Newtype Taiketsu 2015

Not sure how to put this, but the invitation kinda get me off guard. I got a watapps message from one of my team mate of Team Nexus, Don waskito of Indonesia, telling me that there’s someone in Indonesia want to invite me over for the competition to conduct a workshop. Is this for real?? Once he mention about the competition name – Newtype Taiketsu, then i realize it’s real deal, i seen some renowned gunpla modeler share about this. But the date is just about 3 weeks away…….. wait what? Mean i don’t have much time to consider or ready my stuff…..
Well, this is once in a lifetime chance for me. ( I think to myself) Just go and had fun, i sure people there are awesome and i LOVE to meet friends with same interest.
The organizer and boss of Mechaspot, Martin Halim Kusuma, is a sincere and passionate person i must say, sponsored my flight tickets and accommodation and done the flight booking within a day i confirm. @_@

Okay let’s skip the food i ate during the trip, i ate a lot and both Johanes and Martin keep feeding me nice foods….. omg…

Once i reach the venue of the event, mangga dua square. Was surprised with the billboard and banner they put up for the event. My face printed and on a billboard…… wow…

Newtype Taiketsu also have Anupong Channarong as their invited guest. It’s my honor to finally meet him as well, think i knew him long ago in forums, his nickname was Nununu that time, a passionate and well known gunpla modeler from Thailand. He bring his work for display as well, what a great honor to see them in person.

Had a great time in Indonesia, really a lovely country and love the foods as well, although they are very similar with some Malaysia food. Will sure visit there again. 🙂
