Dear Matt and Mar,
Sorry, haa haa haa, should have written this post about 3 months ago, I am slowly going through the photos library lol. At the rate I am going, I should be able to catch up all of 2017 posts by around 2019, haa haa haa.
[Nov. 2017] This was Loy Kratong, of course the whole day the whole school was in high spirit. Personally at the beginning of the day, I had no intention whatsoever to Loy Kratong (a literal translation is ‘Float a float/basket’, haa haa haa), the custom is a really good one, you are suppose to let go of your hatred, worries and fears and let it float away down the river.
You’ll grow up to find out, I am not so fixated on customs and traditions (I do try my best though, lol), especially this time, your mother was on a business trip in SG and so with one less pair of hands I was more than less keen, lol. Loy Kratong would also have meant an almost impossible task finding a parking spot, but that was solved now that we have a driver.
By some miracle I was also home at a reasonable time, haa haa haa haa, Mar was already by the door with her handmade kratong (from school) in hand, Matt was also looking forward to go… of course I could always rolled supper and breakfast together into one and eat it the next day, haa haa haa.
Another great coincidence, the drive took us to another temple (not the one we usually go to), and it was brilliant! The organiser was top class, and they had to be, because to get close to the river the people (huge crowd) had to go on a floating pier and it was bobbing badly, haa haa haa, much to our delight :-)
Instead of heading home straight away, we took our time to enjoy the various activities around the temple, it turned out to be a fantastic evening, thanks to you two for convincing me to go after all, haa haa haa.
