Happy belated Mid-Autumn Festival to you all!

Seems like quite a celebration in HK, I don't even remember if I was there for the festival... but this year looks amazing, check out the video: And also some nice piccies: I don't really eat mooncakes anymore, my favourite is the duck egg yolk in the middle, but you can get healthier mooncakes nowadays. If you don't know what they look like, here's a pic of one: "Typical mooncakes are round pastries, measuring about 10 cm in diameter and 3–4 cm thick. This is the Cantonese mooncake, eaten in Southern China in Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau. A rich thick filling usually made from red bean or lotus seed paste is surrounded by a thin (2–3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs. Mooncakes are usually eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea."

You can get some yourself at your nearest local Chinese supermarket e.g. The Asia Market in Dublin.

And even the pandas got some special mooncakes... awww...
And look up in the night sky and see a very round bright moon.
