took it out and the linearity of the game has its pros and cons, I guess it suits Final Fantasy 13.

Ah, so good to get an update, been waiting soooo long ;).

Hope you guys are doing better now. I have actually missed the last 2 FF titles, was never sure if the gameplay really ever progressed/improved. Now you've made me curious to catch it up :).

You look so cool/pretty in that dragon kimino, the colour totally suits you!

BlackMageAlodia Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, sorry about the delay!

So far, we've regained our health and we're working bit by bit. Trying to pace ourselves back to normal. :)

You missed FF12 and FF11 or FFX-2? I've played almost all FF games... Except the ones online and on the DS since I don't own a Nintendo DS. I'm kinda biased to the PS. I used to have a Nintendo Gameboy SP though but the Wii killed my fondness for Nintendo stuff. LOL Biased!

Thank you! The dragon kimono is really pretty!~^_^ Would love to have owned it but we returned it back to Ms. Regine since she sponsored my outfit. It's alright though. :)

Crap, I've not played any FF games after 11, so that puts me back quite a bit :(.

Thanks again, for all the feedback, enjoy your week!

it was a photo contest for a european playstation magazine. that month the magazine had a ff13 special edition with 4 different covers and contestants had to find all 4 cover versions and take a picture with them along with themselves. I guess I mainly won because I took my picture in my room wich is practically a final fantasy museum now ^^; lol

i like final fantasy 7 best mainly because ...compared to the later ones, it had the most gameplay. the dating mini sim, the mini games and the different quests you had to do in order to advance the game....i miss those times..now it often feels a bit that square focusses too much on the graphics and not on the gameplay..because in the end we did pay money to play a game...not to watch a movie,
