Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival


A big part of the grocery shop where I went this morning was all in red in celebration for the mid-autumn festival.


I saw many local Chinese costumers buying cartloads of fruits, sweets and rice cakes for gift-giving. Last year, we received a platter of goodies from our Chinese neighbors. I wonder if we'll receive one this time...

  6. The red is eye catching! When shopping for food, this brilliant store attracts me like no other color. I'd purchase a few things if I visited this ruby room...

  8. I think you do because Chinese believes in giving and it will be back a hundred fold. But I like you to receive the "pakwa" the red envelope that has money inside ^_^ That would be cool!! Happy Tuesday!
