When I was a kid, I used to call it the Lantern Festival.. As I grew older, I call it the Moon Cake Festival.. Finally, I grew enough to know it’s real name. The Mid Autumn Festival.

Last weekend, we went down town to my aunt’s place in Cheras to celebrate the Mid Autumn festival. They do it the traditional way. Where they setup some tables with some candles and joss sticks and fruits and lotsa stuffs to pray. My lil cousins were everywhere.. Playing with first lantern, later candles and ended up playing fire. Just the way I used to do it.

Oh well. As usual the photos will speak for itself.

It started off small and empty..

My sis went to hype up those kids with lanterns and candles..

Father and kids having a great time. 😀

Nothing is more exciting than to see a lantern burning.

My parents, aunts and uncles, cousins and my sister hanging around outside.. Chatting while munching on some snacks.

Everyone had lotsa fun until it was time to go home…

I have to go now.. I have a test tomorrow.. See ya fellas… Ciao!
