    Join Asha and her friends from The Amazing Sarong and The Incredible Basket, as she moves from her cosy shophouse to a housing estate in Toa Payoh. The buildings are tall, the apartments are new. Asha's home even has electric lights! Her family begins the rites of blessing for their new home using a beautiful oil lamp. Suddenly, the power is cut and everything goes dark. But Asha has an idea‚ÄĒwhy not share the lamp's light with their new neighbours? The children also have fun with shadow play, and even light sparklers with the lamp. See how one brilliant light brings new and old friends together.¬†
