Photo dump!

Awesome weekend. *dies* wheeee!!
Its a (to take Avie's phrase from Aviesbento.com) RPW!! (Random picture weekend!)

FIRST OFF my food bloggage!

My first hotpot!! I sat at the counter so its an individual thing, theres a hole in front of each person with a heat pad under it, and a pot of whatever soup base you want comes out, then each food item that you order comes out raw, then after its boiled, you dump it in, it cooks super fast (in a matter of 30 seconds to a minute or two) then enjoy!! NOMNOM. It was my first one so I accidentally ordered wayyy too much, I didn't realize how much they gave you!! X_X!! I forgot to take a pic until I was mostly done! SORRY!

Next! A pic of some random guy in Cambridge that I took a while ago.

Oh, Cambridge. You're so silly.

NEXT! This past Tuesday was Warped Tour 09! It was fun...but IT WAS RAINING ARGH. Which sucks when this all happens OUTSIDE. What that translates to? This huge music tour, 50 bands, and because we were soaked and miserable, we saw 3. *shrug* ah well...

Lannen Fall! Yay local Boston bands!

Scary Kids Scaring Kids! They played my 2 fave songs, I was happy. =D

After that, on Saturday, was the Dew Tour ISF World Skateboarding Championships. It was so much more fun than I thought I would have. We stayed from 1 until 8pm haha! We had great seats for both sessions.
First was womens and mens park. Here's the course!


It's super hard to see, (IT'S A CELL PHONE ARGHHH) but even though he wasn't competing... TONY HAWK WAS THERE!! SO COOL!
After park was vert. We stayed for the womens (dude... there was a 13 year old competing.) competition, and saw the guys practicing, but we were tired by that time, and just left. :)
This one girl was trying to land a trick that would have made her the 1st girl to ever land it in any championship ever, but when we left she had only come veeeeery close a few times. It was cool to see all the guys, Tony Hawk included, trying to give her advise. =D

And last but not least... we saw RENT last night!!!

AHHH it was so awesome! Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp playing their roles as Roger and Mark! *squee*

And that's it for now folks!!!

My weekend!!!

FINALLY THE SUN HAS COME OUT!!! This was a good weekend! =D

Saturday night Kelley and I went to the Barnstable County Fair! It was fun. We walked around and got some things, mostly fair food. (So unhealthy, so gooooood.) We saw Eddie Money. (Rocker from the 70's.) Only pic I got was of 2 of my fave birds!

Peregrine and arctic gyrfalcon!

Friday I was exploring Quincy and I saw part of Hancock St. blocked off for a street sidewalk sale type dealie lol. So I stopped and and wandered around, and brought Kelley to see it on Saturday morning. I got this cell phone charm from an Asian lady...

Why are the people crying ?! It is soy beans that pop up when you squeeze the side and are happy haha! Very cute!

Sunday I packed a picnic bento and Kelley and I took Ichigo out to a big open field near my old high school and played. :) Those pics will be up later.

My bento was in the top tier: Mini chicken gyoza. Bottom tier: Bamboo shoots, edamame, and a few candies. I had already chowed down a bit before I remembered to take a picture haha I was starving! This was my 1st time eating edamame... I like it!! =D

Also, a while ago my awesome friend Avie (aviesbento.com) sent me a bento care package!! I FINALLY TOOK PICS!!!

OK! so from top to bottom I got....
a puppy bento belt
strawberry milk tea
silicone cups to put stuff in
onigiri wraps
a beautiful furoshiki
a couple mini containers, like a mayo sauce bottle, and a little tiny square box thing
3 prong mini food picks
BOTAN candy (amazing)
and some random assortment of candies!
also some mini rilaukkuma notecards =D

THANK YOU SO MUCH AVIE!!! I'm sorry it took so long to write about! D:

Lantern Festival 2009!

Last night was the Lantern Festival in JP in Boston. (Jamaica Plain is an area in Boston.) It was.....awesome!!!

Schedule: Came at 6pm, started out by making a lantern for the launch at dusk. First on the makeshift stage was Chinese dancers, then some gospel. Then some students over here for work-study at Showa Boston from Japan did a traditional Bon Festival Dance. Awesome! Their yukatas were so beautiful as well...

After that was a traditional Balinese dance about the flirting of 2 bumblebees. And then... the main event! The Academy of Kobudo did a presentation of their Samurai Taiko Drumming and Martial Arts! It was SO COOL. I am seriously thinking about joining.

After that was the lantern launching and bagpipes to accompany.So pretty...

This whole festival I thought would be a small event, but there were SO MANY PEOPLE. It was packed! Whole families came and brought picnic lunches... aw it was so cool. I had a great time.

I took a few videos, I will be trying to upload them to my youtube, until then heres an example from last year of the same Taiko drummers group. (They do it every year.)


EDIT: see my channel for the vids i took! http://www.youtube.com/user/scarscryblood
