Then I suddenly realised - it was Chap Goh Meh! I've read about the annual Chap Goh Meh celebration at the nearby Taman Jaya before.
We proceeded as planned to the bookshop then headed to Taman Jaya around 10pm. Wow, I was surprised at the scale of the celebration! Huge crowd and there was a even a stage with karoake singing, plenty of lok-lok vans and other food stalls, stalls selling knick knacks etc. There were plenty of oranges in the lake too and I saw some guys fishing them out :)

Left hand behind his back to hide the HUGE stash of comics he bought at Boox Xcess. Hmpph....guys and their "toys"!
Erin was fretting a little so didn't stay long that night.
But really glad that we manage to catch the Chap Goh Meh celebration there that night!
