Moon Festival

A couple of weeks ago, Aaron and I headed into Brisbane's Chinatown mall in celebration of the mid Autumn festival. This is a traditional Chinese celebration where Moon Cakes are eaten. We watched some traditional Peking Opera (followed by the same girl singing My Heart Will Go On in English), and a range of artists playing traditional asian instruments or doing dances. It would be an understatement to say we were devastated that we didn't get to see a dragon dance (which was in the advertised program but never happened).

Here are some pics - Aaron tried a couple of different mooncakes. He reckons he could eat them at festivals and that's about it, but HECK YEAH he loved a little sweet cake that looked like a hot dog that we bought from the same bakery. Didn't get pics of that unfortunately...
