The myth behind the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is the story of Chang'e, a beautiful lady who ate the elixir of immortality and flew to the moon to become the Moon Goddess.


Besides gorging on copious amounts of moon cakes every year, from August to September, Singapore's Chinatown will be decked out with decorations depicting the beautiful goddess, alongside her pet rabbit and lanterns, like this:

An image of Chang'e has been posted on Facebook along with the caption:
