What could possibly be hiding within this beautifully crafted (cardboard) box?! Well, you've probably guessed it... I mean, what other Asian festival is around this time and makes people go out and spend exorbidant amounts of moolah on cute little artistic foods? It's the Mid-Autumn Festival!!! And the pride and joy of the mid-autumn festival... beautifully crafted mooncakes. Wikipedia has a whole write-up of interesting "did-you-knows" for the Mid-Autumn festival, so I won't bother you all with the details... just click here.
I can't wait until the Mid-Autumn festival draws to a close. We'll be eating mooncakes for at least 2 weeks after the festival... why? Because the day after the festival is also the day when mooncakes go on sale :)
