Mid Autumn / Mooncake Festival Celebration 2009


Mid Autumn / Mooncake Festival 2009

A "Bring A Plate" party was held at our place last night, in celebration of the Mid Autumn Festival aka Mooncake Festival aka Lantern Festival.

While waiting for the rest to arrive, we started the party with activities like balloon blowing and Texas Hold 'em Poker, just like the one we used to play online.

We had fruits like mandarin oranges, mango, pineapple and green apples.

Some random foreigners "crashed" the parade and took some photos with us.

While everyone was enjoying and having fun with the fireworks, an Indian guy came towards and broadcast-ed us live using his webcam.

We even attracted those people in our neighborhood to watch us playing from the balcony.

The party then followed by the crazy fun "Balloon-Stepping Game" and poker games until 4 in the morning. Last but not least, I'd like to thank all of you for coming and bringing those food over.
  • Cynthia and her sister, Nova for the Sago and Palm Sugar Dessert.
  • Henry and Crystal for the mooncakes and hot chips.
  • Liho and Mandy for the fruits and beer.
