许愿灯 (The wishing light)

Or some people call it 孔明灯. For once, I heard that this wishing light is banned because of the risk that it'll interrupt flights. But still, many people at my hometown are playing it, probably because there's no airport at my place? =_=

Before the games begin, lets eat 1st shall we? ^^
enjoying the steamboat at a friend's house


Crystal joined

Coincidentally, there's a big field opposite his house, a perfect place to release the wishing light!
thats hubby and I attempting to release one, and believe it or not, I really made a wish when I let go the light :P

we released about 15 wishing lights that night (thats how greedy we are :P)


some fireworks display



Have you play this before?

  1. Wow! 15 lanterns on the sky, make me think of the scene in Rapunzel. I haven't played this before. My kids enjoyed watching it a lot.

  8. Besides seeing it in Rapunzel, I didn't know people actually do it here (in Msia). Must be quite fun to play but dangerous at the same time. Hopefully it didn't drop on people's house and cause fire :p

  10. we have seen these lanterns every year at the temple we go to on chap goh mei. it is pretty dangerous because the lanterns may get stuck on the roofs or trees. good that the authorities are against them but how are they going to check or go after those who release them?

  11. Hi Hayley, Holy Smoke! I have not read, heard about this 'wishing light more than 30 years! Forgot all about it too.
    Yes, I did have this when young....but today in view of it can be dangerous to planes or homes I guess the practice is no longer being played.

    Love your pics here and you really look good in the pics.
    Good photography too....
    Have fun, Lee.
    ps, we now -28'c outside!

  14. I have yet play this wishing light before, I think it's banned in K.L. Your wishing light looks like a heart shape(how sweet), and it's beautiful too... I wish I can at least play once!^-^

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hope all your wishes come true. :) I've never played before but one wishing light dropped from the sky outside my mum's house and my Hubby actually caught it..haha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I donno why it is banned, but I guess many Chinese still prefer to continue the tradition.

    Hope ur wish comes true.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Alice Law, haha its not heart shaped actually, may be its the angle problem ;)

    Mummy Gwen, thank you!

    Pete, yes thats what I heard too!

    YT, true, I see shops still sell them.. thats why many people still playing them ^^
    Thanks and you have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Due to my concern about dangerous of this flying lantern might cause any mishap, I never dare to try it. I guess you sure feel good when thinking your wishing being brought upwards to get closer to God in heaven, probably God could hear it clearer. Hope your wish come true soon! :)

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

What we did during the long Deepavali holidays/这个屠妖节长假

I bet every stay-at-home-mums suffer from headache when it comes to school holidays.
It can means more screaming more mess at home, haha!

Though I have only 2 kids at the moment, I really dislike school holidays.
Firstly, big brother stays home all day means there will be more fighting, more chasing and even more bullying.
Secondly, staying at home all day can be very boring for kids, I need to crack head thinking what to let them do to pass time.

Anyway, during the recent Deepavali long holidays, I brought them to Trong duck farm.
The last visit was only last month, apparently my sons love this place and have been pestering me to go there again.
Since it's school holiday and the place is not far, why not?

我相信大部分的全职妈妈都不喜欢学校假期,至少我是啦~


大哥哥一整天在家,和弟弟争吵的机会就会更多了~
再来,要他们一整天呆在家也很无聊,我这个懒妈妈都不懂要让他们玩些什么新玩意 xD

 唯一一方面我喜欢的就是不必当司机载上学~ :p

Anyway, 这个屠妖节的长假呢,第一个外出的地方就是自农鸭场。

距离上一次去看鸭子只有大概一个月前的事,由于儿子们都很喜欢这个地方,而且也不远(从太平出发只需大概30分钟),所以决定再去一次!
