… Pop-Culture resource for the Malaysian Community

Iori Nomizu Live in Kuala Lumpur

UPDATED 21 October 2016 – added official image & audio show reel!!


2 months ago as I was looking if any date had been set for the reopening of the Lot 10 Isetan after it’s closing in 2015. Of course I’m excited to read that Isetan has inked an agreement with Cool Japan to help promote Japanese (Pop) Culture and in Malaysia the Lot 10 outlet will be transformed… But “date please! anyone?”. Then I read about the target date being October 2016… huhu Great news for us & our country!! MALAYSIA YEAH! “Everybody say YEAH!”

Anyways then later about 5 weeks ago, a little blue bird told me that there might be a seiyu coming down to KL for an event… again my reaction is “Everybody say YEAH!”. Whether it’s true or not… still “Everybody say YEAH!” haha Well there are different ‘little blue birds’, some are hopeful ones, some are disillusioned, some are mental and then there are the few who when they say ‘maybe’ or ‘might be’ it actually means = reliable sources are already at work in making it happen…51% of work is already done. Now these are the mostly the ONLY little blue birds in whom I would like to meet up, work with and whose words I will take heed of 😀 Reliable people are HARD to find! God bless them more please! haha

Anyways the time has come to announce the event itself & will great excitement + anticipation … here it goes (according to the official info):
