(7 August 2020): A time of harmony and reunion with family and loved ones, Mid-autumn Festival is celebrated when the moon is at its roundest and brightest. It is a joyous occasion to gather as a family to give thanks, exchange and enjoy mooncakes to symbolise unity, happiness and completeness.
Crafting experiences that celebrate this time-honoured Chinese culture, Hilton hotels in Malaysia launched its mooncake series, Lunar Charms, which fuse traditional aesthetics with a touch of modern interpretations to pay homage to the precious charm of lunar worship. The hotels offer an enticing array of classic-baked mooncake varieties that exemplify culinary craftsmanship, fine quality and exquisite flavours.
Presented in a birdcage-inspired 4-tiered box, the national mooncake box design features warm tones with bird and floral motifs to convey peace and auspiciousness. The opening panel is inspired by the art of Chinese architecture which exudes the grace of moon-gazing experience in the olden time. Available in three colours: pink, red and blue, the design makes the most desirable gift for the most discerning family and friends.
The traditional baked mooncakes come in a medley of flavours, including the much-loved White Lotus, Black Sesame Lotus, Pandan Lotus and Red Bean. For those seeking something distinctive, a premium selection featuring special flavours such as Dragon Fruit Lotus Paste and Durian Lotus is also available.
