#AFA2017 #C3AFA Part II

Head Hunter by Philippines artist's Luis Esteves 

狂草夜行 (LOIZA個人自選草稿本) By Loiza Chen from Taiwan

#AFA2017 #C3AFA

Cute Harley Quinn by Banpresto.  Already sold out anyway.

This cool transformable Cerevo Dominator seen in anime Psycho-Pass costs a hefty S$1349, including the stand and the solid protector case. Wow!

Artist Rachta Lin
I like her works.  Have collected a few of her illustrations since STGCC 2016.  It is getting better and better.

Loiza.Chen from Taiwan.
Bought his art book 狂草夜行 (LOIZA個人自選草稿本).
His recent work is 陰陽師. But I personally prefer his black and white pencil / charcoal sketches.

Original sketches for Kyoto Animation's Violet Evergreen (ヴァイオレット・エヴァーガーデン) which will be screening on Netflix next year. Can't wait.

A look of what we bought.  All these costed me S$465 liao 😭


The truffle rice and Nissin's UFO fried ramen are yummy.

May be the generation gap, I can't fathom myself watching TV
all days and nights when I reach her age.  Seriously.

The Quantum Spy by David Ignatius
The Burnings by Julian Lees
The Burnings is a crime series set in Jakarta, featuring inspektur Ruud Pujasmarta.
When Australian Jillian Parker's scorched remains are discovered in her burnt-out car Ruud Pujasumarta and his team are brought in to investigate what appears at first to be a routine homicide. But when Canadian citizen Anita Dalloway's charred body is found a few days later Ruud finds a banner unfurled by the corpse's feet. A verse from the Quran is scribbled across it, calling for unbelievers to be burned. The killer is targeting Christians. And the team's suspicions are confirmed when a third body, that of English backpacker Emily Grealish, turns up with the same M.O. But who is responsible? Is it the senior Australian diplomat from the embassy who was obsessed by the first victim? The Imam who preaches Sharia law? The Indonesian three-star military general taking backhanders and living a life of luxury in Jakarta? Or the local drug dealer with a score to settle? But Ruud is suspicious that the killer may be someone much closer to home, someone Ruud has trusted for many years. What unravels is a terrifying chain of events for Ruud. And what he discovers puts his and those around him lives in danger.
The story is thrilling, but I like it even more as the author also educates us about Jakarta, Indonesia especially the interesting street foods here and there.

After Dan brown's Origin, The Quantum Spy is another thriller relating to the hyper-fast Quantum Computing.

Since both books also mention D-Wave, it must be very impressive.  A leading edge cyber security firm has purchased the latest D-Wave 2000Q system and integrated with its own technology to solve critical and complex cyber security problems impacting governments and commercial enterprises. Hmmm ...... it does pique my curiosity.

Bangkok Jam @PlazaSing


Been craving for the chicken green curry for a while. 

Last night, we also had mixed grill set (chicken, squid, lobster), soft shell crabs with yellow curry, and pineapple rice.

Yum yum.
