The Mid Autumn Festival





The third major festival of the Chinese calendar is celebrated on the 15th day of the eight month. It corresponds to harvest festival as observed by western cultures. The Mid Autumn Festival is also known as Moon Cake Festival. It is called as such because a special kind of sweet cake (yueh ping) prepared in the shape of the moon is served as a traditional Chung Chiu delicacy.

Days ago, my Chinese friend Susan sent me this Moon Cakes. She never forgets to send us these delicacy every year just like the Tikoy she’s sending us every Chinese New Year. Thanks again, Susan. You are as sweet as these moon cakes!

Oh my...nagsawa ako sa mga moon cakes when I was still teaching sa Taiwan. I had advisory classes with 30 students each year and they would give me boxes upon boxes of these cakes. It came to a point na ayaw ko ng tingnan....haha. But now, I'm missing them.

Another weekend is done Ate Beng....looking forward to another one.

Btw, natuloy ba yung alis ng MIL mo?

J...have a great week ahead.

I've been quite busy as the husband has been off from work and we have been running around town hoping to get close to accomplishing some projects.
