Mid-Autumn Festival / Mooncake festival

Tomorrow night will be Mid-Autumn Festival/ Mooncake festival.. It is celebrated annually on the fifteenth August of chinese lunar calendar. This festival is considered the second most important festival after chinese new year.
"For thousands of years, Chinese have related the vicissitudes of life to changes of the moon as it waxes and wanes; joy and sorrow, parting and reunion. Because the full moon is round and symbolizes reunion, the Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the festival of reunion. All family members try to get together on this special day. Those who can not return home watch the bright moonlight and feel deep longing for their loved ones."



and i have been celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival away from my family for 5 years now....huhu...you can buy mooncakes, teas, lanterns, you can still see the same moon, but the feel would never be the same compared to sitting all 3 generations together, eating mooncake, sipping chinese tea, under the moon and tell stories.......i missed that...

For all of you who aren't so sure what chinese do on this day, hehe, simple, go out to any streets and im sure there will be big celebrations :) It's simply a day of rejoice and reunion, and of cos, to savior the once-a-year-only-available mooncake!!!!!!

gonna get a halal one to share with my good friends, hehehehe......ade yg nk join ? :)
