Lantern Festival

Yesterday, we spent a lonely Lantern Festival as Daddy was working on afternoon shift this week and will only reach homeback after midnight.

Initially, I planned to "chio" some friends for a small gathering but idea was put off since Shannon is still not feeling well. I have to thanks May for sparing us some home made delicious 汤圆! She said 月圆人团圆,must eat 汤圆 on Lantern Festivals. ^_^ Frankly speaking, this is the first time I ate 汤圆 for Lantern Festival.

Serene's father got Shannon a small battery-operated lantern too. I off the lights in the living room to create some atmosphere but Shannon would prefer the lights to be ON. After the lights was switched on, she started enjoying herself by dancing to the rythem of the musical lantern.

After a while, I am still not contented with just holding the battery-operated lantern in the house. I searched high and low for the candles and managed to find some birthday candles instead. I took some traditional lanterns given by Uncle James Chong and light it up with birthday candles, dressed Shannon with more layers of clothing and brought her to the garden to carry the lanterns. hahaha...

Hopefully, we will not be so pathetic next year... ^_^
