This year, I am very fortunate to have time to attend the CJ Night gathering organized by Danny Choo and his friends in Singapore. From the Facebook update by Danny, the signup count is 292 at the end of AFA day 3. On thing immediately pops up in my mind is, the Akb48 cafe is not really that big. Will 292 people fit in?
It turns out to be, just barely. With the “Daughters” at the center stage, and card battlers at the enter of the room, most ofthe other people, including myself, had to stand most of the time. Then again, the purpose of this gathering is to gather liked minded people and mix around, and so, having too many chairs will just dampen te effort.
I arrived 20 minutes late for the event itself, and was surprised with the number of people who turned up at 3 o’clock to attend the gathering. The number of people wasn’t that many, but boy, every single chair at the venue was filled up.
After Danny finished his introduction (one which I missed most part of it), everyone started to mingle around. While Comrades started to gather around Danny, due to the fact that I was standing right behind Danny, he passed me a WS Mirai PR card, while he was talking to my friend, Nicholas.
And here is Danny, holding up “Mirai’s Oppai”…
While trying to figure out how to keep Mirai safely, something else immediately caught my eyes. Dolfies. Luckily, my friend, Nicholas, volunteered to safe keep my Mirai PR until I bring my card album, allowing myself to have less worries while I unleash the shutterbug in me.
Of course, there are some other kinds of “daughters” which my comrades brought to the gathering, namely, Nendos and Figmas.
Of course. Apart from ogling at Dollfies and PVCs, I do met a few friends around, and some of them whom I met during thr AFA concerts.
Here is dA…

and finally, just before my friends and I leave the place, Nicholas got a chance to speak to Danny for a while….
I will be looking forwards to the next gathering next year. Some 365 days later.
