Mid-autumn Festival

It's mid-autumn festival where the moon is supposed to be at its brightest. We don't really care about the different legends surrounding this auspicious date, we just want to sit outside and admire the moon.

So I brought mooncake and wine to the patio. Rusty tagged along to beg for food.

CH cannot live without his laptop, so he did some work under the moonlight.

Growing up in the kampong, we had so much fun carrying lanterns and playing with candles. Kids these days have completely no interest in such traditions. Sad.

The people at the nursing home all gathered near the window to see the moon after dinner this evening. It was fun to see.

I dont think there's an official name or festival for it. It's just known as the full moon on the Autumnal Equinox day I think...
