Happy Mid Autumn Festival



It is the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Lunar calendar and millions will be celebrating the mid autumn festival, better known as the lantern or moon cake festival in the west today.

We at the tummies' are going to have a nice dinner at home; hopefully there will be clear sky so we can finish off the meal with some moon cakes under the bright full moon.

If you commute along Nicholson Street (Fitzroy end) you might have seen this giant goldfish lantern hanging in front of a nondescript terrace house. This creative household has been putting up colourful and quirky displays during Christmas, Chinese New Year, Valentine's day, Easter and mid autumn festival for the past 2 years. We would like to thank them for lightening up the mood and brightening up the rather dull corner in our neighbourhood all year round!  Well done guys! Perhaps a Diwali display next?

We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy mid autumn festival!
