At long last, I have moved from blogspot, and onto a better place. ^^;
I owe a big thanks to Netto who so kindly agreed to host me.
Well, without further delay, here's my new address:

Looks like they have some pretty cool prizes for cosplayers to win. As of now, I am unsure if I will be attending this event. Will let you guys know via a twitter update.

With the end of today, we will have reached a new year, 2009. Though it is sad to see another year pass by, I am, overall, pleased with what this year has brought.
A lot of stuff has happened to me in this past year. Sometime February, I decided to make this blog into an otaku/Malaysia blog. Prior to this, I had been blogging about personal matters, and so this was all very new to me.
Initially, I was a "stand-alone" blogger- that is, I never visited other blogs, forums, or even fansites. As you can imagine, I was getting nowhere at that point. One day, while searching for
fapping blogging material, I stumbled across Danny's site, and from there I began networking. I got to know some other bloggers, like Panther, Gordon, Squee X, Fariz Asuka, and, eventually, joined Team Blue.
I would really like to thank both Team Blue and Danny for helping drive traffic to this blog. Also, special thanks to Team Blue (and to Panther, who founded TB), for you guys really helped me grow, both as a blogger and as a person (well, sort of. lol).
I do have to apologize to my readers though. As you might have noticed, in the past three months, the amount of posts I write has decreased significantly. Due to some real life commitments, I have been busy, and any free time I have left is spent trying to catch up on anime, or getting precious and necessary sleep.
Anyway, it's been a great year, and I hope to enjoy more great times with you guys next year.
To close, here's one of my favorite EDs of this year- "Changes" by Base Ball Bear (Toshokan Sensou)
See you 2009! o/

Finally, it's time for day 2 coverage of CF. Having already covered the booths and convention site in my day 1 post, this post focuses on the cosplay aspect of the event
I arrived later on this day, (sometime after noon) because I had some business to attend to in the morning. Upon entering the convention hall, it's straight off to snapping pictures of cosplayers.
Day 2 featured the Solo category cosplay competition. There were tons of contestants- about 55 of them, IIRC.
The crowd on day 2 was much larger than the crowd on day 1.
There were several song performances by some cosplayers. Naturally, Sheryl Nome was one of them.
And strangely, Ranka Lee didn't give a solo performance. :(
Emcees playing some games with the members of the crowd. In this game, you had to be the first to fold the Foldees voucher into an origami paper crane.
After the game ended, it was time to present the awards to the winners of the competitions. Though I did not get pictures of all the award winners, here they are:
Grand Prize: Roden Chong Yii Siang (Roden)
First Prize: Sinn Chun Hou (Sitomize)
Second Prize: ">Fung Kin Chew (Santa Fung)
Grand Prize: Sonia Dai (Pochi)
First Prize: Low Soon Yie (Pyromaniac03)
Second Prize: Ain Hafizah bt Mohd Saadon (Lavendra)
Coffy Award - Sou (Yam Gene Group)
Tea Award - Leong Tze Lin (Noir Mystere Group)
Merchandise Award - Loo Sooyan (Meowed Group)

Honourable Mention: Zend (Nemesis from Resident Evil 3)

After the awards presentation, they had the final performance: "Lion" by Sheryl Nome, Sheryl Nome, Tako, Ranka, and Ranka's mom.

Though CF08 had officially ended, there were still some cosplayers I hadn't gotten photos of, and so I went around and
As I continued to look for cosplayers, a familiar song started playing...
And that ends my coverage of CF08. ^^
This was my first time attending the Comic Fiesta, and I must say, it was a very enjoyable event. To be honest, I had expected fail and such, but it turned out good. Definitely worth the entry fee. XD
