Last merdeka, a mall nearby my housing area hosted merdeka events. In fact they do event nearly every week. One of the merdeka event is marching band.
J was around so after settling their dinner marching we sat down on the stairs waited for the marching band to pass by. It was a bit loud at the beginning, but after a while they got used to the loud music instrument.
I always try to explain to my kids what are they doing, just to help them with new exposure and at the same time increase their vocabulary.
Lantern festival. We have lantern festival every year as I remember living in this area.
We took picture with lantern decorated tree. Indeed, we made some lantern but I didn't snap any pictures.
Halloween trick or treat. Adam has been learning all sort of culture in his school. Halloween is one of them. They have been making crafts and arts work at school. They celebration continues nearby our house when the marina mall organized halloween trick or treat. Kids can wear costume to join the events.
Sophie wanted to be a fairy.
We bought a few scary costumes, but just mismatch and one is way too big so Adam decided to be a doctor. 45 shops from the mall participated.
They just excited to get candies and sweets. So these are their collection from about 15 shops they went by. After all they are free.
The most important thing they had fun.
