Today is the Mooncake Festival also known as The Mid-Autumn Festival which falls on the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month of the Chinese calender. It is believe that the moon tonight will be the roundest and brightest.

Traditionally at night, the Chinese will sit outside the garden, admiring the moon, accompanied with a slice of yummy mooncake, and a nice cup of Oolong tea.

Meanwhile the most happiest of all are the children who will be carrying colorful paper lantern outside and lit the whole front gate with colorful mini lanterns. Ah... I miss those nostalgic moments...
