happy butt festival
it is almost time for one of the most celebrated holidays in the chinese calendar – the mid autumn festival. the festival falls on the 8th month of the 15th day in the lunar calendar and ever since i was young i have been repeatedly told that the moon on that night is the roundest and brightest of the year.
in cantonese when people say pat yut sap ng ( direct translation for the 8th month 15th day) it also means your butt crack. well i suppose your butt crack does bear a slight resemblance to a full moon. i am not sure about being bright though. when i walked past the g.o.d shop on hollywood road last year – i burst out laughing at the moon cakes or rather the design of the moon cakes. butt cracks.
i think they make lovely presents – visit g.o.d/ goods of desire
oh which by the way, happy mid autumn festival. i just had my first moon cake of the year. i have learnt the hard way that the way to enjoy a nice moon cake is to eat it slow, relish it and never gobble down the WHOLE thing. it makes you really really ill !
