Mooncakes Festival 2011

Birthday girl in her birthday dress. By the way, she is not allowed to climb like this at home.
On the 12 September, we had a mini party at home to celebrate the Mooncake Festival. FIL suggested to have dinner outside and I took this opportunity to dress up my little princess in her Birthday dress.

lanterns
 After dinner, we set up the tables and lit up the lanterns. It was drizzling that night, thus no moonlight.

nuts and yams
 MIL steamed some peanuts, 'sai kok' and some mini yam for us to munch.

Pamelo and jelly mooncakes
 We also had pamelo and jelly mooncakes. Some of the jelly are given by relatives and some are homemade by MIL.

MIL's homemade jelly mooncakes with red bean fillings

soya bean milk and tau fu fa
 Earlier, SIL went to the pasar malam and bought some soya bean and 'tau fu fa'.


pre-packed tang yuan
Hubby did his part too..... he cooked 'tang yuan' where we bought the frozen packed type from the hypermarket. Taste quite good. We had the red bean and black sesame fillings.

ginger soup
 Hubby also boiled some ginger soup for the tang yuan..........yummy!

yummy delicious tang yuan
tang yuan in soya bean.
Since we have the soya bean milk, we added into the tang yuan. It was delicious to eat this way too.

As for me, I'm in charged in clearing up the mess after the mini party, and ...........

Kids with Angry Bird lanerns
 ......... accompanied the kids to play with the lanterns. Did yo noticed YX was in his pyjamas ?

I'm sick but still active !
Well, because he was having a slight fever that night. But he is all well now. Must be the bad weather these days making his body too heaty...

Famous among the kids at all age !
SIL bought this Angry Bird lanterns for the kids. We had a very simple yet enjoyable Mooncake Festivals that night. Both kids slept at around 11 pm which is consider very late for them. Hope you have a memorable Mooncake Festival too !
