Scotland Loves Animation 2012 - Nerawareta Gakuen, Wolf Children ::

I always end up thinking "Anime" instead of "Animation" but then I just noticed this K-ON poster is written the same too! I guess "Anime" does mean animation in French but I still prefer it means Japanese animation when used in English. So this year's Scotland Loves Animation 2012, the movies were... Both cinemas: Glasgow Film...


PS Vita Room Preview Event

Dropped by the PS Vita Room at Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow which lasted for just under a week from January 24th - 29th. Nice friendly staff around. Even the security guards were being the doormen. I didn't bother the staff with any questions since I read enough about the PSP successor ever since the rumour mill had been running so, I...


Dundee, D-CON 2011

I know it's been 2 weeks since D-CON 2011 but better late than never ^^; Never been to an Anime convention before so I thought I'd run along to the annual event based at the University of Dundee, D-Con for this year. It was my first time in Dundee and instead of noting down directions or following signs, I used GPS on my Android phone to take...


Happy Chinese New Year 2010! ::

Happy Chinese New Year to those of you who celebrate it! Went out to Glasgow's Chinatown to catch the lion and dragon dances performed by the Glasgow Hong Lok Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe since I just happened to notice the poster they had up last night while out at a family dinner. Met an old friend while I was there who I hadn't kept in touch...


Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas 2009 ::

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas readers! We've had snow for the past few days here so it's going to be a white Christmas this year - Not that uncommon to be honest but still nice with all the warm festive red colours inside while it's cold fluffy snow everywhere else outside. Time for me to go hibernate until the new year begins, lol. Looks...


Santa Dash 2009 ::

On Sunday morning, over 4000 people dressed up in Santa costumes gathered together at Glasgow's George Square for the annual fund raising Santa Dash event and I went along to watch for the first time. I arrived in town at around 8:30am because of the sparse number of buses on a Sunday. I passed by a number of patrol cars that were already...


Glasgow Green Fireworks 2009

Went along to Glasgow Green for the fireworks display in town this year to see what it was like since I've never been. I remember the city council here used to run the Bonfire Night event at George Square and people needed tickets to enter the premises. Here it's free and there's plenty of space. Arrived at around half 6 when George Bowie...


Happy Bonfire Night 2009

Hope you guys and girls had/have a good night out for those of you who celebrate Bonfire Night! Mine was.... Quite a mix of events. First time I popped into town to watch the fireworks but, can't miss a good opportunity to experiment with my DSLR camera ^^; At the end of the night I had... Quite a night. I don't mind people walking pass the...


Mid-Autumn Festival 2009

中秋節快樂! 中秋节快乐! Yes, I know it's passed. Wasn't really going to make a post about the annual Mid-Autumn Festival but, then I remembered this shot of some cakes my parents brought back from their trip to London on the day. Cute, eh? Almost £3 (US$5) each... Lots of cream skilfully decorated on top of a slice of roll. Tasted pretty good....


Merchant City Festival 2009 Parade

The annual Merchant City Festival 2009 just ended yesterday and it also happened to be the first time I attended. It was a good opportunity to give my DSLR a whirl. Fortunately, it wasn't raining so I managed to get some shots during Saturday's parade. The parade was gathering at Nelson Mandela place and the police were already there to...
