Happy Mid-Autumn!

It is Mid-Autumn today, so wishing everyone, a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival. 

Not much of a celebration this year, we did bought a box of mooncakes from Cosway and a friend gave us a lovely mooncake set. So we are going to enjoy them slowly.

To uphold the tradition and festive mood, yesterday we went to Batu Kawa Old Town for its mooncake festival bazaar. This was my second time visit during this festive to this old town; first was many years ago when the kids were really small. This round we brought our mil along.

We were fortunate to find a parking space but need to walk a distance to reach the town. We didn't mind the walk as we could enjoyed the waterfront view. 

It didn't take long when we reached the temple. Many people were offering prayers there. We passed by the temple and took some shots before walked further to the old shops. 

The bazaar started right at the entrance of the temple and the streets were packed with stalls and people even though it was not even 6pm. 

Any moon sighting from your side tonight?? I wonder if we could see moon tonight but it has been good weather and clear sky after rain in the morning. We did see a big round yellow moon at Batu Kawa!! With a cute rabbit on top of it!!

Some stalls and food shots I took along the street. The kids sure enjoyed themselves and indulge in those sinful snacks!! Luckily it isn't that often they do that. Lol. 

Sweet potato balls stall

Potato stick

Bak chang

Mooncake stall

Fruit candy stall 

We spent almost an hour there, bought some snacks, dessert and grilled fish home.  By the time we left, the small road were jammed.

Happy mid autumn festival to you! Now that no children in my household I don't celebrate it anymore. I used to celebrate it when I was a child. This year I just bought one box of mooncakes to give my friend.

Seriously, I don't even know Batu Kawa has Old Town. Will put this in my list to visit when going back Kuching in future. Happy Mid Autumn Festival to you and your family.
