tigers + mooncakes.

happy mid-autumn festival.
while i am part chinese, i never really partook in festival activities; to be honest, i don't even know the meaning behind it. an old employee and friend [who moved back to taiwan] is here on vacation and brought some delicious mooncakes making this a good time to learn about it. here's what i found out:
- mid-autumn festival or chinese moon festival is one
of the most important festivals for the chinese people;
it's an official holiday.
- ancient chinese believed the movement of the moon played an important role in the changing of seasons and agricultural production. they worshiped the moon and gave offerings
of thanks for successful crops.
- round shape of the mooncake symbolizes reunion of family. eating mooncakes together with family and enjoying the moon at its fullest is an important part of the festival.

  3. Cool top and pants. I love moon cake, but some of them have the egg in the middle and it's salty - tastes weird.
