Our Mid-Autumn Festival


It was a great opportunity to bond with the children and what better way to bring them out to the garden with their lanterns on this special occassion, Mid-Autumn Festival.

Luckily, we’ve got quite a number of lanterns for the children which were given by relatives and friends. As for the ones that I’ve bought for them, one was split into 2 while the other had no light on this special occasion. Ethan was alittle tired today and asked to go back home early and for Ezanne, she was really excited about it and wanted more. It is after all the first Mid-Autumn Festival that Ezanne walks in the garden with a lantern.

After this, I’ll be looking forward to our next Mid-Autumn Festival as we will be having Evan celebrating it with us.

Mid-Autumn Festival


Ethan is 3 years old and for the first time, he finally gets to understand what is lantern festival all about, its about eating mooncakes and walking around in the estate with his lantern. Earlier in the day, we went to Marine Parade for prayer session. It was rather quiet this time round cause not many people came.

After that, I brought Ethan with me to my boss’s baby one month old celebration. He was rather quiet, didn’t want to talk much to people (trying to act shy). I realise that after he left the place, he started to become talkative again, hmm, I wonder what do I have to do to make him talk more.

In the evening, I brought him to Punggol for the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration. He was pretty excited at first and was so looking forward to see the Jade Rabbit and Chang Er. But when the Jade Rabbit appeared, he became so scared. I even brought him up close and personal with the Jade Rabbit, but he told me, “Daddy, can we go back. I’m scared!” He was so scared that he didn’t even join in the procession. I’m glad that on the whole, Ethan enjoyed the night especially carrying the lantern and walking about.

If Jingyi is available, I’ll defintely bring him to the next event, a Halloween party at Punggol.
