Today is moon cake festival aka mid autumn festival. This is celebrated by the Chinese community on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calender every year.
Paid a visit to the Inter-Cultural Mooncake Festival long Carpenter Street, Ewe Hai Street, China Street, and Bishopgate Street with my family last night.
Not much stalls this year. Not many people too compare to previous years.
Bought some food there:
Left: Pork burger.
Right: Cotton candy.
Left: A pillar of cotton candy. It stood out from the crowd and stalls.
Right: Bought belacan bee hoon too.
How are you going to spend your mooncake festival this year? Nothing much for us, it’s just another day, had our mooncake since months back and no more left ;p
Some of the mooncake we bought. The box of mooncake was bought actually for my sister to bring back to UK. The rest you see here, we had eaten them last month.
This is one new type of mooncake that we bought, it’s called creamy milk tea. The brown part was lotus paste and the middle part was the part that had milk tea flavour. Nice or not? I don’t know! I’m not a mooncake lover but there’s really milk tea flavour in this mooncake.
Wish you all a happy mooncake festival and have fun!

The number of lanterns on display are much less than we have here.
jam, yea… cut cost mar… not only that, the temple that used to hang up many colourful lanterns are closed for renovation. It’s pretty quiet this year, it used to extend till Old Court House but this year it just stopped at the arch.
