Don’t you just find it charming, when you see mooncakes, lanterns and other paraphernalia associated with Mid-Autumn Festival making their appearance practically everywhere in hotels, malls and restaurants.. I do.. It also reminds me of my childhood where I would run around my garden – yup, when my grandmother was alive, we had a lovely huge house with a lovely garden with many shrubs and trees… so I would be hanging those colourful plastic paper lanterns with a candle in them in the shape of dragons or fishes -my favourites on the trees and enjoy the atmosphere…
Now that I have grown up, it still fascinates me to see lanterns, but it also kinda irritates since these days lanterns are made with plastic in cartoon shapes and work with batteries and emit awful music.. hahahah..And well, when it comes to mooncakes, you can see the chefs try to outdo each other in coming up with different flavours of the traditional pastries, some yummy.. and some downright bizarre – at least it is to me… hahaha.. and of course.. those mooncake boxes… how can you resist those pretty mooncake boxes… Lol
