Getting set for mid-autumn

It's not even the end of the Chinese seventh lunar month or Hungry Ghost Festival month (last day will fall on 15 Sep) and already, the stalls in the shopping malls are selling mooncakes for the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival. This festival falls on the full moon day of the Chinese eighth lunar month which corresponds to 30 Sep 2012.

There are so many varieties to choose from until it's impossible to try them all. Nevertheless, I had my first bite at this year's mooncake delicacy yesterday. As an aside, I should mention that I try to avoid all the newfangled variations that manufacturers are wont to hit on their unsuspecting customers. No, it is only the traditional mooncake tastes for me!
