中秋节快了!!! Happy moon-cake festival! Hope you guys having fun ya! This year moon cake festival is abit bored for me coz brother is in Brunie, Sister is celebrating her anniversary and dad got to work so only left grandma, mom, me and mao mao..
Yesterday dad told me as years goes by the celebration of chinese festival sometimes loses its meaning to it and become too comercialise. I do agree coz as society improve, company have to catch up the trend and invent new flavours and ideas to attract cutomers, but mostly in the short run, not long term. Slowly, moon cake loses its meaning to it.
The story of moon cake (short summary) ~
during the Yuan dynasty (A.D. 1280-1368) China was ruled by the Mongolian people. Leaders from the preceding Sung dynasty (A.D. 960-1280) were unhappy at submitting to the foreign rule, and set how to coordinate the rebellion without being discovered. The leaders of the rebellion, knowing that the Moon Festival was drawing near, ordered the making of special cakes. Backed into each moon cake was a message with the outline of the attack. On the night of the Moon Festival, the rebels successfully attached and overthrew the government.
