Lantern Carnival 2006

It was during the school holidays my brother, Tuck with his family (wife and 3 kids) came to visit me. Decided to take them to the Lantern Carnival in Bukit Jalil. Entrance fee is RM5 per person and children under 5 is free. Time of entry is from 3 p.m. and ends at 12 midnite.
RM5 is not expensive with so many lanterns to survey but once u are inside, there's where the spending comes in. There are so many stalls - food, games, toys, clothes, drinks, souvenirs, ice-cream, etc. There are even train rides – RM2 per person for each ride. Bringing kids to such places means u have to spend!

The Asian Cultural Lantern Carnival 2006

The "Wang Wai" (powerful) looking Dragon. It's very long and it's amazing dat it was constructed of porcelain (not melamine or plastic) plates and spoons. Wonder what will happen if one of the strings broke? Pling plang, pling plang lor. Dat was what Pappy said (heehee). I examined and it was very well secured with lots of strings.

The Kuan Yin with a thousand hands. At a certain time, water will be sprouted out from the front 2 hands. Visitors who wish to be 'blessed' will wet themselves in front of the statue. Pappy asked me to get 'blessed' but I said 'Siao ar? How do I know what water they are spraying'.

Another entrance. So colourful hor?

A walkway with hundreds (thousands) bulbs.

Notice anything's wrong with Destinee?

Haiya ... yalor ... can shake hands with Wien (Jess's elder princess) liao. I didn't even notice until she said she was tired and wanted me to carry and one of her slippers dropped. Eiks! 1 'kung' and 1 'na' (1 male and 1 female – different). Guess we were in a hurry to go out and she simply slipped her feet into the slippers cos both were pink in colour and of the same size. When I asked her, she said "Never mind mommy, no one will notice". *slap head*

Zara's mama:
The lantern carnival is the lastest - 2006.

Heehee, big head prawn mommy lor. We were in a hurry to go out so didn't notice what she was wearing. She always choose the shoes she like to wear so we didn't bother and it happened dat she has 2 pairs of pink-coloured slippers.

I didn't notice too until she dropped on of the slippers when I carried her.

1+2 mom:
The carnival is at an empty space next to the Bukit Jalil Stadium. Once u reach there, it'll be very noticeable. Try not to go during weekends when it's really packed not only with ppl but very difficult to find parking space too.

Not much to see much and felt cheated meh? With only RM5 entrance fee, what do u expect wor? Actually we, esp. the kids, enjoyed seeing the lanterns and we stopped at every lantern to examine.

Heehee, are kids of this age the same? Ya lor, sometimes I don't check what she wears cos she always choose what to wear.

Luckily it was duing the nite time and so didn't notice at all, heehee.

Ya, ya, actually it's more for the kids to enjoy.

Haha, at least Damien knows how to look himself up at the mirror and looks 'swee swee' before he goes out.

Hahaha, ur imagination is very funny. 'Senget' one side shows dat she'in pain pulak ... haiyo ....

Oh yes, it was indeed a very nice outing. The kids got to look at all the interesting lanterns.

Oops? The place looks like in China meh? Hahaha, can bluff bluff hor? The lanterns were constructed by ppl from China. M'sians MANA BOLEH.

Really? U took ur boys there too? Mozzies? Heehee, didn't feel them 'slurping' for my blood wor.
