Mid-Autumn Festival

You may read about it here.

When I was 9 or 10, I wrote short essays on the origins and legends of the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Duan Wu Festival, as soon as I heard them from my mom. I felt that I needed to write them down while I still remembered. What if, as time passed by, I were to forget? What if everyone else forgot as well, or never knew them in the first place?

Had I knew then that there would be Google and Wikipedia in my future, I needn't had bothered! Seriously.

Happy Mid-Autumn to everyone, and Happy Birthday to Ah Pek K, who was born on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, thirty-something years ago.
