MOONCAKE FESTIVAL @ CARPENTER STREET, KUCHING


Happy zhong qiu jie! Whether you celebrate it or not, it's an gluttonous excuse to fatten your booty! The Carpenter Street's Mid-Autumn activity is an annual affair, which helps liven an otherwise sleepy night street.

This trip was more of a photographic stroll, as I had just berbuka puasa. These are few samplings of the food and activities on the whole stretch of the street. Had it not been for the Muslim's fasting month, there is usually a strong Malay presence in terms of food and cultural performance at this all Chinese affair. Who needs a unity band here? If you don't have it in your heart, no amount of super glue will hold it together.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
