If you dunno about Doraemon, I can ensure you're not from my generation or older :P Anyway, finally Doraemon is in Malaysia! Heard it is much better than the #lowbudgetbutspenddamn7alot9moneyontheexpo one in Genting Highland on previous time. It cost RM25/ticket for adult.. ouch I am an adult huh :( But but but I still like Doraemon!! Still remember my very first comic that I pick up and read are Doraemon, in Malay version since I can't read Chinese. I used to have complete comic series of Doraemon except the cerita panjang.
* Mesin Cahaya Masa!! *
* Do you know that Doraemon was yellow to begin with? *
Curious on how Doraemon was born? Here the video!
What to expect in the expo? Doraemon, Doraemon and Doraemon everywhere! Ok just kidding. It is basically a little history of Doraemon, the gadgets that appeared in series/movie before, the town in the comic itself and of course some unforgeable moment/event that happened in Doraemon series before. Abit disappointed though that all the gadgets display doesn't have name and description on it. Or even better if they can put a little bit of comic strip to describe the gadgets usage.
* Woof *
* Door that everyone wish to have. Pintu Suka Hati! *
* The bread that I been dreaming to have when I am student... *
* Trying to rub the Genie out *
Of course, there are some interactive drawing or real life gadgets available for fun photography purposes.
* Managed to attend Nobita & Shizuka wedding *
* Air Gun! *
* Pintu Suka Hati again *
* Ouch *
* Poor deary getting scold from the vase uncle *
* Air gun again *
* Doraemon girlfriend? *
* Buluh Terbang! *
* Errr wireless phone? *
* Lampu besaran! *
* Hey I found the bread! *
There are some merchandise, cafe and event fun fair towards the end of the expo. They have the famous Doraemon snack, Dorayaki which IMHO overpriced. Don't even know it is authentic or not :(
Couldn't help myself but bought four collar pin of Doraemon! It is so cute!!
Overall, great expo for people who love Doraemon but I think the RM25 price it too expensive :( Guess it was holiday season too that cause too many people as well even on weekday. The expo will end on 24th March 2014, so don't miss your chance to meet Doraemon!
