Captain’s log                                    Stardate: 81231.6 (Dec 31st, 2o16)

Hours left and we will soon say goodbye to 2016, and welcome the new year 2017!

That one year had brought me to face quite a number of ups and downs. Even the worse. Can say much of a turbulent ride of the year for me. I rather share the good ones. We all each have our own problems. The headache we have been through. Seriously I rather not share about that…. 

Still, at the end of the day we all learn to pick ourselves up and move on with the time. Life still as it is, like a cycle as we move on with our everyday life. Changes that we will see. And obstacles that we will encountered.

I made new friends along the way, most at cosplayers. All share the same common interest, and most really wants you to be part of their family.

One of the best moments I had cherished was getting engage with my girl that year’s April. We had our flaws, problems, getting all the ups and downs that couples will faced (The obvious reasons). But eventually we get along well. As long we keep our promise to continue loving and respect one another as time goes by and towards our marriage. We will make it through my love, God’s willing. We will always be there for each other… 

My Clash of Superpowers project so far as been going well. A total of 4 videos were produced on that same year. During that period of time I had been getting a lot of avid cosplayers that were keen to be part of it. Its all depends on the time and schedule. But I hope me and my team can get those involved and expand it to the expectations. 

And so, these are the best highlights that has been happening and what has been accomplished. So here I go. Take your time to read and hope you enjoy =)

A VISIT TO KKH (Kandang Kerbau Hospital)
Date: 17th March 2016

On this day, three Power Rangers and Princess Anna of Arendelle (Frozen) make their way down to the hospital to pay a visit to the kids there. To give them what they deserved. Happiness, care and loved.

Its another meaningful day for us, members of the fun-loving committee, Pause For A Cause (PFAC) to show our support, dedication to the little ones and to make their day. Make it the best ever! An unforgettable one. This too includes for the nurses and doctors, as well as the families. Its always fun to see your favourite characters or superheroes appeared at your working place!

A VISIT TO THE JAMIYAH CHIDREN’S HOME
Date: 28th March 2016

Our friendly and loving community Pause For A Cause was been invited by the Jamiyah Children’s Home. The home is an abode of care and shelter for the orphans and children of single parents, drug detainees, abused and dysfunctional families. 5 of us turned up for that day, which consist of three Power Rangers, One Doraemon and Naruto. 

This kids come as young as 3 years old. I was told some even have experienced trauma. They are only children. Innocent and lost. So that’s why the home aims to spread the unconditional love to these children and help them to develop into responsible adults.

So be grateful how fortunate that you have loving parents. These kids may be rowdy. Misbehaved. But knowing where they came from, and the painful journey they had to face, I hope one day they grow up to be responsible, and what the home had taught and groom them. God’s willing. They are still humans and deserved to be shape for the better.

TEAM DELTA COHESION PLUS FAMILY DAY
Date: 30th April 2016

Marina Bay Sands Security Department, Team Delta had a Cohesion and Family Day where it was been organised by our team’s Operation Manager. Knowing that I’m a cosplayer, cosplaying as the ever recognised Red Ranger, he had given me this opportunity to invite my group down and be part of this private event. This is a good chance for the team as you don’t get to see this everyday. Especially when there’s kids around and you get to see your favourite childhood superhero live! =D

Other than just simply take photos with us, we also decided to put a simple skit. This Everybody there truly enjoys it. A chance for a lifetime for the team.

MOVIE SCREENING PLUS A CARNIVAL
Date: 25th June 2016

A friend of mine who was one of the volunteers at the Mountbatten Community Centre CC had invited me and my Power Rangers gang to come down to spice up the event and brighten up the kids. Also, its the month of the June school holidays. The best time to entertain the kids. So far only 2 of us can make it. 

There’s a line of games booths, food and more. The movie screening, to my understanding will be about life in Singapore back in the olden days. But for us, cosplayers, we mainly there just for the carnival =D

END OF YEAR EVENT
Date: 10th – 11th December 2o16

Short of EOY, this Japanese pop-cultural arts event is back at the same location, which is at Marina Barrage. There will be performances by Japanese celebrities, well-known cosplayers. Music and dance performances by home-grown talents, artwork exhibitions and booths selling a wide range anime merchandise and artworks. Infact, its more on focusing towards Japanese culture. So if you are into such, this event is just for you.

I had finally debut in my latest character. One which is my childhood and which I wanted to cosplay for sooooo long. Its from this wacky comedy movie called “The Mask.” A comedy movie released in 1994, and starring the king of comedy, Jim Carrey.

Truly enjoyed in it. ITS SMOKIN!!!

A MORPHENOMENAL BIRTHDAY PARTY
Date: 24th December 2o16

Once again, our Toku group was been invited for another Power Rangers birthday party, for a little chap who just turned 5. This give us the chance to take this opportunity to bring the smile and happiness to the kid. 

4 of us were there, and as much as the father want to give his son the best birthday ever, so too are we. He loves Power Rangers, and we will give him the best birthday party whenever the opportunity presents itself. 

You should have seen the WOW reaction on the kid’s face when we appeared. Yes, he did not expect this.

===============================================================

Well, that’s all the fun I had been and those that I have accomplished for that year. There are some of the things that I’ve yet to achieve. As this takes time, I will pursue with the flow and hope to make it happen. God’s willing.

To be frank, I had none much to say other than what was written above. 2017 will soon take over, and it will be like all over again.

But it will a new beginning for some, to further re-evaluate the things that we want to achieve. Your goals, to pursue your dreams. 2016 will be like a stepping stone, and 2017 will be where you take the leap.

I do agreed that we all change as time goes by. Either better or worse. But always its good for the better. No matter what, the Earth is always going forward and we can only hope what’s best for the future.

We learn from our past, we fall and learn to pick ourselves up in the present, so we know what to do for the future.

Let’s all look forward for the new year and what lies ahead. I am looking forward for some of the things that I want to achieve. God’s willing.. =)
