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!
