Mid-Autumn Festival Fish Lantern

LOL...a girl friend jetsetted in last week and brought me this mini fish lantern...cos she remembered me getting all excited and making her promise to get one for me when I saw pictures of large ones in previous festivals...

The funniest part is that she only brought back 3 lanterns in total:0ne for me...and the others for her 3 year old niece and 3 year old nephew. *lol!

...I guess that says a lot about me! ; )

p.s I was showing off the lantern to my baby nephew's delight when my mum was around and I said to her: "It's my lantern- no giving it to away to any of the kiddies!" hehe, gotta protect one's toy collection...LOL!

Where does that Festival celebrate?
I googled it, I didn't find any useful information, I just suppose that is part of a Chinese Festival. Indeed, it's quite amazing that lantern, it getting excited me too!

You always surprise me with you sophisticated English! (Someday I'll write as you do! :P)

Cheers, Zx.

it is any part of asia-wherever there is an asian community!

I'm sure you could make a better robotic version that can swish it's tail and swim in real water!

it's not that impressive when you grew up in an english speaking country, if I could do chinese or spanish wow that would be impressive!
