This year I did not celebrate the Mid Autumn festival with my wife and family. Partly due to my mistake as I get the date wrongly and unable to purchase the air ticket home earlier.
Either way, the show must go on. To re-create the atmosphere here, I get myself with a lantern and moon cakes.
The moon cake prices had gone up since and 4 pieces of these cost me RM43.
The highlight of the celebration will be at night where children will light up their lanterns. I already miss the lantern procession at home.
At night, I just stare at the full moon while thinking of the loved one and family back home. Sometimes I just admire how accurate the Chinese calendar is. It is definitely a full moon on this very night.
