"moon cake" night......

My parent in law quite particular about this festival, every year they will celebrate this day without fail. :) Every year we will have dinner at home, last two years, we had dinner at home just among our family, last year we invited some relatives and friends come to our house to have dinner and play lantern. This year we had steamboat for dinner, just invite some close relatives and one or two friends over. I told some of my friends, we got "lantern playing" later at
night, if they want to bring their kids over. Most of them are celebrate at home too, i only got one friend who bring her little boy to come and join us. :)

Sorry, no food picture and the steamboat. I'm too busy to enjoy my dinner and so do the photographer ( my hub!!) hahahahhahahahhahah


while i enjoy my dinner, kids had their dinner earlier then start playing lantern with my mil guiding them. My boys and their cousins.




chinese tea + moon cakes ( i only had one slice, over-eat from the dinner!!)

This is how i celebrate my "lantern" night. How is your mid autumn festival??
