元宵節快樂、Happy Lantern Festival

阿丹:今天是元宵節,是互道新年快樂的最後一天吧。祝福大家新年快樂,元宵節快樂。昨天姨姨一整天都不是很舒服,所以一回家晚上六點半就開始睡覺,中間媽咪有幫她買晚餐回來她有醒來吃晚餐並且看CSI到九點然後就繼續睡覺到今天早上六點半。睡得很豬,不過她今天好多了,也沒有感冒的症狀,看起來因為這場長長的睡眠,幾乎讓她康復了,謝謝大家的關心,我有當乖寶寶昨晚都沒有吵鬧喔。
Adan : Today is Lantern Festival, although we don't have holiday here, but in tradition, this is the last day of Chinese New Year. So hope everyone will have a great new year. Yesterday, Michico didn't feel good all day. So, after she back from the office, she started sleeping since 18:30. And Pamilla bought her dinner home at 17:30, she ate some and see CSI until 21:00 and Michico continued sleeping until this morning 06:30. She sleeps like a pig. But she is very good today, with no symptom of flu. Maybe this long sleep let her almost recover. Thanks for everyone's caring, she is so touched!!! I have been a good boy didn't bother Michico's sleep.
小芥:元宵節,沒有去看花燈,不過上週去書展的時候有沾染一下花燈的感覺。
Michico : During Lantern Festival, you may see many place sling lanterns. These are shot at Taipei's very famous shopping district.

今年是鼠年,不過這老鼠還真花俏啊XD~~

2008 is mouse year, this is a very big mouse decoration, you can see many people are taking photos with it.

有點眼熟吧,這是大仔XD~~

Well, this is Arion, hehe~~

我覺得今年信義區這樣佈置還滿美的。

I think this is very beautiful, decorate lenterns like this.
這是我們家附近士林慈誠宮的平安燈。
Here is another lantern view, this is the closest temple near out home, also many latern.

These lanterns are wished great fortune and safe. Each Lantern has different names on it. Very beautiful, right?
祝福大家有個很棒的元宵節,希望大家都可以吃到好吃的元宵湯圓喔~!
Wish everyone have a great Thursday, also have a wonderful Lantern Festival~!
