Mid-Autumn Festival is observed on Oct. 4 this year. Do you think that it’s still a long way to the celebration to be talking about it? Time flies so swiftly that before we know it, it’ll be here and gone.
Although the Mid-Autumn Festival is a major Chinese festival in the lunar calendar, I don’t really observe it even though I am Chinese. The only thing I do these days is eat the mooncakes. Too old for lanterns, I guess.
Moreover, instead of looking forward to the mooncakes, I am more excited over the boxes that they come in. These boxes seem to get more and more attractive year by year, don’t you think so?
Anyway, I usually end up celebrating festivals alone, while travelling. Not sure where I will be this Oct. 4. In case I am at Resorts World Genting, I have already researched on where I can find the most mouth-watering mooncakes in fascinating flavours. If you are in Genting Highlands as well during the season and plan to get a taste of some of the best mooncakes on the mountains, do read on.
