Fancy some tea and mooncakes?

It was the Mid-Autumn Festival yesterday (Sep 21), and you know what that means. Loads and loads of mooncakes and moon gazing. Read on to find out how some of our local celebs celebrated the occasion.

1 of 8 Yvonne Lim and Hong Huifang had a barbecue party

According to Yvonne, it's custom to have a barbecue party during the Mid-Autumn Festival in Taiwan. But they don't carry lanterns as much as we do here.

So now that she's home, Yvonne decided to throw a BBQ dinner with her family, as well as Hong Huifang, Zheng Geping and their son, Calvert Tay. Truly the best of both worlds, right?

But that's not all...

  • 2 of 8 They also FaceTimed former Mediacorp actress Ivy Lee, who's based in England

    'Cos the more the merrier, right? Just check out the smiles on everyone's faces. As Huifang put it in her caption: “Even if you are far away from home, [we] can still celebrate the festival together.” Aww…

    (P.S: That's Ivy's director husband, Raymond Choy, in the picture with her).

  • 4 of 8 Xu Bin chowed down on mooncakes with his son Ethan

    Oh, and check out what's in Ethan's other hand. According to Xu Bin's caption, it's a homemade lantern that three-year-old Ethan made in preschool from recycled materials.

    Apart from letting children understand and experience the Mid-Autumn Festival, the school also raised children's awareness of environmental protection and reused the plastic bottles. I think it is very meaningful! wrote the actor. Now that's a one-of-a-kind lantern we can get behind.

    If you don't have a picture of you all dressed up in your Chang Er best like Jaspers and Kelly, make like Wang Lei and simply Photoshop your face onto an image of the Chinese goddess of the moon. So simple!
