Season of Mooncakes

Next tuesday is the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival and already if you have been to Clark Quay, would have spotted the light up and festivities along Singapore River. For me, I live near Chinese Garden which is decked out in its annual lantern parade but unlike Singapore River, charges $12 per entry. Still, passing by at midnight on the MRT last night had me captivated.

But honestly, what is Mid Autumn festival without mooncake?

Took this at Raffles Place, one of our main financial hubs. These teenagers sit around the pavements, making sketches of the Dali figure in the background, oblivious to the hustle and bustle of the lunch crowd all around them.

I’ve noticed more and more of these marketing campaigns around where free stuff are given out in exchange for contacts on a mailing list, or just to create brand awareness. I saw this booth along Boat Quay a couple of days back, and I stopped by for a glass of free beer.
