Happy Mid Autumn Festival everyone!
Looks like the older we get, the less people want to walk around with lanterns.
I remember just last year I made Andrew and Razzie walk with me around Taman Tun carrying lanterns.
But lucky for Fruitcake and I, we now have Isabelle to bring out and do the lantern walk with! She seems to be a willing party!
That’s exactly what we did last Saturday when Plaza Mont Kiara organized a lantern festival complete with moon cake sampling and acrobatic performance.
While walking back home, who called be but Razzie! He was having coffee at Coffee Bean. Happy Mid Autumn Fest Razzie Boy!
Why is it when we are adults, we loose the magic of childhood?
Why do we stop questioning why the world works the way it does?
Why do we stop running in the rain?
Why do we stop doing finger painting?
Why do we stop dressing up for Halloween?
Why do we stop talking to animals?
Why do we stop watching cartoons?
Why do we stop playing with lanterns?
Other adults may look at us oddly but so what? It’s them who have lost the magic and missing out on simple, unadulterated, magical fun. And why? Just because they are shy? Or adults should not engage in kids activities?
It’s not that I haven’t grown up. I’m 30 going on 31. I have a stable job and am climbing the corporate ladder. I accumulate credit card debt which I pay in full every month. I have a house and a car. And loans for both.
So don’t look at me funny when I bring out my crayons and colouring book.
