    by Winston Chua

    POMONA – Chapagetti.It’s a little like spaghetti and a little like chajang, where the best of theEast meets the best of the West, culinary-wise, of course. This weekend, Eastmet West for more than just food.

    More than 100,000 people gathered at the Pomona Fairplexover the weekend to be a part of the Asian American Expo filled not only withfood fusions, but cars, bonsai plants, Chinese-English translation computersand more. The sheer number of people often made the simple exercise of walkingfrom here to there an obstacle course in and of itself. The Saturday and Sundayevent featured hundreds of booths from hopeful vendors willing to shell out$800 for the two-day event.

    “We expected less people to come to the event this year,”said Clare Mou, the event coordinator. “But we saw Asian consumer power goingup, and the numbers improved this year.” She represents Chinese OverseasMarketing in Rosemead.

    Christian worship bands, the Palm Springs marching band, theLaker Girls, Thai dancers, Korean dancers and an Indian fire dance were justpart of the celebration that helps usher in the Chinese New Year. In totalthere were six stages providing consumers with round-the-clock entertainment;the event was open for a total of 18 hours.

    Vendors who participated included Gyu-Kaku, Bleu StonePaving, Hire-A-Geek, Fusion Delight, Liberty Mutual, Seawolf Technologies, Inc.and various real estate brokers.

    The suped up (or pimped-out) cars at the Expo caught a fewglances, with doors that open up to the sky rather than parallel to the ground.Famous Asian beers and Asian delicacies also were popular attractions.Marketing will begin planning for the next Asian Expo in just three shortmonths.
