Our family had our first overseas Mid-autumn experience in the States last year and couldn’t be any more glad to be back home for this festival this year.
We didn’t celebrate the Mid-autumn festival on the actual day as Papa Yap had to work late. So here’s what we did during the Mid-autumn festive weekend this year. On Friday, after our dinner at Tampines mall, Papa Yap decided to bring the kids to Chinatown for a walk. The streets were brightened up with so many lanterns of various colours. Such a beautiful sight. The kids were also happy to be going home with a lantern each from their Papa.
The next day, my sister and John came over to my place to accompany double Ds while Papa Yap attended a dinner date with his friends. After dinner, we brought the kiddos under the block and they had a fun time playing at the playground as well as playing with the lanterns. And guess what, we ended up using the lantern from previous years. Dyann actually spoilt both her new lanterns and one of Darian’s shortly after purchase. Haha…
On Sunday night, we brought the kiddos to Punggol end for a lantern walk. We walked around with the lanterns, played with candles, had ice-cream, and watched the kids run and glide around. It was absolutely an enjoyable and happy night with the kiddos. Papa Yap and I would definitely keep this traditional festival going for our little family. We want them to have wonderful childhood memories just like us. 🙂
