When I was a kid growing up in a shophouse in Little India, we used to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival by hanging up lanterns in the back lane behind where we were staying and eating mooncakes and drinking tea. It was lots of fun and I’m glad Anya got to celebrate in a similar way last night. My parents are moving to a new block next year and the place they’re staying at will be torn down. So mum’s been feeling a bit nostalgic and decided to get some neighbours together to celebrate downstairs with lanterns and mooncakes since it’s the last time they’d be at the old place.
