Lantern Festival Dinner

[Saturday, 25 September, 2010]

Since my elder brother and I had early dinner hours ago, we were hungry and decided to go to the MacDonald’s. My mum and younger brother did not want to eat but they tagged along with Lucky. It was a pity that we could not bring Lucky into the restaurant.

I slept at 4am and woke up after 1pm. My lunch was noodle. I tried to work on my website but ended up dozing off.

It was a special evening. My aunt came over and the entire family, together with my younger brother’s friends, went for the Lantern Festival Dinner held by the Tanjong Pagar Community Centre. My mum was furious that when she attended it a year ago with my brother, one of the aunties who shared the same table tried to take other people’s portion and thus she made sure that we had ten people to fill the table.

The food was great but the caterer was stingy with the drinks. Even when my cup was only one-fifth filled, the waitress tried to put in ice cubes to fill it. Most of the time, my orange was diluted. Later, we got to know that they were running out of the drinks and “their boss was going to purchase it”. We did have our refills later but the service was not fast enough.

There was a Chinese character guessing game like the previous years and we got six answers correct at one go, and decided to give up the other fourteen prizes to others. However, there were some leftover questions and thus the lady asked my younger brother to go over to finish them up.

After reaching home, we realised Lucky had given us presents while we were gone. We cleaned up the poo and two piles of pee before my younger brother and his friends went down to the third storey to play lanterns.
