    Day 2

    Reached the Singapore Flyer at around 1. There are not many people yet so I took lunch there with some of my buddies...

    The ramen was seriously GOOD! The broth was a little oily though. Not to mention, its price was quite "hua suan" (value-for-money). Best of all, proceeds will go to help Japan in their earthquake recovery.

    Apparently, the ramen is sold by this restaurant, do pay them a visit if you enjoy their ramen!

    I then attended the Cosplay Semi-finals. It was good, but the problem was I did not take any photos of it T_T! I did take some cosplay photos at the end of the day though.

    Day 3 (Cosplay Competition Finals)
    I went straight to the Greek Theatre once I reached the Singapore Flyer for the Cosplay Competition Finals. Each contestant has to perform a skit/song related to the character that they are portraying as. I must say that everyone has put up a good show, so a big thank you goes to all contestants and judges!







    Aside from getting prizes for the best performances, there is also the "Niki" (Popularity) contest too. The audience is to donate money to the contestants (all of which will go to Japan). The contestant who receives the most will win the contest.

    Disclaimer: The "darkness" in the photo has nothing to do with the cosplayer.


    Bad Kaito gets the CHOKE!


    Money awating to be counted for the "Niki" (Popularity) segment of the competition

    Wait! There are more photos of the competition here!

    Day 3 (Eating Competition)
    Right after the Cosplay Finals, the Eating Competition began. For the first round, contestants are required to finish whatever that was in their bowls (was revealed to be biscuits later on) and don their aprons. Only the fastest 10 contestants can continue on to the actual challenge.





    The actual challenge was to finish as many bowls of soba (cold noodles) as possible. If the contestant cannot eat anymore, he/she has to remove their apron.


    HERE COMES THE (actual) CHALLENGER!

    Here's the clincher: All our contestants ate so much that they ran out of soba! The emcee had to stop everybody while they refill the soba.







    More pictures of the competition can be seen here!

    Alright, see you all around at the next event soon! Hope you all have enjoyed the event and my coverage!

    Hmm... I think I forgotten to post one more thing...


    Looks like I remembered what to post liao, hold on...

    Omake!
    Hmm... Finally remembered what I missed out... None other than our dear emcee!

    Kinda reminds me of T****y though =X




    He sure does his emcee job well (and have good poses)


    But is scared of big weapons.


    And we love (somewhat) his suspenders!

    View more pictures of our beloved emcee here!

    Alright, see you all around at the next event soon! Hope you all have enjoyed the event and my coverage!

    Well, it's another way of saying that my photography skills is the cause of the photo being unusually dark (possibly underexposed?) rather than the cosplayer himself. (If i do recall correctly, the character being cosplayed is a "somewhat good, somewhat evil" guy from Bleach)

    Sorry if that pun was bad... =(
