Cass and I attended a pot-luck lantern party to celebrate Mid Autumn Festival organized by her class teacher on this lovely Saturday evening. It was held at one of the classmate’s abode at Sunway Vivaldi, Mont Kiara. Thankfully the rain didn’t rain on our parade tonight (literally) and the kids could play outdoors and walk around the condo with their lanterns.

The students attempting to answer the riddles hung on each lantern.
The students who answered correctly received a little prize from Miss L, the ever dedicated and passionate class teacher of 3S.
Brain-teasers hung on each lantern.
After digging into all the yummy food, there was a night walk around the vicinity of the condo with the kids holding their lanterns.

The girl in floral dress on Cass’ right is the school’s Year 3 top student 2 times consecutively this year. She’s an amazing girl – sweet, charming, polite and bright.
Parents lighting up a floating lantern.
The highlight of the night was lighting up a floating lantern to send it up the sky. The floating lantern works on the same principles of a hot air balloon.
After a tough time lighting up the lantern and to get it to float up the sky, alas the lantern was blown away and got stuck on a tree branch. What bummer and anti-climax! And the parents had to hurriedly hose down the lantern with water. Nonetheless, the kids had a great time. It was the kids’ first out-of-school class party.
