Hana’s Big Day

What a day…Japanese girls in traditional Kimonos all over town, in the malls, walking the streets, on the beach, everywhere. Hana looked so damn cute, and I got to dress up (or, rather, get dressed up) in the traditional attire myself. It took somewhere around 4 1/2 hours for Hana to get ready…

After a quick lunch with the family, we all went down to the temple and then to the studio for a family photo op…

Post-photo op, we had a little fun in the sun, and then the sun went down and it was all about the karaoke ($20 all-you-can-drink, I made sure I got my moneys worth. It was a lots of fun, and a real eye-opener; I’m a lousy singer…REALLY $#%&* BAD).

And thats pretty much it, besides the clumsy actions of a Japanese Geisha

  1. You must have the camera turned sideways ’cause that CAN’T be SWEET INNOCENT LITTLE HANA laying on the cruel hard pavement…and if it is HOW COME her date didn’t save her instead of relishing in taking her picture ??? You better be careful,Hana, he obviously didn’t learn how to be a gentleman like his father !!

    Uhhhhhhhh, Dad, look at that picture…it’s priceless! I actually snapped off a whole roll whilst laughing and pointing, but I only posted the best one. Yes, I’m a jerk, just like my Dad.
