Comic Fiesta 2012.

Ps, this is going to be a long post. So, you have been warned.

This year, I decided to go to Comic Fiesta, which is an ACG (Anime, Comic & Games event).

Comic Fiesta is held in December, during a weekend. So, that means, there are two days. Last year, I only attended Day 2. But this year, I decided to attend both days~!

However, you need to buy tickets for this event. It's $20 per day. So, it's $40 for both days. If you buy the early bird, it's $35 for both days. But the early bird tickets ran out before I could buy them. 

AND THEN, BOOM, I saw something. 
Volunteering for Comic Fiesta. It will allow me to attend both days for free. Instantly, I signed up for it. Luckily, I got it~!


Comic Fiesta.
It is an event that many ACG fans await.
It is a place where you can be an ACG fan and not be judged. 
It is a place to meet other cool ACG fans.
It is a place to see your favourite characters come alive (thanks to cosplay).
It is a place to dress up as your favourite character or dress up in anything you fancy.
It is a time to just have fun and let loose as an ACG fan.
To me, this is what Comic Fiesta meant.

Well, Comic Fiesta is an annual event. Because a lot of people were cosplaying, I, too, had to have a special costume or at least, wear something special or something that I usually don't wear.

Luckily for me, Hisana lent me her nice costume. 
Arigato ne, Hisana~! *bows* 
So, that means, I had something nice to wear. 
What did I wear? Haha, not gonna tell you.

For the first time, I put on make up. It was a very light, sheer and natural one. It's just to cover my pores and so that my face don't look too crappy.
For the first time in two years, I put on a skirt. It's been a while and it completely felt odd at first.
For the first time, dressing up took half an hour.

Only in Comic Fiesta do I bother. Yes, only in Comic Fiesta. 

So, if you want to see me in make up or a skirt, you will have to come to Comic Fiesta. I will not wear one for any other occasion.

I was glad that I wore something special. Anyhow, surprisingly, there were people who wanted to take a picture of me or take a picture with me. 

I was really surprised but I was honoured. I never been asked like that before. It's just so sudden and surprising.
So, I tried to pose or smile properly but I probably epic fail on that. SIGHS.

Hehe. I can see why cosplayers love cosplaying now. I, too, plan to wear something nice again when I go to Comic Fiesta next year.

I got to meet up with old friends who were really hardcore on Comic Fiesta.

Anyhow, Comic Fiesta is a big deal to a lot of ACG fans, look at the crazy crowd. But then again, I am not surprised. It's an annual event that everyone has been waiting for. 

I volunteered for Comic Fiesta this year. That makes me a Felynes. (Don't ask me how to pronounce this as I am unsure too.) Hisana was also a Felynes.


I don't have tickets but I have a tag~! And yes, I got Danny Choo's signature. But unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture with him. SIGHS. Oh well, next time....

Anyhow, I got a pretty nice duty with Hisana~!
And at least, we took nice long breaks together. Hush, don't tell anyone.
Some Felynes didn't even get a break but of course, we make it up by working hard.

Although I didn't get to walk around much but it was still enjoyable. 
I love the atmosphere and the people. Get to meet a lot of crazy people and I LOVE it~!

And oh, I love that Comic Fiesta had a concert on Day 1 at night. Yes, I got to attend a concert for free~! 

Personally, I do not know this band. But they were amazing, singing live. Just from this one concert, I am now a fan of theirs. So yea.

They are siblings, interestingly enough but that's sweet though. 
I like how Japanese bands or groups are always so friendly and they are always interacting with the fans. They were just so nice~!

I also loved how the fans preferred that they speak Japanese and not English. But I understand why. Even I would prefer them to speak Japanese. We, ACG fans, pride that we learn Japanese from all the ACG that we love.

Even though Comic Fiesta was exhausting, I had loads of fun and it was all worth it. If I go back next year (most likely I would), I will volunteer again so that I can meet all the crazy people again~!

It's not what, when or where that makes an event. It's who. 

I am still considered a newbie for Comic Fiesta as this is only my second time attending it. But I see why people love it.
And I love it too.
Comic Fiesta, it leaves you wanting more. 

Anyhow, it was a great event~!

So, this is some pictures from the event itself.
Pictures below are not from me but from Benjamin Foo

Till next year then~!

PS, I didn't buy anything from Comic Fiesta because I was broke. I am broke because I bought a new phone.

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…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

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…
