Popcon is short for “Popular Culture Convention”. It is an event to celebrate creative industry such as comic, movie, animation, games and designer toys. Even though it says “Asia” on the name, based on my observation, the participants are mostly local Indonesian Artist. Nevertheless, the amount of artwork that exist in that place makes it definitely worth the visit.
Yesterday, I received a notification from WordPress saying:

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
Last week, I went to my hometown as a part of my family’s tradition. And I guess this tradition does not only belong to my family but to most families in Indonesia as well. At the end of Ramadhan (a month in Islamic Calendar), it’s usually being followed by a long holiday. This holiday gives people enough time to visit their family back in their hometown.
Hello everyone :D
Last week there was this awesome event happens in my city. It’s the annual Toys & Comic Fair :D. first of all, let’s not start on comparing this event with those convention held in San Diego or Singapore…but here, this one is considered as the biggest Toys Fair held in Indonesia. It was my first time attending this event, I only used to attend the Year End Toys Attack and it was not as big as the one held this March.
Last weekend, I went on a trip to this beautiful island called Bangka. The main reason I went there is to attend my friend’s wedding party. But everyone says that Bangka is famous for its amazing beaches, so I went there not only for the party
Bangka Island is located in the famous Bangka Belitung Province. It is located in the northeastern side of South Sumatera Province. It took an hour flight straight from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, the capital city of the province. There are already lot of flights available so you can choose the one that suit your schedule and your wallet :D
This is the last post about MWFI 2011 coverage. This time, I would like to show you the artist exhibition in the event. There are Artist’s customized Munny, Indonesian artist’s designer toys, and some live drawing by these artists.
Speaking of some local made designer toys, I was pretty surprised with the toys displayed there. It was because I never thought that some of those toys are actually made by Indonesian artist. Maybe it was because those toys are damn expensive…Yeah, I still have the mindset that everything local-made should be wallet friendly :D But the fact that these local made toys are a very limited item, I guess the prize kinda make sense. Here are the photos of Local Designer Toys that I was talking about:
