Never tried them, nor been to China, but would love to one day. Nothing wrong with Yum-Chow, if that is how it's pronounced. Is this tradition, or something we as westerner's has labelled as such. Sorry for being off-topic.

Just a note, it's a full moon in Western Australia tonight. Just sipping one for you Jingtian.

Thanks. One Mid-Autumn Festival, the moon in China is the roundest. In other parts of the world, there is also bound to be a full moon that day.

Yum-Chow? I guess that might be a Chinese restaurant or something.

The moon, It's as round as it will get this month.

Yum-chow is maybe an Australian derivitive then. It is the lunch time steamed baskets on trolleys in chinese restaurants, that get walked around for you to look at and select dishes as they pass.

Yum-chow might be the name of a Chinese city, but I'm not sure.
Yangzhou fried rice or Yangchow fried rice is very popular.

yes its sometimes made of red beans (often has cooked duck yolk on the side) and u should eat it during the mid-autumn festival, its the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calender.
