Christmas at Malaysia 100 Doraemon Expo

100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo @ Johor City Square

Yes, I finally had the chance to make my way down to the 100 Doraemon Expo! I missed my chance 2 years ago in Hong Kong, and the previous time when it first opened, but third time’s the charm! I was invited down across the bridge to celebrate the Christmas Party with all the other Malaysian celebrities!
100Doraemon1So for those who are still unaware, the 100 Doraemon Secret gadgets Expo is at Johor Bahru City Square which is DIRECTLY connected to the Malaysia Customs! The Expo is so nicely decorated with Doraemon’s signature blue and yellow that it can’t be missed!

100Doraemon2Before entering, I managed to catch a sneak photo of what it is like inside the Expo. I was a little disappointed to be honest, to see how “small” the exhibition was. Will it be worth the money then? So I shall check it out and show you guys see if it’s worth the trip!

What I thought The Expo is About

100Doraemon6From the top view, I thought this was all they’ve got. So it’s an exhibition with 100 pieces of Doraemon and its different gadgets? That’s ALL?!

What It’s Actually ALL About

100Doraemon11There is actually more than JUST 100 Doraemon! Along the same concept as “Alive Museum”, 100 Doraemon Expo is a mini maze that brought me through the life story of Doraemon, starting from the moment it is manufactured 98 years from now in 2112, to how it became ear-less and blue, to its life with Nobita Nobi and friends.

100Doraemon9You can even try to be part of the manga and do your own expression! I was so wrong about the whole expo being “JUST” Doraemon! It’s actually entering its world with all the forever young friends!

100Doraemon3Besides that, there are classrooms where you get to attend lesson with Doraemon as well as to attend Nobita Nobi and his childhood crush, Shizuka Minamoto’s wedding!

100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo Photo Hunt

100Doraemon10Besides taking photos, you can stand to win a personalized limited Christmas edition Touch ‘n Go card (with your name!) by taking picture of yourself at selected locations in the expo, post it up on your Facebook Page with hashtag #100DoraemonPhotoHunt OR tag @DoraemonMalaysia and stand to win exclusive prize!

Meet Doraemon and friends in person!

100Doraemon7I guess this is what gets most fans really excited. Doraemon and friends will be visiting the expo daily (except Mondays) at 1pm, 3pm, 4pm & 7pm. It’s actually pretty amazing to see this childhood characters interacting with people in the expo. It was as if I was transported by Doraemon into its world!
100Doraemon8Nobita Nobi, Shizuka Minamoto, Takeshi “Gian” Goda, Suneo Honekawa and Doraemon are there 4 times a day to play with everyone! I love how they are bigger than life size! It’s simply too cool to be seeing them after so many years of watching them in comic books and cartoons!

Also Look Out for:

  1. Waaah when is doraemon going to go back to Malaysia? Or Singapore? 🙂 I am set to visit Singapore still in August also Malaysia. Tsk tsk tsk. I’m one Doraemon fan. I even watched Doraemon even when I’m already in college. Haha I just can’t get enough of the fun the show gives me everytime I watch it. Plus it makes me remember my childhood days.haha

  2. What I like about this exhibition is that it takes you through the life story of Doraemon, starting from the year it was manufactured and reaching even the year 2112! It is amazing that you can also create your own manga story which seems like so much fun!

  3. I missed it much. I visited the one at KL. Since it is the same thing, but different place. I don’t think i will visit again.

  4. Oh wow I’m sure a Doraemon fan. I’ve been watching the cartoons episodes and reading the comic books since we were little. Huhu unfortunately, I’m no longer living in Singapore. I would want to go to that pop-up store. 🙁

  5. You seem like you had fun!! Its a great experience! Thanks for sharing it with us! Btw I loved the selfie you took! 😀

  6. I love the black and white sketches. I re-read what you have written: 98 years from now in 2112. You were talking about the future! What a cool concept. -katrina centeno

  7. There are more grown ups enjoying this event than kids. My kid bro would have really enjoyed this had it happened about six years ago when we used to visit Malaysia from Singapore!

  8. i quite like doraemon (who doesnt?) but i don’t think i will go over to JB just for that. but the luggage bag! there’s a contest on fb to win that now, for their stand by me movie. i so wanna win it!
