I didnt go on it!
Kinda regret that I didnt!!
Should have hopped on for a pic or something BOOHOO


Came up with this stupid excuse that
since Im born in the year of the horse,
I shouldnt sit on it LOL

No la, I didnt bring long pants and covered shoes
(these are the basic gear for horse riding)

Took the coach back to the ranch after dinner
&&&&&&&&




So awesome!
These were prepared for us!
My very first time lighting up a sky lantern!
Don’t have to go all the way to Taiwan to do it
(sua ku hahaha)

I don’t know if its legal in sg
Might probably get stopped by a police on patrol or something







My wishes are sooo coming true!





Jeffrey – ‘this chinese character how to write ah?’
Went around to peep while the rest wrote their wishes on their lanterns
Why is it that almost everyone wants to write their wishes in Chinese?!


420239_10150576180058220_735003219_9135817_1190981640_n
Our lantern is ready!!


20120211_214229

my list could go on and on if only the lantern was longer LOL
so many wishes, will take a longer time for God to approve
Now all of u know what I’ve been wishing for LOL




MEN! their wishes are always so GENERAL
and in NUMBERS zzz



sweetheart Rafael writing his own wishes!
Aspires to be a pilot! Smart boy!

They had to light it, and RUN AWAY before it starts to blast off!
They took a video of the whole process
& it was full of shrieks and screams haha so epic

When I saw the box I was like
Oh its just those sparklers thingy that goes
eeeee uuuu BOMB
BUT


20120211_215613
It was spectacular!


It was the closest Ive been
The sparks from the fireworks that fell felt like they were gonna fall on me!!

the fun bunch of fellow friends!


After all that excitement
We headed to the stable for carrot feeding!


20120211_221003
I can never out pose his wacky poses



20120211_221312
Smokey wo men lai le!


Carrots to compensate them
Must have given them a shock with all that BOOM and POW
from the fireworks HAHA

20120211_221358
the correct way of feeding the horses carrots!
unless if you decide to feed them ur fingers Smile



20120211_221408
we had to grip very firmly when they chomp off the tip of the carrot!


20120211_221419
hubby all amused



20120211_221320

When the carrot is too short to grip,
this should be the way to feed them.
& ya! u guessed right
I dont have the guts to do that HAHA
