Have you ever bought something just because you wanted the packaging it came in. I am definitely guilty of it. In this case it is the tin that I wanted. Similarly, I choose to buy mooncakes that had lovely packaging. I loved the tins it came in. I use the tins to keep my jewellery supplies, beads, gemstones, threads and pieces of tatting. They are quite useful.
It is that time of the year again. To celebrate the mid-autumn lantern festival, mooncakes and Chinese tea should be enjoyed under the full moon. Light a lantern and see the children enjoy themselves under the moonlight. I remember my grandmother singing a song when my sister and I walked round the garden with our lanterns.
