The Joy of Mid Autumn Buffet @ Grand Margherita, Kuching

Since we were young, we were told how important is the Mid Autumn Festival especially in a Chinese Culture family. The stories that laid behind, the moral of the story that will remain significant in one’s heart. Normally during Mid Autumn Festival, families will gather together to have a wonderful dinner, to strengthen the bond, to give more love. I remembered when i was young, Mid Autumn Festival is a very BIG festival. Just after dinner, my brother and i will rush to Daddy to ask him to carry the little pink table of ours to the veranda. Mummy will cut mooncakes and we will all sit together around the small tiny table to spend time together. Oh.. not forgetting the fancy lantern we had. Holding lanterns, holding papa mama’s hand and walked around the neighbourhood. How nice. I believed every good moments about Mid Autumn Festival is the memories we had over the years.

When the kids have grown up.. naturally the keen of playing with lantern had reduced. But sometimes even if we wanted to stroll around the neighbourhood again, its the parents who feel shy and reluctant to do it. HohOhoho. But maybe someday i will force them to do so again *grin*

However, although most of us had left out the lantern part, theres something we are still practicing it till today. A wonderful blessed dinner with the loved ones. And awesome enough, Grand Margherita provide you with a best venue to celebrate and enhance the tradition of Mid Autumn Festival.
