Was at the Mooncake festival celebration in my neighbourhood.
Saw this competition going on which they are supposed to peel the pomelo and saw this two aunties struggling hard to peel off an unripe pomelo i guess. They lost but still try hard... but give up in the end as it is really hard.

Mooncake festiva aka Mid-Autumn Festivall is a chinese festival in the lunar 8th month during the full moon. It is also the chinese valentine day (if i dun recall wrongly).
There are 2 stories behind this festival, one being the Chang-E story and the other was a revolution story.
