the night of the lanterns :)

Let's swop lanterns!

Came home early today so that I could bring the not-so-wee one downstairs to walk around with his lantern. Mom-in-law was the one who bought him the spiderman lantern...it came with the awful cheena music of coz! Gave up figuring how to mute it..Thought I could endure it for just one day! Aidan didn't seem to like the lantern much though..he was dragging it on the floor and most of the time, he tried to chuck it in a corner when we weren't looking :P

Arranged to meet Rachel sonday & Ryan downstairs. The management of the condo had decorated the swimming pool area with pretty little lanterns and it looked quite nice. There were many other parents and kids with their battery operated [awful] music lanterns..Was kinda noisy with all the different music playing at the same time. Ryan was carrying this cute li' doggy lantern and Aidan was immediately attracted to it. He kept on pointing at it and was quite happy when Rachel let Ryan carry those traditional candle lantern coz it meant he could pounce on the doggy lantern. The li' bugger was also intrigued by the paper lanterns and kept on wanting to touch the source of light..Couldn't let him carry them because he'll definitely end up burning himself, knowing how inquistive he is..

Here's some pics :)

Aidan walking Spidey..

Ryan and his doggy lantern..

The 2 boys with their lanterns :)

Another one with flash this time..

Mommies and our kiddos


Hmm..i forgot..why do people carry lanterns during the mooncake festival? Wanted to tell Aidan the story and realised that I have no freaking idea..gah!

Anyway, I don't eat mooncake. I've never eaten one in my life...ever! Just as I've never drunk coffee before too...Everyone keeps on telling me that I don't know what I've been missing but oh well, it's fine with me :P

Aidan always seem to be lao nuahing...

I have never drank coffe in my life too and I only take the teochew yam mooncake.

Happy Mid Autumn festival!

yah boy *sigh*..this boy is a perpetual drooler. Hoping that he'll stop soon. I'm really running out of bibs.

heh..i don't like lotus paste or those 'tao sar' + coconut pastries..actually, come to think of it, i don't like many of the chinese deserts cept for ice kachang n longan :P..

Sep. 28th, 2004 07:16 am (UTC)
I hate those lanterns with cheena music too! I like the old-fashions ones ... :)
Hey, I don't drink coffee too! Not shiok to me at all. I prefer teh-si or milo. :)
Now I can understand why Aidan needs a bib. The last photo shows a wet patch! Does it happen when he's in school too? Does he wear a bib there?
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:24 am (UTC)
I like the old fashion ones too. Unfortunately, for kids our age, they aren't really safe.

I drink tea though..but not with milk..Milo's fine too hehe..My distaste for coffee was probably becuz when i was young, mom used to ask me to help make coffee (the old fashion way) and then pour it into the flask..Always hated that chore and probably just grew to associate the smell of coffee with work :P..

Yeah lor..he is a mega drooler! He wears a bib to school too and Nenita will pack an extra 2 more in the big so that there's always extra when his bib becomes drenched by his drool.

"Anyway, I don't eat mooncake. I've never eaten one in my life...ever!"

Might as well cos mooncake very fattening. me fighting hard to resist it this year - try and eat as little as possible to avoid putting on fats!
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:30 am (UTC)
yeah..thankfully then. But I really marvel at how much some of my colleagues are able to eat. I mean..isn't it kinda jelak!

Eh..seriously, u can afford to put on weight leh! You are so slim!
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:33 am (UTC)
Aidan's hair looks quite brownish in some photos and you certainly slimmed down after going back to work and working out at all the netball sessions ah.
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:38 am (UTC)
yeah..aidan's hair is quite brownish actually..can see it better under the sun i guess.

like i told u..got lose inches but kg wise, still sama sama!

You're not alone. I hate coffee and have never touched it.
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:37 am (UTC)
wah..kaki! Quite rare i realise..most pple i know do drink coffee. That's why whenever friends wanna go places like starbucks or spinelli's, i feel damn sian :P.. Don't understand why pple will pay so much for designer coffee~ But guess it's coz im not a coffee drinker.

Eh..curious..why do u hate coffee? The smell?

my weighing scales say never leh :(
Sep. 28th, 2004 10:25 am (UTC)
I've gotta Hello Kitty lantern!!! But I don't switch on the music cos it's really irritating!

You don't eat mooncakes?!! I didn't have any this year cos I didn't go home... Oops! You should try the snowskin one... They are less jelak I feel... I don't eat the traditional ones... Only the snowskin ones with double yolk! *hee*
Sep. 28th, 2004 08:37 pm (UTC)
bleah..snowskin, durians, and mooncakes in whatever form..I just don't eat! simply have no desire for mooncakes :P

eh wait..u referring to the 'olden' days or during our childhood days *grin*

I thought the mooncake thingy was a result of some chinese revolution thingy where the movement shared information by hiding pieces of paper in the mooncake? Then dunno how the lantern came abt :P

I think the weight loss (or inches loss) is pretty obvious from your arms!

...and I've never drunk coffee before either....:)
Sep. 28th, 2004 08:20 pm (UTC)
yeah..but i'd always thought my arms aren't that big in the first place..the problem is that my arms and legs are quite slim but my tummy/waist area is quite broad..so it looks quite unproportionate :P

heh..wah, more non-coffee drinkers :)
Sep. 28th, 2004 06:51 pm (UTC)
Can't mute the awful music out but I dampen/soften it by taping a thick tissues over the speaker.
Sep. 28th, 2004 08:23 pm (UTC)
heh never though of doing it..
i almost cut of one of the wire which i thought was responsible for the sound but i was so afraid of cutting the wrong one:P
Sep. 28th, 2004 11:14 pm (UTC)
Orh .. now I know why you decline my offer of joining us for some mooncakes! Little portions of mooncakes as dessert with Chinese tea to wash down once a year is ok lah ...
and I can't believe you're a coffee virgin .. does virgin of any kind still exist in this day and age .. keke! If you're a coke drinker like I am, you must must must try drinking coffee too ... don't you find the smell alluring ...?? But isn't it strange that for most couples, one like coffee and the other like tea .. my hubby is the tea person and I'm the coffee .. the other way round for you .. And you've really slimmed down .. how I wish I have your slim arms leh ..
Sep. 29th, 2004 06:13 am (UTC)
heh yeah lor. me not a mooncake eater.
erm..no leh, i don't like the smell of coffee somehow..coke different lah. Erm..coke has smell meh *grin*
hm..i think my arms did slim down..not so much my tummy/waist area :P and pls lah, you are v slim already! Much slimmer than me anyway.
Sep. 29th, 2004 12:54 am (UTC)
aidan entirely looks like a boy now! Chong Chau Jit Fai Lok to you and your family too!

very surprised to her you had never have coffee before...it sounds so common (less surprise to mooncake though). i just can't understand why the coffee could be so expensive. I enjoyed coffee from places like starbucks/pacific coffe but i think i couldnt embrace the idea of having one from it everyday even one day i can afford it and that i need coffee everyday. i'd rather to use the money to eat or for salad :D (it was selling at like SGD 6.7 here in hk on average)
Sep. 29th, 2004 06:15 am (UTC)
well, i do know of pple who prefer the old traditional kinda coffee..those that are served in coffeeshop. My hubby is one of such pple..I think it's the younger folks who prefer designer coffee though im sure it taste pretty good but i seriously cant imagine pple paying so much for coffee..

yeah..better to use the dough to get something nice to eat right *grin*
Sep. 29th, 2004 03:49 am (UTC)
That's what's passing as lanterns nowadays? How silly! I still prefer lanterns that LOOK like lanters.

No mooncake? No coffee? Never ever? You must be one in a million! ;)
Sep. 29th, 2004 06:16 am (UTC)
yeah nowadays, the younger kids do not get to enjoy the true traditiona lanterns..what to do, afraid that our kids will get burnt.

Heh..no leh. I just realised tru this post that there r many like me..dont eat mooncake and don't drink coffee :)

Does Vietnamese celebrate mid-autumn too? They should right since there's lotsa Viet-Chinese.
