Mid-Autumn Festival

Do you still rem last year Zac scalded his fingers while handling the sparkles after the sparks died off?
This year, I bought them LED paper lantern to ensure their safety :):)


This is the moon cake I bought for my parents. Yum Yum :)

JO-N said...

People can be very creative when it comes to products. Nowadays, we are buying boxes instead of moon cakes!

Bobby said...

Hi Janice! When I was little, my mom caught me playing with matches and I almost set my bedroom on fire! Luckily, she caught me. She cried so much thinking something bad almost happened to me, I never did that again! I still want some mooncake!!!

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : Zac remembered & has a phobia with candles/fire this year. He is happy with LED latern too :)

J@n!ce said...

ECL : LOL !! My boys are afraid of fire after what happened to Zac last year. ;p

J@n!ce said...

Sandman : LOL!! You may be right since technology is so advanced now. :D

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : We had a fruitful Sunday. Brought the boys to IKEA for lunch & then head them for the indoor playground. Amos stayed throughout the 1 hr this time. After that we head to a public pool near our house. It was so crowded!! At night, we attended a wedding dinner :)

Hehehe, no mj !!

J@n!ce said...

Jo-N : I think I get what you mean with buying boxes. Consumer chose the design of the boxes rather than the taste of the mooncake. LOL :)

J@n!ce said...

Bobby : Since young, we are caution of the danger of fire. I myself is scare of fire even till now. I rem I'm so afraid even to light the bunsen burner during chemistry class. That's so terrible :(

J@n!ce said...

Cbenc12 : haha, with blinking lights somemore to resemble a flame from the fire. ;)
