Ben: at HDB celebration of Lantern Festival

Posted by

One great thing about living in a HDB estate is all the community celebrations that are organised. Over the weekend, we took a stroll down to the nearby atrium where we got to take part in some festivities - there was games for kids, a lantern parade (for kids as well), a dragon dance, and lots of really kitsch happy chinese music.

Here's Ben looking quite 'sotong' at the going-ons. Dan was a bit better - alert as usual, he was initially scared of the dragon. Then, he excitedly exclaimed at the loong dancing dragon, "Train! chumchumchumchumchum! Dragon happy! Train!"

"DRAGON TRAIN" ? Ha Ha Ha... Must be Dan's creative thinking at work! Good that you are immersing the kids into the Singapore culture. Have fun.....
