Moon cake festival 中秋节


Today is the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calender, we celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival or the Moon cake Festival.

There are hundred types of moon cakes available in the market with fanciful names. My only love is Nutty mooncakes, like the 1 and 2 in the picture above.

Mooncake no 1 is homemade, plenty of almond nuts and melon seeds. Mooncake no 2 is mass-produced, from a famous brand I liked.

Wishing you all a Happy Moon Cake Festival.

今天是八月十五日,我们欢庆中秋节,也是吃月饼的时候。

目前市面上有上百种的月饼,打着标新立异的名字。我的最爱是照片中的果仁月饼,或称金腿月饼。

月饼1是手工月饼,月饼二则是工厂制造。

在此谨祝大家中秋节快乐,好好的享受月饼吧!
