Mooncake Festival a.k.a Mid Autumn Festival@ Sibu

Yesterday was Chinese Mid Autumn Festival. Moon cake is a must delicacy.

I tried a Yong Sheng Moon cake with Yoghurt flavour as its paste. I really taste like a yoghurt and I like it.

After a hefty dinner, we went to Rejang Park traffic garden where every year at night, starting from 7pm, the kids will throng the place with lantern or "tanglung"

Modern and traditional lantern was sold nearby. Also illuminate hand band was sold for RM1

The modern lantern now are mostly powered by battery to activate the LED light (some comes with music). The traditional lantern is lighted up by candle. The traditional one also had a risk of accidentally burned by the candle.

Kids were having fun with their lanterns at the park. It was a nice experience walking around and soak into the atmosphere.

Your pics here really bring back memories of Mid-Autumn festival I had when I was younger... feeling nostalgic now..

I really prefer your kind of paper lanterns at your hometown. I hardly see those in Singapore nowadays. When come to the celebration of Chinese festivals, that kind of traditional atmosphere is diminishing in SG.

And I don't think many SG parents brought their kids to the parks to have fun with the lanterns and eating mooncakes while appreciating the bright round moon too!
