[Amaya Travels] Fancy Frontier (FF27) 2016

Attended my first (and only) overseas event for this year~! I have always loved Taiwan, so it was easy to decide to attend an event here since there are so many more things to do other than the event itself~


Location of the event! A distance away from the city centre, but Taipei has efficient transportation!


A farmers market (?) was on at the same time outside.



Was quite surprised to receive a magazine as my ticket xD It contains a lot of information, including booth information and schedules. Of course, the information is subject to changes depending on the actual day progress. A pretty useful book to have while queuing to enter on Day 1 XD



Didn't manage to take too many photos as it was really quite crowded, and I spent majority of my time just hanging out with friends I knew XD






There was a cosplay competition on the second day~





It was winter time in Taipei, and was really cool for Lolita~!


With the lovely Angie from Malaysia~!

The Sunday Currently, Volume Thirty Two



CURRENTLY...

PLANNING... out my finances! It is never too late to start thinking about money xD Thinking about investments, passive incomes and setting up funds for further education~

LISTENING... to Makino Yui~ She's been in the industry for some time, and her gentle vocals are really soothing to listen to!


WATCHING... LinandKo's gameplays for the new Harvest Moon game: Story of Seasons - Trio of Towns! I can't wait till the game is translated and released in Singapore! The competition structure seems really different and interesting!



BUYING... a yukata and obi from Rakuten~! I was really lucky to get a hand-me-down from V, but I decided to get a design which I really like. #retailtherapy

DOWNLOADING... the Maplestory SEA client. It is frustrating that the automatic and manual patches do not work on my computer. Every time there is a new patch, I have to download the entire game client again. Thank goodness I have efficient Internet ೕ(˃̵ᴗ˂̵ ๑)

DISLIKING... evangelists. Had a rather memorable experience with one while waiting for my pick-up. He was rather contradictory about certain things, but the breaking point was when he said that another religious figure was simply a figment created by his own God. How rude can someone get.

WANTING... to get some card paper stock to DIY a pocket for my dotted notebook. This way I can keep some stickers and postcards along with it, without carrying too many folders.

GEARING... up for the busy work period that is to come! I've taken some extra duties, and aim to do them well so that it will ease certain work processes in future.

FINISHING... up most of my shopping, with some remaining items that will need another one/two trips down to the physical store(s). Good way to start off the second half of the year feeling refreshed in some ways!

COVETING... a few new electronic gadgets, including a wireless printer for home use! The PIXMA MG3670 is also good for photo printing, so I might put the portable photo printer on hold for a bit.

LOOKING... out for a new lens to add to the basic lens that I got with my Olympus camera! Gotta make full use of the capability for interchangeable lens!

The Sunday Currently, Volume Thirty One




Likely the last post to end the first half of the calendar year~ It has been a rather good first half of 2016, and the second half is likely to get busier and tougher! But I will brave through this with the Japan trip in heart and mind~

CURRENTLY...

BORROWING... some books on photography to pick up some basic knowledge~! Being good/better at the things I like to do, makes me happy and fulfilled. ^^

LEARNING... how to do basic hand lettering with Abbey Sy yesterday, when she held a workshop in Singapore! It is tough work, especially when I am not a very creative person XD It was a fun workshop!

LISTENING... to the sound track of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress! Finally picked up on this anime after updating myself with Macross Delta. Hiroyuki Sawano never fails to impress :D


WISHING... for recognition in the coming month, and strength to deal with the workload that is to come.

ANTICIPATING... the new ABRSM syllabus! It is slated to come out early July, and then we'll get the books. I really hope that I will be able to manage the pieces within 8 months.

BELIEVING... (and have always believed) that effort will never betray you. You may have wasted efforts by going down a longer path, but there will always be something to show for it.

BUYING... stickers and tapes to complement my bullet journal! #Hobonichi with me series by Rainbowholic is very inspirational and educational~
