A few days ago, one of my online friends brought up the fact that I had gone to Comiket 95 back in December. They were wondering if I may have some tips to Comiket as they will be going for the first time in a few weeks to Comiket 96. I gave some general pointers and reflected a bit on the experience and he told me I should probably write an article about it as it could help his other friends he is traveling with as well. I will also likely write a reflection article regarding the entire trip. Having been a bit busy lately and recently coming back from another trip, I’ve had less time than I would like to write on here.Continue reading
A belated Happy New Year and Happy Lunar New Year! Last year was an exciting event filled year with travels across Canada, the US, Japan, and Hong Kong. We met new friends, went to new places, and even experienced Comiket for the first time.
It is hard to believe it is already a month into 2019. We’ll try to keep the blog more updated this year between events and go back to more regular posts. As usual, we will also list out the events we plan to attend this year and reflect on the previous year.
Montreal has always been one of those places in Canada I have wanted to visit. There’s something about French Canada that is always intriguing for those of us on the West Coast. Maybe it’s the lack of French we experience here in BC or the fact that we’re pretty far from the Eastern provinces. Whatever the reason, Otakuthon was a good reason for me to travel out the Montreal.
As 2017 has now come and gone, there has been a lot going on in the previous year. This year, I’m sure will also be filled with different experiences as well. Wishing everyone a happy new year and may 2018 be filled with many adventures.
Last year was one filled with tons of events and even trips to Japan and Hong Kong. I wonder what the next year will bring. This might be a good time to start planning. Let’s take a look at where this year will lead us.
There is always something about post-con days. Not only are you usually mentally and physically drained, a part of you also feels absent. There’s no better way to describe it other than “Post-con depression.” It can happen to anybody and the quality or even length of the convention is irrelevant. After spending BC Day off to recover, it is time to post some updates.
With February quickly approaching, it is time to lay out some plans for 2017. It has been pretty busy for me lately with juggling a new job with school.
Happy Lunar New Year everyone! I had a great dinner with family and friends. Hope you all had a good one as well. Looking forward to a great 2017.
Recently, it feels like I have been to the same few cities for conventions. It is usually either just the one here in Vancouver in August or down in Seattle. However, a Twitter conversation led to a convention a bit off the radar. Since one of the crew lives in Portland, there were a few idea thrown around to head to Kumoricon 2016. This was the first year it moved to the Convention Center in Downtown Portland. Let’s just say it would be one heck of a weekend.
