Tanglung Festival

So today is Tanglung or Lantern Festival. I read in the newspaper that the moon tonight is supposed to be the biggest. If you want to get to see a moon that big, it will have be in 2015 next time.

My Chinese friend wanted to celebrate this festival. According to her, if Chinese doesn't celebrate it, nobody in France will. Is true, but I don't know how long we will insist on celebrating something from our origin. You are in France and you are expected to integrate.

I have no mood to cook nor prepare to welcome 11 guests. But since I have promised now I need to look in my head what I can prepare to feed these people. It's going to be potluck, easier. I bet the French will not feel comfortable to have the buffet style, but what the heck, it's my house we are talking about.

I plan to do some currypuff, bake chicken wings, curry chicken plus meehoon, French hams, potato salad... my friends will bring in dessert and mooncake.

I hope the weather is going to be nicer. Gosh, this cool breeze is driving me lazier and lazier...
