Event: Animax Ani-Mates Meet & Greet with Alodia and Ashley
Country: Singapore
Venue:  Scape, Camp Pong
Date: 2 July 2010
Time: 3.30pm to 6pm

Not known to many, I attended the Animax Ani-mates Meet & Greet Session with Alodia and Ashley which was held in Singapore.

Most of the photos are taken from Alodia’s facebook as the ones I took are blurry. In fact, I am not even good in taking photos in the place. Sorry about it.

The event was held in Scape, Camp Pong. A place where you can drink beers, beverages and play ping pong at the same time ^^

Each of us was given a goodies bag by Animax. Let’s take a look what’s inside. An Animax T-Shirt, Animax key chain, a poster of Alodia & Ashley and a Iphone… I mean an Animax Iphone cover XD

Around 30 fans showed up. Unfortunately, the event was held on a Friday’s afternoon where most people would still be working or schooling. Even I had to specially took half day leave from work in order to attend it. If not, with their popularity, it won’t be suprising to see more than a hundred fans turning up.

After a long wait, the meet & greet session finally started!! Gregory Ho, Vice President & General Manager of Animax Asia gave a short opening speech and introduced some of the upcoming anime that will be shown on Animax.

Beside popular series like K-ON!!, Fairy Tail, Hayate the combat butler S2, Kuroshitsuji S2,  Animax will also be showing Nurarihyon no Mago which was just released in Japan!!

Alodia cosplaying as Sakurada Miwako and Ashley as  Hayasaka Yukari (Caroline) from Paradise Kiss.

Our kawaii emcee in the middle, Ferlyn Yoshimi. Ferlyn is not only a member of the current girl group, MYnT, she is also the young boss of Coscafe (Maid Cafe) in CHIJMES and Singapore representative for World Cosplay Summit 2006.

A short video which I took for the Q&A session with Alodia and Ashley.

Once again, make a guess what is the first question from the fans? Yes, it is “Do you have a boyfriend” again. Everyone just like to ask them this question ^^

When Ashley said”No”, the guy behind was  shouting “GREAT!!!!!”  =.=”

Alodia gave her usual “No comment” though ^^

A lucky fan was selected to play ping pong with Alodia and Ashley. Fortunate guy. How often you do even get to play ping pong with them in the first place?

Anyway, the match was pretty one sided because regardless how Alodia and Ashley committed a foul, the ball will always be counted. But, if the fan scored against them, he got a bashing from us. Still need me to tell you who won in the end? :p

Next up is photography session with Alodia and Ashley.

This is the fan who won an Itouch in the lucky draw sponsored by Animax. She came together with her 2 little sisters and they are also the youngest among us.

We started queueing up for their autograph after that. Everytime I see news about Alodia and Ashley holding an autography session in Philippines, I will be like “ARGHHH” and wish I could fly over.

Now I am a hapy man 😀

I also managed to get them sign my Otacool 2 ^.^V

And that concluded the whole event.
