The Fire Sisters at Bon Odori 2017

Bon Odori this year was earlier than last year's and I was glad it happened because I was able to spend Bon Odori for the first time with my second sister. My sister was back home for my first sister's wedding and the timing was just right. We call our tandem as the "fire sisters" taken from the fire sisters in the anime Bakemonogatari.

My sister really looks like a Japanese now that she has cut her hair short and spent around three years already in Japan. Most people mistook us as Japanese since they would speak in English slowly when requesting to take photos with us haha.

So these were our yukata ensembles:

This was a manual assembled obi and my sister did this for me!



The Fire Sisters. <3

We just attended the first day since the next day, my sister flew back to Japan already. Overall, the event was fun. I got to sing with the anime songs the contestants sang for the karaoke contest and the comedian trio Hapon3 were totally hilarious. :D


Hoping to enjoy my next Bon Odori again soon. :)

My Eldest Sister Is Finally Married!

My eldest sister and the eldest sibling just got married this month. She's 38 and I have a high respect for her of not giving into the pressure of my family and relatives to get married earlier. She is like my living proof that no matter what your age is, you will eventually find your true love at the perfect time. I was one of the bridesmaids and my other sister was the maid of honor. I wasn't able to give a speech during the wedding but this would probably be what I have said. I'm just too happy for her and I almost cried when she walked down the aisle but I controlled my tears because I don't want to mess up my beautiful make up.

Anyway, I would like to share some beautiful photos during the wedding. I love the color motif my sister and her husband chose; the color champagne. Also the dresses where intricately made with flowing long skirts. So here are some of the photos:

To my eldest sister, I wish you the best in your married life. I am super happy for you!
