My Experiences of the "ACGC 2008" Event.

Well, I'm really sorry for not posting about this post way earlier, and thanks to Lawrence's dad for providing me transport to and fro. Here goes my story.

Last month, there was an event titled "ACGC 2008" (ANIME, COMIC, GAME CONVENTION) which was held for 2 days, from 27th - 28th of Sept. 2008, at the MVEC Hall in Midvalley Megamall. This event started from 10 am till 9 pm... and yes, both Lawrence and me were there during this event's 2 days. ^^

And oh yes, a lot of photos were definitely taken by me and Lawrence, using my dad's digital camera. ^^

On the 1st day of this event, after his dad picked me up from my house etc, after we finally reached the shopping mall's entrance, we then walked to that hall to see how the situation's like... well, since we went in so early there wasn't anything attractive to see yet, as the booths are currently set up. So, we waited until all the stuff was set up then we went in.

~> Me, infront of the hall where the event took place. ^^ (Thanks, Lawrence for taking this pic.)

After we went in again, there were various booths, ranging from booths that specialises in selling anime-related merchandise and booths which promote both current and new online games alike. There is even a booth specially for the 'Nintendo Wii' game system. It was quite fun to see Lawrence play on that 'board' thing, which really made me LOL since he told me he's a 'shoe magnet', and he was right. hahaz

Well, this particular event also hosts the 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" game competition, and he was planning to join it, but the competition wasn't started so early... so we then decided to hit the arcades for some fun and kill some time. We played some of those arcade games like 'Daytona USA' and 'Let's Go Jungle'. It was fun playing both of those games, but we didn't plan to complete the 'Let's Go Jungle' game on this event's 1st day (we did complete the whole game on this event's 2nd day though. ^^)

In the Anime aspect of this event, it was quite disappointing for both of us (well, mostly me... anyways) since there weren't much cosplayers on this event's 1st day, but since I'm already here, I gotta do what I gotta do: Take cosplayer's pics! ^^ ~hahaz~

Here are some of the cosplayer's pics which I managed to snap. ^^

~> 'Axel' cosplayer, of "Organisation XIII" fame. ^^

~> 'Kurosaki Ichigo' cosplayer, of the popular "Bleach" anime. ^^

~> 'Luffy' cosplayer (One Piece anime) wearing Ichigo Kurosaki's Hollow mask? lolz

Around noon to night time, the 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" game competition started and Lawrence's turn was finally up. Some of the participants in this competition are from gaming clans and he was challenging 1 of them. So, I gave him words of support while he was playing. After the competition, we then played for a while in the arcade then both of us then went back home.

On the way back, he told me that the 2nd day of this event would be more exciting, since there will be a Cosplay competition... and yes, the 2nd day of this event was definitely better than the 1st day... since I took lots of pics of cosplayers and other stuff on that day. ^^

That's all I've to say about the 1st day of this event for now. I might publish a post about my experiences on the 2nd day of this event, if I've the time to do so. See ya!

A seemingly tiring day...

Well, today I basically spend some time in the 'DotCom 8' cyber cafe with Lawrence. Around 2 pm-ish, we both had lunch at McDonald's then both of us returned to that cyber cafe around 3 pm. Then, as before... I played the 'Speed Racing' application on Facebook.

After that, me and Lawrence then went to the AniMac club meeting at 4 pm. The agenda of the meeting was the 'Bon Odori Event' which will be held next year, during the month of March (5th of March). Of all the respective groups which are available to help make this event happen, I decided to join the 'Exhibition' group (since I'm able to design certain things) and provide some extra help to the people who're in charge of the 'Games' group. Hopefully I can attend this particular event next year!!! ^^

That's all I've to say for now. I'll be updating my blog with more updates soon! See ya!

An Awesome day!

I really had an awesome day today!!! ^^

Well, because Melissa (who's 1 of my ex-school friends) decided to hang out with me at the college that I'm studying at (which is UCSI).

Both of us agreed we'll meet each other at the 'Secret Recipe' food outlet around 12 pm. So, I plan to reach my college around 12 pm-ish. After I've reach there, I walked towards that food outlet to see whether she was there, but she was nowhere to be seen. I then decided to go to the 'Dotcom 8' cyber cafe and see whether my college friends were there or not, and yes, 2 of my college friends were there - Lawrence and Shaun, who were playing away at their games. Since she seems not to be here yet, I decided to join them for a fun and car-crashing game of FlatOut 2's 'Derby' mode. It's a 3-Way Free-For-All Derby! lolz
(It was fun, beating them for 3 times in-a-row!!! woohoo XD)

After a few rounds of awesome car-crashing, since Melissa didn't arrive yet... we both exchanged sms'es, she told me she would be coming 10 minutes later, so we decided to continue playing some more rounds, until she finally arrived. Finally! Now, it's a
4-Way Rumble Free-For-All Derby!!! lolz
(We all really had fun, crashing each other's cars with lots of force. XD)

After several rounds, Melissa decided to play another game instead (which is GTA: San Andreas)... so did Shaun, so it was very funny as Lawrence and me saw her and Shaun playing this game. lolz

Around 1:30 pm-ish, all of us left the cyber cafe. Shaun left us since he decided to go somewhere with his friend (I think)... Now, it's just Lawrence, me, and Melissa. Actually, Lawrence wanted to drag Melissa along to watch the anime screenings (Lawrence and me are members of the Anime Club) but then Melissa and me are actually hungry so we decided to eat at 'Secret Recipe'. Lawrence decided to go for the anime screenings instead, so he couldn't join Melissa and me for lunch (since I can go for the anime screenings some other time...).

Melissa ordered a spaghetti-style dish (Costs RM 13.50) while I ordered a 'Chicken Lasagna' dish
(Costs RM 13.50). We both ordered mineral water as our drinks but it was very expensive, as it costed RM 2.50 each... =.=

I treated her a slice of cake that's 1 of her favourites, which is 'Yogurt Cheese Cake'. She thanked me for this sweet treat. hehe

Overall, we both enjoyed our meals very much, eventhough I couldn't believe our drinks was so expensive, but I definitely really had an awesome day today, with the company of Melissa and 2 of my college friends... ^^

> 'Chicken Lasagne', with a piece of bread bun on the side. ^^

> 'Chicken Lasagne'. Looks tempting and it smells NICE!!! ^^

> Thanks, Melissa... for taking this picture of me and my delicious meal! ^^

After we had our delicious meals, we then go spend an hour or so in another cyber cafe, since the 'Dotcom 8' cyber cafe was full (and both of us also going home at 4 pm). We surfed our own 'Facebook' pages and played 'GTA: San Andreas'.

After all that, then my 'escort' (who's a friend of me and my mom) arrived around 4 pm-ish, I told my mom (the 'escort' picked her up) since she had no other choice to go home other by walking, my mom agreed to allow our 'escort' to fetch her home 1st (since her house's nearby my college), before fetching us home.

Overall, as mentioned in the 1st sentence of this blog post:
I really had an awesome day today!!! ^^

And, I just want to say thanks to Melissa, Lawrence and Shaun since you guys really made my day Awesome and full of fun! I really hope that we can have do this fun stuff again... hehez ^^

That's all I've to say for now. I'll be updating my blog with more updates soon! See ya!

Double 9.

September 9th, 2008
Happy Birthday, mom!!! :) (I already wished her on that day... ^^)

Well, Sept. 9 was my mom's birthday... so I decided to bring her out to Leisure Mall to celebrate her birthday. After her 1 hour of exercising at 'Fitness First', we then had our dinner at the 'Vietnam Kitchen' food outlet. Me and my mom ordered the same dish, which is
'Parisian Grilled Chicken' dish (Costs RM16.90, comes with 'Red Bubble' drink)... since she wanted to try this delicious dish out. ^^

I'm really happy that she really enjoyed this particular dish so much! ^^

> My mom! I wanna thank you for the help and support that you've provided me since the day I was born!!! ^^

> It seems like you're really enjoying your meal of 'Parisian Grilled Chicken'! ^^

After we had a delightful meal, we then bought some stuff at the supermarket and some mooncakes... hehez

After all that, we then went back home.
The 2 pictures which I took below are the pictures of the 'Mid-Autumn Festival' decorations in Leisure Mall, which looks really wonderful in my opinion. :)

That's all I've to say for now. I'll be updating my blog with more updates soon! See ya!
