Anime Convention and cosplay

Last Sunday, I finally attended an Anime Convention.

I always said that I wanted to go...and I missed it last year so I went this year~!! 

 


It is a 2 day convention. However, I only went on the second day which was a Sunday. Surprisingly, there was A LOT of people.


 It was really overwhelming. There were just so many people and things to see. And since it is my first time here, I am not really sure what to do.

I saw many cosplayers. A lot of them wore really expensive and exquisite costume.

elaborate japanese traditional costume



Then, there were weird costumes. Boxes, much?  

Box dude.


Then, there were adorable cosplayers with pretty good costumes.
 
Gauche from Tegami Bachi

Belphagor and his twin brother from Katekyo Hitman Reborn


 Surprisingly, there were kids too.....


Did I cosplay too? Well, yes I did. I cosplayed as Kanmuri Shigeru. I mean, I bought that costume last year and didn't use it. So I thought that I should atleast use it once. So that's why I decided to cosplay.

lol. no, I'm not gonna show you a pic of me. So here, enjoy the real character's pic~!
 

Anyhow, I kinda understand why people like cosplaying.

I mean, for that one day, you can be a weird character or anything it is you want to be. And the costumes, even though they look hard to pull off. I don't think they are hard at all. Once the person gets used to the costume, it's no longer a problem. At one point, I thought my wig was my hair. So yea...

And not only that, it's also the 5 minutes of fame. I mean, people will want to take pictures of your costume. So yea. There's a high there.

As for me, I just like the idea of wearing all these exquisite and wonderful costumes. How often do you get to dress up like this anyway?

Unfortunately, this is a very expensive hobby.

So yea.

If I get to go for next year's convention, I will definitely go and cosplay again~!


PS : 

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE~~!!!!

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…
