A Gathering of Collectors

Got an invitation to join a gathering of us local collectors of various anime/manga/game figures and toys, last weekend.

We were encouraged to bring along some of our collections for display, as this is also an exhibition event or sort, in a local mall close by.

Incidentally within the same day, there are other events going on around town, on the island and main land. The Bounenkai, a cosplayers event at another mall nearby; Danny Choo’s Culture Japan Night (Noon infact, just like the one 3 years back, same venue even… ^^;) at yet another venue, still within the island; And Day 2 of an ACG event called TAGCON in the main land.

As I’ve already promised and committed to turn out in the Anime Collectible & Games Penang event, I’d to abandon the idea of attending the rest, although my close friends did managed to visit them in my stead. XDc

For the uninitiated, it is the Year of the Goat, or Sheep, or Ram, or whatever you like it to be… :P

Sorry for the reuse of the same neta, but I think the 4koma is very suitable for this Lunar New Year.

III-rd Invasion of a Cosplaying Event

Last weekend, a medium-sized, two-day otaku event was held in Penang Times Square, attracting many comrades and clueless public for a visit since entry is free of charge! ^_^

Cosplay Invasion III was organised by collaborations of many like-minded groups and features guests such as illustrator/cosplayer Shirahane Nao-sensei aka DMYO-sensei, cosplayer Stayxxxx and cosplayer Onnies.

Wait… DMYO-sensei cosplays!? Isn’t DMYO-sensei the one behind those lovely illustrations of Danny Choo’s Suenaga Mirai?

Oh yes, I was quite surprised too when I saw her in Hatsune Miku cosplay (You can catch a glimpse at her just behind Stayxxxx’s Hatsune Mikuo here in this piccie, which I haven’t realised it was her at the time of the shot…) during my brief visit… =w=

Sisterly Love… Winter Sonata

February the 14th, the Saint Valentine’s Day. A day where couples of the world celebrate. Also celebrated by forever-arones all around as the Singles Awareness Day. XDc

The 15th day of the 1st month of the Lunar Year also falls on the same day. Called the 元宵/十五晚 (Yuan Xiao/Chap Goh Meh), which is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Such coincidence! :3c
