Cuckoo Celebration


Another year looking up at the same moon, thinking of the years spent together happily celebrating Mooncake Festival. How lovely!

李白诗:
床前明月光,
疑是地上霜。
举头望明月,
低头思故乡。

Celebrating Mooncake Festival here is not that bad after all. We had mooncakes, biscuits, candles, torch lights and no lanterns, haha... Initially, we were playing the candles by making those candles stand in some odd shapes and chinese words. Later, someone saw a group of people celebrating at the roof of a car park building somewhere nearby (note: the red circled picture below). Then, trying very hard to grab attention from them by flashing torch lights and 'ying guang bang' just wanted to say "HELLLOO poeple at the other side of the hilltop!!!" *sweat* Anyway, no idea whether they actually realised our cuckoo greetings from the other building. We only saw twice they flashed red light. Heehee...

That day's celebration was not enough to wear off our energy. Once again, gathered some 'forces' to play a super duper tiring game the next day. We lit candles at the balcony, one by one blow off the candles in sequence using the thin straw. Whoever fails to blow off the particular candle will have to finish one of the almost-due-date-biscuits-stock belong to 'someone'. Mind you, it is not easy at all especially when we put the candles further than the first round (note: first round-left pic; second round-right pic). A few times, I nearly ran out of breath trying to blow off the furthest candle. Haahaa...



Well, that was how I celebrated this year Mooncake Festival. Had too much of mooncakes since 2 weeks ago during study week. BRruuupP!! Thanks pals, for willing go mad with me with some cuckoo games, haha... Not bad at all =)
