Oh goodness, I have not blogged in 6 months!
It must be my addiction to social media recently haha!
I shall now backtrack these 6 months of my life Haha!
As my friends know, I’ve recently joined a different company, after bumming around for 6 months and getting countless of rejections, mostly because I’m demanding too much for my salary haha!
I’m really thankful to have been accepted, Japanese pop culture is my passion. but not just pop culture, I love everything from Japan, from their traditional arts and crafts, their eccentric fashion, the music and down to geeky anime things like cosplay etc.
There were many ups and downs…one time I got so stressed, I went to the stairwell ,called my elder brother and cried my eyes out.
And everyone knows I HATE crying infront of people. Just gahh!
There were many happy moments, like meeting all my favourite artistes and cosplayers! and I got to experience a lot of things I’ve always wanted to experience; event managing and copywriting (although not too big on this part =_=)
So my first event was Anime Festival Asia, Malaysia!
This is AFA’s first satellite event overseas! (ﾉﾟ▽ﾟ)ﾉ☆彡ﾜｰｲ♪
My first business trip overseas as well!
Set-up of the stage!
Ly’s and my hotel room turned into a war-room/ store room as well haha!:
During my time in Malaysia, I got to meet a lot of wonderful friends! Thank you for a great time!
This is Kenny and Jay ahah!
Another great friend is Jeremy!
Kenny is my favourite bitchy buddy! Jay is always there to help out and so was Jeremy!
There were some unpleasant instances of course, but mostly my memories were filled with happy thoughts!
With super star cosplayer, KANAME!
Didn’t really talk to him much, I was being too fangirly, thinking about SPCats!
And here they are:
GOODNESS. Tasha is my number 1 cosplay idol!
I was too shy to say anything!
When I met them at the hotel to help them check-in, she automatically came up to me to say hi ad give me her cosplay card.
I was like star-struck so I didn’t talk much to them either (TT___TT)
I didnt even take a polaroid with them OTZ
I only snagged one pic with Tasha during the uchiage (>_<)
I also managed to watch some anisong concerts!
One of them being FLOW! fufufu!
They are super laidback and cool!
My fondest memory of flow was them hanging out at uchiage! And the plane ride back, one of the vocalist, Koshi, asked me what I was holding haha. It was 2 cushions from Kuroshitsuji haha!
I also grew really close to this guy, kai:
I actually didnt like Kai at the start HAHAA. He gave me a really bad impression when I first met him.
We became really close after AFAMY! haha!
My spend at AFAMY! Only purchased from MUSE:
Love these! They should come up with ones for Alois and Kuroko no basuke too!
Anyways, I’m really happy I made a lot of friends in AFAMY and forged stronger bonds with others.
There were times when I was scared? nervous? anxious? haha but all these experiences made me a stronger person, I feel! Haha! Also, due to the lack of sleep, I was a lot thinner haha!
I’m now going to fast-forward to AFA ID in my next post!
And skip a lot of things inbetween, like the wonderful, kick-ass OOR event! haha!
