The Chinese Moon Festival

The Chinese Moon Festival is on the 15th of the 8th lunar month, this year it is on September 22nd. It’s also known as the Mid-autumn Festival. Chinese culture is deeply imbedded in traditional festivals. Just like Christmas and Thanksgiving in the West, the Moon Festival is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese.
Iconic gift is the moon cake which will be given to family and friends. Running gag is that after a while you will get back your very own boxof moon cakes after it has be given away and be passed on a couple of times 😉
Weekend at Puli
Hui and me spent this weekend at the urban resort Puli in Shanghai, Jing’an in a nice suite
Quite nice hotel and a great spa, but service was so lala (mama huhu 马马虎虎). Way too expensive…
The new Shanghai Tang autumn/winter collection was presented this Friday at Moganshan lu art district 莫干山路艺术区. (I used to live close by).
Shanghai Tang is an international clothing chain company, founded in 1994 by Hong Kong businessman David Tang Wing Cheung and now controlled by Richemont.

A total of 31.9 million passengers passed through the airport in 2009, making the airport the 3rd busiest in mainland China and 23rd in the world.
Yesterday, I increased the 2010 figure by one 😉
