    Thumbs up Chinese moon festival

    Anyone here, celebrate the mid-autumn festival? I've celebrated once before with friends, and this will be my second time. (Yeah I know it's already past) but I'll be celebrating with friends on Oct. 1 Looking forward to great Chinese cooking!

    Boy, you sure are gullible, Ryu! They can't see the moon in China! China is on the other side of the earth, and the moon is above the USA. They didn't even know about the moon until they started coming to the west. They thought Marco Polo was crazy, talking about the moon.

    Man, some people just don't have any common sense.

    already been answered.

    I can translate it into mandarin if you'd like, by the way.

    My girlfriend gave me a couple of moon cakes if that counts for anything. The moon bits are a bit weird, but the rest of the cake was very tasty.

    I love moon cakes! We just got a new brand that doesn't have as much of the egg and more sweet filling. As a gwailo, my tastebuds are not used to eating a dry egg yolky center. I also eat an entire cake in one shot-great when downed with milk, while everyone else cuts tiny portions off,"just for taste". Then again, when I drink espresso, I ask for it in a normal cup,and "not one of them sissy-boy teacups"-um, I might also add, when partaking of sake at the local sushi bar, I usually end up at the end of the night with what appears to be a miniture bowling alley on the bar.

    To be honest I actually like the center. Last year I was trying my dammdest to make them from scratch too..... I only ended up having to have my friend snatch the dough away from me and do it right.

    This year will be better! I swear it.
