Well, there's lucky draw...I hope i get to win some prize..Heex!

Greetings at the entrance is Astro Boy...
Oh ya, the dresscode is Toys..
But dearie say he got no shirts with toys etc..
I did asked him to dress as Astro Boy coz they kinda looked alike..
Whahaha..So this is a pose of him..

I wore a superman T-shirt..
I was thinking of renting a costume - Sailormoon
heex..But the rental was so expensive so drop the idea..
If its cheap, i sure go for it..coz my friends all know i love such thingy..
Dressing up in which every D&D my company had i would dress up to their theme..
Coz there's prize & fun!!

Sir was telling us that these two pistol are very dangerous..
They need to be licenced in order to display it in the museum coz it still can fire..
