Mid-Autumn Fesitval is all about reunions. Local media personality Sharon Au who recently returned to sunny Singapore from the city of love took the opportunity to catch up with her longtime friend and fellow entertainer Michelle Chong. “Dear Moon, please, grant my wish, that my BFF will soon find her Prince Charming, so that I don’t have to worry about her spending Mid-Autumn alone, or chauffeur her anymore , or finish her food whenever she over orders ( all the time), or protect her from paparazzi, or worry about her leaking ceiling at home… preferably someone strong and muscular who can carry her when her beautiful feet get blisters from wearing a new pair of shoes. Thank you Moon,” Wrote Sharon.
In spite of her busy schedule, the fast-talking Singapore based celeb made sure to spend some quality time with her family. Yi Fong jet setted to China to visit her daughter Eleanor Lee.

To some’ the Mooncake Festival might be a time to admire the full moon and eat so much sweet treats, you might need a seriously long nap after.
