Mooncake Festival

Filed under: Events — Yatz @ 11:19 pm

It’s the day tomorrow..The Mooncake Festival..It’s originally called Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhung Chau Jit)..

Little naive kids will be seen everywhere your housing area carrying electronic lanterns walking around the neighbourhood..

Perhaps lighting up candles at the playground on see-saws, slides, or maybe the fence of bricks in their house compound..

I can’t understand why I would carry a lantern when I was still silly young..

It’s not especially entertaining than cartoons..It’s not as thrilling as playing Sonic The Hedgehog on your Sega or Mario Cart on Nintendo..

I kinda felt stupid for “playing” lantern those days..Not to mention the shapes have gone wild these days..

From the old school candle-lit red plastic paper of various animals to battery operated tanks to Doraemon and Pikachu..

Now we even have handmade jet fighter lanterns from recycled brochures..Wtf..

Anyway, Mooncake Festival will be imperfect without any mooncakes..

Thanks to the stupid publicities, mooncakes are now sold at quite a high price..

The better mooncakes from the better “house” are kinda pricey, such as Tai Thong, Kam Lun Tai, Lok Fook (Six Happiness), and Hoi Ngoi Tin (Oversea), just to name a few..

They usually cost around RM50 per box of 4 mooncakes or so (if I’m not mistaken), depending on the fillings..

And not to forget hot-selling Haagen Dazs ice-cream mooncake, which costs RM33 one..

Which means RM134 per box of 4 mooncakes~!! That’s absolutely absurd~!! And it’s selling awfully fast~!!

I, or I mean my family, don’t have the habit to buy mooncakes during this festive season..

Usually family friends or relatives would give us as present..It’s some kinda tradition that friends or relatives give around around mooncakes..
