Mid-Autumn Festival 2007

My parents-in-law (PIL, from Johor) came on Saturday for a visit and to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. We had dinner at home yesterday - buffet-style. We bought most of the food, just cooked some. There were 6 adults - my PIL, BIL (CB’s younger brother) and wife, CB and me, and 3 children - XY, CE and their cousin brother, CH. We had it outdoor, at the car porch, so we can eat, sip some tea and enjoy the full moon. Too bad it’s quite a hot night.

PIL bought Hello Kitty and Doraemon balloon lanterns for their grandchildren. The kids weren’t too interested to take lanterns. After awhile, they went inside to enjoy the air-cond and cartoon. Soon we followed suit and continued our mooncake session inside. Ahhh... what a heavy meal.

Jazz, MIL told me they sell Power Rangers too. But I guess Doraemon's more suitable for now. hahaha

Joanne, totally agree with u. The atmosphere is different. Definitely merrier.
