Matsuri Japon 2010  
I went to the Japanese Festival that was held in Montreal a few days ago~! (Sat., August 14th, 2010)

I had a lot of fun~! But the amount of people at the festival was insane!! And the lines for the food stalls were insanely long!! Especially for the takoyaki~! You would think that at a festival there would be an army of people to make the takoyaki and more than one stall making the takoyaki... But no... There wasn't an army... *sighs*

Oh! And we got water yo-yos~! I was really really happy~! This whole time, I didn't know that they were balloons filled with water... We had to go "fish" for them in the pool of water :3 Luke grabbed the easiest one (which he later regretted because his didn't have sufficient amount of water in it and it didn't bounce as high as ours).  I kinda rolled mine until I saw the loop to hook it... And Tessa's kleenex on the hook broke because she touched the water so she used mine when I finished with it. So essentially, Tessa and I cheated ^^;; But at least we were happy with ours... Unlike Luke, who didn't cheat XP Mine's the purple one on the far left~! Tessa's is yellow and the other purple one is Luke's~!

Mine's the pretty purple one on the far left~!

At the height of the festival (meaning when there were way too many people), the three of us left and had mochi :3 I had green tea mochi <3 NYAM~! We ate them all before I took a picture ^^;; Since we were at the Old Port in Montreal, we went to the S.O.S. Labyrinthe. It's basically a really BIG maze and you have to gather clues in the maze to solve a mystery or to save the world. In our case, it was to save the world!! Not only did we get horribly lost in the maze... But the three of us failed to save the world... I'm sorry that we've condemned you all... m(_ _;)m I was happy that the questions were different from the last time I went and the maze pattern was different as well!! Despite no photography being allowed, I snuck a picture (I couldn't get the French one, I'm sorry ^^;;) Can you guess what this clue is?



Eventually we went back to the festival and bought stuff to eat :3 We had shaved ice (I had vanilla flavor <3) and we braved the line for the takoyaki (they also had okonomiyaki, but I know how to make that at home)... There were so many people!! But the three of us were able to get it in the end... I will not tell you how *coughs* That will remain a secret between the three of us... This whole time, my friend Tessa thought that the takoyaki sauce was chocolate sauce and the colored toppings were sprinkles... In other words, a dessert (she forgot there was tako [octopus]) in it :3 So I mocked her just as she did with me when I didn't know about the water yo-yos! I also had gyudon~! (Because of ひみつの嵐ちゃん) NYAM~!

Afterwards, we walked around the area in search of ice  cream before the fireworks festival~! I had cookie dough and pralines  & cream <3 In one hand we were playing with our water yo-yos and  in the other we were eating our ice cream :3 And the sky was really  pretty too!!<br /><br /><<img width=

We were able to find a vacant bench (in which we all shuffled to really quickly because we wanted to sit down) *cackles* The fireworks were really really pretty~! The pictures that I'm posting doesn't do it justice... But it occurs to me that it's really hard to take pictures of fireworks... But one of these days, I'll be able to take pretty fireworks pictures!! *is determined*











たまや~! かぎや~!

私の一つの祭りが終わりました~!楽しかったですよ~!
