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!

The tea gang moved the weekly meet out of Meng Lei's office to Cafe Palmelia at Premier Hotel yesterday.
The shift was at the arrangement of Steven Wong who treated us to some goodies at the coffee-house to celebrate his first anniversary in United Daily as a reporter.
The invitation was very heartwarming and I deeply appreciated his hospitality.
Steven, all the best to you in your career as a journalist!
