A Day’s Visit at a Mini Fiesta

Due to heavy amount of stress and workloads IRL, I’ve totally forgotten about this year’s Comic Fiesta Mini. Thank goodness I have my trusty schedule on my Sumaho to remind me of that.

Held during last weekend, CFMini 2016 once again held within the halls of Straits Quay Convention Centre, the same venue as prior year.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again to visit the Bon Odori Matsuri held at the Esplanade on my island. =w=

Arriving a couple of hours earlier in order to avoid heavy traffic, I’ve instead paid a visit to a Theme Cafe located just close-by, as there’s an Anime Cosplay Gathering happened since the morning on the same day.

Never actually enter this Toys Café before since its opening years back, I’m extremely curious of what decorates the interior of this café, while showing up my face and mingle with the attendees of the gathering…
