I was mostly busy with planning for our store anniversary throughout February and March, and was in Japan for ten days (ish) in April with my family, although only about one of those days was spent in Tokyo. Which made me miss Tokyo a lot, because my last couple of trips didn't allow me to spend a lot of time there, either. In May we were preparing for stock take, and there was one time when something was always going on, one after another - Comic Arts Fest and KL Book Fest and Cooler Lumpur Fest and book launches and other stuff like that, and before I knew it it was Ramadhan and I was broke but somehow in Singapore.
matsumazing and I went to the live viewing of Waku Waku Gakkou in Singapore. We went on Saturday and Sunday morning, and regretted not getting tickets for Sunday evening because we enjoyed it so much. I still haven't written about it though - it'll be up on my wordpress when I do.
I had also gone on a different trip to Singapore for a play, and to hang out with my nieces. And then last week was Eid, or was that the week before that, and this weekend kanzeon (I owe her a Tadao Ando-signed mag) is coming down to KL and we're meeting up, possibly with showjuro and reiki74h (I owe her a Waku2 pouch/tissue case).
I just hope I get through August, because I'm supposed to attend a Harper event, go to Tioman with my family, go to Tokyo all by myself (well, matsumazing will be around for 3-4 of the 8 days I'm there) and possibly host a Pippi Longstocking 70th birthday bash. All in the same month.
I'm hoping for a peaceful October, but that's when the serious planning for Christmas events and promotions at the store gets done (>_<).
If I had lots of peace and quiet, though, what I feel like doing now is write a fic. And maybe actually finish it.
Oh, and I'm working on a new zine which is kinda sorta Arashi-related, hence the questions I asked Salwa, and my return to LJ in general and arashi_on in specific, which made me miss fandom. Rather a lot. Especially since two-thirds of the people in my office are KPop fans and were loudly discussing this Big Bang concert they were all going together, and I'm not just the lone Arashi fan, I'm the lone JE/Jpop fan. Sigh.
So what I'm really saying is, hi, I miss you all. Seeing that I was away for so long I'm not sure if I'll remember to check in so often or if anyone else is still around (have I said this before? I feel like I've said this before) but hi anyway :)
