This year I celebrated mid-autumn festival differently, I celebrated in Jo’s place with his family. Few days back Jo’s mum invited me to join them for dinner during the actual day of mid-autumn festival. Since I couldnt make it back home to celebrate with my family, I decided to join Jo and his family.
I went over to his place after work, the traffic was insane! I spent an hour and a half on the road from Hartamas to Puchong, it was supposed to be a 25 min drive. I hate KL traffic, it’s horrible; building more bridges or lanes doesnt make anything better, you are just wasting our money!
By the time I got to his place, his mum was already cooking and the table is already full with yummy dishes.
Their neighbor decorated their back yard with colorful lanterns.

Different type of Mooncakes.
some of the dishes… simple but delicious!
My very tired looking face.
All the dishes were almost done… Yummy
I was so surprised when Jo’s mum took out the pomelo! It has been a while since I had one…
It took me a while to finish peeling, so susah…
I enjoyed peeling it, it felt like I was peeling a huge orange.
After 5 minutes of peeling, IM DONE! Super sweet and juicy yummm
Then it was time to have mooncakes! Jo cut a tiny small mooncake into 4 slices.
baby was the most excited one when it comes to mooncake or fruits but I didnt feed him any.
Mini Moocakes are the best, not too filling.
Then we had cakes that I brought over, super full!
After dinner Jo showed me a surprise present, something that I really NEED for my work. Bamboo Pen & Touch.
Jo didnt have time to wrap the prsent but it was sweet enough.
unwrapped the present.
I always wanted a Bamboo pen & touch when I was back in the States but I thought I might not need it since Im fine with using the touch pad. Now it’s easier for me to draw or edit pictures in Adobe Photoshop, love it!
Then Jo’s mum got us some of this ( I have no idea what’s the name of it). This is a must have snack during Mooncake festival.
I had fun hanging out with the family and I hope I’ll get to celebrate next year’s mid-autumn festival with my family too.
Well, it’s time to hit the bed because I haven’t had enough sleep since last Thursday.
My birthday celebrations were insane! Indeed, the most memorable birthday!
