Yesterday (Saturday) I woke up at 8am and was like "DAMN I have a class and gotta go to Indonesian Readers' Festival!!" but then.. "Ugh, the class isn't too important and I can go to the festival on Sunday" and slept again.
Today, I tried my best to wake up earlier than my usual time on weekend. I would regret it if I didn't go to Indonesian Readers' Festival anyway (#IRF2013). And I've prepared a shirt I wanted to wear to that event. It was Doctor Who t-shirt. Oh I'm so sorry for being a freak, but I do love it.
So the event held at Museum Bank Mandiri in Kota Tua (Old Town?) and the building have no AC in the hall, damn hot. I went with my loyal friend lol. It took 3 hours from my house. WHAT? YES, 3 FRIGGIN' HOURS. I don't have the faintest idea why it took so long. Yeah you can imagine how shabby, tired and hungry we were. Thanks to Shelly my 'bolang' friend. LOL
The event was pretty cool. I got some new books (actually its not new, its like 2nd hand books in a good condition to be read). And there were some awesome booths like EorlingasID (LOTR&Hobbit), WesterosID (Game of Thrones), TMIIndonesia (The Mortal Instrument), IndoHogwarts, Narnia Indonesia, and many more.
In Eorlingas_ID booth, there was this amazing little Smaug.
How can I make one for myself? :(
This stuff is too cool and I want it really bad!
I visited Kelontong Sihir souvenir store. You know what I found? OMG YESSSH I was so lucky that I found a TARDIS pin button and I found the last piece of it. I bought it and a Targaryen pin button from Game of Thrones. There were some other stuff like Harry Potter's wand, Hunger Games stuff, LOTR stuff, but mostly they have Harry Potter stuffs.
Actually I was looking for fandom t-shirts, but didn't find what I want. Huffhh capek deh padahal udah bawa duit lol. But but but as you remember that I was wearing my Doctor Who tshirt, I just felt that people were looking at my shirt! I was hoping there would be a geeky handsome tall smart stranger came after me and said "Hey, you're a whovian? COOL, me too!" (we all can have an imagination) But no one dare to greet me as a whovian sistaah, they just kept looking at me. I don't know what they were looking at anyway. LOL
Theeen.. there came this little girl with an excited face. "WHOVIAN YAAA??" I was as excited as her. "OOHH YEESS I AAAM!" I wasn't the only whovian who came!! We shook hands, she said her name's Fatiya or Fatin or something (I'm really bad at remembering names). So yeah we chat a bit about Doktah Whoo. She didn't talk too much, we walked separately and said goodbye cause I was going out of the hot building I just couldn't handle.
Besides Museum Bank Mandiri, there was Museum Bank Indonesia. I swear this building is much better. Its really cool, calm and good with free entrance. It has a really great maintenance and the stuffs have been in modernization. Yah iya laaah, secara.. ini kan history of central bank in Indonesia which is so famous gitu loh, so it should be a role model for another museum. There are some creepy rooms and awesome rooms inside. I held a really really big and heavy gold in a room and it used to be depository room. LOL
So.. It was a really good day to meet another geeks.
HEIL MEIN FANDOM!! ALL HAIL THE GEEKS!!
