Anime Festival Asia (Thailand) 2016

AFA Thailand concluded last weekend in the capital of Thailand; Bangkok. I had the chance to be there on the last day of the event and here are some of my videos and photographs! Held at the Paragon Mall in Siam, the event was happening in the heart of the city. The event location was easy to locate and very accessible by train.

Thank you for reading this blog entry. I hope you enjoyed looking through the photographs and my crappy write up. I really should have updated a lot earlier but I was battling food poisoning in a foreign land hence the delay. Thank you to all the cosplayers who posed for me too ^_^
