bon odori ipoh 2010

i have heard about bon odori in kl and penang..
but this time it was in ipoh also.

my fren ask me to join why not since im so bored.

the venue is in meru valley golf club.
require coupons to purchase food and play games.(luckily i din buy. why i said so? see below.)

i know you will be surprise to see these..
i was surprise too once i reached there..
its like pasar malam (night market)...
wtf, ipoh famous ice kacang, satay, prawn mee, tau fu fa...
it suppose to be a japanese festival celebration and turned up to a local food fair.
it has been commercialized.
unlike in kl, the venue is on a tar ground and drains surrounding, quite dangerous.
opening ceremony.
japanese martial arts.
japanese kids performing.
cute !

some events
catching golden fishes

this bon odori is quite disappointing.
the venue is not suitable, events are not related nor interesting.
crowded and received lots of negative feedback.

since its a japanese festival
so we decided to have japanese food as our dinner (supper instead, 10pm)

sushi east in ipoh garden east.
highly recommended to this restaurant since its cheap, no tax, free flow green tea for free....
saba fish bendo rm 17
unagi bendo rm 17
chicken tepanyaki bendo rm17
fruit salad
bendo comes with fruit salad, miso soup, stem egg.
fried soft shell crab rm9

58-60, Jalan Medan Ipoh 4,
Bandar Baru Medan Ipoh,
31400 Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.


  1. aiyer.
    but kl more ppl la, not to mention it's much bigger. maybe this one was targeting on locals only. at least there's sth going on in ipoh hehe.

  2. First time organising after a 6 years lapse. Should give them a chance and learn from mistakes. If all Ipohites are so negative and condemning this event, I think in the future there won't be any events held in Ipoh already. I know everybody got disappointed, but at least there's still something right?

  3. ok with small scale. but at least more japanese related rite..
    anyway appreciate it, at least we hav it in ipoh!!
