I had lots of fun meeting local cosplayers and interacting with them!
I didn't expect to see so many SG cosplayers and photographers there too, so it was a pleasant surprise!
Hope everyone had fun~
Am glad I was able to say hi-bye to Kaname, Tasha and Miyuko, though I would have loved to be able to catch up with them more :/ Wanted to talk, much more than take photos together >_< I was so unprepared when I had to go upstage; in fact I think I ended up posing like some Egyptian art orz So embarassing...
Many, many thanks to Camelia for putting up with me and for putting me up at her place! It must have been madness for her to rush so many costumes/cosplays/shoots in three days, so really, thank you for doing it! >v<
Although it was a brief period, I had great fun! Can't wait to meet and chitchat again!
Unfortunately the whole trip ended with the suckiest thing that could happen: my iPhone got pick-pocketed =_=
I had luggage and props, so it wasn't easy boarding the train already.
Even though there weren't many people, this guy seemed to be blocking and making boarding difficult for me, on purpose.
At the same time, I felt this guy continually push/nudge me from behind. It wasn't even rush hour, and he could have boarded from my right (which was empty), so I turned ard, glared at him, asked him to stop pushing, while trying to get onto the train.
But he continued still.
After boarding, I swung around and raised my voice "What are you doing?!"
He then apologized and stepped off the train just as the doors closed.
At that moment, it dawned on me what was going on, and to my horror, I saw that half my bag's zip was open.
"FUCK!" was the most natural reaction as I rummaged through my bag. Thank goodness my passport was safe, and my wallet was in another bag. But my 2-mth old iPhone was gone. FFFFFFFFFFFF.
A chinese guy came up to me and told me he thought the guy behind me was helping me with my luggage. Yeah right, by pushing =_= But I don't blame him for not raising his voice, cuz I know most people do not have the courage to in the face of crime.
I was enraged and panicky, cuz all my new contacts and photos and misc. data are all in that phone!!!
I was directed to train security and made a police report at the station I alighted. Naturally, that took time and I missed my coach back to SG and had to buy tickets for a new trip.
While waiting, I had half the heart to return to the station I boarded/was robbed, hunt down the guy and maybe take his life, but the police told me to leave it to them, in case I get targeted again. I hope I can trust their words :/
Just so upset and angry with myself, for not doubting the guy earlier. I hope he gets karma for all the inconvenience he has caused me. Same goes to all criminals who make life difficult for others.
Was cussing and torturing him in my head on the bus trip back. If I ever come across him again, whichever world we are in, I would remove his nails, skin him, whip him, chop him up and throw the parts into boiling oil.
