WARNING: Long entries ahead with loads of photos!

Rachel and I went to the Singapore Toy & Comic Convention yesterday at Suntec Convention Centre. It was an otaku‘s paradise! There were toys, collectibles and comics everywhere. As Friday was the preview night, the exhibition hall was not too crowded and it was easy to move around as well as take photos. Not too sure about today and tomorrow once it’s open to public though. πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures I took to share with everywhere.
