Happy Mid Autumn Festival to all celebrating

Happy Mid-Autumn festival to all who are celebrating. Mid Autumn in the Chinese calendar is celebrated when the moon is at its fullest in the year.

This year post covid we finally got to see the beautiful gardens at gardens by the bay again. The lanterns were truly spectacular.

The huge scene is of Chang’e and Hou Yi i believe.

The colourful lanterns are lanna lanterns. They are Thai lanterns.

There are handpainted lanterns by volunteers.

The rabbit shaped lanterns are the chinese zodiac of this year which symbolise peace, longevity and prosperity

I truly hope you enjoy tonight. A whole year of working hard and now the harvest is here. A time for reunions and appreciating the eternal nature and beauty of the moon.

The old man surrounded by flowering ginseng. Ginseng is a herb i’ve always had an affinity to. The taste, the scent the properties. I think i was influenced by the sheer amount of chinese medicine and medicinal teas i have been consuming. Also memories of consuming ginseng when i was not well. The picture denotes an old man linked to ginseng. At the end of his life and a kind of longevity. A kind of neverending growth and wisdom steeped in the ground. The Earth God. The jade jar collecting drops of youth that come from his wisdom. Any negativity being transformed into wisdom and growth.
