okay okay! i have got the message – the more u participate, the more fun u can get!
my life is trying to let me understand this i bet, for it keeps popping up all these goodies to show me the message just said.
so after the belly button festival (へそ祭り）in furano (富良野), i was in tsurui’s obon festival (鶴居お盆祭り). its not just a plain traditional obon festival, but a costume party as well 😀
this is the heart n tree team (two members r missing in this pix)! while the heart n tree family is always busy n working long hours, they never forget about fun. making bread is fun. teaching cooking class is fun. n having a booth selling pizza n chicken in the festival, of course, should be fun too!
i m just one lucky girl who always get hooked up with all these fun loving ppl! 😀
the two sexy “ladies” n the purple head monkey
the kiss crazy froggie n rabbit
N the best custome award goes to… (drum roll…) the anpan man team! (n the monkey just ran up n took pix with them haha )
fyi, the anpan man (red bean bun man), is a very popular cartoon in japan.
“i thought the belly button festival was over? no? ” the monkey puzzled… 🙄
we sold everything that nite!
then firework! not a very big firework show but becuz its so close (n i went up to the front too), the effect was great! w burnt paper of the firework dropping on ur face (umm… not sure if u want that though hehe )
can u believe it? we won the fourth place! cash price too! besides all the fun!, i also got 5000 yen for doing nothing but just having fun! wahahaha 😛 (masato san n sachiko san were very nice that they just let the monkey wondering around, taking pix instead of always staying in the booth selling pizza n curry to customers 😉 )
