Mid Autumn Festival 2015 - Hazy Moon

Today is the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, where most Chinese celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival. This year the moon looked so red and hazy cause of the haze blown over from Indonesia Forest Fire. The haze is really bad , choking us, all my siblings are coughing and visited the doctors.

I looked out of the window and saw the moon so red and hazy, decided to zoom on the moon. My camera is Panasonic Lumix and could zoom 20X, it looked as if the craters on the moon could be seen or is it the haze. I am not sure but definitely is not the cloud cause I did not see any clouds passing by the moon when I took the photo.

Haze is back

The haze is back in Singapore. It was due to burning of plantation in Indonesia. The companies involved were so irreponsible for polluting the air. Affecting neighbouring countries like Singapore and Malaysia and the worse affected were their own citizen in Indonesia. Kalimantan having PSI like 2000, scary figure. Here our PSI are above 250, already many falling sick with cough and eyes irritation.

There's government subsidy for medical fees for haze related illness, for those earning below $1800 or senior citizen, children and low income groups. For more information, view haze subsidy.

Mid Autumn Festival Decoration 2015

Times passes fast, it's going to be Mid Autumn Festival soon. It falls on 15th day of the 8th lunar month (i.e. 27th September 2015). Streets of Chinatown in Singapore were decorated with beautiful lanterns.

I know my grandnephew will like this PSY lantern. He loves to dance to the music of Gangnam Style.

Spotted this beautiful mid autumn festival decoration at one of the supermarket.
