I saw some articles online about the Gardens By The Bay's lovely lantern display so I thought it would be nice to bring the kids there to celebrate mid-autumn festival this year.
Before we went, the children ate their favourite ice-cream mooncakes for tea break. I even sourced for jelly Hello Kitty mooncakes for my no. 2 who is on a gluten and dairy-free diet so that she wouldn't feel deprived.
We have never tried the OCBC Skyway despite visiting GBTB a few times before. Thus, the moment we reached, we went up there to enjoy the scenery and the breeze. Sadly, Joram was afraid of the height and Joshua had to carry him all the way. Kinda explains why he looked so grouchy in the family shot. Sigh...

After a decent dinner at the Western Bistro, we headed out to try some interesting street food. The kids were naturally attracted to the rainbow-coloured ones. LOL Not all of them tasted good though. Hahaha... One appalling thing was that a stall was selling fermented beancurd and stunk up the entire area. That horrid smell, coupled with the hot and humid weather, made the whole experience rather unpleasant.
Next, we strolled around and tried our level best to admire the lanterns and lights while ploughing through the throngs of people and sweating profusely. I was so utterly exhausted at the end that I had to postpone our annual lantern walk and playing with sparklers in our own neighbourhood to the next night. I guess we'll not go back ever again for mid-autumn festival.
