Mid Autum/Moon Cake Festival

Since the 2nd day of the 8 month of the lunar calender, the children already in the mood of celebration (during the 7th months, the children are not aloud to be out of the house at night, as it’s the ghost festival month)

Kids being kids, they love playing with fire and this is the only chance that they get to play with it. ;)

Had wanted to bring the children to walk about in the neighbourhood, carrying the lanterns, but the wind is always strong. Just a few small steps, the lights on the candles went off, and it is quite difficult for me to bend down, balancing baby in the sling and light up the candles. We gave up!!

But they have fun just playing outside the house and with the neighbour’s kids.

Baby wants to join the fun too…but all she can do is sit and watch.

This is what they actually enjoy, not so much on the lanterns.
