Yesterday was the Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhongqiujie). I wish it was an official public holiday in Singapore, like it is in Hong Kong where my colleagues got to leave the office by 4pm…but nah, it befell my lot to stay up till 11:30pm on a conference call. Sigh! *shrug* 🙂
Traditionally on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat moon cakes and pomelos together. The children get to stay up a little later past bedtime to light and play with lanterns.
Now that I’m sitting down typing this blog entry though, I suddenly realised I didn’t once look at the moon! Because my attention was either fully occupied on cutting up that wonderfully exotic sounding baked cranberry macadamia nut mooncake or scoffing down one more piece of delectable durian snowskin mooncake. 😛
Um. Heheh. So don’t be expecting any pics of the mooncakes…they be all gone. 😉
