Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2011! 中秋节快乐!- RT/WW

Shopping for mooncakes at a mall

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the important holidays in our Chinese calendar. Traditionally on this day, family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn moon and eating moon cakes and pomelos under the moon together.

colourful lanterns for the kids

The children will be carrying brightly lit lanterns. Kids love this festival because it is the only time they can 'play with fire'. :P

Chinese chess mooncakes

A week before the festival, I was shopping for mooncakes to gift to my elders and business associates. There is such a mindboggling variety of mooncakes these days. I had fun tasting mooncakes with  different fillings.

I was fascinated with a set of Chinese Chess mooncakes. You can eat your opponents chess pieces if you win. :D

It is a costly set ..... S$78 for it. :P
