Japan Trip 2012 Day 2: Harajuku and Ikebukuro (Swallowtail Visit 1)

Hi guys, I’m really sick now. Sore throat, and potentially a flu or cold or something. I’m sneezing nonstop, and cue running nose. My eyes feel very hot. This is where I whine that I can’t get free strepsils and medication (delivered to my room) from my dad anymore LOL.

On to the long winded blabbering entry! I’m typing this in a very sick mood, so I might start typing nonsense, or simplifying things a lot. I trust that I will go into much greater detail when talking about this IRL, but for now bear with my entry.

And ya, you read the title right, we eventually went Swallowtail twice.

Mikupa @ I<3Anisong AFA

After the concert

After the concert

Attended Mikupa, the first ever proper Mikupa for Singapore! (and my first live concert ever, excluding the Grasshoppers one my parents took me when I was a baby)

It’s quite a funny story, really. Jasmine and I are not really huge fans of the vocaloid characters. It’s more like we’re interested in the producers (and their songs), and some of the amateur singers who cover vocaloid songs. On top of that, we don’t have much confidence in knowing a lot of vocaloid songs. Technically, this means we should be satisfied with just the songs in our mp3 player, and will not need to spend $48 for a stand-in ticket for this.

But when we heard about it anyways, we went ahead and purchased VIP tickets orz.

I said that it won’t hurt to splurge on a live and attend it in comfort anyways. Plus we never attend lives, so it’s not too bad spending more for this, right? And since this is a hologram, it’s really pointless if we can’t see it.

But our main reason was because we don’t want to get killed by body odour for two hours =x

STGCC 2011 and Horse Riding Lesson #6

Attended STGCC with Alanna and Ivory yesterday! And met up with Jasmine (get well soon!) and Shu for breakfast and dinner respectively. Couldn’t meet up with a lot of the Sparklies, but it’s okay! There are always other opportunities to meet up.

Perhaps because it’s really not what I’m interested in, but we sort of breezed through the whole thing in less than half an hour. If it was catered more to the Japanese market, and probably dolls and stuff, it might have been a lot more fun for me. This time it seems to focus a lot more on what a lot of people like to label as “Western toys and comics” like Marvel etc., and all the storm troopers and random collectibles. The area for animation and design seemed to have expanded a lot more definitely, which is always fun to look at.

I did look forward to Kishida Mel’s spotlight session 8) I’m very very attracted to his style of drawing and colouring, enough to want an autograph from him. I was hoping that I could catch his autograph session, but I realised that I would totally miss it because it’s held at 11AM-12PM, so there went the only thing I was looking forward to LOL. I didn’t really think I would be interested in a talk session, but surprisingly 1 hour flew by really fast~

And to go off topic, he’s really tall. And he’s got a decently cute face. Not ikemen ikemen, but you know, cute. And though common, I enjoyed his voice and his way of speaking and how honestly frank he was when he said he did so and so because it’s his job (for a commission). And he was an actor~ Sense this mini fangirling moment of mine that has got nothing to do with his art. And he likes Oshimizu Nako the most because of her braids hohohoho. COSPLAY?! HAHAHA.

He has another autograph session on Sunday 4PM-5PM, and I did consider going, but I told myself I shall let “Fate” decide for me. Should I be able to get a copy of Atelier Totori/Rorona’s artbook from Kino, I’ll rush for the autograph session. Alas, I checked the Kino site – no copies left LOL.

After 4 weeks of waiting, we finally got the chance to resume our horse riding lessons.

I know I’ll do very badly during lessons by jumbling up with my hands and basically failing at dealing with the whole saddle, so I was prepared to get skinned by the instructor. I’m glad I mentally prepared myself for it, because if I didn’t, I probably would waste the whole lesson away by giving up. I’m proud of myself for not shriveling up with every blow dealt.
