A little bit of everything through the lens.

Houston Japan Festival (16)

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 by , under ,

I just realized I forgot to post these photos taken at the Annual Japan Festival in Houston's Herman Park last month. Thanks to funmama for letting us know about this event.

It's an event organized by the Japan-America Society of Houston for people to experience the Japanese culture. It's spring, with the mild weather, we will go to any outdoor events, especially one with food, ha! Too bad I didn't take any photos of the food, I was hungry...

My Fish
Little lady in red.

I will catch you!
Other than foods and performances, games like this are available to entertain kids at the event. Kids are supposed to catch the fish with paper net, easy right?

Asahi beer promoter - is that a gesture telling me to stop taking photos of her? Hmmm...

Kick back...

Sea of people...

Family Fun

好怀念Herman Park,尤其是那一年的国庆烟花。
我在考虑今年是不是要带小洁去Kansas找我哥⋯⋯ 还是先更新护照和申请visa再说吧。

Wow!It's all about food, kimono girls and colourful decorations.

We have the similar Bon Odori in Malaysia but there is no beer promoter. Asahi beer tastes just good, I really miss it.

温馨小屋 - 小孩?! We can't even take care of ourselves, I doubt we can take care of a 小孩, hahaha...

Petite Tish - We still missed you all here in Houston, plan a trip to Houston too, I will make sure its a fun trip for you all!

Nancy - I did 拍个不停 hahaha...

jdexign - I have no idea there's Bon Odori in Malaysia, maybe I hardly go out much, ha! The Asahi girl is actually giving out free beer but too bad I don't drink, such a waste.

Sonia - My wife is my #1 美女 always, that being said, she don't mind me looking as long as I don't touch, hahaha...

米亚 - Houston could be fun if you seek out all the fun activities around town. I like the last photo too, I took many photos of that family because they look so happy together but only 1 turn out good.

Bakeling - The girl in that photo sure knows how to enjoy.

Happyland - She's just so cute, too bad I don't have more photos of her.

pretty little cute jp gal ah!!


Pei on June 4, 2009 at 12:45 AM

I don't think it is easy to catch fish with the paper net? Was it easy for you, Colin? BTW are you a professional photographer?


Colin Woon on June 4, 2009 at 12:52 AM

Faye fly - She is, too bad I only manage take 1 photo of her.

Pei - I didn't play that fish catching game, though I would like to but then I will be the only adult playing, hahaha...

No, I'm not a professional photographer, I wish I'm that good, ha!
