Lanterns & mooncake festival is coming. You can tell, as the shopping mall is decorated with beautiful lanterns and selling mooncakes. I bought 2 traditional lanterns (baby & fish) for my children.

I still have the past years lantern that he bought and it is still in working condition. Now they have butterfly, dragon fly, flower basket and ultraman.

I love playing traditional lanterns. You lit up the candles and switched off all the lights. It is very beautiful. When I was young, I love playing with candles. You know what I did? I use can candles with my masak-masak set made of aluminum to cook rice. I will put a candle in between 2 match box, fill the masak masak pot with rice and water, put the pot to sit on the match box and let the candle heat up the pot to boil the water to cook rice. Isn’t that amazing? I was only 5 years old.

Here are some pictures of the beautiful lit up lanterns at my front porch.

My son picked a butterfly lantern and I picked a baby for my gal…
