Just a recap on my previous post, here is a list of completed and failed objectives at the AFA 2009.  The list is as follows:

To-Do:

Visit the Moe Moe Kyun Café [FAILED – Ran out of funds]

Attend the Regional Cosplay Championships and watch as they announce the Grand Champion [SUCCESSFUL- Congrats Singapore on winning!]

Take as many photos of Anime Festival Asia 2009 event, or at least until I use up my number of shots or my battery runs out. [SUCCESSFUL]

Attend BOTH days of the festival (Saturday, 21st November & Sunday, 22nd November) [SUCCESSFUL]


Attend the K-ON! Experience where the cast of the series will be doing their live dubbing performance as well as their question and answer session. [SUCCESSFUL – Fantastic live dubbing!]

To view and take photos of the Grand Prize Winner of the Bandai World Gundam Competition as well as the other entries submissions (they’re all winners in my eyes). [SUCCESSFUL]

To visit the Extravaganza 2009 Exhibition of “talented and aspiring individuals” as they showcase their beautiful works of art (as well as a few photos). [FAILED – Completely forgot about it]

With my purchased Weiβ Schwarz Trading Card Game deck, hopefully I can quickly learn and possibly take part if there is time. [FAILED – Decided to buy one outside, plus the starting deck I wanted was not there]

Visit the ‘The Tokyo Figure Show’ & ‘Kotobukiya OTACOOL Showcase‘ with my snapshots taken. [SUCCESSFUL – Absolutely fantastic]anime,

Join in the fun of the Danny Choo ‘Name Card’ hunt for an exclusive Name Card signed by Danny Choo himself as well as a chance to win some epic figurines! [FAILED – Completely forgot about it]

Bonus Objectives:

Overall:

I felt that I had accomplished all my main objectives that I felt were important. Those objectives that I had missed, did not have a chance to do or completely forgot about. Well some of them are achievable after the AFA so all is not lost. Plus I did manage to complete other objectives that I did not plan or foresee happening.
