Mid Autumn Festival – Part I

Some people may called them Mooncake festive cos around this time, chinese will be buying and eating lots of mooncake to symbolise the festival. Some people may also called them lantern festive cos around this time, chinese will be play with the lantern and candles to symbolise the festival. What the heck, the kwai low called them Mid Autumn Festival cos it is Autumn now???

Neway, this year the date falls on 6th October. I started bringing kiddos to walk around the neighbourhood and have yet to bump into any parents doing the same. It is a totally different feeling nowadays celebrating festival compare to my childhood days. I’ll rant about this other time.

Hope parents out there will continue this chinese tradition by letting your child experience what you’ve gone thru during your childhood days. Take this opportunity too to bond with your children and spouse after a hard day at work. Jessieling can do it, why can’t you 😉 ? Have a good day playing with the lantern and say hi to your mom for me :D.

    Well introduce some mooncakes flavor ?(“,)

    The Queen says: It is up to individual preference. For me, if no salted egg I don’t eat! hehe… and I’m crazy over the fruits and nuts flavour.

    That sounds life fun. Cannot really do it over here. Maybe go have a dinner with family or the wife’s friends. But I now I know my children are missing out on part of their ethnic heritage.

    *waves to heavens* Hi Mom!

    The Queen says:  I’ll FedEx some paper lantern to you next year ;)

    aisay man, HQ, make me homesick liao. Can get lanterns and mooncakes of all varieties here, but it just ain’t the same. Summer is over & autumn is here already lah – but it’s just not the same playing niang teng over here where the nights are colder & the kids don’t get bitten by lots of mosquitoes while burning their lanterns by candlelight ………..so far all those I’ve seen are battery operated!
    Hope u have a fun time with your kids anyway!

    The Queen says:  The problems about battery operated lantern.  Instead  of some related theme song, they have some “Happy Birthday” song singing and walking around the neighbourhood with the song playing over and over again!  OMG, sien.
