See how spoilt we were, the eggs were not prepared by the mother of the birthday child but the aunt who pampered him a lot!! It has been our family tradition to crack hard boiled eggs on lunar birthday.
A rather quiet weekend in the house because there were only adults and no children. It was Asher’s Lunar Birthday and we thought it would be great to be with grandma and celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. While we thought it was just going to be mooncake and tea on the table, grandma insisted to get a mini cake for Asher and he chose 2 cheese tarts. Asher was all so excited to sing song and blow candles, instead of asking daddy and mommy to blow candles together, he wanted grandma and his favourite aunty. For the first time, this boy stopped for a moment and declared he wanted to make a wish too! Super cute, still very babyish to me.
Surprise! Surprise! Someone was munching mooncakes and he could tell us the taste and his preferred flavor. Not too bad, in term of “taste & texture”, he is adapting well and less a fussy pot now. This year, I was so occupied that I didn’t buy any mooncakes, not even my yam teochew mooncakes, thanks to my sisters who got it, I wasn’t left out, next year I must remember to buy snowskin mooncakes for M and hold the gathering at our gardens, let the kids hang many lanterns while we eat mooncakes together.
Oh yes, we even visited Gardens by the Bay the weekend before it knowing they might it be together on the actual day, the kids had fun running and checking out these light up decorators around the gardens.
Beautiful, isn’t it? I always tell Ben if our overseas friends ask where are the good places to visit in Singapore, it is a must to visit Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Zoo/Night Safari. Wanna visit GBTB this weekend? Check out this : (quoted from singpromos) you won’t want to miss it.
