Just a few hours ago, I was at a mini-gathering with the members of Singapore Anime Bloggers (SGAB). That evening, many otakus from different walks of life gathered together in Kado man, a small Japanese restaurant at Grand Plaza Hotel.
This gathering marks the first anniversary of SGAB, which started off a year ago with just a few members, to now a nice growing number of 60+.
The core members of SGAB had a private room of their own so they could do their own thing inside while the rest of us shenanigans were seated outside. I was late for the gathering due to matters to be settled earlier so I got a seat outside ^^;
Was seated beside the guy with the laughing man. He kindly requested his face to be ‘Laughing manned”.
Had elbow macaroni Salad and Salmon set which was very worth the money. Came to a total of 24.50SGD but I was very happy with it.
Besides eating and chatting, the otakus also shared some of their goods brought back from the recent Comiket (C73).
Pictures below are of Kantoku’s C73 release. Awesome stuff and lots cutesy girls. Me wants!
And not forgetting the group photos.
