Kimmie and Tea Tuesday bloggers, here's a feast for your eyes..
The chinese community will be celebrating the Mid Autumn Festival
tomorrow, Wednesday 21st September.
We were in Chinatown to check out the festivities..
and I was "intoxicated" by all the colors...
Mini "piglet" mooncakes for the children
Sweet pomelos (they are the bigger version of grapefruit)
Lanterns are everywhere of all shapes, sizes and origins...
As kids, I remembered lighting up our lanterns and paraded around the block
with other children after dinner.
The Mid Autumn Festival is also a time for reunion dinners, and in our family tradition
my parents will prepare a feast for all of us. We will be gathering at my mother in law's tomorrow evening for a family dinner where she'll dish out our favorite dishes..
It is also a time for gifting..
where we give and also receive mooncakes packed in beautiful boxes..
we received these from friends and if you're an altered art enthusiast,
you wouldn't want to do anything to these.. :))
they're simply too pretty...I'd rather find ways to preserve them rather..
Baked mooncakes in a box
and Happy T to you!!
