Mid Autumn Festival And Mooncakes Galore
Mid autumn festival! It's also known as Chinese Moon Festival and falls on the 15th moon day of 8th Chinese lunar month. It is said that the reason for celebrating the festival during that time is because the moon is at its fullest and brightest at that time.
Some malls had already put up stalls and decorations for the festival and sale of mooncakes, as early as August.
I don't celebrate this festival although I enjoyed playing with lanterns during the festival when I was smaller but one thing I love and Zaini does too, about this festival is the mooncakes!
We love, love, love mooncakes! And every year we indulge eating mooncakes that comes in all sorts of flavours. Lucky me, because I don't need to buy any - I usually get plenty at the office.
Apart from the fun of eating the sweet mooncakes (gotta watch the amount we're eating though - all those sugar!), I love collecting all the lovely mooncakes boxes. I kept quite a number of them and use the boxes to keep my receipts and an assortment of stuff. ^-^
