Colourful lanterns attract adults and children alike
LANTERNS are one of the common items seen during Mid-Autumn Festival.
Those who observe the celebration will often savour different types of mooncakes paired with tea.
Children and adults alike also have fun with lanterns, such as the round colourful paper lanterns or translucent plastic ones.
These lanterns, of all sizes and shapes, are carried and displayed as symbolic beacons that light people’s paths to good fortune and prosperity during mid-autumn.
Hence, establishments like shopping malls also take the opportunity to decorate their premises with lanterns to commemorate the festival.
Shops around Klang Valley are also wooing customers with an impressive variety of lanterns.
