What is Bon Odori? Bon Odori (η›†θΈŠγ‚Š, meaning simply Bon dance) is an event held during Obon. It is celebrated as a reminder of the gratefulness one should feel toward one's ancestors. For more info go search at Wikipedia.

Actually it was my first time heard this festival and i never expect d festival was held in Malaysia every year. Being young and hot-blooded person, i m super curious and wanted to attend d event so much. Firstly for my photoshooting experience. Secondly eagerly to witness the festival. Thirdly, to learn more new road since d event was at Shah Alam.

* Your truly arthur of this blog, Jackie *

I reached there around 6.30pm, tagged along wif Kaichi, Amanda & Huiyee. I parked my car outside d road and walked all d way to d stadium. Along d way, i finally managed to see a blue sky (due to d haze, nowday hardly get to c blue sky) and nice sunset at d stadium there.

* I m trying multi layer skill...guess failed =( *

* Same goes to this one....=( *

* Another one *

* And i guess this one successed XD *

* Amanda & Kaichi, the couple of love on the air *

The performances started around 7pm wif drum performance take a lead. I am pretty frustrated due to 3 reasons. I cant get to stand in front to take pic, my lens couldn't zoom tat far and take d event pic and lastly i am too short to take pic from d back row T___T

* The drum performances *

Base on everyone comment, the Bon Odori is getting successful from year to year coz d crowd is getting more and more. I totally agreed wif it due to d crowd i facing last nite.

* Getting more crowded at night *

And d festival is interesting and it managed to attracted alot ppl to dance along wif them. And i manage to capture few interesting ppl in d dance.

* Group dance *

* Young lady *

* Younger lady *

* Sesated Devil...remind me Kristine at standout party *

* Everyone get high and raise d hand up! *
