Mid Autumn Festival Reunion Dinner



Colourful candles and paper lanterns,
Are something we love playing during the moon cake festival.
As I grow up,
I find candles and paper lanterns are strangers to me.
Till this year’s Mid Autumn Festival
I joined up the children circle (right, a 20+-year-old-girl joined the kids’ crowd)
To bring back my childhood memories… on lantern and candles.

A day I longed has arrived. Finally, family and relatives could get together, for the reunion dinner and the chats with liquor after dinner.

For dinner, every dish was well prepared with loves and care…
