What I did in the weekend. Kai Chung School reunion.

May Lu Yieng Chu, Yek Jau Lang, Ling Liung Ong & Jenny lantern take their wish up the sky and grant them everything they wished for.

The grand finale of the Kai Chung School reunion. Francis Chen, the home based organiser had the idea of releasing these giant lanterns. He had to get police clearance to release these Kun Ming lanterns. Many of us released them, it was tricky to get enough hot air. I was busy taking photos. we were to make a wish before the balloons floated up and up and up.

My wish was to have more of these reunions, despite the time and effort the organisers took to plan this, the expenses of those who returned from all countries of the world.  I also had a prayer of thanks, that my students who were 14 and 15 when I taught them are now my LAU PENG YOU aka old friends.

Thanks to Francis, I have an unlit lantern so I can take it back with me to New Zealand to share it with my present students. It is going to stay put in my room.
