Captain’s log                                              Stardate: 79014.6 (Dec 28th, 2014)

Few more days before 2014 comes to an end. This year alone had brought me to face quite a number of ups and downs. I cannot say that the year has not been good to me. I mean, everyone had their own problems. And also the fact that each year we will face new challenges, opportunities and even encountered more problems. I could only say that’s much sadness involved for me. A lot of awful things happened and I had try to drown that sadness ever since. I’ve suffered long enough. Been told many times not to look back because there’s nothing for me there.

But as time goes by, other then facing what normally we hate the most, we will also face what’s good along the way. There’s always that stroke of happiness where we shall hang out with your loved ones, friends on gatherings, events, you named it.

So before the year comes to an end, I will always listed down best highlights that has been happening and what’s been accomplished. So here I go!

CATS WELFARE SOCIETY DONATION DRIVE
Date: 16th March 2014

A small group of us from our friendly Pause For A Cause community had taken part for this donation drive while donned in our suits. So we were there to attract the members of public, while helping out the volunteers doing the donations. So you see, our community is also involved in helping raising funds for animals like cats and dogs whenever we see fit. It still part of our commitment in making a difference to society.

Unfortunately, there are no cats on that day as we expected there might be. But still, we had fun =)

HAPPY 30TH ME
Date: 3oth March 2014

I’ve reached the end of my years of being in my 20s. Feeling like so old of all a sudden…=D The time flies so fast that I’m beginning to miss those years….

For my 30th birthday, I had invited all my Red Rangers buddies to celebrate my birthday with me. With that, I had propose the theme as “Forever Red” birthday bash. It may sounds “bash.” But its just a simple gathering with mouth-watering food that my mum had cooked. Most importantly, its having the comfort with awesome friends coming over to celebrate your birthday. This way, you can never feel old! =D

A BEST FRIEND’S SPECIAL DAY
Date: 6th April 2014

Of all the Malay weddings I’ve attended, the one I attended that day is the best ever! Among all the guests there were the awesome group of Power Rangers and Kamen Riders, that comes together to celebrate two of our Rangers who are getting married. One cosplay as the Black Ranger while the other is the Pink.

I wish both husband and wife all the best in this new journey of yours and a blissful marriage. A new chapter has opened for you and may this path leads you for a brighter future ahead. May you always remember the love you feel today, enjoy your time and and happy together.

PROJECT GIVE – GIVE A SMILE
Date: 22TH June 2014

Its another fun filling day for the community of Pause For A Cause to come together to bring smile for the kids. On that day, we were heavily involved with Project GIVE, where the team work alongside with Kandang Kerbau Hospital’s (KKH) Homecare team. Their aim is to provide joy, happiness, cheers and lots of love for those kids with special needs. With us providing the best of our support, we can ensure the kids and their families that this will be an awesome event they won’t forget. 

6 of us Power Rangers show up at the event. Because of that the event’s theme will be the morphenomenal Power Rangers! Superheroes who carried the symbol of hope and happiness. The kids and their families were widely amazed as they did not expect us, the Power Rangers to make an appearance. Its a very meaningful event =)

COSFEST XIII – THE FINAL FANTASY
Date: 5th – 6th July 2014

Most favourite event ever from many of us cosplayers, and one of the events that I hate to miss. 1st day donned as the Red Ranger, while the 2nd day with the dragonshield wrapped around my chest. Its one of those events also dedicated for families and friends to come on down and spend the day with the cosplayers. Its also where we cosplayers can get to know more and new cosplayers and being friends. The circle of friendship here is ever so expanding. That’s one of the reason why I hate to miss! =P

GAZA AID – FLAG DAY WITH MERCY RELIEF
Date: 30th – 31st August 2014

Members from Pause For A Cause once again enlighten the people on how we, as cosplayers can make a difference in society through cosplaying. Same like how we did for the Philippines Haiyan Relief Charity last year November, the Gaza Aid is without a doubt.

We all are aware of what’s been happening in Palestine during back then, and Singapore is one of the few countries to have come forward in providing aid and humanity support.

So working alongside with the people from Humanitarian aid group Mercy Relief, we will do our part to attract the public. To encourage them to donate any amount as we are doing this for a good cause. At the same time while having fun. Cosplaying into something meaningful and I never regret doing it! =)

COSFEST CHRISTMAS

Christmas is around the corner. So what better way for us cosplayers to spend the time off with friends and families to come celebrate before the year ends. You will see some of the cosplayers will don Santa’s hat or even Santa’s coat over theirs, as to share the joy and happiness for the festive season. It was been created like a special gift for cosplayers and fans of Cosfest here in Singapore. The feeling on that day was just too amazing! =D

That’s all for the amazing times I had spend for 2014. Its an awesome and a wonderful experience at the same time. And by next year, hope to see some flying cars, hoverboards, holographic projectors, those so-called Hydrators, Code-bar license plate….

….Ok, I’ve been watching too much Back to the Future Part II…=P However if you have notice, some of the awesome stuff seen in the movie do actually come true.

Anyway, I hope for the best in 2015. Life goes on from there and we can either expect or face the unexpected for the things to come. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! POWER UP!
