Mid Autumn Festival - 24 September 2018

Times flies so fast and so many things have happened while my blog was growing cob webs with leaking drips of putrid water. Muahahahaha I hope to be back in active & regular mode to update my blog posts. Many are still kept inside the archives after being nicely written and prepared. I have lame excuses for hibernating my finger to click the post.

It will be our Mid Autumn Festival in another 10 days. I really miss my childhood days when my parents bought me coloured lanterns almost every year. It was so fun to parade around the neighbourhood streets with my young friends to show off. Our lanterns used to be made from wired figurines being wrapped tightly with multi coloured and painted glass papers. We just had to light a small candle inside and hold it up with the fastened bamboo stick. These days the kids have plastic ones using battery operated lights for their lantern parades. That is too modern and looks no fun to me. Time has changed including the moon cakes.




Look! I am very proud to show off the 2 pretty moon cakes I have received from Blogger Small Kucing.  She is so thoughtful and creative to make them every year. While she gave some to her close friends, she also took in many orders from across the country. Please order yummy ones from her!



 Look! The 'roasted' piglet moon cake is so cute from the top view!




I had a good laugh to see the backside! What did I see?? This pig is complete with eyes, nose, tail and even an ANUS!!!! Muahahahahahahaha

So clever of the manufacturers of the moon cake moulds! They created an anus! Time has changed. Thank you so much for making me laugh -  Mamarazzi Small Kucing!




I would like to wish all my blog readers and silent readers from the whole world a
Happy Mid Autumn Festival.

  2. Very nice of mamarazzi to give you homemade mooncakes. Her mooncakes are amazing and too cute.

    I didn't buy any for own consumption this year. Luckily we got a mooncake plus gift set from Starbucks last night otherwise we wouldn't be eating any.

    I was just talking to my man last night that we burnt most of the paper lanterns last year after having them for few years. Time to buy new one for the kids. I stillborn the,traditional paper lanterns. More authentic. The fun of lighting up the candle, place the lanterns on sticks and walking around with them are the joy and tradition we should uphold.

    Happy Mid-Autumn festival to you and family in advance!

  3. Aiyo, that one we call the tail-lah, not anus...wakakakaka! :D Yeah, the mooncake is very cute...what is that thing supposed to be on top of its head?...behind the ears. Every year I don't need to buy any mooncakes coz whole family don't fancy eating mooncakes! ;) Happy Mid-Autumn festival to you and your wifey.

    Happy Mid Autumn Festival to you and your wife in advance, TM. May you be blessed with all things good this season. The lanterns I used to burn is nothing fancy but I love it. I use the coloured paper ones and once burned down my laundry line because I hung it all there ...kakaka.

  14. I prefer paper lanterns. I always get some for my boys. But the best part about playing with lanterns is actually playing with the candles. Lighting them and seeing them melt is simply satisfying. Haha.
