Mooncakes Festival quite happenning in Penang. Most of the shopping complex will have special sections to sell the mooncakes and tanglung.

Normally I will "sibuk2" there to have a look at those things which is very nice and colourful...but never tried the moonncakes till now...I know there is halal one and mooncakes with yolk quite famous here but I don't like egg especially yolk...(:
