Last night, I attended Mid Autumn Festival gathering organized by MUCCLS with the bunch and my baby boy (: I never expect that there were actually so many Chinese students in Mahsa and what's even better, we even had our Malay and Indian friends celebrating with us. Mahsa is definitely expanding in numbers of students, hopefully it's gonna improve and be even better in years to come.
“ The Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節), also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival or Zhongqiu Festival, is a popular lunar harvest festival celebrated by Chinese and Vietnamese people. The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar. During this festival, there will definitely mooncakes and brightly lit lanterns. Some even practise match-making, burning incense in reverence to deities on this particular day. — Wikipedia

The event was indeed a great success, everyone left happily sweat-soaked after 3 hours of fun and laughter. Plus, there were a lot of positive feedbacks from the attendees. Hopefully there will more events like this in the near future, I will be absolutely looking forward!
