Two years ago (yes I know..where has the time gone?) I was spending my first weekend in the city since flying to New Zealand, we just had some afternoon tea with some friends and we were driving back home. But instead of driving all the way home, our friend who stopped in the middle of the road next to the Albert Park. “Get out” he said “Trust me, go up to the Albert park to the Lantern Festival and wait for the fireworks”
Confused, we stepped out the car and I remember asking Le Boyfriend… “What the F### is a lantern?” To our (good) surprise we weren’t expecting what happen next, display after display of different scenarios and characters and sculptures made out of paper and lights, all of it to welcome the Chinese new year, I quickly became an annual favourite.
