Hi guys, wishing you a belated Happy Midautumn/Mooncake/Lantern Festival! Yesterday my mom and I decided to visit  the Midautumn lights display at Gardens by the Bay, while the full moon was still up. This is the 2nd time I've been to this location for the event, having came last year (didn't blog about it though). I visited one back in 2011 at the Chinese Gardens. Read about it here.

It was crowded, we left the grounds at about 10.30pm. The displays were very nice, and there were ample food stalls. I had the most delicious pudding-flavoured (jello embedded) Taiwanese ice-cream! Oh and if you're wondering how I celebrate the festival, it's just another day of work lol. I don't eat the mooncakes either.
