Mid Autumn Festival at Albert Complex

September 8, 2008 at 11:15 p09 (Default)

 Beauty from the moon, Seong Ngoh is here again and there was atmosphere of celebration at Albert Complex near Middle Road….

 Cantonese opera singing by enthusiasts from Kampong Glam Community Club. Dont see this type of performance much nowadays…

 What is mid autumn festival without the must-eat pomelo? At $3, look like there is a bumper harvest this year! Beside the famous tambun pomelo, there were some from Thailand too…

 Moon cake stalls from hotels and bakeries are cropping up like mushrooms after rain. Before my mum passed away last year, i used to get her favourite from Fosan Restaurant in Ipoh. Our favourite is cameradie nut mooncake.

 Business is slow in the early hour of the day…

 Tanglong or lantern, used to see a lot of this traditional type when i was young. Nowadays, they come in variety of design and colour.

 Everyone favourite, hello kitties.

….and in keeping with pace of time, we have plastic and electricity type as well. not  my favourite though. i still prefer those lantern hand-made with translucent type paper glued onto wire frame in the shape of rabbit or gold fish.

Are you still young at heart and carry a lantern nowadays? If you do, what is your favourite lantern? Do you still celebrate the mid-autumn festival?
