Singapore Toys, Games & Comics Convention Flashback!

This is a flashback post. The STGCC was on 2008 in June, this year, it’s on in August. You can check details on their website. I’ll be there on Saturday and Sunday.

Heh, if you ever wanted to say hello to me, I’ll be at the Movie Mania booth from 9am-12pm on Sunday (16th August) since I’m helping them out a bit.

Also, you guys can check more about costuming and making props there! Seriously, it’s one booth that you might want to check out! Feel free to pose with the costumers and such there too.

Oh and if you’re around on Saturday afternoon, PLEASE, please vote for Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy during the cosplay competition.


Let’s get onwards to our flashback episode!

Kao Laurier F

This is a random post on what I got for free on their website because I’m getting more details of a book launch in this coming August 9th! So that one will be the next post after this in the week.


Ho ho, so I filled out the survey form on the Kao Laurier F website for fun to see if there was still stock and if they’d send it to me.

Dream Walker: The Dreamscape


I bought Dream Walker: The Dreamscape during Cosfest VIII. Well, it’s actually available in major bookstores (yes! Popular has it!) and online but I bought it at Cosfest especially because I wanted my copy autographed at the Comix Pandora booth along with the free postcard for that day too!

So how’s the story?

Harry Potter Gala Premiere

WARNING: This isn’t a really spoilerific post for the movie. I ain’t telling what’s happening that isn’t in the trailers.

The gala premiere for Singapore was on the 15th July, Shaw Lido at around 7.30pm in the evening. Of course I arrived much earlier for it to check out the location.

Oooh, they definitely are reserving all the movie theaters just for this gala premiere.

Yes, it was totally official and all.

Cosfest VIII (2009)

Cosfest VIII was held at Downtown East, Pasir Ris on the 11th and 12th of July from 1pm till 7pm. Of course in reality people went much earlier and left much later than the official times. It was held at D’Marquee.


A dome like thing but pretty much once you’re at Downtown East, if you get lost, just find the costumed people and you will pretty much reach the correct location.

Singapore Writers Festival is LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS! Check this page out to know more on how to get into it. I’m not volunteering since it’s rather difficult to do so when some of us are already part of it. If you have some free time, do it! It’s a good opportunity to get close to invited writers!

In the previous one, I got my friend who owns a comic store to contact them and he brought around Gail Simone and Kurt Busiek around Singapore, LIKE GASP!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I think it’ll be a horrid, horrid idea if I ever were to volunteer since I’d go “OMG GAAAAAASP, IT IS YOUUUUUUU. I LIKESSS YOUR WRITINGS, I DO!” etc etc. So no, I’m sure everyone else will be much calmer and proper.

Do help out or spread the message to your friends if they’re interested!

TGX 09 (aka The Games Xpo)


This is a random courtesy lion. This time he’s wearing a mask to prevent H1N1. That’s nice of him. Oh for non-locals, he’s kinda like the mascot to be uh, courteous and all.

But let’s get back to business!

TGX 09 is The Games Xpo! I have no idea why they spelled expo as Xpo but whatever. It’s “cool” to do so, I guess.


This isn’t the TGX but it’s just an amusing ad at The Strip in Suntec, some waxing place. It was on the way to the convention halls there anyway. But yeah, Suntec. I was there to see more of the cosplaying segments and this was on the 4th of July. That was day one and day two was more of the championships. I didn’t go for that one.
