Comic Fiesta 2017 @ Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre~!!

Assalam & hye everyone~!!

So, this will be my first post for 2018, but it is actually regarding an event in 2017, hehe...

Comic Fiesta 2017 was held on 16th-17th December 2017 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, right next to Suria KLCC. It is an annual event celebrating anime, manga, and game fans across Malaysia. For this event, I registered myself to become a volunteer (just wanted to gain experience).

This is the biggest anime+manga+game related event in Malaysia. It's also known as CF. Other events similar to this are Animangaki, Japan Otaku Matsuri, MGACE, Cosplay Festival, and others.

As a volunteer on the basic doujin booth team, I was assigned to guard the exit doors (doujin comes from the term doujinshi that means self-published works by amateurs). On Day 1, I wore the CF t-shirt, a panda shawl, and a panda hat (trying to portray myself as a panda lover, haha).

On Day 2, I wore a pink yukata (the same one that I wore during Bon Odori 2017).

Since I was on duty, I did not get to snap pics of the various cosplayers who attended the event. So, here are only a few pics that I have.

This pic was taken at 6.29 p.m., half an hour before closing time

Despite several issues that have arised due to the event, I still hope that CF will continue to be held in the years to come. For myself, I enjoy going there as I can meet old and new friends, see cosplayer idols face-to-face, buy merchandise, and see various people cosplaying their fave characters.

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!

Bon Odori 2017 @ Shah Alam~!!

Salam & hye everyone~!!

Well, this blog has been left for quiet a long time, haha.. Sorry for not updating regularly.

On 22nd July 2017, I went to the 41st Bon Odori 2017 at Kompleks Sukan Negara Shah Alam, Seksyen 21 a.k.a Panasonic Sports Complex. The first time I went to Bon Odori was back in 2015 (click here for the blog post). I didn't get a chance to go last year, though.

This year, I went together with Hannah and a friend of mine. It was their first time to Bon Odori.

Our yukata~~~.... Hannah's yukata (left) was bought in Japan ^_^

Hannah played a fishing game and ate okonomiyaki. It tasted just like takoyaki~...

The weather this year was superb, no rain at all! Previously, it usually rained or drizzled during the event, leaving a muddy field. And since it didn't rain this year, there was a fireworks display!

It was great fun! There was such a huge crowd too, as earlier that day, there was an event, Visual Arts Expo, at Shah Alam Convention Centre. Hope to go to Bon Odori again next year~!!! ヾ(´▽`*;)ゝ”

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!

Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016~!!

Assalam and hye everyone~!!

Well, it seems that I have not updated my blog for over a year, hihi.. Lots of stuff happening in my life, so I've left the blogging world for a (long) while.

So, on 17th December 2016, I went to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016 at MIECC @ The Mines. Hannah tagged along, it was her first time ever going to a book sale event. For those of you who do not know, Big Bad Wolf (or BBW, in short) is a book sale event held every year, usually in December. Books are on sale up until 95%!

This is an event that I look forward to every year. Besides being held in at the end of the year, BBW also has mini book sale events occasionally, especially the popular "box sale" - where you have to buy a box there and try to put in as many books as you can in the box.

At BBW 2016, Hannah and I met with a "real" Red Riding Hood. Here's a pic as proof :P

Me, Red Riding Hood, and Hannah

Besides that, we also found a huge Red Riding Hood book. So, of course, we had to take a selfie of it.

After maybe 3 hours, Hannah and I made our purchase of books, summing up to nearly RM150. I was on a tight budget, so not many books could be bought, huhuhu~... T^T Our book haul is as the following picture:

Our book haul :D

The best haul ever was getting the Barbie bookends along with 4 Barbie storybooks for only RM25.

Did any of you go to BBW 2016

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!
