Moon Me

The largest supermarkets in our city have an assortment of products from all over the world to suit the needs of our diverse ethnic population. Last month I saw a mouth-watering variety of moon cakes on display. None, however, looked like this:



In Singapore, they serve a "T-back" mooncake, made for a mid-autumn festival. In Cantonese, the 15th day of the eighth lunar month is a colloquial euphemism for buttocks. The mooncakes are inspired by the Chinese phrase “ba yue shi wu” which means August 15, but  also means “buttocks” in Cantonese.

For the full scoop on mooncakes, and lots of great pictures, go to http://myitchyfingers.wordpress.com/2013/08/22/butts-of-desire/


Thank you, Tommy, for sharing this with us.

That's so exotic and erotic.
Have you ever been to China or the

I'd love to go there.

Hermione, in my travels around the world, I had the good fortune cookie to visit this vast and beautiful country called China. Saw the Forbidden Palace, Walked it famous Wall. Won a game of Ping Pong, which caused PANDAmoniam, and ate sumptuous mooncakes, that were 'out of this world', so to speak, etc.

Loved the Moon Cakes and could not help to think that that would be a great name and theme for a spanking party.

Too funny! And too pretty to eat!

Hermione said...

Six - What a well-travelled gentleman you are.

Prefectdt - Brilliant idea!

Erica - I think I would varnish one and save it.
