During my presence here in Hobart, Tasmania of Australia, Danny Choo went to Malaysia (my birthplace in this mortal world) for some business and personal time with his family. The Tokyo Dancing Trooper also happens to be the son of Jimmy Choo, the designer! Both the parents of DC (Danny Choo) originated from Malaysia but moved to the UK and there is where DC was spawned onto this mortal world, we call Earth! According to DC, it was 15 years since the last time he actually came back to see his parents. Imagine that! Wonder if i would ever go thru that phase in my lifetime.
Danny Choo arrived in Kuala Lumpur and was greeted by fellow otakus and twitter followers at the KLIA. DC came to Malaysia with a couple of missions:
- Meet his parents and spend some time with them
- Meet otakus
- Business to possibly set up a branch business in Kuala Lumpur (Possible? If it happens i will blog about it in later posts anyways)
He visited KL but also made a day trip back to Penang for a couple of hours by plane, but unlike his KL arrival, he snuck pass the otaku squad that was waiting for him. Maybe due to needing personal time with family! Its the logical thing to do when coming to visit the land of your parents or ancestors.
Sad for me was i didn’t get to be there to be part of the welcoming group in Kuala Lumpur. I would have worn the armor with a red banchou armband and welcome him with a white signboard written “WELCOME TO MALAYSIA DANNY CHOO”. Fearing i would miss most of the trips he would make to Malaysia during my presence here in Australia, 2 otaku comrades got involved in helping me get a signature from the Tokyo Dancing Trooper himself!
Thanks to Master Chief (Gixxer) for helping getting the Lucky Star Bathroom Poster from Little Akiba (KL), Solomon Freeman aka WiseFreeman for setting up the meetings and plans with Danny Choo and the other otakus, and also Kururugi Seiryuu for this picture he sent to me via MSN indicating that the signing mission by Master Chief Gixxer has been accomplished! =)
