Dear all,

First of all, Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to all Chinese members! As some of you may know, it's been a festival tradition for us to appreciate the bright full moon on Mid-Autumn night. To us, a bright, round full moon symbolises family reunion, abundance, completeness and harmony. The unstable weather here in HK these few days prevented us from such an opportunity. However, I'm not too upset by it as I have my own "round full moon" at home - this white jade snuff bottle that I recently acquired from the Dr. Sylvan and Faith Golder sale at Bonhams NY.

Hope you enjoy and I wish take the opportunity to wish everyone of you an abundant and enriched life.

Best to all,
Samson

Dear Samson,

     I agree with George.
The connection between 'Bai Yu' (White Jade) and 'Bai Yue' (White Moon) is wonderful.

     Last night we saw the beautiful Full Moon from my Sukka, first night of the Feast of Booths, Sukkot. It was right above the Old City Walls, and really stunning.

      Best,
Joey

Dear Toni-Lee,

Thanks! I feel that simplicity is subtly dominating in my taste for snuff bottles... Roll Eyes
