Tonight was the first night of Auckland's famous Chinese Lantern Festival, celebrating the Year of the Dragon. It was a great evening, as A) it was overcast and not as sweltering as it usually is (we usually drip sweat everywhere - urgh), and B) they had so many lovely new lanterns this year. Here are some pics of xiaobellsa, Mum and I:

Next year we have GOT to go when it's dark; gorgeous as things are at about 7-8pm, it's still light and you just don't get the same effect...
[And WHY did I get rid of all my dragon icons? I'm cheating with a sea serpent one here :-(]

That does look like a huge amount of fun indeed - and I totally think when it's darker it would be even more amazing.

Yeah, I think the lanterns will look awesome when it's dark. We always leave when it's only just getting dark, so next year we have to plan it differently!

You guys look like you're having a great time! I totally just found out when I was doing my friends cull that I wasn't getting notifications of your posts :(

E-heh - I think I've only done one post on LJ since then anyway, so you haven't missed much! ;-)
