Do you know that the roundest moon can be seen during autumn? Celebrated by many East Asian countries, the Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節) falls on the 15th day of the 8th month on the Chinese Lunar Calendar and has been celebrated since the Song Dynasty in China two millenia ago. This year, families will gather over mooncakes, lanterns and a spirit of thanksgiving on 1st October. The celebration is also known as Moon Festival, Mooncake Festival or Harvest Moon Festival as ancient Chinese emperors worshipped the moon in autumn to thank it for a bountiful harvest.
In the spirit of reunion with loved ones, we are excited to launch our Mooncake Collection this year. We are happy to have some of our favourite local brands such as Inside Scoop, Tai Thong and Buttercake Factory to bring you both the classic favourite baked-skin mooncakes and the modern rise in popularity snow skin mooncakes.
