Packaged Mooncakes!

It is still the eight month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Just last Sunday, 14 August, it was the fifteenth day of the Chinese eight month and the moon was supposed to be at the fullest and brightest. I didn't remember seeing the moon as I was too preoccupied with other things. First, there was a gathering of friends and relatives at home and elsewhere too; as the Mid-Autumn Festival or Lantern Festival was celebrated. I heard there was as usual, a big crowd at the Taiping Lake Gardens. Youngsters had come out in droves to light candles and lanterns and the Lake Gardens would be a pretty sight indeed despite the jam and all. And just the other day, How and Chin Heng had each given me a mooncake and they were really packed in such a beautiful way these days. Yes, I do think that commercialism has set into this traditional Chinese Festival but what the heck, it's still an enjoyable event and most certainly, I'll look forward to it next year and if I have the opportunity, I'll pay a visit to the Lake Gardens too and take some photos to be posted here! Meanwhile, just enjoy this...

Beautifully packaged mooncakes...
