Disclaimer: This is a rant post.
I am pretty sure that you have heard before the Doraemon Expo! Wee! It is a great news for Doraemon Fans! It is a great place to reminisce some childhood memories! Hooray!
The Original Doraemon.
Okay. I guess I have to stop you here before any disappointment strikes you down.
I am just like the another happy kid, wanting to meet my idol, Doraemon. Don't laugh. I am truly love Doraemon from the bottom of my heart. (Sound exaggerating, right? Im not.) So I thought spending my quality time with my friend to the Doraemon Expo. But unfortunately, I put my expectation a little too high.
Everything is wrong once I step in the Doraemon Expo.
1. The description of how Doraemon became blue is right behind the Doraemon's figure.
The Doraemon figure is totally in the wrong placement. Where got people placed the figure RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DESCRIPTION ONE? WHICH GRANDFATHER TEACH YOU? Sigh.
The only way that you could read it is to move your body to right close beside the Doraemon's figure and this cause the unhappiness for those people who would like to take picture with.
2. There are too many people taking pictures. This annoyed me whenever I tried to read description of the items that Doraemon is holding and right second I am reading it and there is someone said "Excuse me?" Every single f*cking time.
A whole bunch of people taking pictures which makes me wondered, did anyone read up the description? And will anyone flip through back the pictures that they took? They are over 100 Doraemon figures in the expo. and there are people that take pictures with th 100 figures. I wonder lah.
The moral of the story: Don't go there on weekends.
3. Some of the description of the Doraemon items are sad. It is just a brief description without the items' name.
The management can do better if they include the comic strip where the Doraemon or Nobita uses the item or explain more details about it. That is why it called the Doraemon expo right? But I guess they are too lazy to do this.
4. The Extremely No Brainer Part of Exhibition.
I just don't understand why must they put chinese language to describe the manuscript? Does the management thinks that only Chinese people read Doraemon? And if they do think that way, they think all Chinese knows Chinese language well ah? *speechless*
The place where they displayed the Fujiko Fujio's (Doraemon's creator) manuscript.
Okay I think I need to stop ranting here. There are too many things to rant about this Expo. Don't get me started on the mass produced, overpriced Doraemon merchandise. =_=
But...the only thing that worth seeing is the Doraemon statues with different kinds of expression that makes you smile and feel nostalgic at the same time. :) Here are the some pictures of Doraemon in the exhibition.
Do you notice something wrong with the picture?
This kid was left sleeping alone on the baby trolley while the family taking pictures. I kesian the kid.
If you are really a true Doraemon fan, hurry up before this month ends. However, do not put high expectation on this event.
