Ci Yuan CC has organized a mid autumn festival celebration this evening where our PM is the guest of honour. We were there early but there were many others who were earlier.

There was a mini celebration for Lantern Festival at the club house this evening. I brought Jerlene and Javier there to collect their free lanterns.

The hazy situation has gotten from bad to worse today. While we were on the road this morning, the visibility was pretty low.
September one week school holiday starts today. However, Jerlene and Javier will still be going to student care and child care centre for the day. Before sending them to the centre, we brought them for breakfast at the nearby newly opened Ci Yuan CC hawker centre. We ordered a huge bun called "叶子楣大包" and they were amazed by the size. Jerlene loves the pork inside while Javier loves the skin outside. It's not easy to find food that they both like. :-)
In recent months, having prata lunch on Sunday have become a weekly affair for us. Javier will always order his "special paper sugar and milk prata" while Jerlene will order either an egg prata or putu mayam. Of course, they will not forget their Ice Milo.
It's currently the 7th month of the lunar calendar. It's also known as the hungry ghost month. During this month, there will be mini stage setup all around the island where singers were invited to sing for the 好兄弟 (ghosts). This is the first time where Jerlene and Javier actually experienced such atmosphere but they were not simply interested....... :-(
Jerlene and Javier had been asking to watch "Inside Out" in the past few weeks. Initially I thought they may not understand what those characters (Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and fear) actually are but I was wrong. They explained to me that those characters are in the mind of the little girl and controlling her actions. In fact, they not only understand the story, this was also the first time I see them getting emotional. At one point when the scene was so touching, I actually saw Javier controlling tears in his eyes. And when he noticed that I was watching him, he turned around and said:"My eyes itchy"! Haha.....a boy is a boy. 男子汉，流血不流泪!
