10th Annual Moon Festival

There was a Moon Festival in the town that I live in. This festival was about the Chinese culture and arts, and it was a very small event. It was very small, I don't think that event organizer promoted this very well or too much. This was their 10th annual event...I have lived in the same town for 20 years and this was the first year I have known about this event. I also didn't know about this event until four days ago!

There were some vendors there, however, I can't tell you what most of them were promoting or selling. While I am Chinese, I can't read Chinese and I don't any Manderin (which was the main language/dialect spoken there). There weren't any arts & crafts or games, and there were only one vendor that was selling food. The food vendor, however, was selling Korean BBQ! How strange because the event was promoting Chinese culture.

Miss China Town was also there with one of her Princesses.

Miss China Town is the one "facing" the camera

There was plenty of live entertainment and I basically stuck to the staging area. You can see photos here:

Family Festival - October 10

I have decided to set up a booth at the family festival on Saturday, October 10 in the City of Walnut to advertise my photography service. This is a very small festival that only residents of Walnut and surrounding cities, and their friends and families would know about. There will be tons of things going on there like arts and crafts, games, food, and other entertainment including a parade and a 5K/10K race.

The 5K/10K race starts at 7am, but the actual festival will be from 10am to 7pm. If you have some free time during the hours of 10am to 7pm, please come by my table on October 10! I would greatly appreciate visits from any of you!

The festival will be located at:

Suzanne Park
625 Suzanne Road
Walnut, CA 91789

It's also located behind Suzanne Middle School.

In case you are someone reading this and you know that I am a runner, I will not be doing the 5K/10K race in the morning before the festival. I'm running a half marathon in Long Beach the next morning, and I need to rest up my legs on the day before the big race. I have set up a charity page on behalf of Train 4 Autism while I am training/running for the half marathon. If you are feeling generous, you are more than welcome to make a donation through my charity page link or you can visit my table at the festival to donate.

San Dimas Dog Park Sept. 2009

Kiko (my girl dog)

I recently took my dog, Kiko, to a dog park in San Dimas for the monthly small dog "club" meeting. While she is good at greeting other dogs, she is finally learning how to play with other dogs.

You can see more photos of her and her doggie "friends" here:
