Happy Moon Cake Festival

Today is the celebration of Moon Cake Festival, that is also known as Mid-Autumn Festival. This is the photo of the moon captured tonight. It's a bit hazy these days and today's level of haze is rather high as everything seems blurry and the weather is a hot and stuffy. Not a good day to be outdoor enjoying a parade with lanterns. I am missing my childhood when my brothers and I would be parading around our neighbourhood with lanterns. Oh, how I miss those days!

Here is an old Chinese poem called Jing Ye Shi by the famous Li Bai:

And a cute animation to wish everyone Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
