Moon Gazing, Mooncake Grazing
Cooks prepare mooncakes at Cantonese institution Luk Yu Tea House in Hong Kong on Aug. 28, 2014.
Mooncakes are gifted during the celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Lunar calendar, which lands on Sept. 8 this year.
Traditionally celebrated by the Chinese and Vietnamese as a harvest festival, families gather over a meal to share mooncakes and watch the full moon, a symbol of completeness and unity.
While mooncake styles vary from region to region, they are typically made of a sweet bean paste, such as lotus seed, surrounded by a thin crust, and some may include salted duck egg yolks in the filling. They are shaped in a wooden mold before being baked in an oven.

I am legitimately Scottish. I can officially say yes. Yeah, I am from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland.

arya appreciation week » favorite relationship: arya & jonShe yearned to see her mother, and Robb and Bran and Rickon…but it was Jon Snow she though of most. She wished somehow they could come to the wall before Winterfell, so Jon might muss up her hair and call her ‘little sister’. She’d tell him, ‘I missed you’, and he’d say it too at the very same moment, the way they always used to say things together. She would have liked that. She would have liked that better than anything.
