Now over at Puente Hills Mall at Round 1
Sandra and Rina always go here to play the Japanese claw aka UFO catcher machine so I was super happy to go here cause I LOVE UFO catchers!! lol Round 1 is Japanese arcade and sports amusement center, opened its first USA chain store right here in this mall ^__^
