Just before their set appearance for the SHINE Youth Mascot Parade, a Meet-and-Greet session was held at Camp Pong at *scape in Orchard with famous cosplayers Alodia and Ashley as part of Animax’s Meet the Ani-Mates event.
Camp Pong is an interesting place where one is apparently supposed to play ping pong while drinking copious amounts of alcohol at the bar.
I suppose seeing the ping pong ball split into threes or fours as it comes to you makes for more exciting play.
Or accidentally smacking the back of your friend’s head with your paddle.
Despite the rain, which caused a few delays here and there, the event went without a hitch, starting with some of the upcoming events Animax is having.
This included a list of upcoming anime to be shown on Animax such as Nodame Cantabile, Hayate no Gotoku! ! Season 2, Inuyasha just to name a few.
Also, they announced that Singapore viewers only will get to participate in a watch-and-win contest offering S$532 each week for ten weeks starting from the 19th of July. All entires will then be entered into a final draw for a grand cash prize of S$5,320 for a lucky viewer.
The contest requires viewers to stay tuned to the Animax channel on weekdays to catch clues provided by Ani-mate Alodia. Clues will be provided on all five weekdays of the week. After collecting all the clues. viewers can then submit them online into the weekly draw for the S$532 cash prize.
You can get more submission details at www.animax-asia.com.
Of course, the main event of the day was Alodia and Ashley themselves.
As part of the event, lucky draws were held for a free iphone as well as a chance to play ping pong with Alodia and Ashley, two on one.
No, this poor reporter didn’t get squat =/
And after that, it was the usual photo session as everyone did the wall-of-photographer thing and pressed their shutter buttons.
I will now shut up for a few scrolls so you can enjoy your Alodia and Ashley pictures =/
There was also a autography session as Alodia and Ashley signed Animax organisers that were provided.
They were momentarily distracted by a small and cute object though……
Interestingly enough, a good portion of the We Love Nendoroids and Figmas (WLNF) gang happened to be attending the event and as usual, havoc and hilarity ensues as we had fun our own way as well. =D
Overall, the event was a blast and it was great meeting up with Alodia and Ashley in person (again, since AFA 09).
Don’t forget to catch them at the Mascot Parade happening today at Orchard!
