September is here!
Update 28 Jan 2016
September is here and never fear, Jungceylon Shopping Center is already in the clear! While the rain has not slowed down, things are heating up inside this Phuket mall with various promotions and discounts always on hand.
But we said goodbye to August on a FANTASTIC note! A couple of Chinese tourists made Jungceylon a place for their own personal memories.
A Chinese man dressed up as Baymax, the giant lovable character from the Japanese anime and subsequent Disney film Big Hero 6, and walked around the Jungceylon Port Arena. He walked up to his girlfriend and then surprised her by taking off the costume, getting down to one knee, popping out a ring and asking for her hand in marriage! >> Link
She said yes and dozens of on-lookers celebrated for the happy, newly-engaged couple. Memories of a lifetime, made at Jungceylon!
Speaking of dressing up as Japanese cartoon characters, the annual Japan Pop Culture Cosplay Festival 2015 took place last week! Literally hundreds of people attended the four-day event, which took place from September 12-16 all over the Phuket shopping center in Patong. Several activities were planned with the themese of anime and gaming in mind.
The annual event is a favorite for several reasons: its hilarious to watch people dress up and take this seriously, cash prizes are given out, and if youre a photo junkie this is the event for you! Here are a few videos to see what past contestants have done!
Two anime and gaming themed cosplay competitions (costume contests) took place.
