happy butt festival

with 4 comments

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.

mum won't be pleased if i were to present her with one of these...

oh my god it is so naughty.....

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 !

  1. 八月十五紅洞洞,吃完月餅,變成青嗶嗶。 Something I seem to recall being said by the old fogeys of the family. I don’t worry about my 八月十五日 anymore – it’s been chewed off by my customers long before …

  4. Thanks for the offer, babes, but I’ll pass. They’re nice novelty gifts, but there’s only so much mooncake one can buy/eat! But I’m sure you know all to well about eating too much mooncake, haha..
