It was Deepavali. Alice’s family was having an open house. Alice’s parents had invited the neighbours to come to their open house. Mrs. Tan came wearing an elegant cheongsam, while Puan Siti wore a pretty headscraft and baju kurung.
Alice served cookies and drinks to her guests. Alice’s brother Mano and his friend Ramli happily played with sparklers. Alice’s sisters, Lily and Susu made a flower kolam using coloured rice. Meanwhile, Alice’s grandmother lit the oil lamps to celebrate Deepavali. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
