Mid Autumn Festival

Hello from my naughty boys!!

How was your Mid Autumn Festival this year?
Ours were very simple, playing candles and lanterns at our balcony, haha! 

The boys are not keen on moon cakes, actually me too, I used to love moon cakes, but this year... Change of taste bud may be? xD

Anyway, both my sons love playing with fire candles,  we had been playing like this for continuous few nights til I became bored, LOL! So I told them 3/10 (The actual mid autumn festival) will be the last night we play with candles....

They even sang birthday song in advance for me! Haha!

On the 29/9 night, we attended Aden's school lantern festival.
Lots of people that night, I mean of course, the whole school were invited!

2 main activities that night, stage performance and lantern walk around the school area.
Too bad, it was raining that night so the latter activity had to cancel :(

They brought along the lanterns, still prefer these traditional paper lanterns over those battery-operated ones. 
These days, paper lanterns also not cheap!

The whole event lasted for about 2 hours++. Aden was behaving well sitting with his friends, but Toby got a little cranky towards the end...

Here's a short clip of Aden performing on stage with his friends.
Though it was a simple performance, I am very proud of him! 
This is his first performance too! Consider okay already la! ^^

Look forward to see him perform again next month during the graduation ceremony!


  1. Yeah!!! I can see him in his orange t-shirt! All the best in next month's performance, Aden!

  2. Nowadays, lanterns getting more and more fanciful..

    1. Agree, macam macam pattern pun ada!

  3. yes can spot Aden on stage. Toby looks so cheeky in some of the photos. Good that both of them have lots of fun for this festival.

    1. He is cheeky in real person too, LOL!

  4. Your boys are so cute in photos. I think those paper lanterns using candles are better and traditional. They were never cheap even when I was a kid. Those days a big dragon costed RM5 and we all fainted at that price. Today a mini tiny one costs over RM10. Terrible inflation.

    1. Nowadays more expensive! A simple small size also needs RM10 lo!

  5. I love those paper lanterns with candles, so much fun and it's joy for you to see your boys growing up day by day

  6. Hi Hayley, here in Toronto never seen children carrying lanterns during the moon festival. Saw some on display at Chinese stores. This year we ate the most mooncakes, twice at Chinese buffet restaurants, and friends presenting us couple of boxes of mooncakes. There's still a few left! I love the mixed nuts, but not the ones with eggs in them, will pass to ny wife.

    Chinese festivals not celebrated like where you are....unlike Halloween coming soon, where people, children of all nationalities celebrate going around to homes 'treat or trick'.
    Its now getting much cooler and already trees changing colours as its now Autumn. Won't be long before we get our first snowfall.
    Your boys looking good,
    Best regards,

    1. Your place, I can tell it's less happening! Unless it's Chinese New Year la!
      I don't love moon cakes with egg yolks too!

      Halloween is surely much more happening at your place, here, nothing much, may be just some decorations in the malls.

  7. Very fun for the kids to carry lanterns! Aden and Toby have grown so much.

    1. They sure did!
      Their mummy also become older liao, hur hur!

  8. Glad your kids still enjoy it! My kids rather play on the phone ! My son especially was saying there’s no fun playing with candles and lanterns hahah

    1. Not good playing with gadgets all the time! Must accompany them and play with lanterns with them, more fun!

  9. This year Mid Autumn falls on weekday so didn't do much activity, just play candles at my apartment's pool area with other neighbours~

    1. Sounds ok too, at least got neighbors, we just played on our own only xD

  10. I don't even realize moon cake festival gone past already this year. Sh*t... I probably spent it working in the office as usual >.< ...

  11. Lovely celebration. We celebrated earlier. Lighted the lanterns on weekend. Nothing on actual day.

    Cute kids singing birthday song for mummy.

    1. Haha, Aden's idea, cause I told him my birthday was around the corner xD

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
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~


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…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
