Mid-Autumn Festival

According to Wikipedia,

Mooncake (simplified Chinese: 月饼; traditional Chinese: 月餅; pinyinyuè bĭng) is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival / Zhongqiu Festival. The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching; mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy on this occasion. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important Chinese festivals. Full link here.

Today is my very first Autumn festival in China, though didn’t expect much because I still need to work in spite of holiday.

But munching with these delicious pastries can be fun.

So to all readers living in China, Taiwan and Vietnam, a happy happy Mid-Autumn Festival

and a delightful Lantern Festival to all of you in Malaysia, Singapore & Philippines 🙂
