Shopping for Cakes

So….many choices!! They are so beautifully packaged BUT how do you know what the flavor is?

Well, we went Moon Cake shopping and we had a sweet little helper that translated and told us the flavors. And, it’s hard to choose because some of the more beautiful packaged cakes are not the best or popular flavors but then some of the simple packages contain the GOOD cakes ( yeah there are some good flavors). So it took a little bit of time to see what was available and what ones to go with.

We have a few people we want to give cakes to…our driver, our landlord, our old driver, our Chinese friends, David’s Chinese trainees and then there’s security and cleaners at our apartment. Just a small thank you and appreciation on this special Chinese holiday!

Lots of beautiful packages for Mid Autumn Festival~ Moon Cake Festival!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it’s one of the BIG festivals in China! Yes a harvest festival, but not celebrated in the way that we would celebrate harvest in the US or Canada. We love experiencing the different culture and holidays 🙂
