• The Friendship Express Announces Their Final Stop



    The Friendship Express convention happens in a little over a week,  and we have a press release to get everyone hyped up for it if you happen to be over in the area. Head on down below the break for the infos!




    Name: The Friendship Express
    Location: Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
    Venue: Recess, Sunway GEO
    Dates: 17-18 November 2018

    Press Release:

    In 2016, they announced their exit from the convention scene - only revealing the fact on a rainy November evening after the convention ended.

    Today, The Friendship Express bittersweetly announces their last hurrah - one final convention taking place this 17-18 November at Recess, Sunway GEO in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The Malaysian MLP:FiM convention is back for one final run.

    In 2017, the convention gave way to Project SEAPonyCon - the region's first effort to unite and put together their resources for a combined pony convention in Bangkok, Thailand. The Friendship Express proudly contributed to the success of this convention and returned home charged with inspiration from how friendships transcend borders and culture - leading the way for their theme for the year - Wholesomeness.



    Tickets are RM10 each and can be purchased at the door. This is a simple convention so the ticketing will be by cash only. Turn up as you are - no booking required.

    Recess is located on the 3rd floor of the Sunway GEO Mall next to a toy shop called Brick Sanctuary. Parking is abundant in the vicinity and the mall is within walking distance of the RapidKL Sunway BRT system. For those travelling from outside the Klang Valley, taking a bus to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) can connect you to the RapidKL network easily via the LRT & KTM Komuter lines.

    Be sure to hang around at the convention for both days as there will be a charity sale on Day Two. You might get a chance to bring home a piece of The Friendship Express while helping one of our founding goals - giving back to society through charity.


    For more information or to mingle with other fellow attendees, drop into Project SEAPonyCon's Discord server at http://discord.SEAPonyCon.com and look out for channels with the "Fx¹⁸" prefix. We have channels for carpooling, room sharing and just for having a casual chat. Don't be shy!

    Everyone is welcome at The Friendship Express. Aside from being a pony convention, it is an event for friendship. Bring your friends and family and anyone you know who may be interested in this quirky fandom. Join us for this celebration of friendship and community as The Friendship Express makes its final stop.

    We hope to see you there!
