mid-autumn holiday

today is "mooncake festival" or "lantern festival" or mid-autumn festival. whichever way you refer to it, what's important for me is it is holiday. haha rest day. yeah, i know, im such a bum! i learned that it's one of the two most important Chinese holidays (aside from the lunar new year). i remember people gathering round Victoria Park to witness the moon at its fullest and brightest. lanterns lit the surroundings and local delicacies are sold. in the office, we partake mooncake slices. and that 1/8 slice is still 'big' for me. heck, it's kinda sweet for me. something like it's too tasty and packed that il be so full after eating it.
