Not sure if my furfriends are aware of this but they make mooncakes for furkids! See what the hoomans have we also have. My Mummy bought them from the doggie bakery for us.
Mummy's mooncake is made from lotus seed paste with 2 (she's a bit greedy) salted egg yolks inside. Mine is made from red bean paste and no salted egg yolks. Mummy says its not good for me to eat salted eggs. It will ruin my beautiful coat of hair.
Mummy tells me that there is actually a story behind these mooncakes. Many many moons (pun fully intended) ago there was actually no such thing like mooncakes. But less many moons ago there was a group of people who were plotting a revolution in far off China. This revolution was to take place on mid-autumn night.
Now this was all well and good but if you can't talk to all the other revolutionaries to plan this, its not going to happen. So someone came up with this bright idea.
Eureka! Let's make these mooncakes. They are sticky inside so let's cut them open and stick our secret messages in them. We can then pass mooncakes/messages and the Emperor and his bad soldiers won't know how we tell each other when to revolt and how.
I thought this was rather clever. Its better than carrier pigeons because after getting message you can actually eat the mooncakes! What a bonus.
Hope all of you enjoyed the Mid-Autumn festival. I sure did. Yum! Yum! Mid-autumn should come around more than once a year.
