Miao at 100%Gempak Starz 2011

Warning: Heavy photos ahead. 

Anyone here read local comics?? Please raise up your paw 😀

Two weeks ago, I was asked to cover for the 100% Gempak Starz (previously known as Malaysia Comic Carnival). It was a 3 days event from 26th – 28th November 2011 with lots of activities for the comic fans.

100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition

There was an artwork display from the finalists of 100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition where contestant need to come up with their own version of animation/application/merchandise  ideas etc based on Gempak’s comics.

Here are some of the entries.

I like this!! so cuteee! 😀

Talented bunch! ^^

The Store

They were also selling all the Gempak comics and comic novels there with complete editions 😀

Luckily they did as I managed to buy one to complete my Lawak Kampus (Kuso High School) collection.

I’m a big fan of this comic. Support local comic~~ XD

There’s a lot of people buying and I was given a number to wait for my turn.

While waiting for them to call my number, I walked around the area..

and got caught by this sweet promoter.

They were promoting this Chinese online game (which I forgot the name of) and telling how awesome and popular the game is etc.

I felt bad for them for wasting their energy and time in pursuing me as I don’t play Chinese language games and I already quit online gaming since the birth of Miao&WafuPafu. XD (err.. i quit a lot of stuffs for Miao&WafuPafu LOL)

Nevertheless, thanks to them for their time and to kill mine while waiting for my call. XD

Soon after that I went to redeem my comic book, I took a photo of the rest of the promoters on my way out.

X’Pose

After I took my book. I walked into this section of  awesomeness!!

A section of  special customized booth by our local comic artist!! Darn, they are so creative!!

Check out this Onsen styled booth. One of the most popular there. 😀

Don’t ask me what I saw in there. *cover face XD*

 Autograph Session

There were a couple of autograph session and each session three comic artists will sign for the fans.

Check out the queue @@.

Hopefully, one day I also have a chance of having my own comic autograph session and there’s actually people and cats attending it. Oh wait, I need to come out with my own book before that. @@

The autograph session was long as the comic artists didn’t just sign the comics but..

draw on them!!!

GARGHH!! Y I NO bring my comics!!

While Neko, Jo and Keith was signing on the stage, the rest was interviewed at the booth.

Cosplay 

 There was also a cosplay competition held on that day. Some of the cosplayers were good!

Every time I saw people cosplaying, it reminds me of the very first cosplayer friends I had and met in Hong Kong. I miss them and Hong Kong too T_T

Opening Speech

After that, Fakhrul Anour, the editor of Gempak gave an opening speech on the event, Gempak and also local comic industry.

And ended with a group photo of the comic artists from Art Square Group.

Oh, do support our local comic artist 😀 They’re really good!!  Too bad I wasn’t able to have some talks and interviews with the comic artists as I was kinda short of time. I having a short meetup with the other comic bloggers later that. 😀

It was a funny moment where the professionals comic artist at one side and us, the amateurs just right opposite at the KFC and some of us dreamed to be a comic artists. XD

Anyway, that ends my cover of the event. Hope I get the chance to attend the event again.

Oh before I go, have a Great Caturday night all!!!
