Its the yearly 中秋节 mid autumn festival again! This is one of the best time to get together, drink some tea, eat lots of mooncakes and have some fun. Being the sporting bunch, we decided to light up the lanterns and take a moonlit stroll around the quiet neighborhood.
Lighting the evergreen paper lanterns that are unchanged for the last 20 years.
Amanda's got the green light.
Now we are all ready.
And here we go..with big wide smiles and happy faces!
Strolling in a beeline.
Joshua's wacky invention. How to carry more lanterns? Find a good sturdy tree branch...

Of course that's not all, mid autumn festival isn't complete without some feast. After we had a good stroll under the moonlight, we treated ourselves to yummy mooncakes, fine chinese tea and some other great food.
We even had a professional tea making set to make fine Chinese tea for all.
Our tea master Cheng Yan demonstrates his Chinese tea brewing skill.
Great food, great tea, great fellowship! What more to ask :)
