Mooncake Festival Mini Celebration

Mooncake Festival falls on the 15th Day of the eight month in chinese calendar. Sorry I blogged it late~ =X


It's our first time celebrating Mooncake Festival ourselves!
Must have Items for us to celebrate.
1. Mooncake!
2. Paper Lanterns!
3. Tea! (So we actually brought real tea pot for creating the atmosphere)
4. Food!


The actual festival was called Mid-Autumn Festival, 中秋節.
The Legend of Houyi and Chang-e. (also known as The Moon Goddess of Immortality) 


We created our own way of celebrating it, so we are not really Traditional. =X
As ages pass by I think is fine to celebrate any occasions in your way.

Paper Lanterns and Candles~

Home made Sushi by Mom and Me~ I know it's weird having Sushi on Chinese Tradition, it doesn't matter we just want to eat =X

The Sushi Roll has 2 types, Meat Floss (The brownish portion in the Sushi Roll). Meat Floss taste awesome, 1 of Asians Favorite! Tasted a bit sweet and yummy~

Added Kimchi in the Sushi Roll too but it's below the top layer so can't be seen. It's another twist for Sushi Roll too, makes me feel like in Korea for a few seconds. =X

The Left Japanese Fried Tofu Skin Sushi, taste wonderful... It's actually Spicy Mayonnaise Tuna matches superbly well. And the other 1 is Egg Mayonnaise with Egg Roes. Yum Yum...

What does it do with Long John Silver?! Me and Ling grabbed our favorite Chicken Fillet and Black Currant Juice at LJS before meeting Emi, we are always craving for LJS. =D

Emi & Ling.
Emi dressed specially for Mooncake Festival, very matching. =D
Me and Ling were casual. =X

Emi was hungry and went to buy Mcdonald's Fries.

While waiting for Emi, me and Ling quickly took a SnapShot~

Emi: The New Limited Mc's Cheese Powder Shake Fries are Delicious!!
She's hungry~~ Can't wait to go picnic~

We quickly set up our picnic location~
Tea pot looks Japanese and Sushi too~ Doesn't matter as long as it taste yummy =X

Emi can't wait to eat~

It's really dark, can you see Emi is pouring Tea for us? =X
And if you notice there's a fake Moon right at the top corner~ Bright!! It's my daddy's toy light.

Suddenly, it drizzled a bit. But the sky was pretty for the night. =)

The night totally worked for us, carrying Umbrella and the Lantern, on top of the sky there's a light it was actually Traditional Paper lantern pretty huge that people put up the sky.

Ling bought a lot of Candles, we wanted to create a big heart shape but coz it was raining and we couldn't do it. :(

But overall this Mini Celebration was pretty fun ^^

Anytime Anywhere Anything that you have, when you feel like creating a special day, go for it~ With any resources you have just do it happily and have fun with your friends, it will make an awesome day!~ ^^

  11. @Jess: Yep Babe Food was great :O
    I posted the pics late =X

    @Jennifer: Hun Yeah I had an awesome day. ^^ Hee Hee I love to show food no wonder I am so round :p
    Mooncake, my favorite is the most traditional flavor, there's smooth Lotus Paste (Sweet) & (Salty) Egg Yolks~ I love it without the Salty Egg Yolks.

    Due to how new generation people created a lot of new flavors, so many that you cannot imagine. =X Do come visit any chinese asian countries or maybe china town some day during MoonCake festival^^~

    During near Mooncake festival, in Singapore Mooncakes can be found anywhere, in the Bakery Shops, Cake Shops, Supermarkets, Restaurants & Cafe etc anywhere =D

    I am sure same goes to Taiwan, China, & Hong Kong etc countries too ^^~

    @Nana: Hi Babe, yes you can celebrate anytime it's really fun with friends ^^~
