Just before Bon Odori

First of all, let wikipedia me explain what is Bon Odori is all about.

Bon Odori
(盆踊り, meaning simply Bon dance) is an event held during Obon. It is celebrated as a reminder of the gratefulness one should feel toward one's ancestors.

Then some of you will ask, "what the heck is Obon?"

Obon (お盆) or just Bon () is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors.

Ok? Somehow Bon Odori event come to Malaysia

In Malaysia, Bon Odori Festivals are also celebrated every year in Penang and at the Matsushita Corp Stadium in Shah Alam, Selangor. This celebration, which is a major attraction for the state of Selangor, is the brain child of the Japanese Expatriate & Immigrant's Society in Malaysia. In comparison to the celebrations in Japan, the festival is celebrated on a much smaller scale in Penang and Selangor, and is less associated with Buddhism and more with Japanese culture. Held mainly to expose locals to a part of Japanese culture, the festival provides the experience of a variety of Japanese food & drinks, art and dance.
(HOW can they forgot "Johor".....)

Just by chance, I saw a banner outside this Japanese restaurant at Johor Bahru, saying that Bon Odori will be held on 1st Nov. I was rushing that day and did not pay attention the details on the banner. What I know was its called "Bon Odori", its on "1st Nov" !!!
I told myself, "I can search all the details on Internet"
But ALAS, I found nothing! Except the Wikipedia extract, no website, no email, no phone number, nothing, me you, i lek. Bad marketing strategy. I think, without wikipedia, I dont even know what is Bon Odori!

okok, "patience my apprantice". I think Im going to go down to Johor bahru tomorrow to get the details. Argh! If I happen to see Japanese Expatriate & Immigrant's Society president, Im going to tell him how to do proper marketing.

"Hello, brother, first of all this is Malaysia! Even tough here technology is not as advance as your country, but we still use internet! Get a "searchable" website for God sake (not sake)"
