This traditional Chinese festival is more commonly called Mid-Autumn Festival in Malaysia.
Today is the 15th of the 8th lunar month and it marks the conclusion of the month-long celebration. According to the tradition, the festival comes with eating of mooncakes. The highlight of the occasion is a sumptuous dinner on the 15th day.
It is now getting common for families to dine out on this day. Still some families hold on to the tradition to homecook the dinner.
We had a wonderful homecooked meal this evening!
Happy Mooncake Festival to all my Chinese readers!
