Anime Festival Asia ... ^_^ except that it was also manga, games and

...I try to entice you to come and take a look with a pretty bow. ^)~

A warning though. Lots of pictures so it may take a while. Have shrunk them in file size, so I hope it helps somewhat.

Another warning. Not captioned, because it is late and I'm too sleepy to really do anything about it for now. They are just random pictures, of random people, my children, my children and my children ... oh did I say my children? They are so cute so ... *pout* there!

Not that one always had to do with the other.

I apologise for the poor quality of the photographs as I only had my camera phone.

Thank you everyone who helped, participated, supported and loved us, even if we are annoying, frustrating and general nuisances. Most of all my wonderful long suffering hubby, who is just ... amazing. He carried bags, he looked after bags, he looked after children, he waited here, there and everywhere for us. My children who are amazing sports, just awesome to go along with their mama's crazy ideas and schemes.

I am more than blessed, always and truly.

There were a fair few folk who wandered in by mistake on their way to an Electrical Appliances Fair held in adjoining Exhibition halls at the Suntec Convention Center. I keep thinking that they must think that they have entered some kind of interdimensional paralel universe where nothing is normal.

Well on to the pictures ...

The shopping malls remind us that Christmas is round the corner folks!

Blessings, love and hugs to my wonderful and amazingly wonderous f-list.

Will keep this post unlocked for a time so those who want to look can do so.

It was.
You're more than welcome

.... and just think you could have gone home with more than just fangoods ... perhaps a vacuum cleaner or a fan or something ... ^_~

... and ... and YOU call me an insomniac?

Go sleep girl! *hugs*

Thank you, Thank you and ...oooh THANK YOU! Really? HUbby said I looked good, but you know hubby is supposed to say that. So yes thank you.

And yeah we plotted and found a willing partner in crime for Kou-sama and Doku!

It was so much fun.

Oh, wow! Are you cosplaying Yaone?! You are so awesome. Awesome, awesome mom. Your kids are cute. XD Never thought I'd say that about children. *HUGS*

Yes it was Yaone. I could do with thinner thighs though. ^_~ Thank you. I'm glad I was recognizable as her! Otherwise it would have been complete cosfail!

Awww I love my f-list because you all just love my children too much. Even the self confessed child dislikers. *grins and HUGS*

Awesome pictures, Zan! The costumes look great in action! Musta been tons of fun!! :D :D

Thanks dear. I'm sorry my camera isn't a better one, and I wish I had a decent enough of one to be able to take photos of other folks. It was all I could do to keep track of myself and the chidlren while leaving myself odd moments to check out merchandise and other vendors.

It was cool but oooh so many people, it was very very scary in some places.

*HUGS* hope your weekend was good.

[identity profile] lockability.livejournal.com 2011-11-14 04:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I wouldn't've guessed it was a camera phone if you hadn't said it! The pictures look pretty good to me!

Oooh hectic but fun! It's nice to have days like that too!

*GLOMPS!!* My weekend was uneventful but good :>

Awww you! Are too sweet. ^_^ We had fun. And OMG there were so many people. I think I was not prepared for that at all. Just SO MANY PEOPLE!!! Credit to the children, they bore it all with great fortitude and patience. I have awesome children. I'm so very fortunate.

Wow ! Such amazing pictures of your beautiful children !!!

[identity profile] i-am-zan.livejournal.com 2011-11-14 01:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you. It is easy to take amazing pictures of them, even with a lousy camera. ^_^

Because they just are. Once again thank you.

[identity profile] befanini.livejournal.com 2011-11-14 12:58 pm (UTC)(link)
You make the sweetest Yaone there ever was ♥
And your girl is a natural!

[identity profile] i-am-zan.livejournal.com 2011-11-14 01:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Aawwww ... you're too sweet. Thank you.

And I know, she is isn't she. She's just so darned cute.

And the boy was so determined to stay in character, he frowned all the time.
Like so:

I said to him that it was ok to smile now and again. But then again Google images can only find this image that was one he frowned in (apologies for the rather large picture. Like I said it was the only one I could find him frowning in) . So yeah I wished he smiled a little more. And silly me I didn't take a family picture. Gah! ^_^

[identity profile] befanini.livejournal.com 2011-11-15 03:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Hee, he was definitely in character too. ♥ I'm still in semi-hibernation, I got hungry and poked my head out of the cave for a wee bit. ;)

どういたしまして -

I am glad you like him! I thought that some on my f-list might. Thank YOU!

How are you dear? Are you taking the exam in Dec? If you are then "頑張って !"

Oh, I remember the ridiculous Christmas lights in the malls.

And while I don't recognise a single character it's clear that you're all having tonnes of fun! Well.. Steven looks a little tired, but oh well. :) HUGS!

Hubby was wonderful and yes that was the end of the day and he was tired. We'd been out for 8 hours, and time just flew by.

[identity profile] hanzan.livejournal.com 2011-11-14 09:14 pm (UTC)(link)
He's such a trooper. :)

[identity profile] flange5.livejournal.com 2011-11-15 03:48 am (UTC)(link)

You and your family make me so damn happy&hearts It looks like you had a great time! And it's awesome to see other Saiyuki cosplayers showed up, too!


Oh, Zan. I had coffee with dinner. I may never sleep. I'm going to go try to sort out my nail polishes and see if that does the trick ^^;

I hope the visit has begun well and that you're not too overwhelmed&hearts

[identity profile] i-am-zan.livejournal.com 2011-11-15 05:19 am (UTC)(link)

The long anticipated post! You make a gorgeous Yaone. The kids rock their costumes, too. Hee, I love how in-character they both are. And Doku and Kou! That's awesome that you managed to get all four together in your group.

Oh my gosh, that pic of D. and S. standing against the wall together. Mischief just waiting to happen. ^_~

[identity profile] attiqah-gensui.livejournal.com 2011-11-15 04:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Love the pics! I'm still scouring the cafe and facebook for more pics. I only got one non-blurry/semi-okay pic from my phone so far. ;A;

We should cos as the Kou-tachi again! My friend Invinc said that he had actually planned to come as Ukouku on Sunday but changed his mind at the last minute, then regretted it when I told him we had a group. XD
