Our Kids Has Grown Up 孩子们都长大了 – Happy Mid Autumn Festival

Date:  Sep 27, 2015

We gave life to them 9 & 6 years ago, and look at them today, blink blink, they have all grown up.  

It has been an exciting journey so far, and it’s going to be another long and exciting journey ahead.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!


Look at the sky.  Do you see that big round round moon?

It was amazing.  Just two days ago, the country is in distress and have to cancel school and O-level exams for Primary School and Secondary School.

The west side of Singapore has hit a dangerous level of PSI > 350.

Then, on that day itself, blue sky started to appear.  And look at today, the sky is just perfect!

Don’t feel like having haze at all.

That is why all of us gear up and joining the carry lantern event from Ayer Rajah CC walking to the 城隍庙.

We are going to park our car at Lukas and Ashlyn’s condo, and then, we walk from there across the AYE to the Chinese temple where there is a Getai & dinner set up already there,

These kids has known each others back in Lorna Whiston Pre-School as young as 18 months.

Thanks to the weather and no haze.  

Boon Ching make a remark: “We don’t get this kid of clear sky where you can see the moon so clearly every year.”

Someone: “But today is not Mid-Autumn Festival yet!”

Ya hor, come to think about it… what if tomorrow the sky rains?  what if the haze came back?  

So, today, we see the weather so nice, better do it today instead of tomorrow…

Everyone must be thirsty.  Let’s drink some orange juice.  It says Orange juice on this big drink container.

The moon is so round and bright tonight.  (I didn’t bring my Super Zoom camera, this is the best I can shoot).

It will be a waste if we didn’t take a photo with the moon as our background.  

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

The kid’s childhood does not come by chance.

It depends on the parents who “pakat” so to make things happen.

Both Jay & Kay has make friends with the Faber Crest families.  They playdate together.  They study together.  They went on holidays together.  And again and again, we the parents hope to give them the best friendships, childhood so that they can cherish and remember forever.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!  中秋节快乐!
