Here’s a personal opinion that may raise an eyebrow among the weight-watchers; Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations should be extended to the entire year! Controversial? Yes, but how else can we enjoy the goodness of the mooncakes that are definitely worth every calorie?
“All good things are worth waiting for”

All the Mooncake lovers out there can definitely relate to this. It is commonly celebrated annually on the 15th day of the 8th month in the lunar calendar when the moon is at its fullest phase.
We guess that’s why the Mooncake Festival has turned into a mooncake pageant, with everyone vying for the Most Unique Mooncake crown in the country. But well, the competition is good for the consumers like us. Mooncake Festival gets more and more exciting every year as we discover new flavours from our favourite brands!
