Our Saturday

We had a very long, hectic, fun-filled and tiring day today. We were out the whole day for more than 13 hours! Our day started with breakfast at Citta Mall, a new neighbourhood mall just a stone's throw away from home. This was our 3rd visit there.


Some fun facts and pictures of famous landmarks plastered all around the mall

Yay, I love this! We had breakfast at Subway, our favourite sandwich deli

After breakfast, I did some kiddy activities which I wanted to do the last time we were here but it was already too late at night. Today, we were the earliest and I was the first kid to register for all the following activities...


I did a piece of sand art for FREE... (I'm getting quite good at this)


I also painted a large sun-catcher key-chain for FREE...

... and got a cartoon character painted on my hand for FREE too. I chose Tweety Bird, which later morphed into the yellow Angry Bird after some of the yellow paint came off ;)

There were FREE popcorn and cotton candy too but I did not go for them because I wasn't interested at all. I did get one on our last visit here and it ended up in the bin...

Posing happily with my cotton candy only to dispose it later on (pic taken 2 weeks ago)

From Citta Mall, we went to The Curve/IPC/Tesco. We had some junkfood here (McD) because I wanted to collect these My Little Pony toys...

Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie from McD's Happy Meal

Later in the evening, we left for Shah Alam to attend a Japanese festival called Bon Odori. Koo-koo came with us too. This was the first time I attended such a crowded and merry event.

We arrived early at 5:30pm... the field was still quite empty

The food bazaar, on the other hand, was teeming with people...

Some of the stalls had mile-long queues, like this one behind me

We bought some Bento sets, sushis, buns and Yakult and had "dinner" at the stadium. We made a mistake of not "booking" our seats earlier so we had to stand at the back because all the seats had already been taken up.

I danced, cheered and did a lot of funny movements

The crowd


A performance

We joined the dance towards the end, just before leaving

We even went for supper before going home. It was very late when we finally reached home *Super TIRED* We brought home 4 hand-fans as souvenir...


The last time daddy and mummy attended this event was 6 years ago in 2005 (when I was not even conceived yet hehe...)

  6. Look like the Bon Odori is an interesting event to attend. May I know do they organise this every year? and how do you get to know this event? I hope to experience the occasion too one day.

  7. MTC: It's an annual event so can mark your calendar for next year ;)

    Cynthia: I was wondering who those VIP seats were for and now I know :) Bring Breanna there la, next year.

    Beii: Citta Mall is in Ara Damansara, somewhere along the old Subang airport road. The free activities are in conjunction with their new opening... until month end only, I think.

    Smallkucing: I saw your Bon Odori pics in FB but I didn't know you were in Citta Mall too. Aiya, really "mou yuen" lor...

    LittleLamb: P and C are just the opposites... what she liked, he no like and vice versa haha. Would like to try Wondermilk one day and go more often before they start charging for parking haha!

    Shenny's mommy: Ya, Bon Odori is an annual event. It's held in the Panasonic Sports Complex in Shah Alam. You can google for more information if you are interested and start making plans for next year :) I think it's held around this time of the year too.

  8. At first I thought your family of 3 spent the Saturday in Paris! I know that they have the Bon Odori in PG and JB too but I've never attended one before. Now I know how gay and lively the festival is, from your pics.
