Visit to 2nd Toy Carnival








It was a long wait of more than an hour before I was able to find a carpark lot at Expo this evening. A long car queue was formed even before Expo Drive and I'm glad my wife was around to accompany me before boredom sets in. The huge crowd was not drawn by 'Toy Carnival' but due to several events going on at the same time on this public holiday.

When I entered the event hall, I could not help feeling disappointment seeing 'Toy Carnival' situated at one small corner like a different entity. It was very different from what I expected and I felt that this year 'Toy Carnival' was least focused. There were figurines of Marvel/DC on sale and Zoids on discount. But, there wasn't any real deal for me or perhaps I arrived late.

The comforting thing was that I managed to meet up friends and comrades who shares the same hobbies like Desmond, Lai and Calvin. I had some good chats with them till the event closed for the day. My apologises for not taking much pics at the venue.
