Japanese Dinner!

On the night of Loy Krathong, the boarding students set out to float away negative thoughts and bad energy and welcomed a bright future ahead. The Loy Krathong festival this year happened on the 22nd of November. It is a tradition that usually takes place on a full moon night of the 12th Thai month. It is believed to be a ritual paying respects to the Goddess of the Water showing gratitude on the plentiful of water and ask for forgiveness in the ensuing pollution.
Floating the Krathong is believed to seal away misfortune and bad things of the past and asking for good luck in the future.The city of Chiang Mai was full of festivities as beautiful Krathongs were seen floating down the waters and brightly lit lanterns dotted across the night sky.

Hoping that all bad luck has been floated away for this year!
After floating our krathongs in the water, students enjoyed a night of Japanese food. Japanese food has always been one of the favourites of boarding students and it did not disappoint!

From sashimi to tempura, everyone had a great meal with an ice cream to finish off.

It was a night emptied of any negative thoughts and bellies full of delicious food.
