If you ever celebrated the Mooncake Festival, you will definitely remember these activities.
In conjunction with the Mid Autumn Festival, let’s bring you back to the good old childhood days with no worries but only laughter and joy :’)
Alright, let’s not waste time! The journey down memory lane that will make you want to be a kid again starts now!
1. Playing with Candles and ‘sticking’ it everywhere
Remember the time where you will grab colorful candles and light them up in patterns in your backyard? Yeap, we actually did that. Oh how life was so simple and innocent….
2. Getting battery operated lantern with music
Once upon a time, we all got the lantern that lit up with a push of a button. Not only can it light up with one magic button, there is also music playing leh! We all thought this was the coolest thing ever!
3. Getting traditional cellophane/glass paper lanterns
How can we forget about these lanterns?! These wireframe, multi-colored plastic sheet lanterns are simply classics, with timeless patterns like the rabbit, fish, chicken, and dragon. I am pretty sure we all went to Pasar Malam and got the lantern that follows our Chinese zodiac signs or the classic fish pattern at least once!
4. Walking around the neighborhood with lanterns
As kids, we were definitely very excited to walk around the neighborhood at night with our lit lanterns. Carrying the lanterns and “showing off” to your friends or neighbors how nice your lantern was hahaha
