KYAN!ME 2010

Last week, i had a great time at Kuching. There was an event, Kyanime 2010 organized by Kuching Cosplay Club from 11-13 June. The opening ceremony started on 11 June evening and they end with ending ceremony on 13 June evening. Unfortunately, i did not manage to join their closing ceremony as i'm leaving on that day. The event took place at one of the shopping mall in Kuching city, Spring Centre. They invite some of the cosplayers from Kota Kinabalu Cosplay Club as participant as well as judge for their cosplay competition. Check out their facebook page too. I'm glad to see a strong bond had been formed between Kuching Cosplay community and Kota Kinabalu Cosplayer. Hopefully more event will come after this from both side. Their community members were very nice and friendly. They really do take a good care of us during our stay in Kuching. Big thanks to their organizer Kimberly.
