Mid-Autumn Festival Home BBQ Party


The best way to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival to is gather all family members to relax and enjoy grill foods. We had a wonderful Mid-Autumn festival BBQ party on last week.


BBQ party was meant for the kids, in order for them to easy grill the foods, i use skewers to hold all the foods. I cut all foods into small pieces and skew them into skewers.. So i was busy from morning till evening just to make foods into skewers..
