Mid Autumn Festival

 Drums abound …

Drums abound …

In Malaysia, we get mooncakes. But in the Far East - Japan and Korea mainly - the celebrations were more elaborate. At Publika this weekend, we bumped into some performances while we were doing our groceries. Unfortunately, we were too early for the main event at the courtyard which due to start an hour after we left. The place was still empty although the chairs and sound system were already in place.

 Kimchi for the win!

We got a glimpse of the performances however, by a group of Korean expatriate children playing their traditional drums in their costumes. Unfortunately both Idlan and Irfan were not into it and decided to go ahead with their shoppings.

I should have got the timing a bit better the next time but from the looks of it, there were quite a crowd already gathering. There also plenty of pop-up stalls selling Korean wares and of course, kimchi. Should have been great fun!
