Mid-Autumn festival in Singapore

The mid-autumn festival is here and we can see moon cakes everywhere in Singapore. Thanks to all the wonderful colleagues for those delicious moon cakes. Chinatown as usual is buzzing with locals and tourists and we had an unplanned quick visit last weekend, to see the lanterns, the shops, the tourists and the shopkeepers trying to coax tourists into their shops. Walking along the footpath I felt an air of merriment and relaxation.Tourists as well as locals were trying to pose in front of the lantern backdrop. Far away from home we do miss all the local festivals but occasions like this do bring back a little cheer except that a great deal of smile and casual, friendly chit chats are missing here ...
