Photos: Comic Fiesta 2011 (Ceui, Mikuni Shimokawa, Group Cosplay)

Comic Fiesta, Malaysia’s longest-running annual Animation, Comics and Games (ACG) convention is back this year at KL Convention Centre yesterday and today. We braved the human traffic to be part of the celebration of art & creativity as well as the ever popular ACG culture!

And what is an ACG convention without Cosplay, right? Check out some of the pics we managed to snap yesterday.

CF is packed...

The queue to go into the hall. Wow...It's even longer than the queue for iPhone 4S. LOL!

While walking out from KL Convention Centre we saw a bunch of people wering yellow having a garden party at KLCC Park and enjoying the sunny day! :D

Note: The year 2011 marks the return of CF for the tenth edition, set to improve upon the event attendance of 15,000 last year. Comic Fiesta is voluntarily organised by an eclectic group of individuals who wish to share their passion with their peers. This event is strictly non-profit and all proceeds will be channeled into the organisation of next year’s iteration.

Celebrunner: Yeo Yann Yann 杨雁雁 @ Petaling Street Warriors 大英雄,小男人

Meet Yeo Yann Yann, a Malaysian born, Singapore-based actress, giving us her best running pose. :) Thank you Yann Yann!

This is the second time we met Yeo Yann Yann during a movie promo. The first time was in 2009, when she was in town to promote the movie by Yasmin Ahmad titled Muallaf. Read about it HERE.

She's back with her latest action/ comedy flick called Petaling Street Warriors!

She brings sexy back. ;). Yann Yann proudly shows off her gorgeous bare-back pink dress.

Unlike the sexyback photos here, Yann Yann main feature in the movie is her two "volcanoes". Yes, that's what she called them. Yann Yann had to stuff the two water bags into her clothes to create a busty image for her role in the movie, we were told. Heheh!

In the movie she plays Zhung Li Chun, the wife of a Hokkien mee seller (Mark Lee) who got herself entangled in deadly battles with Japanese spies and kung fu-fighting eunuchs while trying to protect her husband and some hidden royal treasures.

Check out the photos from the recent press conference for the movie that also featured their co-star Frederick Lee, action director Ma Yuk Sing and producer/co-director Sampson Yuen.

Petaling Street Warriors was set against the backdrop of Petaling Streets in 1908, way before it was taken over by foreigners selling fake goods. ;)

It promises tonnes of laughter and crazy fighting stunts!

Mark Lee who plays the main character, Shi Duyao, often utters a catchphrase "jitoot".

While "ji" means "chicken" in Mandarin, "toot" has no meaning. As he uses "jitoot" to express his upset moods! But to us, it sounds more like a bleeped out version of a swear word. LOL!

The handsome actor, Frederick Lee plays a powerful eunuch called Ma Fu Yi.

Smile for the pressies....

Petaling Street Warriors is directed by James Lee, who couldn't come to the press con because he was not in the country.

We enjoyed the movie very much. Hope you guys will go and watch it too!

Petaling Street Warriors also features Namewee, Alvin Wong and Jack Neo. Check out their running poses HERE, HERE and HERE.

Petaling Street Warriors opened 1 December and it is still showing in the cinemas near you! Hurry and go catch this hilarious kungfu spoof madball action comedy!

It's RED! Very auspicious, eh? The run will be happening on 15 Jan 2012. A week before the Chinese New Year weekend. :D

So, it's a good event to train up and get your body fabulous-looking for CNY! Heheh!

We attended the press launch of the event at Mizuno outlet (Lot T225A, 3rd Floor. The Gardens Mid Valley City) just now.

FYI, Mizuno Wave Run was 1st initiated in December 2005 as a fun running event to compliment the many other existing high profile performance running event in the country with an objective to create a healthy lifestyle activity for all.

The 1st event in 2005 was held at Padang Merbuk Kuala Lumpur & attracted about 900+ runners. The following years have seen the event growing with the following participations 900 (2005), 1,300 (2006), 1,900 (2007), 2,800 (2008), 3,800 (2009) and 4,400 (2010). For the year 2012, Mizuno's target is 5,000 runners.

Mr. Glenny J Da Costa - Sales & Marketing Manager as the emcee of the day.

Mr. Joachim Heng - Marcom Manager giving the opening speech.

Mr Rustam Razaihan (President, Pacesetters Athletic Club Malaysia) promises a fun yet challenging route for the runner. He added, "Runners can expect a hill in the route because hill is a "trademark" of any Pacesetters events."

Dato’ Sieh Kok Chi (Secretary General, Olympic Council Malaysia) lamented about lack of great runners in our countries and hoped events like The Mizuno Wave Run could promote and produce better runners to represent the country in the future.

ALL Finishers in will receive a FINISHERS MEDAL & a FINISHERS CERTIFICATE with their name, timings & position printed on the certificate.

Both Starting & Finishing will be held at Stadium UPM & the entire 10km route will cover most part of the UPM campus site & runners will be running in a chartered route specially catered to give runners enjoyment & safety route.

After the race, light breakfast from the sponsors will be served to participants while waiting for the announcement of the final results of winners.

Mr Kiyoshi Tatani (Business Manager, Mizuno Corporation Japan)

Over the past few years, we notice that sports activities especially the running event has attracted a lot of interest from the public & we in Mizuno felt that its our responsibility as a an International Sports Company to further support these enthusiast & passionate public by organizing a running event to give them opportunity to gauge their capability & to maintain the legacy of “To Enjoy Running”

Photos: Rock The World : Adrenaline 2011

11 years running and still going strong, Rock The World is one of the major rock festivals that congregates all music fans of Malaysia's rock scene.

Every year Rock The World showcases the best bands and highlights new and upcoming bands coming through the ranks.

The turn up is awesome!

We like everything about RTW11 except this fat emcee. He's kinda lame. Can you guys bring back Rina Omar? She was a gem at last year RTW10. Read HERE.

Tune Talk's World Biggest SIM Card Shaped Hot Air Inflated Balloon waiting for subsribers to get a free ride.

Check out the pics we took last night, featuring bands like Daarchlea, The Azenders, Bittersweet, Massacre Conspiracy, The Padangs and Akta Angkasa.

Bittersweet's tambourine power.

I can't really get the music from Akta Angkasa. Maybe it's because there's no vocalist in this band.

A hidden rose among the thorns. The DJ from Akta Angkasa.

The Azenders bringing the house down!

The Padangs from Kajang!

He looks like he belongs in a boyband rather than in a metal hardcore headbanging outfit, doesn't he?

Girls, can't get enough of the cute front man of The Padangs? Check out their cover of Baby (yes..made popular by Justin Bieber) and check out how the crowd went crazy in the mosh! It's INSANE!

Read about our experience at last year's Rock The World 10 HERE.
