AFA’09 – Anime Festival Asia

AFA'09 - Anime Festival Asia

I attended AFA09 – Anime Festival Asia on 21st Nov 2009, which was held at Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre. AFA09 is featuring merchadise, live acts and performances, anime / manga and Japanese popular culture. By the time I reached the exhibition halls, I was already greeted by a very long queue at the ticketing booth. I should have go and get the ticket first before I go for my lunch. 🙁

Anyway, regardless of the long queue, I still waited patiently for 45 mins before it was my turn to get the tickets. Adult ticket for one day entry is at S$15 and for weekend pass (2 days) is at S$25. I got the one day pass as I was unable to attend on the second day due to other appointments.
