Lantern Festival Part 2-Pesta Tanglung Muhibbah TMP

It was the first Lantern Fiesta organised by the housing community where my parents stayed in Puchong. It looked to me that lots of sweat & effort poured into making this event a success. The fiesta was indeed "BIG" in many ways.......VIPs invited, huge participants, varieties of pot luck foods, activities, games, lucky draws, prizes, parades, karaoke singing & etc etc.........


It was held at the housing recreation park where the twins visited almost every other evening....


Before the event started, there were games organised for the kids!! My 'chicken' boys finally participated in the game once they'd comfortably watched the 1st round of game & got themselves some pressie !!!

Initially, I had a bit of under estimated the food that would be served as our dinner tonite but I was definitely wrong this time. Though it was all under the voluntary pot luck style but I was simply impressed with the "varieties".........you go check out !!! NO SPONSOR, all out of the good deed pockets of the communities, some cooked themselves, some buy......i salute them......at least i know my own housing community wouldn't be able to do that!!

But then as all the hungry "US" waited & waited for the organiser to blow the whistle so that the hungry stomach could be fulfilled, we were all "forced" to WAIT & WELCOME some super VIP guests. Waited & waited.....the clock striked 7:30, not even the shadow was sighted. Arghhh, i think i'm not the only one cursing them, hehe..........slightly after 7:35, yeah finally heard MC mentioned the arrival of a member of parlimen, state assemblyman & bla bla bla !! BUT, still have to wait......committee chairman speech, Y.B. speech & etc etc..........aduh, it was such a torture I can tell you!! Hate the feeling coz it made me feel as though i'm one of those 'dumb' that couldn't afford a dinner for my kids..... But since the food looked so drooling & my twins were happily enjoying themselves making friends, I "pei min"/gave face & sacrificed a bit also worth lar....... When all the VIPs finished with their craps & the MC announced : "you may begin with the food"........you can imagine all those hungry ghost rushing, ouch....such an unsighty scene !!

But luckily, the foods were really in a very handy quantum, so guess everyone had a full stomach, i even saw some packing home the unfinished foods !! So, lets check out....

Curry puff, sponge cakes, jelly moon cakes.............

Spaghetti...........looks drooling ehh? There were also various version of Curry chicken.....

Fried mee hoon, pastries & cakes................

Kuih - Muih

Satay pun ada lar..........

Malaysian all time favourite............nasi lemak bungkus !!

Cakes & Pastries..........

Nicely cut & pack fruits & junkies...........

My favourite jelly moon cakes.........

Nothg special.....all know it's hard boiled eggs but SPONSORed by my mom mah.....hehehe

Half way through eating, my cheeky Scot managed to caught a glimpse of the arrival of the below monster..........haha, the Mr. Clown!! Guess what? While all the other kids were thrilling welcoming his arrival, my 'chicken' boys ran & ran & ran their life away from this creature that they were so damn afraid of. Sean wasn't that bad........sooner he became warmed up & approached him for a 'sword' balloon but not with Scot. He was extremely frightened that he remained at his hiding place for a long 5 minutes & was so reluctant to get near him though he yearned for the sword balloon so much. After much persuasion & convincing, he still refused. Then as the last call, I said I will carry him along as I told him Mr. Clown will not give mumy the balloon if the doesn't followed. Out of no choice, he agreed........clinging to my waist so hard, oh my boy!!


There were also lantern competition & lucky draw but I was too exhausted to even bother to participate. The boys were running around the park, both d maid & me were so tired of chasing & looking after them !! So, tomorrow first half of Sunday will be a recuperating time before attending another lantern party at night !!!

Oh dear... you make me so hungry now... especially at this very moment at 5:50am. Those food look gorgoues and i want them... all.

The clown person... hmm it reminds me of my Josh. She was scared like hell when this clown came to approach us during last Christmas. So we never got the chance to take photo with the Christmas Carol. I was so frustrated coz the clown dressing was so the nicest one... any, we never have this kind of community gathering here. Well not at my Taman. Everyone like so "sombong". What to do...
