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.

  2. I didn't play wishing light before.

    Hey, I should have ask you to add one more wish, if I'd knew you were playing yesterday --> Banish Mr.Annoying forever.... Bwahahaha!

  3. Hayley, 15? that's alot...We dun dare to light so many, ended we bought one big one costs RM28 (also my first time lighten one)
    Read from The Star newspaper yesterday (felt guilty), people being caught of buying and selling this in Penang(got airport)! Shhh....nobody know we released rite except our blogger frens!

  4. Never tried that, must be fun? Imagine 15 of them floating in the sky.. Wow.. :)

  5. Yan, ya, kids enjoyed watching them..

    Yvonne, LOL, I did wish for that, wahahaha :D

    AngelineBK, hmm, luckily there's no airport here...

    Inspired Momx1, ya it was fun lighting them and see it fly!

  6. I played it at Taiwan last year. I no dare play at tpg leh, later drop to ppl's house or get any injury for others then jia lat liao~ hehe

  7. Evelyn, actually I have this concern too =_=
    So I told myself this would be the 1st and last time I played....

  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

  9. ChloeRuoyi, come to my hometown and you'll see for yourself :P
    Ya, I hope too!

  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!

  12. Saw a lot at places near temples.

  13. Barbara, I agree. Unless those policemen go rounds the town every night... =_=

    Lee, thanks!
    -28'c??? You please keep warm ok! Hug your wife to get thebody warm! :P

    ChrisAu, ya, its commonly seen at temples ;)

  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!^-^

  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.

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

    Hope ur wish comes true.

  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!

  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! :)

  19. Wah...I love lanterns!!! Especially floating ones!!! They're so beautiful~ I want one, darling! xD

  20. Shenny's Mommy, thanks thanks! I also hope my prayers heard!

    Erika, today's the last day of CNY, you still can release them tonight! :P

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…


Aden: 各位阿姨叔叔好啊!=)

最近实在忙,几乎一个星期才能生一篇文,有时两个星期呢 =_="
早上都在忙家务忙孩子和载大宝上学。  下午得哄小宝睡午觉~ 还要兼顾我的网卖生意。 不过最近的他好像不爱睡午觉了耶!如果他没睡我就更不得空了!得陪他玩~  话说玩不到一下下就得出门载Aden回家了~~ 每个星期的两个傍晚我都会上tabata课,一下课就回家继续当‘佣人’ xD
晚上就是陪/教Aden做功课,有时间的话就看看AOD的香港连续剧(话说最近的连续剧都不好看!)  过后就要给孩子们睡觉啦!  每天大概就是这样过,几乎都在做同样的事,都是围绕着家庭和孩子。  不过忙归忙,累归累,我觉得都是值得的啦!  当了全职妈妈5年,没后悔过 ^^

 近两个星期的天气都很糟~ 想不到可以去哪个游泳池(之前去到酒店游泳池已经不开放给外人了 T_T),所以干脆在家玩玩水就好~ 还好这几天开始有下雨了,要不然真的要发热气了!

 上周末大宝的幼儿园老师举办动物园半日游,我第一时间报名 :p (当然是先问Aden意愿啦) 虽然上学半年多了,很多时候他还是比较内向/慢热。这次就让他和老师朋友出外郊游。原本想和他一起去,还好我没有!想说借这机会让他独立独立 =)

 老师拍的照片~  看了都感觉很热很热对吧?  一说到动物园,我第一形象就是热!xD

 去载他的时候都没什么,老师也没有complain xD  问他开心吗,他说开心,看到很多动物,还说谁谁谁跌倒,谁谁谁的妈妈有去等等~  看来是很enjoy啦!

 我虽然很累很想休息,不过周末傍晚如果天气好,我都会尽量带他们出外玩玩~  要不然呆在家也是看ipad玩玩具而已~

 久久晒一下夫妻两的照片 :p  我们还是一样,无穿无烂 :p 只是最近的他晒黑了很多!没办法啦!太阳公公太热情了,而老公也得出外做工养活啊~ (
辛苦你了老公) 话说我好像很少在这里提起我家abang的ho?哈哈!
不知不觉都认识了14年,当夫妻已有8年。  两公婆开心的时候有,不开心的时候也不少呵呵~  不过这也算正常吧?毕竟要两个不同背景的人要走在一起组织一个家庭不容易,难免会有意见不合争吵什么的~  我觉得最重要还是要互相体谅和多沟通啦!这样才能长久~ right? =)

 从早忙到晚的我,真的很需要好好保养和调理身体~  感恩我遇见…
