This and That























I always think the mooncake festival in China should be a pomp festival, oh, what a sorely disappointed that i didn't see any latern parades and splendid decorations here. Somemore, the people at my place are very high-teched until my hubby couldn't buy any candles from the grocery shops. We had scouted to few shops and found nothing, so eventually my hubby used the knife severed the normal white candle into few cylindrical pieces and put inside the paper lanterns. We're very pity indeed as we only managed to hang our lanterns at the balcony, and i didn't see my Jo beamed with joyful when the laterns are being lit on. I think most probably he is too lonely and doesn't have siblings to play and chase around.























That's another happy Sunday, i finally bought the bubble gun for Jo after he begging me for a week. He was so happy and made a pledge not to cry when he resumes his class today. What a good boy that he has kept his promise for not crying on this morning! But it's not enough for today, i do hope he is ok on everyday and the most important is he is strong enough to withstand all the germs, i hate to see him kept sicking like 3 days to school then the whole week at home waited for recovering. When i paying the October's fee today, the admin staff even refunded the last month meal's fee for me, oh, i was so blurred as i definitely don't know it has refund for student who absent the class for 4 days or more. As for Jo, he had repeated absences from school for 10 days already, haha....so i deserved the refund.

Over the weekend, i held a little touching conversation with Jo while i was changing his cloth. I said "If mommy getting older and can't walk, will you still love mommy?", Jo replied "Jojo can walk, Jojo will hold mommy's hand and walk with mommy", Oh, he said this when he is 30 months old, i wonder will the reply still be the same when he is 30 years old? Ok, let's wait and see!

It's been quite hazy in Malaysia and Singapore. Most people chose to stay indoor on Mooncake Festival. Qianyi's school let her bring back her lantern (made by her daddy)last Fri. Her daddy bought some nice food home for dinner. We had a small celebration at home. She had no playmates that night but she had a good time during celebration in school that morning.:p

That's so strange of a very chinese place has no sign of celebrating the historical festival.
