Mid-Autumn Festival





Observation of the full moon at Repulse Bay, Hong Kong Island.


Together with my family friend and her brother in law’s family went to Repulse Bay æµ…æ°´æ¹¾ to view the full moon. There were many international high school students already there when we arrived. They invaded the 7-11 convenient store to buy soft and alcoholic drinks. Others brought their own snacks and glowsticks.

On the beach, hundreds of groups illuminated the sandy ground with glowsticks and small candles. Lighting candles is a Chinese tradition during Mid-Autumn Festival in observation of the round moon. We also eat mooncake with two yellow egg yolk surrounded by sweet lotus paste.

Mooncake, dragonfruit and Mandarin oranges are special Chinese delicacies!
