AFA 09 Day 1

AFA 09 I love Anisong Miku Hatsune

We had a blast at the AFA 09. Day 1 was exhausting but super, super fun!

AFA 09 Toypusher & Danny ChooI was really happy (though I look awkward and really sleepy in the photo) to meet top blogger and CEO of Mirai Inc., Danny Choo. Danny’s always smiling, he’s really nice and friendly. Thank you, Danny for bringing the Tokyo Figure Show to Singapore! It was really an awesome showcase of figures. Later that day, Danny talked on stage about blogging and his company, Mirai Inc. Too bad I wasn’t able to see him dance in his Storm Trooper costume because we were outside the exhibition hall to get some drinks and forgot about the time. T.T

I really should have ordered this figure.  Saber Lily looks amazing!I really should have ordered this figure. Saber Lily looks amazing!

AFA 09 Miku HatsuneHere’s another figure that I didn’t pre-order. When I saw Miku on display and looking really pretty, I’m convinced that I’ll buy this figure when I get the chance.

AFA 09 I love Anisong ShokotanThe I love Anisong Concert was fun. The crowd loved performances by Shoko Nakagawa, Vocaloid Miku Hatsune (main photo) and Ichirou Mizuki.

Flying to Singapore for the Anime Festival Asia is worth the effort. Though I wasn’t able to buy lots of toys which was my initial intention of going there, I really had a great time seeing wonderful people at the event. And Singapore is a really beautiful place, I love it! I’ll post some pictures from Day 2 soon. ^^
