Nendonesia Surabaya 2nd Gathering was held on Saturday, January 15, 2011 at Grand City Mall, Surabaya. Initially, the gathering was scheduled to start on 2PM, but we waited for some fellow Nendonesians to arrive before starting up – it was an informal event after all. ^^
Anyway, the gathering participants were not as much as our first Surabaya gathering though due to the unpredictable weather and other sudden businesses. Nendonesia’s partner, rendoroid, could not attend the gathering as well, so there was no auction (and less fun). ^^;
Well then, go on past the break for the full report.
Anyway, we started the gathering by viewing a showcase of Nendonesia Photo Contest #1 photo gallery. I apologize if the photos were not viewable because of the small screen size of my netbook. Well, I should probably bring my 13-inch laptop next time … although its battery life is not as durable as my netbook. ^^;
The only female participant in the gathering (Sherli) arrived a little late, but fortunately, she was still able to catch up the photo showcase. ^^
Shortly after we finished browsing through the PhotoCon entries, pAkD came up with a bunch of Nendonesia badges to be given away to Nendonesian who participated in this gathering. Whoa … he got a Nendonesia mug as well! ヽ(´▽`)/
The badges are simply stunning – some of us were beginning to take a snap of the badges with their Nendoroid! ^^
The mug is still a prototype though, but it still looks awesome! Great work by pAkD – couldn’t wait to see how the final version would look like. ^^
Finally, we went to the main agenda: photo session! Some enthusiast Nendonesian photographers were setting up their camera as well as preparing their Nendoroid. Here are some snaps:
It looks fun, doesn’t it? ^^ Now, let’s see some gorgeous shots of our adorable Nendoroid:
Aren’t those Nendoroid look fabulous and extremely adorable in those photos? Personally, I am really amazed at their photography enthusiasm (and skills). Nice shots, guys! ^^
After we finished our photo session, some of Nendonesian took their leaves – whoa … look at the time! The rest of us were having a little discussion about many stuff, ranging from anime to games and (obviously) Nendoroid, while the others were having their lunch/dinner. We concluded our gathering at about 6PM.
Well then, the photo above concludes my report of Nendonesia Surabaya 2nd Gathering. As the event organizer, I deeply apologize if the event were not as fun as you (the gathering participant) expected for some reasons, but I did have fun there, really. ^^
Hopefully we can see you again on our next gathering, Nendonesian! ^^
(Apparently, avalonexa also posted a nice photo-article of the gathering. Kindly check it out! ^^)
Thanks to Raintive_Orion, Xinq’G, Blaze-kun, and avalonexa for the photos, pAkD for the badges and mug, and all of Surabaya Nendonesian who participated in the gathering! ^^
