  1. Great final percent post Duyen, I liked the pictures you used to express the words more. I also liked the video it was easy to read and shown neatly. Although I didn't really get the concept of the hello kitty cake.

  2. Great job Duyen. Your final post looks very neat and you used colors very well. Your pictures were also good especially the Hello Kitty one. Your videos were also really great.
