Do friends' birthdays mean lots to you, as it does to me? I have no idea from when onwards my friends and I took birthdays pretty seriously besides the usual birthday cake and song, as you can see in the following examples:-

i) For friend A's birthday, we did a really touching (at least I think so) movie clip of individual happy birthday wishes from every class member, happy birthday song that was sung together when my other friend "took her to the toilet", plus some camwhoring pics... and it was put up on the big screen (projector) in class with the lights off... it was oh so romantic!

ii) For friend B's birthday, we blew balloons and filled them up with our wishes to her (they were pieces of paper), so to see the messages she had to pop them... and the funny thing was when we popped some of the balloons at the Inti Subang cafeteria, the uncle working there got a shock and even thought there was an explosion... sorry ah uncle :P

iii) Last but not least, for friend C's birthday we got her the guy she had been liking since primary school to pass the birthday cake to her personally plus give her a birthday present! btw they had been out of contact since form 3 but my friend still liked him... and we managed to find the guy with just 2 pieces of information: his name and his college. Amazing, huh? we couldn't believe it ourselves when we managed to get to him and he was willing to come... one of the most satisfying things that I have ever done in life.. :)

As for the other friends who have upcoming birthdays, we are scheming... and i mean really scheming... don't worry...

Eh. but i'm worried for my birthday le. (which happens to be on 3rd october, fyi...)

Bon Odori 2008 (Part 3)

Is it weird to attend the Bon Odori festival, take pics and movies, then upload them onto the PC all on the same night? I sure hope it doesn't make me a person with no life outside the blogosphere :P

Just fyi, Bon Odori is actually a Japanese Buddhist Festival celebrated annually to honour the dead... but has pretty much evolved into a cultural event, and is estimated to bring about up to 30,000 each year! Pretty amazing huh?

Well there were no flyers or announcements about this event at ICSJ so I thought there would be not much people who would know about it... but it seems that Taylors and Inti Nilai even have transport from the colleges to the Panasonic Sports Complex where the fest is held! Talking about good service...

These are some (of the many) pics to fill you in... in case I'm boring you out...

~Let the dance begin! We were actually encouraged to follow suit so all of us danced like weird ducks with fans at the bottom of the stage~

~Ooh another 2 cuties! We look so large... and old...*sob*~
~I still remember the kid in the middle rolled his eyes and he must have muttered something similar to "here they come again" when we wanted to take pics with them~
~just a teensy tiny portion of what the crowd really looks like~
~we just love taking pics with cute little japs don't we? :P~
