2. Effective Volunteerism Hangout #30

With limited time and resources, how can I make the greatest positive impact in this world?” That is the question which we ask at Effective Altruism Singapore.Effective altruism (EA) is a global movement that seeks to apply evidence and reason to determine the most effective ways to improve the world. It is about doing the most good we can do.If you care about doing good and to do it in more effective ways, come join us for an introduction to effective altruism to find out more about how you can make a difference in the world.

This month, we’d like to hear more about people’s interests in EA or ‘doing good more effectively’. This will help us design and organise an EAGx event in Singapore (https://www.eaglobal.org/). Whether you’re new to or are part of our EA SG community already, all are welcome to join in this discussion.

Organised by EA Singapore and (http://effectivealtruism.sg/). Also posted on https://www.meetup.com/Effective-Altruism-Singapore-Meetup/events/rvvjnpyxgbkc/This meetup is part of the Be Inspired program at A Good Space (www.facebook.com/agoodspacesg) Where People of Purpose Play.

C3 AFA 2018: A taste of Akihabara in Singapore

Published

on

Since the days of Naruto in 480p to present day Boruto in HD, Anime Festival Asia (AFA) has been a staple for local fans of anime and Japanese pop culture. The annual affair has grown tremendously since it first reached our shores back in 2008, solidifying its status as a pilgrimage of sorts, akin to the wonders of Akihabara.

Back for its tenth anniversary, AFA 2018 proved to be the best its ever been with performances from a star-studded lineup at the I Love Anisong concert series, renown cosplayers and more exclusive merchandise than ever before. Didn’t get to attend? Fret not, here’s everything you missed from the greatest anime exhibition of the year.

Walk in and you’ll be greeted by this massive Gundam model. I don’t know about you but the sooner we get actual functional Gundams the better!

Check out this article:  Weekend activities for you this 6th April 2018 to 8th April 2018

Fans of Gunpla were also in for a treat with this huge selection. There’s even more selections at the back!

Of course, AFA wouldn’t be complete without the game taking Japan (and frankly, the world) by storm. Whether you love or hate the Gacha mechanics of the game, it’s hard to argue with Fate Grand Order’s (FGO)’s success. Staying true to the game mechanics, at the center of the exhibition was a summoning circle where fans could place their phones to summon in-game characters.

Gaming was also a huge part of AFA this year. Apart from FGO, Honkai Impact also featured a booth where players could compete in time trials. Scattered around the exhibition were also other games such as Taiko Drum Master, Touhou and even PUBG.

My favourite part of AFA though, was undoubtedly the food. It was like a taste of Japan without actually flying there!

Photo Credits: C3AFASG 2018

The Day Stage also featured a ton of prominent celebrities and guests, from Eri Sasaki (pictured) to the creators of Pop Team Epic and even famous cosplayers such as Hakken (pictured).

And this pretty much sums up AFA in one picture. It’s a celebration of all things Japan. It’s quirky, fun, and fans can be another side of themselves, even if it’s for just a day.
