I Love Anisong 2014 lineup looks good but I can’t go…noooooooo

Standard

NOTE TO SELF:  I should never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, NEVER, EVER, check out the I Love Anisong lineup if I wasn’t planning on going.

I AM NOW FILLED WITH SELF-PITY AND RAGE AT THE SAME TIME.

Why this ranting?  Because in the past I would only look at the Anisong lineup AFTER the whole AFA was over.  This time I made a very big mistake of checking it out, and finding out it has quite a decent lineup.  In the previous years the lineup didn’t impress me so it wasn’t so hard for me not to go.

I did not allocate any funds this year for travel to Singapore.  I guess I am still quite sore at the debacle I suffered on the last day of the AFA concert–I could barely see May’n because of the gigantic guys in front of me.  The thing I should have done was plan and save up for the next concert instead.  Oh well I guess I should be wiser from now on.  (Actually I could afford to go as I do have some savings…But I have this thing called a budget.)  One day I will come back with a vengeance.  😀

Now excuse me as I go to a corner of my room and weep gently…

Looking Back: Anime Festival Asia 2012 at Singapore EXPO

Standard

OK, so since this year I decided not to go to AFA (for financial reasons–gotta save), I’m in a reminiscing mood.  And since I actually had started writing something about it (but never finished it in 2012 lol), I guess it’s time to post something.  So below is my account of my first-ever trip to the Anime Festival Asia held in Singapore.

——–

Ok, so how do I begin?  This trip had a lot of firsts.  Of course it was my first trip to AFA.  It was my first international trip alone. (Thank God I got through the biggest hurdle of all:  Philippine immigration).  It was also my first time to go to an anime live concert!  Hurray!!
