Foods for Thought

Roast Kurobuta Pork @ DoubleBay Restaurant & Bar, Raffles City
Sinfully delicious cupcakes from Dessert.Cup



Who can say no to all these yummy-looking foods ? If I put on weight bcoz of these irresistible indulgences, I'll definitely put my blame on my fellow colleague K who brought me there in the first place. Wahahaha :-)

AnimeFestival

Went to Anime Festival Asia with my incredible and colleague last Sunday (14 Nov). No concert for us though, as we're not familiar with the anisongs, plus the ticket wasn't cheap. Besides the main program - Cosplay Championship, the thing that really catched my eyes are those fantastic illustrations displayed around.



By Wanchana Intrasombat from Thailand

By Jessada Sutthi from Thailand

The works of artist Skan Srisuwan, also from Thailand, are as good. Pity that I got no photo to show.

One more artist worth mentioning is KiDChan from Malaysia, a small build and very shy girl. Her works are gorgeous, and 'lustful'. I bought her black and white rough ilustration book Pallidity Monolity which includes Naruto doujinshi. Imagine Sasake and Naruto are lovers ...... gosh.


The other highlight for me is the figma figurines from popular manga Fate/Stay Night. My most favorite character is Saber. She is a loyal, independent and powerful warrior who serves Emiya Shirou 衛宮士郎.


I also found 2 nicely crafted figurines of Clare from Claymore, another favorite character of mine. "Number 47 in the organization, Clare, successor of Teresa flesh and blood, bearer of Irene's right arm and the one who carries Ophelia's hopes and soul to hunt the awakened being Priscilla." Isn't she cool ?

Pity that I didn't buy any of the figurines. I simply don't have space to display them. Alas.

On Reading


My recent read is The Bookseller of Kabul, a non-fiction book written by Norwegian journalist Åsne Seierstad, about a bookseller, Shah Muhammad Rais (aka Sultan Khan), and his family in Kabul, Afghanistan. Not so much on the book trade itself, the book is more on the daily issues the characters face. Besides giving the historical account of events in Afghanistan, she also focuses on the conditions of Afghan women who still live very much under the domination of men, which sucks. Anyway, I still got one-third to go.
