COMIC FESTA 2006
Thanks Brian , or else it would be waiting forever for my cousin to pass the pics . Because with that , I was going to write my review . Here goes ... (multi parts)
Comic Festa as the local convention for Anime , Manga and such is held over a weekend during the month long school holidays in Dec . So being semi-permanently back , I decided to take a trip down to investigate it ...
There isn't a fixed venue to which the convention can rely on year after year like most places . So this year the location was in the assembly hall of a private school .
Problem 1 , Malaysian planners are dumb people ... and so was the organizing committee . The school was in an obscure location smack in the middle of an industrial estate . Honestly it wasn't hard to find . Sadly as much as I was curious I then didn't want to find it .
Cost for ticket RM8 (one day) ... in Oz terms ~$3.50 . Dirt cheap yeah ? Well , this is what I could scan assess and understand the value of that RM8 ... ready ...
Entry tix with event title and stamp mark (like clubs)
T-shirt for extra cost
No program book
Heck not even anything useful !
This is the first Con I've been , of course its been held previously and its popularity keeps on growing . Having come from AVCON which despite its flaws I can congratulate its serious efforts to at least keep people occupied with various events .
I came in at 3.30 ; alot later than I thought and by my own transport (a Hyundai) ...
Time I left 4.30 .
(con't next post)
I must feel proud about the things I choose ...,
Be it Ero-games , doujinshi , or clothes ; its all the SAME !
