Well the 2006 Chinese lantern festival was very popular this year. It was my first visit to the Albert park event and what lanterns I managed to see were pretty cool. The crowds and the heat were phenomenal. I didn't stay too long as I was dragging round one tired man and two under 14's. The crowds just became a bit much for us after a while so we headed home and stopped off for an ice cream on the way home.
I think i'd happily go by myself, but trying to move a group of 4 through the crowds was pretty stressful.
