Anime Festival Asia 2009 – Items Acquired!

Well here is all the loot I acquired from the Anime Festival Asia 2009. The list ranges from figmas, to regular figurines, name cards and assorted brochures. Since the figma Saber Lily was the last one in stock, it was missing the PSP game (which I already have). I got the figma cheaper so I was happy with that.


I’m very happy with the Shana wall scroll. My walls don’t look so plain now. Hopefully I’ll be able to get more in the near future.


As you can see, there is a huge pile of paper type goods. I’m sure most of you who went to the festival managed to pick up the same stuff as I did.

Had a fun photo session with a simple floor base and themed backdrop for a good hour or so. Very exciting. The detail and craftsmanship of both figures is astounding.



Nendoroid Saber Lily decides to interrupt and join in on the photo session.




I was happy with my loot that I bagged. Especially the 2 Saber figures. That will save me the trouble of searching Ebay and on delivery costs.


Anime Festival Asia 2009 (AFA09)

A fan of Japanese animations and pop culture? Wondering where to go this weekend for yourself or with kids? Check this out!


The mega festival “Anime Festival Asia 2009 (AFA09)” is now on at Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Centre (Halls 403 and 404) from 21st to 22nd November and yes in Singapore! Featuring live concerts by Japan’s top music performers, special appearance by Asian Top Blogger (Danny Choo), anime screening, exhibits, fashion show, and regional cosplay championship.

Not forgetting the special attraction for my kids —- Kids Land.  Over here, kids above 4 years old can learn about making of sushi, dumplings, sandwiches, and more…….and get the chance to assemble model kits at Bandai’s Gundam Caravan. Oh yes, also hopefully they get to see more of their favourite Pokemons…and other wide range like Ben 10.  So….as we make our way there over this weekend, we understand that the event is targetting 50,000 local and overseas visitors.  I believe my boys and their father will be very excited despite the expected big crowd. <Living in a world of 3 males at home, mommy will have to “play along”, “tag along”, “adapt to boys’ interests”, “enjoy or at least appreciate” what they enjoy. But frankly, I do like all these animations:)>

So do check out the festival and ticketing details at  Refer to this copy of the event schedule extracted from the official site.
