Just over two years ago in August 2008, Gunota Headlines, once the de-facto one-stop source for information on all things Gundam, closed down. Most Gundam fans would probably know Ngee Khiong and his eponymous blog as the unofficial successor.
Now, he too has decided to stop posting news. I got practically all my toy news from his blog almost ever since it was created. Sometimes, I even refresh his RSS feed several times a day. It’s a loss of another great source of information.
These great people are spending their own free time providing a free service to strangers with no remuneration. When they decide to stop, there is nothing better than to support their decision. After all, us readers have been supporting them for years.
So to Ngee Khiong, thank you for doing us fans a great service. Sure you may be disappointed at some, but I would be proud to be one of the many others who are grateful.
As the Japanese say, ”お疲れ様でした”. Or, “thank you for your hard work.”
