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

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)
Life is busy as usual, and extremely tired lately due to the crazy weather and sick bugs came visited me :( 
Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!
Take care and have a nice week ahead!

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…
