2008 Mid Autumn Festival

September 15, 2008

Yesterday was the Mid Autumn Festival, and today we have a public holiday because on the night of Mid Autumn Festival, people usually stay up late, and so it’s the day after that’s a holiday.

some pictures for your viewing pleasure:::

The following are some mooncake boxes… the mooncake boxes are in themselves a kind of art too!

Hotel Grand Lisboa -> “Iced” Mooncake from Generic Cake Shop

These are the fireworks tha we went to see up on my building’s rooftop… many of our neighbours came up to see as well. I might be going again for the next few rounds in the weekend.
I think these fireworks are from the UK.

What is the mid-autumn festival without lanterns?

And this is supposedly the round round Moon, but, I decided to play with the camera settings… haha! You can try that too!

This weekend was fun. Check my Flickr account to find more photos!
