Mid Autumn Festival 2010
The theme this month is Old Shanghai during the Mid Autumn Festival. All the stalls are having mooncake promotions. My "FUN" part was when I discovered that mooncakes at going at a discount of 30% here!
This year, I bought the traditional single and double egg-yolk mooncakes, and also snow skin mooncakes with rasberry-blueberry filling and another with yam filling. When the season is over, I have eaten enough mooncakes to last until the next year!
Mid Autumn Festival is also known as Mooncake Festival, Lantern Festival and The Festival of Reunion. Yesterday night, I attended a lantern party and lantern walkabout near my home. A pair of dancing lions lead the way. People from other races also join in the celebration.
