Last time, my friends and I went there to enjoyed the Bon Odori 2008. I enjoyed to buy the imported food and drinks from Japan. I also bring my family to join too.
After that, my Deaf friends joined in and want to see what's in the Bon Odori Festival in 2009! I remembered that many Deaf friends take photo on me because I am wearing kimono! Haha. They sure never forget this memories and always ask me to wear loh when the Bon Odori Festival are coming ~
