Photography Practice: Mooncakes International



This is actually a belated post. The Mid-Autumn festival was last week! Oh well, better late than never...

We do not really celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival - 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar here in the Philippines. It is another regular day. But we often give mooncakes to our family, friends or neighbors.

Here are some of the mooncakes we received.

The one above is from my sweet Korean neighbor. Actually, I don't think these are mooncakes. I think these are rice balls. My Korean neighbor gave us these colorful sweets to celebrate their Autumn festival. Maybe this is their version of sweets to give during this season...




This is a mooncake from Vietnam. Our beloved President of Couples@Work Fellowship just came from Vietnam and he brought us these goodies! The picture above still in the original wrapper. The picture below is without the wrapper...





Don't you just love the lotus flower shape of this mooncake?!? I do not know why there is a number 15 stamped at the center though. More mooncakes next week... :)
