Today is the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month and it is a Full Moon day. Every year on this day, Chinese all over the world will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
|The legend involves a woman who flew to the Moon.|
Traditionally, people would give food offerings to Heaven and the Moon, and recite poems to praise the beautiful Moon. There are several versions of legends linked to this festival. If you are interested to find out more, see here.
|Lanterns, tea, fruits are all parts of this Festival|
|Mooncakes, best enjoyed with Chinese tea|
|I had a lantern very similar to this|
|The most typical type of paper lantern. I always burned up mine because I was careless.|
|An alternative is to use battery-operated lanterns. Safer for children and careless kids, hehe.|
|During this time, lanterns of all kinds of shapes and sizes are on sale|
|My mummy always asked me to choose my own lantern. I want to be a great mummy too.|
Tonight, when I was walking back from playing badminton, I took these photos of the full moon while thinking of those I love back home.
|View of the full moon from my flat|
|Isn't she gorgeous?|
When I looked at the moon, I saw these:
|My first baby, Rich Boy|
|My second baby, Sasa|
Piggies are actually out in the 'wild', on their FIRST ever camping trip with Cindy and Bill. I really hope they are admiring the full moon too. I can almost hear their wheeking sounds :)
To my family, I want to say I love you & I miss HOME!
To my babies, mummy loves you very very much!
Please forgive me for not being with you now.
Hope you are enjoying the beautiful Moon too.
