8 月15 日 - Mid Autumn Festival

Last Saturday night, the City Park, S2 held a Mid-Autumn celebrations. We thought, why not bring the kids to have some fun.

Not a fun place for us anyway. It was crowded. Hot. And the kids were running non-stop. Gosh! Hubby and I surrendered and said this is going to be our 1st and the last visit to such event. LOL !

The decorations were very nice with lots of mini red lanterns being hang all around the park. Many people brought their kiddos and own lanterns to the park. Some even brought those traditional type - paper and candle. I can't imagine if somebody were to accidentally knock onto the little kid and am sure the lantern will be on fire ! Remember, the park was CROWDED!

Since both my parents were in Seremban over that weekends, we invited them along. My brother brought nephew JS along too. It is not a very nice place to chat but a nice place to see those beautiful lanterns. Dad and mum could hardly hear what we said and vice versa. LOL. Not until we walked further in (away from the crowd and stage), we were able to chat for a while. The doting grandparents bought 2 battery operated lanterns for the kids.

YX with his train lantern (but with Hindi songs) LOL !

XJ with her car lantern (with traditional Chinese song).

Both kids enjoyed holding their lanterns around the park with the music blasting loudly. Back at home, I quickly pasted a thick PVC tape over the speaker to lower down the music. Hubby even suggested to cut the wire which I disagreed as they can still use the lanterns next year with the music ON (if the kids did not destroyed the lanterns) !


  1. LOL!!! They have such sophisticated lanterns these days...not like our paper accordion lanterns with a candle inside...

  2. XJ's car lantern is cute! hehe..
    Lake Garden Taiping is the must-go place every year during this time, pack with people, lanterns, candles and fireworks!

    Wishing you and your family, Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

  25. I remember seeing the same THomas and Friends lantern that YX was's selling in Giant as well. I almost wanted to buy it for Juan Or, luckily didn't buy becos I don't think hubby or even Juan Or will like lanterns to be matched with Hindi songs.

  26. first time for me seeing the Thomas lantern too. seems a nice place to visit especially the very traditional decoration :)

  27. Hindi song? That's really weird n funny! :D
