Time to light the lanterns and feast on mooncakes – the Mid-Autumn Festival is almost here!
Mark your diary for 4th October! The whole family gets involved in the celebration giving them time to bond as they gather the harvest, pray and offer thanksgivings. Business partners and friends also show their gratitude by sharing mooncake gifts. The Lantern festival is not complete without savouring the tasty mooncakes which come in various shapes, colours and flavours!
Another personal favourite mooncake would be from the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur!
