It was a small, private event done by Make A Wish team specially for this one eighteen years old boy who has been always wanting to go to an event to meet cosplayers. He doesn't manage to go by himself because of his illness which he has gotten since birth.
I had wanted to join as the volunteer, but there was this information that said you had to go to a meeting if you want to join, and unfortunately I couldn't go. So, I told Ateen that I won't be joining the event.
However, few days before the event, Ateen told me it was okay to join, and I only had to give my ID number to her, and she would give it to the one who was responsible about this event. Apparently it was because there was not much who could come.
Anyway, on that day, Ateen and I went to the place the event was held. We had to walk about 15minutes from the monorail station; Bukit Bintang, with Kiera had to look at the map. Somehow we felt like tourists who wanted to walk around Kuala Lumpur. XD
Oh, we managed to find the hotel; one of the five stars hotels (let me tell you the acronym of the hotel; RC), and those staffs were looking at us in wonder. I bet they were wondering why there were two common-looking girls with backpack standing in front of their hotel. XD
The commissionaire and one of the valets approached us to ask us our purposes coming there. So, we told them about the event and thankfully they knew about it, and they told us the direction of the specific floor it was held.
We called the first dip for the changing room. :P
We were the first one who came so we had the changing room all by ourselves for a while XD
As we were changing, another one came. At first, we thought that person was a boy, until I heard the voice. Ateen still thought she was a boy because she didn't really hear when that girl was asking something. Nate really looks like a boy at the first glance. Really.
Oh, apparently Nakajima Seiki was also there. When he entered the room, already in his Gai outfit, I was like; "..Nakajima Seiki..?" and he was "How did you know me?". Then I told him it was because I'm his friend in Facebook already. XD
Finish transforming! _(:vzj
Had a picture with Saskeh (Nate) before we went out to the hall UvU
And Ateen, of course. OuO

All of us were given one item to give to the boy (lets call him A). Our main star was Sanji, since A loves One Piece and his favourite character of the series is Sanji. Thankfully there was someone available (Jiro-jiichwan) to cosplay as Sanji on that day. >u<
We entered the hall as a surprise for him. And how surprised he was! I could see how he tried to hold his happiness (and he was close to hyperventilating and his illness is that he has weak lungs and all of us were like "Nooooo" even though MakeAWish team already told us not to worry BUT HOW CAN WE NOT!?).
I teared up a bit when I saw how his eyes lightened up when Jiro-jiichwan came in (he as Sanji was the main star so he had to come in last). His face was glowing in happiness, and my heart just bubbled with warmth.
He wanted to eat with all of us, and so the hotel staffs had to re-arrange a table to fit all eleven of us. Of course, he sat beside hisSanji. OuO
While eating, we entertained all those children too, since A's whole family came, along with some of his best friends.
There was this 'sushi counter', and A made sushi for us. He then asked if Jiro-jiichwan would make some for him, because he has always wanted to see 'Sanji cooks in front of him'. I was standing beside A when Jiro-jichwan made the sushi, and I heard he told his friends "I think my dream has finally came true. I've no regret after this".
Damn. I teared up again.
Anyway, I decided to take selfieee with some of the volunteers who came. I wanted to take picture with those three Kamen Riders but kids were circling around them the whole time. UnU
With Elie-neesan, who cosplayed as one of the Pokemon trainers. OuO
Misao-neesan as Levi-heichoouuu.
And Elie-neesan's PokeBall photobombing at the back, XD
Ayy with Jiro-jiichwaan le Sanji >u<)/
Annndd with Seiki le Gai XD
During the whole period, there was this one little girl who at first was so cold (that we dubbed her as Uchiha Sarada) until Nate picked her up and sat her on her laps while eating lunch. I who was sitting beside Nate played with the kid for some times, and apparently we managed to break the 'ice'.
Though after that Nate had to run around the hall for the kid (and her siblings? cousins?) chased after her. XD
Then, that little 'Sarada' came to me, and tugged my sleeve that I had to kneel down to look at her. She asked me which 'princess' I was. Since I couldn't possibly explain to her that "No, I'm not cosplaying as a princess but rather blablabla" I decided to humour her and told her that I lived in a forest. Apparently she ran back to her mom and shouted that I was a Forest Princess. XD
When the event has finished, little 'Sarada' came to me again. Seeing it was our last time together, I hugged her, and she asked me to follow her back to her home. I forced my chuckles, because she insisted me to follow her, as she tugged my sleeve.
My mind was "Is this girl wanting to kidnap me?" //shot. Just kidding. XD
Then, I told her some reasons and fortunately she gave in. Misao-neesan and Elie-neesan just laughed and told me it was just an innocent invitation from a kid (which if it's made by someone older I surely will freak out)
Since the event had already finished, we decided to have some 'ice-breaking' in the changing room. So, we changed back to our normal clothes, and sat in circle, telling about ourselves. The notice on the door said the room was until 3p.m, but since the event finished way after that time, we had been given the room until whenever we wanted.
So, we hung out in the changing room until 6p.m. :v
Last picture before we went back home. XD

It was a wonderful event. Most of us were actually those people who made last-minute decision to join. However, I'm sure no one of us regret it even a bit. Getting to entertain people, getting to make someone's dream comes true, there's no regret at all.
