Then let’s split up and buy our stuff. – Where do we meet back? / – 6 p.m. Let’s meet at that big gold thing. – In front of the Sule Pagoda. / – Okay. – I’ll go this way. / – Okay, you go that way. – See you later. / – See you. They’re setting up the stage for the Thingyan Festival tomorrow. (The street is busy as if the festival has begun) I think this is a popular place. How much? The restaurants will be closed, so I bought in advance. In case you run low on sugar. You bought in advance. I don’t think there’s much to accumulate. This is what we call emergency food. (She easily got emergency food ready) (Great!) (This encounter is meant to be) – It’s cilantro. / – Isn’t that cilantro? The fish is immersed in cilantro. – That sauce looks delicious. / – It was so delicious. – Right? / – Yes. Totally good. It’s the perfect mix. (She can’t walk by the street food) It’s good. (I’ll eat first and then get ready) What are these? They’re water guns. So I put this around my neck and dance like this. Is this the most powerful one? This one doesn’t look bad either. They have something like this too. (Surprised) My goodness. Look at this. This is the best one. I’ll defeat the water goddess. Got it. I’ll destroy everyone. This and the dustpan. I’m looking for a water gun and a waterproof bag. It’s so pretty. (These flowers are so pretty) What is this? Hello, I’m Sandara. Goodness. Isn’t that hilarious? My goodness! This is amazing! You can shoot really far with this. – That’s not a water gun. / – It’s good. Give me that one. I should buy that one. (Ayoung heads to Sule Pagoda) – Huh? / – Ayoung. What is this? What is this? This is the weapon I’m going to use tomorrow. Is it? That’s amazing. – Isn’t it great? / – Is it just a regular dustpan? They must spray water with this too. Wait a minute. Hey! – What’s wrong? / – Hey, wait a minute. Unbelievable. Let me see. I can carry this around. Are you here to farm? That’s Sojin’s water gun. Is it a water gun? – Hey. / – Isn’t it amazing? It shoots really far and sprays water everywhere. – Show me yours. What did you buy? / – No… I just bought one dustpan. Let me see. It matches our firefighter theme. You can’t keep pumping like this. Your arms will hurt. Well, I thought this was a good idea when I bought it. Forget it. We should enjoy it. It’s a bit… You’re right. It’s a bit lame. You have a dustpan shield and a water gun. It’s a warzone. That’s a cute water gun. Compared to us. They’re so nice. I don’t think so. They don’t look so nice now. She’s angry. Ayoung is a little upset. (It really stands out) Isn’t that it? She holds it with her feet. It must be very powerful. Is it? (It really stands out) (It will soon be unveiled) – Shall we go now? / – So we bought water guns. – We bought food as well. / – Right. I think it’s this way. There were many cute and interesting things. Lots to see. (It’s the morning of Thingyan Festival) (Where are Sojin and Ayoung now?) Don’t you think this is unfair? You’ll beat everyone. It’s going to shock everyone. Isn’t it awesome? It doesn’t look like it’ll shoot with pressure. – Doesn’t it spray like a fountain? / – It’ll spread out. You can adjust the nozzle to shoot straight. That’s amazing. That’s going to be so strong. I think you’re going to be a star in Myanmar. My dream is to be Iron Man. Like this. (What a funny friend) So pretty. Let’s get ready to go out. – Amazing. / – So pretty. It’s already started. What is that? I wish I had something like that. They have lots of the latest equipment. They’re so prepared. It’s already started. It goes for the entire day. It starts at 7 a.m. It’s different since they’re the original festival. I thought your festival was more upgraded. They just gather in one place… – And spray. / – It’s upgraded. (Preview of Thingyan Festival) There’s the main street where this festival is held. Do we have to go there now? This is the street. We’re soon near Sule Pagoda. – Is that it? / – Yes. People are riding trucks there. That’s how they splash water at each other? They carry buckets full of water on the truck. There are a lot of festivals. It must be festival season in Southeast Asia. Laos also has a water festival. Myanmar has one too. – Cambodia. / – There are so many water festivals. It looks fun. The original water festival is Myanmar. Lots of people go to Songkran because it’s the most famous. – Where’s the original? / – Myanmar. (Thingyan literally means to splash water) (Songkran Festival is the most famous) (But the original is the Thingyan Festival in Myanmar) The original is Myanmar. (They celebrate for 4 days before New Year’s) It’s a big festival. (Everyone gets together and unites) It’s a rainbow. They have a proper stage there. Yes. (It’s the original water festival) You just shoot water at everyone. I didn’t have time to reload my water gun. Where are we, Sojin? (This is Thingyan Festival) We’re on a battlefield. – It’s from here? / – Yeah. (Preview of Thingyan Festival) If you’re not on the main street, you don’t get wet? No, you still get wet. But the main street is… – The real fight. / – The main stage. (People are enjoying the water festival) So that’s how they splash water. That’s not the main street. – That’s not the main street? / – No, it’s not. That’s just a preview. – Are you ready? / – Wait a minute. They keep shooting Ayoung. Isn’t she the best kind of person to fool around with? – She’s got good reactions. / – She does. If you just stare after getting splashed, they’d stop. So mischievous. – She reacts so well. / – What’s going on? Where’s the water? Find the water. I don’t even know where it’s coming from. I found water. (This is the pool Sojin was looking for) (Pools are everywhere on the side street) I found water. (How dare you want my water?) Timeout! Timeout! I surrender. (No mercy) That girl… She jumped in the air. (She hurries over to the pool) You’re so dead. They really didn’t think much of us. You don’t have much water. That’s why the children gave water to us. (The people don’t wait for them to fill up) (Help me, Ayoung) It’s really like that. People keep pouring water on you while you fill your water gun. Ayoung is angry. She looks like she could faint. This was my secret weapon. This is the best. I’ll beat everyone with this. What will you do about this? (She excitedly defends Sojin) Where did it go’? It was too heavy. Ayoung is pretty clumsy, isn’t she? She’s so funny. – I thought she was smart. / – Me too. I didn’t know she was this funny. – She’s so clumsy. / – The children kept attacking us. That’s right. (She lost her dustpan) (All she can rely on now is Sojin’s water gun) Don’t shoot into my nostrils. – Did you fill it in? / – Yes, they’re so dead now. Her water tank is finally full. Yes, it’s full now. – Hey. / – Isn’t this too incredible? It shoots very far and sprays a lot. I think you’ll beat everyone. Bring on all of Myanmar. It’s full now. Why won’t it work? – It doesn’t work. / – You should pump it first. (They’re both flustered by their weapons of choice) They’re in big trouble. I was so flustered. I was so thankful to her. You need to pump it. That’s the girl that sprayed you with gusto earlier. – It’s the one that flew in the air. / – That’s right. But it’s like that there. The enemies become your allies. – You have fun and you help each other out. / – Right. (Water goddess pumps fiercely) (Why won’t the water come out?) Did you just laugh at me? Did you just laugh at me? (She pumps hard to take revenge) Look at her use her feet. Primates are good with their feet. That’s so secure. – She’s grabbing with her feet. / – Yes. She’s grabbing it with her feet. (Filled with bloodlust) Does it work now? Go! Why won’t it work? I can’t wait to see it working. You, come here. What is going on here? It’s like she’s holding a water tank. – They got owned. / – What is that? They don’t just use water. They spray foam. – And all sorts of stuff. / – That’s right. Goodness. You provided lots of laughs for the people of Myanmar. It’s completely useless. You can’t use any of the equipment you prepared. I surrender. This had better be a good year for me! (Thingyan Festival will wash away your misfortune) They really blessed us. We were really blessed. They say, “Happy New Year” as they spray you. The festival has started in the main street. Wasn’t this it? It’s just begun? – The real deal is still left. / – What? Not this? – Are you okay? / – Do I look okay to you? Let’s go. They’re going back? – To the main street. / – That wasn’t the main street. Now the practice is over, you’re going to the main street. You already look exhausted. Without any weapons. I can’t pull myself together. Should we ask if we could ride on the truck? You want to ride that? It’s so hot that you dry up after a short walk. – It was same for us. / – Can we get on? – You dry up after a short while. / – It’s so hot. Is it safe? Do we sit here? They were a big family. – They drive by the street? / – Yes. This is good. This is really worth trying. That’s like going through a car wash with the doors open. (Excited) They splash you as they say hello. It’s great if you can get a ride like us. But even if you can’t, you can rent it for $100 a day. (Main street of Thingyan Festival) Wow. Amazing. This is amazing. My gosh, I’m so excited! This looks incredible. It looks amazing indeed. What we had before was nothing. We’re now really going to the water festival. – I’ll protect you, Ayoung. / – I’ll destroy them. – You defend, I’ll attack. / – Okay. (People won’t stop pouring water at each other) I hear EDM. (The music excites Sojin and Ayoung) It’s so cold. We’re now in the main stage. – That’s still not the main stage. / – Not yet. It’s coming up. There’s a traffic jam here. Do you see that? From both sides… – It’s like art. / – That’s pretty. – It’s a water cave. / – They use hoses. Here we go. We’re going in. Everyone, welcome to the real water world. You just get soaked in there, right? You go to get soaked. That’s right. We’re going in now. This is nothing. – Really? / – Yes. It’s different there. (This is just the beginning of the main street) (Will they make it out alive?) (The stream of water become stronger) You need goggles in there. I know. (Street entrance, 5 seconds later) (Ayoung and Sojin are out of it) (Ayoung and Sojin are out of it) – It hurt a bit. / – I got pushed around by the pressure. It was so strong. This reminds me of the cold waterfall in public baths. The water spurts out. – You have that in women’s baths too? / – It feels good. – I thought it was only in men’s baths. / – We have it too. (This is just the start) I caught the water from the back and splashed it to the front. That’s rash. You’ll get soaked even more. – It’s a true festival. / – It is. – They’re dancing. / – It’s like the World Cup. – You’re right about that. / – Right? So much passion there. (Thingyan brings everyone together) I see a rainbow! – Right, we saw a rainbow. / – There was a rainbow. (The heat and cold water created the rainbow) It’d make you feel like you’ll have good fortune. – After all that blessing. / – You’re right. We were soaked in blessings. (The rainbow moves with you) I felt a sense of relief after being soaked. – Right. You do feel that. / – Right? It felt like a deep cleanse.
