The kids had been waiting for this event all week. We had got their paper lanterns ready, the candles were there, ready to be lit. They even went to nap in the afternoon like good little children because they wanted to wake up fresh to play lanterns.
And then……… it rained. We had wanted to take them to the park like last year but it was wet and still drizzling after dinner. So we went to pump petrol and the petrol station instead.
So, I decided to call second sis to ask if it was drizzling at her place. It was too but she had the space in her house to play lanterns and she had some of her in-laws with little kids there. She said she had wanted to call me too but wasn’t sure whether we could make it last minute. That was great. “I’m on my way” I said.
And thats how I gate crashed a lantern festival party. Eventually my second bro turned up with his kid too. So the kids had a delightful time playing lantern with other kids despite the drizzle. And I ate too much mooncake again. Burp!
