Moena's 2013-2015 Quick Update~!


It's been almost 2 years I haven't posted anything! My life had been up and down and I guess I had been too busy to blog. Looking at my last post, it was actually Fuwa Fuwa Time Maid Cafe's first year posting! 

I'm gonna post quite a number of photos because a picture tells more than a thousand words (。◕‿◕。)

- 2013 -

So there was a competition among the Maids during the 1st year of Fuwa Fuwa Maid Cafe.
And I made it to 1st Runner-up maid of 2013 together with Chiaki (2 Runner-up) and Aika (Champion)~!  

We took pictures with our special guest, The 501st Legion, Malaysia's Outpost - Star Wars Troopers! 
- - - - -

After that I flew to Kuala Lumpur to attend Comic Fiesta with my sister and friends~! It was a very eventful trip! Trying to cut it short, the most memorable thing I remember at Comic Fiesta was meeting many people and one of them was Naneee? !

We often seen Naneee's lovely photos of cosplayers and now I'm so happy he help take a photo of my Momozono Nanami cosplay! 

My Momozono Nanami cosplay shot by Nanee? <3
It was an eye opening experience for me to work with a professional at that time. I'm really into cosplay photography and I really admired his concentration as the took each photo and adjusted the lightning each time I changed position.

Then I also met Zhirong!
My Orihime cosplay, shot by Foxfoo Photography
He is very friendly and very nice! His photographs are amazing, you can see more at his page Foxfoo Photography.

- 2014 - 

In 2014 I didn't even have time to update at all since I was flying here and there so much! 

To summarize:

In June - Magi Kou Empire Photo Shoot

I'm Kougyoku Ren~ the 3rd character from the right.

Kougyoku and Judal (by Kenny)! My favorite pairing in Magi! :3

In July - I went to Penang for CosPlay League Vol. 1

Group photo with everyone!

I was Songstress Yuna next to Molly Eberwein. Aza Miyuko came as Kotori. The guy in the middle is her manager. Top right of him is my sis Becky! And there were many amazing cosplayers here in the midst! I'm happy to meet everyone!

Then in Sept it's Otafuse! I was so rush for costume and dances!

Arise Team! I'm Yuki Anjuu~


It was a school theme for Otafuse 2014~ We all really enjoyed it!

- - - - -

In Dec, I went to Anime Festival Asia Singapore ( AFA SG 2014). It was awesome! 

 I manage to take a photo with: 
Yuegene, Kaname and Reika (as Yukari, Mikoto, & Reisi Munakata)!!!! I got their signatures too on my Angela's K album! *super happy to meet all 3 of them together*!!!
I met Danny Choo @ Culture Japan booth!

And I was also super lucky to meet H , Judy and Akatsuki Tsukasa cosplaying as Hinakawa, Akane and Shion from Psycho-pass! Their helper was so nice to allow me to take a picture with them <3  Sankyuu so much!

The remaining few days I also visited Universal Studio at Sentosa Island. It was great fun and I fell in love with Singapore!
- - - - - 

After my SG trip, I flew back to KK for Hobbycon ~ Our Fuwa Fuwa Time Maid Cafe theme for 2014 was Wonderland Tea Party!

After that, the next week I flew to KL for Comic Fiesta!

Before CF, I had a photoshoot with Taka ^-^ He's a photographer who could take photos that tells a deep story. I am really glad we could get a long really well! He shot my Yaya cosplay beautifully~

At Comic Fiesta I manage to meet a few friends. Couldn't really do much because it was so crowded this year and wasn't able to watch my friends that went for competition. But here's the highlights for CF2014
Special Guests were King, Mon, Liui, and Aza!
Unfortunately I don't have much photos from this trip because I accidentally wiped of all my data from my phone. It got rolled back. The only pics were uploaded photos from my instagram (moena_riu) ^^;

- 2015 -

After coming back from CF, I manage to work together with Vencent, Videl & Buma to shoot my Stephanie Dola from No Game No Life ~

Stephanie Dola from No Game No Life
I really appreciate the chance to be able to work with Videl and Buma senpais~! Not to mention, Vencent who is a great photographer! (He also shot my Mirajane in 2013)

This year my house had been under renovations for more than 6 months! I couldn't believe it either. My mom got greedy, lol! It started from her room, to her toilet, to an electronic gate, to the whole front porch, to an extra living room, to my sis' room, my second sis' room and then to my room! Imagine having to live in the house when the renovations are in process! There's only 1-2 worker each time, that's why it's taking like forever! My costume making went on hold! D:

During the last renovation month I couldn't stand it anymore and moved out for a month with my friend Sharon. She is very caring and I am always very thankful I had her as a friend since 2004. Although we don't often meet, she's one of my friend I can really relax with (maybe because she scolds me a lot, like a mom!). She even prepare breakfast for me and braid my hair each morning before I go to classes when I'm there. 

Waterfall Braid by Sharon <3

Up till now, I repeatedly wore my clothes each week because I still have 3 of my suitcase filled with clothes that I haven't unpack! #noshame :X  My room and study room system is kinda a mess now. I don't really know how to start! LOL! 

Even though I should be reorganizing my bedroom, but I think I would like to reorganize my living room first. Gonna try and set up my sewing corner as soon as I can since I want to start making costumes! I will be going to AFA SG this year again so I hope I'm able to bring a new simple costume. Hope to take more photos this time to redeem my last trip because my 2014 AFA and SG photos were wiped out due to hard disc breakdown on my Mac ( ̄(エ) ̄) . And so, I got a new MSI gaming laptop! Thanks to Timmy, Edwin and Bahamut for choosing it for me~!

With this laptop, I got hooked to Final Fantasy 14 - A Realm Reborn.
This year I'm also slowly getting more interested in music. I now know how to appreciate nice talented musicians. I wish someone would play the piano or violin for me now, Really feel like listening to beautiful piano & violin music~  Year of #ShigatsuKimiNoUso
Plus I was also asked to MC and sing for small assembly. I'm still a newbie, can't get the rhythm and key correct (I was tone deaf when I'm young (●´⌓`●) . I hope to learn more because I know the head of my school would force me up on stage again  (*・〜・*) .

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

June - I went to SG again~ I went there to meet my French housemate from Oxford and to celebrate my birthday there~ <3
Thanks to Timmy for the Haagendaz ice-cream cake!
And I manage to go to Funan Anime Matsuri which I was really lucky to learn a lot of things from their workshops, especially one of my KL friend, Alex's! (I still remember his outward appearance didn't change much since 2010, very easy to spot him! lol~) He is now famously known as A.R.C. Photography and he has even shot for Aza Miyuko~ I was actually very happy to see him there! ^-^

There were also a lot of interesting people there. There were 2 Mirai Illustrators! DMYO sensei and Ikkyuu Sensei. For cosplay celebrities....there's Angie, Yingtze, Baozi&Hana, DD-Tenka, Fuyuu-Kaji, Neneko, Shimo. There's also Bless4 anisong artist there~
Angie, Yingtze, DD-Tenka, Fuyuu-Kaji, Baozi&Hana, Shimo, Neneko.
Plus there's no entrance ticket~ Just walk into the mall!

July - Had another Magi photoshoot~ Have to wait patiently for Edgar to produce pictures~

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
August - Flew to KL then travelled to CyberJaya for a week for RSC then rushed back for Synchronise Roadshow Cosplay competition with Becky~

I love this skit so much~ Becky and I were really into FFX when we were young~ We worked together to play the game and now I was so happy we could perform a FFX skit together! Thanks so much sista for insisting to join the competition! 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sept - OTAFUSE~! This year I didn't cosplay for Otafuse because I decided to give back to the event by helping out. I have been enjoying myself each year but this year it's time to work to allow others to enjoy~

I was approached to handle an important task - Taking care of guests! So yay~ I get to see Angie & YingTze again!

I am still in shock going to Karaoke with YingTze...because of her choice of songs! lol! (✽ ゚д゚ ✽)

I really enjoyed both of them very much~! They are very nice and positive people~ They can be really funny at times! YingTze even gave me a photo book as a souvenir for taking care of her! Arigatou <3 *treasure it*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Oct - Halloween event~

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Oh ya, this weekend there's Mini Hobbycon at Suria! Entrance is free! I hope you KK folks would come and visit! Fuwa Fuwa Maid Cafe will be making an appearance~! We'll be offering some cute & delicious meido snacks and selling some limited merchandise. Hope to see you there!

This year's Fuwa Fuwa Time Maid Cafe theme is Sailormoon!!! 

FFT: "Our pretty and clumsy Moena chan as the pretty sailor suited soldier of Love and Justice, Sailor Moon!"
Yes, I'm quite a clumsy & blur person in real life, lol. Please bear with me~lol ( #●´艸`)

Thanks for reading my super long quick-update! I ended up writing 10 times more than I have intended *laughs*

I can't squeeze everything in but looking back help me record my histories, appreciate my life and count my blessings! I think God has been really good to me <3 He is amazing~! You all should get to know him too~ He gave me many eventful and happy memories till today and all He wants was for me to be happy~! 

Well, I hope to update more often in the future! For now I have to go get ready for tomorrow's Running Man event organised in my school!

ZOMBIE TIME - Lyrics for Plants Vs. Zombies 2 - Credits Song

Hi guys! It's about time for an update!

Recently I'm really crazy over Plants Vs. Zombie 2 games. We all know Plants vs. Zombie game is really addictive. With the second game out, I tell you, it's even more challenging and addictive than the first!

I'm lazy so I'm just reusing photos from my instagram

When it just came out, I feel so lucky to have an iOS interface accidentally set to Australia to be able to play it! HOHO!

Now I'm looking forward to FAR FUTURE to be released! That's the 4th world with alien zombies!
Taken from my instagram
I see a space ship! How long in the Far Future do we need to wait? 

By the way, you could listen to a cool song in the 'Menu > Options > Credits' section. It's really awesome and it made me want to sing along!

BUT! I couldn’t find the lyrics for Zombie Time anywhere on the internet! So, I’ve prepared the lyrics for all those Plants vs. Zombie fans! Let’s sing along now! >v<
Hope you'll enjoy it!

P.S. Let me know if you hear the lyrics differently as those damn zombies have terrible grammar.

Lyrics for:
Plants vs. Zombies 2 (Credits Song)
Performed by: Caspar Babypants
Music Done By: Chris Ballew

Anytime it’s Zombie Time!
I better, plant plants so the dead can’t eat my mind!
Back and forth it’s Zombie Time!
It feels, super groovy to be, uprooted in time!
Do it again it’s Zombie Time~
I know, it’s kinda wacko that a Taco could be that GOOD!
Time after time it’s Z-Z-Zombie Time!

Plants just want to grow~ (Be brave, that what zombie do)
Time grows fast and slow~ (Zombie detour, at the future)
Plants will keep you safe~ (Tock! Tick! Tock! Zombie walk!)
God know Taco for days~ (Baby I will ged-it out your brains on a silver platter!)
Anytime it’s zombie time!
I better, plant plants so the dead can’t eat my mind!
Back and forth it’s Zombie Time!
It feels, super groovy to be, uprooted in time!
Do it again it’s Zombie Time~
I know, it’s kinda wacko that a Taco could be that GOOD!
Time after time it’s Z-Z-Zombie Time!

Plants can shoot, defend, and blast! (Zombie no care, stagger and stare!)
Plant them in the distant past (Zombie want too, we want you!)
Plants are crafty creatures! (We zombie, that hurt we)
Plants in the distant future (It’s race through time in space and zombies love to travel!)

Still I’m dead in the past,
Still I’m dead in the future,
At last my plant mattered last,
We’ll get that zombie creature~

Anytime it’s Zombie Time!
I better, plant plants so the dead can’t eat my mind!
Back and forth it’s Zombie Time!
Super groovy to be, uprooted in time!
Do it again it’s Zombie Time~
I know, it’s kinda wacko that a Taco could be that GOOD!
Time after time it’s Z-Z-Zombie Time! ( x4 )

Lucy X Loke - Love Makes Spirits Stronger

I kinda feel guilty for being so excited to post a new post about my fairy tail dream and not about my recent fairy tail photoshoot, ops! So here it is~

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
 Love Makes Spirits Stronger 
Lucy Heartfilia and the Leader of the 12 Golden Zodiac Keys Loke

Fairy Tail

Lucy Heartfilia by Moena (me!)
Loke (Leo the Lion) by Loke Unilion Leo (ロキザカド)
Plue/Nikola by my handmade plushie Plue XD

Photographed by: 

I really love this shot a lot! >v<

Lucy Heartfilia is a Celestial Spirit Mage. She's in the Fairy Tail Guild and she is very kind towards Celestial Spirits and sometimes even to her enemies or rivals which is why I love her so much. She treats her Celestial Spirits just like friends instead of addressing them as the owner. 

In the anime, Loke is a Celestial Spirit disguised as a human as he is trapped in the human world. He joined the Fairy Tail Guild and is kinda flirtatious towards women. However, his affection is now directed towards Lucy when she managed to save his life by convincing the Celestial Spirit King to allow Loke to go back to the Celestial Spirit World. At that point, Loke was about to disappear since he is almost out of spirit energy to remain on earth land. Not being able to go back to the Celestial Spirit World means that he will just disappear into thin air. The Celestial Spirit King was impressed by Lucy's determination to save Loke so he removed the ban. In exchange, Loke must atone for his sins by protecting and serving Lucy, which then, his key materialized and Loke handed it to Lucy gratefully. 

 -  - 

Loke and I planned this shoot after the Animax Carnival in March 2013. We met there and liked each other's cosplay immediately! Loke became a really nice close friend of mine on the spot! We finally did the shoot in June 2013 when I could finally fly to KL for my holidays. Esther, who is Loke's best friend is our photographer of the day! Our first suggested location was at 1 Utama but then we got our favorite shot after playing the Dance Evolution Machine as well as after having our dinner at Tenshi no Cafe at e@Curve, hahaha! Thanks to the lovely supportive meidos who allowed us to shoot there~!

Thank you for being my amazing cheesy Loke dear Loke and thanks for the lovely shot dear Esther~

Miss hanging out with you girls already~! Hope to see you girls in December when I will be flying to KL again!

Lucy signing off~

My Journey To Earthland

I was as usual, sitting there one afternoon drinking milky tea at the garden and trying to get my homework done... Suddenly out of nowhere, out came Gajeel who said nothing but "tsuite koi" (follow me) in a solemn sad manner. I think because of his expression or maybe because he is a Fairy Tail character, I decided to follow him without any questions. And apparently I left all my stuffs there and just walked with him. (I guess I will never do this in real life, or at least I would at least grab my laptop along so if you haven't noticed, this is just my afternoon nap dream XD )

We walk through a few blocks of shops with cars zooming by. We took a few turns and the crowd lessens... eventually we arrived at an area where there weren't anyone around.

Gajeel halted at the alley, without warning, said "Ikkuze" (I don't know how to pronounce it... I kinda know it means let's go in my dream)

Then we were inside another dimension and there were white sparks / beams or whatever it is which keeps moving like electric or something. Knowledge seemed to flow into my mind without reason. I knew we were going to the Anime world and there's even a manual showing me in my mind that I will go blind in the real world because of the transformation, since anime eyes and real eyes are so different. The portal is asking me in my mind whether I would like to go ahead and I nodded. The transformation was complete and I got anime eyes! I was kinda shocked at first, knowing that I will go blind in real life if I ever to return to my world. At that moment, I didn't tell Gajeel because I don't want him to feel guilty for asking me to come. And at that time, I kinda know(?) that Gajeel is asking me to go to Fairy Tail Earthland to help them.

So, we arrived... spit out by the portal and it seemed like the portal was opened up by a machine located in the basement. We were in a place with grey bricked walls, felt like were were at the basement of a castle. It has a medieval feel. Then we heard footsteps and Gajeel's face turned into a very alert and serious mode. I whispered "let's hide" sensing the tensed atmosphere and the danger. We planned to hide behind big flags hanging on the wall but the flags doesn't extend until the floor so it will look very obvious. At the moment of danger, I don't really know why or how, I managed to conjure up a fake hologram wall by extending my hands. I was so scared of being discovered that I kept shivering. Gajeel looked at me with amazement and it felt like he understand my uhh call it magic? more than me.

Two person with army robes walked in to check the portal room and they were talking. From the looks of it, they were not mere clueless soldiers. I was so nervous  as they walk around the basement... and then, it seemed like they were walking towards our direction! Which means they were about to walk through my hologram and bump into us!

Gajeel grabbed my waist with his left hand and jumped up to the ceiling, with his right hand grabbing onto a budged out brick on the wall. The two person felt some wind movement and look towards the higher wall but they didn't see anything... one of them was trying to touch the wall but luckily it was an area lower than our position. My stretched out hands is still holding out the hologram. My heart is beating so fast...

The light was shining in through the window... It is also day time over there in Earthland....



ARRHHH!!!! Why do I have to wake up now??? I want to continue my dream please!!!!

Hmm, Gajeel had a dead look in his eyes, those kind of expression where someone has lost everything in his life. So I assumed something must have happened to Levy but I didn't have the chance to ask him. This dream made me want to read Fairy Tail manga! Up until now, I have been resisting the manga because I only watch the anime....didn't want it to spoil the anime but I'm so curious on what happened in their world now and what happened to the guild! Dang, I really want to continue my dream!

(photo from fairy.wikia.com)
Gajeel, not really my favorite characters in Fairy Tail but he was kinda kakkoii in my dream as he grabbed my waist with only one arm!!! 

That't all about my dream... I hope I get to write a continuation on what will happen...

P.S. It happened during my 1 hour nap... And, I woke up sweating... a bit tensed yet grateful because I can still see with my eyes, hahaha! I hope part 2 can take place during my 8 hours sleep so I could stay in their world longer :D

Back In The Land Below The Wind

I'm back in KK now~! Yahhoo!

Now I can start working on more cosplans! 

I've finished my conquest in England and shall continue to adventure with some fairies here, hehe...

Recently I was so busy I forgot to update my blog a bit so here's what I did - I made it back in time for one vocaloid group photoshoot and KK Cosplay Club invitation to UMS (few previous posts). I was still busy with long distance homework at that time so I'm not allowed to announce officially that I'm back :X

Then there's the GAME ON night at Pan Pacific Sutera where a group of us were paid and treated like 'Artis' (that's what the title on my table says) to keep those people excited throughout the night. We were also pampered with 5-stars hotel dinner and  pen drive freebies for coming. WAW!

And there's the UMS Cultural Night which I had missed where both times I was 16+ hours away by flight! This time I get to go and enjoy it. UMS Cultural Night with Bon Odori brings so much of 'Nihon' feel to our beloved city. It was really fun! I'm so happy I finally get to watch KKB88 Hakumei Dance LIVE! 

And because I'm the missing lazy member who's not around to contribute for more than a year... I happily volunteered myself to record it there for them ^^"

- - - - - - - 


 You see, and I had squeezed enough free time to prepare 2 sets of cosplays (although I still procrastinated a lot, like usual XD ). 

This time I'm really happy with my sewing speed. My sewing machine must have missed me lots so it didn't jam that much to show her love for my return! Aww~! 

AND SO, I managed to bring 2 versions of Lucy to Hobbycon this year! >v<

DAY 1: 

This is my favourite Lucy outfit! It's so cute and sweet at the same time <3

DAY 2: 

Photo credites to Joan Tseu 
Special thanks to Vironica for borrowing me her Nikola!

I wore this for Day 2 because me and my sis managed to form a Fairy Tail group last minute and this version fits the overall group better. 

Here's two really nice videos from Hobbycon 2012 if you would like to get a feel of ACG event in Sabah :

Try to spot me! >v< 

Video made by Jack

Video by Pjal

I'm really happy to see all my awesome cosplayer friends that I missed so much! They are so good in what they do now. There's even more cool props maker in KK now~! Especially my own sis who leveled up so much! Ho ho.... I saw part of how she managed to put her Erza Heaven's Will Armour together! It's really amazing!

Our community had really grown a lot since the first time I started cosplaying. It's so fun to see everyone grow ^-^

- - - - -

I also did a photoshoot with Richard for his promotional materials. This time I dressed up as Lenne (FFX-2) together with Becky as Yuna (FFX-2), Leon Carbine and Rei Robin. It was good to be able to work with such a passionate photographer with so much experience and I learned so much from him! Thank you!

Here's some future updates:

I'll be going to KL next week for Animax Carnival 2013! Looking forward to see May'N 's performance and to meet my friends from Semenanjung! Hope some of them didn't run off to AFA in SG on the same date >.< If you're there, please cheer for me too since I'm really nervous for the competition.

And one more update, catch me at IPEX, this end of March at Sabah Trade Centre. I'll be cosing in the morning session from 10am - 2pm. Looking forward to put some smiles in the faces of those kids who would be there for the colouring contest~!  

That's the gist of it... phew, this was a bit long - my fault for not updating more often, eheh. 

- - - - - 

P.S. Pray for Peace in Sabah as we are currently facing some terrorist attack where some schools are closed and a lot of policemen had died.

Take care minna, stay safe!!!!


Moena flying off!
