Though, I did not want to come at first, but the feedback from one of my neighbors that attended the fair during the first week and the images online encouraged me to give it a shot. After my experience, I had to invite my brother’s kids for a two- day holiday at my place. just because I wanted them to have a feel and I am glad they did too.”
