14 Sep, 08 is Chinese mid-autumn festival, or mooncake festival. At that day the moon will look round. In Chinese 'round' means 'all being together', 'complete', 'perfect'. So that day should be a day for all family members being together. As to mooncake, there are several stories, which even I don't know too much details for.
As usual, i will spend that day on my own. I always since i came to Australia. I will give a call to my parents in China and tell them i miss them.
I think I need to read some books about design patterns, software architecture. I still have a lot to learn.
