So what do us Crazy Chinese get up to when the Full Moon comes up at this time of the year?
Here’s a video showing exactly that:
When the Moon cake festival comes round, it’s a given that our family all get together for dinner, light up the lanterns and go for an evening stroll under the bright moon-lit night sky. You don’t know how happy this makes my mama when we do this! =)
The Legend and stories behind the Moon Cake Festival
So after the stroll, gazing at the full moon, it comes to my favourite part of the evening… we dig into the desserts – also known as Moon Cakes!
Just like Christmas and Easter, it’s become pretty commercialised with the flavours and range of moon cakes going even more and more exotic. And the packaging – WOW. Asians know how to package!
So don’t be surprised just how much they’ll cost for four of em
One good thing though – just like the Easter egg sales and Post Christmas clearance, the moon cakes all go down in price right after the Mid Autumn Festival as all the groceries stores want to offload their stock
So enjoy the Full Moon my friend and if you do have any let me know below what flavour Moon Cakes you like!
Red bean? Green Bean?
With or without egg yolk?
