Happy Mid-Autumn Festival

September 22, 2010 is Moon Festival
In Chinese Calendar, it's the 15th day of the eight month
Moon Festival is associated with grapefruit and mooncake.
(I guess grapefruit is in season and it represents the shape of the moon!)

Here's one that I like, not too sweet mooncake...
In Taiwan, it's a holiday!
Mostly people here are having barbecue or
get together party while gazing the moon!

中秋節快樂!!!
