In Ottawa for Asian Heritage Month

Two Sundays ago, literally hours after the fundraising dinner mentioned in the previous post ended, we were on a 4-hour road trip from Toronto to Ottawa! Whooo! Actually we weren’t that energetic at the time. On Sunday May 30, 2010, Ontario’s Vietnamese Canadian community celebrated Asian Heritage Month in Ottawa, Canada’s capital.

We held a parade, and a short ceremony with some văn nghê,̣ too. It was a nice afternoon.🙂 Somehow my friend and I ended up parading in traditional clothing. Yes, totally unexpected… haha.😛
