Tis a busy day today with back to back activities from lunch time till night .. all that for a well deserved break on Sunday!
First up, a dimsum lunch with my mom and aunts at Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant located at Carlton Hotel Singapore. It was a nice catch up and trying out all the yummy dim sum there, appreciating the treat as well! Reservations in advance highly recommended as they are super popular with two seatings available for lunch.
Next up, a few errands to run with my mom before heading over to Suntec City Convention Center to visit Anime Festival Asia (AFA 2023)! We were super lucky to be able to skip the queue as invited media for SG Lifestyle and head up all the way to check out the Crunchyroll’s booth within the exhibition hall.
We also got VIP access (aka queue cutting lol) to experience the JUJUTSU KAISEN experience located at their booth, a 3 min experience inside a domain expansion skill, before heading out to snap photos at their free photo booth! We also got some free Crunchyroll merchandise which was really nice!
Crunchyroll is also the main sponsor the AKIBA Stage located behind their booth where you can watch a slew of performances line up the entire day. Beyond that, you also get to see/meet many cosplayers/creators, shop for official/fan made anime/manga related merchandise & products and even have a bite at the Japanese food street located within the hall itself!
The crowd inside was really packed, showcasing the strength of the anime/manga backed community in Singapore with cosplayers, otakus, and fans alike! Note that this is a ticketed event but yet, it is so crowded which showcases the success of this major event; the dream come true for event organizers when you see the sheer numbers and the crowd.
There were also so many fun collabs and free stuff to redeem. We had fun checking them out and redeeming things too. The cosplayers were also out in full force and there were ALOT of them! The mister also snapped photos/took a selfie of any One Piece cosplayer he saw at the event and I wasn’t joking how popular it was! There were also many common anime/manga/game cosplayers; while some were rarer. Still, it was a nice experience to be able to visit AFA 2023! Thanks Crunchyroll and AFA once again for the invitation:)
To end off the night, it’s time for dinner at Tonkatsu ENbiton to try new food to round off this whole Japanese experience after AFA 2023. Fun:)
