Comic Fiesta 2017 at KLCC Recap!

Hi, the group went to Comic Fiesta at KLCC in 2017! It’s been a while since CF was back to KLCC so we were excited to go since it’s so easy to get there from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by bus and stay at Trader’s hotel which is above the convention centre.

And also because I could eat Halal food like Din’s since that’s not available in Singapore.

If you wanted a tl;dr version of Comic Fiesta 2017, you can watch the video above! It was an exciting weekend that I had to split it into three posts. This one is going to be a combined 2 days of CF post.

Noods & Meats

Noods & Meats : Smokehouse by Firdauz Nasir is at BLK 414, Yishun Ring Road, #01-1871, Singapore 760414.

It’s just a feeder bus away from Yishun interchange. If you’re looking for the shop, it’s not some fancy restaurant but is in a neighbourhood coffeeshop.

It’s not ‘certified Halal’ but it’s Muslim owned. When I went, it was late afternoon in their first week or so of opening.

SAD FOR ME because since I went late afternoon, most of their main meats were not available except for the platter sharing ones and those are huge

Singapore to Kuala Lumpur Bus trip!

Our trip for Comic Fiesta 2017 has too many pictures and exciting things that I decided to just separate it into different posts. This is for travelling from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur via bus aka coach.

Our choice company has always been Aeroline since it stops at Corus Hotel which is just a walk away from KLCC and thus in total around fifteen to twenty minutes walk to Trader’s Hotel.

Anyway, Aeroline always provides one meal on board including a hot drink, a bottle of water and the seats are way comfortable and the service is great.

It also has an on board entertainment with some movies, music and games (it’s funner if you ask your friends to join in on the system instead of versus-ing the computer).

That’s a freaking giant cream crackers ad. I was amused.

If you haven’t used Aeroline before, the pick up is at Harbourfront centre at the carpark for coaches.

From there we drive off to Tuas checkpoint, get our passports scanned (first on the Singapore side) and then stamped at the Malaysian side.

At the Malaysian side, you have to take out all your luggage and put it in the x-ray scanner then after all that, reload it back into the bus and you’re on your way to Kuala Lumpur!

Din by Din Tai Fung (Halal) at KLCC

(Click to enlarge the pics as always)

Is Din by Din Tai Fung, Halal? Yes it is. Where is it? The one I went to is at level 4, lot 417 at Suria KLCC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I think that’s basically what you guys wanted to know. There’s alcohol in the beverages part of the menu but like many restaurants there, the food is halal while the drinks are separate.

Perspectives with Kelly Marie Tran & Norman Tan

On 26 November 2017, Apple at Orchard Road (Apple Orchard, really…) hosted a special event called Perspectives with Kelly Marie Tran & Norman Tan!

As readers of my blog would possibly know who Kelly is since a bunch of you guys are nerds like me, you would know her as Rose Tico from Star Wars in the upcoming The Last Jedi. Norman Tan is the moderator and he’s the Editor-in-Chief of Buro 24/7. He’s a really good moderator and the whole event was pretty smooth.

It started a with a screening of the trailer (some people screamed No if you listened properly because I know they were trying to avoid seeing anything until the movie appeared) and a secret behind the scenes segment starring Kelly Marie Tran. Maybe it’ll be put in the main BTS of The Last Jedi but from what we saw, it was kind of touching also? To at least know how she ended up in the role.

Trailer over, some of Singapore’s 501st marched in to stand to the side to welcome her.

The Phantom of Oxley Castle review

 

Firstly, I pre-ordered (?) well not really pre-order since it was in Local Books website, they just had to deliver it to me once it was released. This is the first time I bought from them online so yeah.

I want to say this is pretty exciting. RECEIVING BOOKS (that I paid for) that is. The packaging is bright purple in real life and it’s super cheery.

I might buy more books this way just cause of the packaging cause it’s cute for specific hard to find titles in store. You guys should try it with Harris Bin Potter.

Oh and prices on that website haven’t added gst in. I would have wanted a “GST included” price, so no cheated feelings or something at the cart.

I chose for the free gift wrapping because November is a book day for a lot of reasons and the wrapping is pretty good. Hit that “gift wrapping” button if you are definitely gifting it to a friend, whoever is the wrapper, it is veeeery nice.

Oh and we get a tiny “Word Search” puzzle card which is a promo of some books available on their site.

You can click to embiggen to look see the other side of that word search puzzle. Anyway, I unwrapped it and BEHOLD.

It is The Phantom of Oxley Castle by Liana Gurung and Chloe Tong, illustrated by Anngee Neo.

My review is going to be as a book reader and not some political website trying to find hints and meaning more than me when watching the latest Taylor Swift video.

PAX Australia 2017

PAX Australia was at the Melbourne Convention Centre and it’s so easy to get to from the airport.

Basically I took a Skybus to the city and from there you could either take a city hotel shuttle or pretty much just walk.

Anyway this was my first ever PAX! So yay.

It ran for three days and it’s purely a gaming convention with panels, competitions and well, gaming.

It’s very exciting if you like games, really. Also, the cosplay scene is much more ‘chill’ compared to Singapore but the gaming scene is more intense because this is like THE gaming convention event of the year.

From digital to analogue, it was pretty much play time or get gear for your gaming.
