Happy Mid Autumn Festival!









Mid Autumn Festival, normally we will have family dinner than eat moon cakes and play lanterns. All the years we are do it the same way, nothing special.

Yesterday after work, i rush to a nearby supermarket thought want to get a lantern for my boys(ya, this year, bad mummy didnt buy any lantern for them to play). We suppose to get the spiderman lantern from Mines Shopping centre last sunday, after the "sight seeing" to Mines Wonderland. But but but, we totally forgot about it.Last minute want to get a nice lantern is very hard. End up i just get them those plastic lantern with chicken character.

After dinner, everyone get together-gether sit outside the house, kids play with lanterns and adults helping them to light up and put up the lantern nicely. And at the same time, eat moon cakes & fruits and some tibits. This year i dont even had a bite of the moon cake.I'm not the moon cake fans. hahahahah..i only like Haagen Daz Moon cake!!!!

Kids are really had fun, my two boys definetly enjoy themselve so much by running and shouting and playing with the cousins. This is the time that i don't scold them for running and screaming. They really play to the max, with the hair all wet and sweating! Bath them and change them around 9.30pm, they look really tired and had a good night sleep till this morning. And two of them had a "big cry" early this morning, maybe play too much last night? :(

Hope everyone do have a wonderful night! And Happy Belated Mid Autumn Festival to everyone!
