After last year's bad experience with the crazy heat and crowd, I thought that a lantern display on top of an air-conditioned mall would be better. I was wrong. There were impossibly long queues for every single installation. In fact, in order to even walk through the "Tunnel of love", we had to stand in line from when the sky was still bright till after sunset. My older boy even refused to go for a second round of waiting to take a picture sitting in the Cinderella carriage.
I guess Singapore is seriously getting overcrowded. Any special events will be met with crushing swarms of people. *sweat*
At least, the mooncake tea break at Earle Swensen's was a success. My eldest was so thrilled with the passionfruit flavour that he asked to buy another one just for himself! I specially bought Haagen Daz's Harmony Mochi for my older daughter, thinking that it will be less allergenic but her skin did not take too well to it. Thankfully, she thoroughly enjoyed them so I guess the itch was well worth it. *wink*

soooo long to simply view some decorations
