ZHONG QIU JIE!

Today is Mid Autumn Festival in China! 
A holiday that is observed to acknowledge the day that the moon is its biggest and brightest during the year. It's also recognized as one of the most romantic holidays; lovers spend the night together gazing at the moon. Perhaps the most traditional and anticipated aspect of the holiday are Moon Cakes...
Like Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving, the Chinese eat Moon Cakes on Mid Autumn Festival. 
I'm going to celebrate by making a trip after work to a Taiwanese coffee shop for some sea salt iced coffee and a shanghai egg tart >.<
Gong xi to all of my Chinese readers!
