23th January 2012...
first day of Chinese New Year,
first time i played a flying lantern... hehe :)
it has been a long time, i waited to play this kind of lantern. at last, my dream comes true. last night, i went to TC with 'him' (can't tell his name, he's too special for me & NOT FOR OTHERS!). as soon we arrived there, we heard and saw fireworks first from car park. there were too many and colorful and so bright. so, he brought me to the coast to see clearly the beautiful sparkling flowers in the sky. but, we don't get an opportunity... to watch it, more closer.
when standing with frustration inside, a glowing red lantern has given us interest and happiness back. one family, Chinese's family was lighting up the candle inside the lantern, they were too excited as according to their belief, if the lantern flies away, all of our wishes will be fulfilled. we saw they wrote some hopes on the lantern before lighting up it. after analyzing how they flied the lantern, asking people around where can i get it, we decided to buy and fly it by ourselves (as it was our first time with flying lantern).
a blue flying lantern, the lantern that he chose at the shop. i still remember, we can't wait anymore to fly it as we immediately opened, widen the lantern and lighted the candle. after the candle inflamed, both of us hold the lantern face-to-face and waited until it ready to fly. that was the most moment i loved, the moment to see it fly away over us. fortunately, Alhamdulillah... the lantern flied away although it stuck at the trees as the wind changed their direction.
it was the most happiest moment which happened in this January of 2012. i hope, there are still many surprises waiting for me in the future... Amin.
