2019 DEC 11th EOY J–Culture Festival, Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore

28 December 2019 Saturday

281219 (Sat)

The last cosplay event for the year 2019 here in Singapore.

I reached Suntec City at 1300 hours after my lunch.

It was quite crowded at level 4 with people queueing up and security checks to enter the halls.

There was also another event beside the EOY hall.

Most of the cosplayers and photographers came down to the Level 3 concourse as there was an open area as half of it was occupied by the snack fair event.

291219 (Sun) Day Two

I reached Suntec City at 1300 hours.

There were no queue to get into the halls.

There were more photographers then cosplayers today.

I went for my lunch at 1400 hours, while walking to cross the road to Marina Square, saw a man fell down while trying to cross the road.

Managed to help him to stand up with the help of his wife. Told them to rest inside Suntec City before heading back to their hotel.

I went home at 1700 hours as most of the cosplayers were going off for their dinner.

See you in the year 2020.

Carpe Diem.

2019 DEC Comic Fiesta, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia

21 December 2019 Saturday

211219 (Sat) Day One

I reached the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) at around 0930 hours.

Many access to the top level of the convention centre were closed for the KL summit.

As a result, there were massive crowd forming at the underpass with no clear direction to go up and no Comic Fiesta volunteer to ask.

The access was restored about half and hour later and the fences that were put up were removed.

Quite hot weather outside and it was very packed inside the convention centre.

221219 (Sun) Day Two

I reached KLCC at 1000 hours.

Lesser crowd today compared to yesterday.

A bit difficult to take photos as the pedestrian path was crowded with people and the hot weather.

I went back to my hotel at 1600 hours as I was feeling really tired.

It started to rain at 1740 hours.

Cheers.

2019 1st Singapore Comic Con, Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

7 December 2019 Saturday

071219 (Sat) Day One

I reached the Sands Expo and Convention Center at 1145 hours.

The queue to go into the halls was not that long at that time.

There were not that many cosplayers outside and I decided to go for my lunch at 1300 hours.

While making my way back to MBS from having my lunch at the Golden Miles Food Centre, saw a SCDF light fire attack vehicle and some of the firefighter were using breathing apparatus making their way to The Concourse.

A few minutes later, more policemen arrived at the scene.

Most probably a false alarm as the firefighters were back at their vehicle later while the policemen stayed to investigate about the fire alarm.

When I reached MBS, there were long queue forming to enter the halls.

Returned home at 1800 hours as they were not that much cosplayers after that.

081219 (Sun) Day Two

When I reached the Sands Expo and Convention Center at 1130 hours, the queue to go into the halls were quite short.

Quite a good number of cosplayers went down today maybe due to the cosplay competition.

It was packed at 1200 hours due to the churchgoers that came down after their church services at the top halls of the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

This is the second last cosplay event here in Singapore where the 2019 EOY is the final event.

Have a safe journey to all those that are going down to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the 2019 Comic Fiesta Malaysia.

Cheers

2019 NOV 11th C3 Anime Festival Asia, Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore

28 November 2019 Thursday

Time past very fast and it has been ten years that I have taken photos at the Anime Festival Asia (AFA).

I first started attending the AFA in 2009 after reading an article in the Straits Times newspaper about a cosplay event at Suntec City.

There were more people shopping at Suntec City then cosplayers and photographers at that time and there were still no mobile studio.

These are the photos that I have taken in 2009, a blast from the past, #10yearchallenge

Some of the cosplayers are still cosplaying to this day.

Cheers.

I managed to check out Suntec City during my lunch break.

There was quite a long queue to buy the tickets.

There is a property booth at the Level 3 concourse, a few claw machines and a booth selling drinks.

291119 (Fri) Day One

I reached Suntec City at 1500 hours.

Not that many people around today.

I did not really take much photos.

I went back home at around 1900 hours by bus and was caught in the jam due to road closures for tomorrow’s Singapore marathon.

Those coming down tomorrow, I would advise to plan ahead with your transport.

301119 (Sat) Day Two

I reached Suntec City at around 1030 hours.

There was a long queue to buy the tickets.

Many makeshift studios were already deployed near the windows of the Level 3 concourse.

The window blinds at the Level 3 concourse were partially opened and it was closed later in the afternoon.

The crowd only came it after lunch and it was packed to the gills.

I was informed that the photographers were told to leave Level 4 due to the large crowd.

The Suntec City security guards were busy making things difficult for the cosplayers and photographers.

The lights at the Level 3 concourse were not switched on when I was there at 1830 hours and it was quite dark.

It was a total nightmare to return home due to the road closure for the 2019 Singapore Marathon.

Many roads were closed causing causing massive road jams, bus passengers had to alight further away as bus stops were also closed and packed trains.

Photos are still being post processed.

Cheers.

I reached Suntec City at 1000 hours.

Lesser crowd today compared to yesterday.

I took quite a lot of photos on the last day.

I left at 1830 hours as many of the cosplayers and photographers were going back home or going for their dinner.

Quite a tiring day after three days of AFA.

Cheers.

2019 OCT Alter Ego Cosplay, Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore

26 October 2019 Saturday

261019 (Sat) Day One

This is the first cosplay event at the Jewel Changi Airport.

The stage area for the event at the South Gateway Garden was very small.

It was difficult to take photos near the stage area and most of the cosplayers were reluctant to go down to Level 1.

The cosplay mascot parade was joined by some of the Jewel Changi Airport shop mascots.

The parade went round the Jewel Changi Airport and a group photo was taken at the basement near the fountain.

I did not stay for the cosplay competition.

Cheers.
