A funfair can be a very special childhood memory for the most of us. Early this month, Stephen suggested to us (Henry, Wee-Peng, Koh-Yiaw, and I) to go to the funfair in town to bring back this wonderful memory. After having our suppe, we went to the funfair although it was already 2:30 am in the morning.
It was a small scale funfair located in Melaka Raya, occupied only the size of a football field. The place was nicely decorated, fully lighted with flickering and colorful lamps, and filled with beautiful and cute cartoon graffiti. At the time we went, there were not many visitors, and most were youngsters.
Stephen and Henry were the most excited ones. Both of them visited the side stalls and played games like wheel of fortune, bingo, toss the ring and catch little duckling, hoping to win toys for their nieces and nephews. They didn’t disappoint the children and won many prizes including a big doll. In fact, a funfair wouldn’t be fun without these interesting prizes.
There were also rides like bumper cars, ferries wheel, pirate ship, spinning aeroplanes, and other stimulating rides. It was fun to observe others to play and how they screamed like crazy. Old folks like us didn’t go for any ride, probably losing our bravery as we turn older.
It was really enjoying for us. I was doing photography for a wedding dinner before we went to the funfair, therefore I had my camera with me to capture photos of the place, the folks and the fun we had. Thanks to Stephen for inviting us. May all beings be happy.
