Nendonesia Surabaya 3rd gathering was held on February 26 (hey, that’s my birthday! ^^;) and it marks our third consecutive monthly gathering since our first one back then on December last year. This time, the number of participating Nendonesian is even higher than our first gathering, and more than twice higher than our second gathering last month. Whoa … thanks for coming to the gathering, Nendonesian! ^^
Anyway, our gathering venue was located at Food Court of Grand City Mall, Surabaya and the meeting time is 2PM – same as the previous two gatherings. In the end, the gathering was delayed for about half an hour because we waited for the participants (and the MC, rendoroid) to arrive at the venue. ^^
Although some of us have already known each other, there were several new attendants there, so we begin the gathering with a brief introduction session for all of the gathering participants, moderated by the MC. ^^
Shortly afterwards, I and rendoroid began our preparation for the next agenda: Nendonesia Quiz! The quiz consists of several questions about general knowledge on Nendoroid realm, as well as some Nendoroid sillhouette to be guessed which is similar to “Who’s that Pokemon?” from the animated series of Pokemon. ^^
(Note: I have provided a PDF version of the Quiz, if you want to take a look at it. ^^)
Arachnider (Archi) came out as the winner in the quiz and he got a Nendonesia mug as the prize, while yozz00 won the runner-up prize, a set of exclusive photo postcards taken from Nendonesia Photo Contest #1.
Shortly after the quiz had ended, we went to our next agenda: Nendoroid Unboxing Session! Yep, as the previous gathering, this session is intended for Nendonesian who brings their brand-new-sealed Nendoroid and unbox them together at the gathering. ^^
The Nendoroid unboxing session was quickly followed by the main agenda in the gathering: Nendoroid Photo Session. Here are some shots taken from this session:
The photo session was ended with a grand photo session of all Nendoroid there. Here they are:
Well, it was quite difficult to take photos of the Nendoroid army, because there were some “earthquakes” occured on the table. Some of the Nendoroid were falling apart several times, so we had to re-setup the stage. ^^
After the photo session was finished, we held an Auction Session, with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku as the auction item!! In the end,
Finally we gave away photo post cards as a memento for Nendonesian who have attended the gathering.
… and then, we closed the gathering with a photo session of most gathering participants (well, some of us had left the venue, so they couldn’t make it to the photo session).
KairiZero, one of the gathering participants, came very late to the gathering, but she did made it to the photo session. ^^
Well then, that concludes my report on Nendonesia Surabaya 3rd Gathering. Special thanks goes to pAkD, who provided the Nendonesia badges and shirts, Ekstaradis for providing the yummy cakes (^^), rendoroid for the auction item, and being the M.C … and finally I want to thank you all, Nendonesian, for your time to attend and support the gathering.
We apologize if the gathering was not up to your expectation. m(_ _)m
In any case, see you again on our next gathering, Nendonesian! Keep loving your Nendoroid! ^^
