"That's MY lantern! "
After everyone filled up their tummys, there were activities for the kids followed by a tai-chi and line dancing session. Elyssa joined in for a while only. She wasn't in a particularly good mood cos she only had a short 20 minute nap the whole day. She didn't cry but she didn't want to participate in any of the activities. Not even dancing with "Ah Mah" during the line dancing session.
We hung around until it was time to announce the results of the Lantern Competition. There were plenty of consolation prizes with 2 main prizes - Most Creative Lantern and Most Beautiful Lantern. The Most Creative Lantern prize went to a young boy who created a beautiful hexagon shaped lantern using old egg cartons.
And the Most Beautiful Lantern went to................ Elyssa's lantern! Yay !!!! Clap Clap to hubby!

Overall, a very well organised event indeed! I heard that discussions have already started for next year's event. I'm looking forward to it!
