It’s so difficult to find time for our little family to hang out these days as Putra is so busy with work 7 days a week, so it was a treat that we could spend yesterday together at Hellofest Anima Expo in Senayan.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as we entered through the gates, I imagined this is what it must be like in Harajuku, Japan, with all the quirky characters posing for photos in crazy costumes. The place was swarming with cosplayers, cameras and lots of colour.. and boy was it steaming hot! Jakarta is always super sweltering before rain in this wet season. There were booths set up in tents selling costumes, comics, toys and novelty goods but it was far too hot to stop and browse while trying to push through the crowds. Who knew this scene was so huge in Jakarta? There was also another huge anime festival on this weekend so I imagine that would have been crowded also.
We watched people drawing cartoons and their favourite anime characters and posed for lots of photos with the young crowd, before the heat became unbearable and it was time to move on.
Fun days and so loved to hang out with my favourite two boys for family time.
Hope you had a fun Saturday too.
