The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 19th of September this year. 
Thinking of how to celebrate with your friends or family?

Here are some options for you!!! =)

Chinatown

7 Sep-4 Oct 2013
Well, I guess many Singaporean would have guess this place to go for Mid-Autumn. Afterall this had been the home base for all Mid-Autumn festivities. So come on down to Chinatown to soak in the atmosphere of the Mid-Autumn Festival by visiting street bazaars and nightly cultural shows. I'm sure this place will leave you dazzled and entertained until well after the full moon has set. Join in the first ever Chinatown Mid-Autumn Walking Trail (8 & 14 Sep, 7-8.30pm; each trail is conducted in English and limited to 15 participants, so book early by emailing hr_zhang1984@yahoo.com.sg) or participate in the annual Mass Lantern Walk (15 Sep, 7-10pm).

This year is going to be something interesting, some prehistoric visitors will be making an appearance – life-size animatronic dinosaurs will be roaming and fighting within the gardens Chinese Garden.

And how can we miss out eating 
MOONCAKES!!!
Recently I got to try Xin Cuisine Mooncakes with my friends!

One of the highly recommended will be Xin Cuisine's signature Mini Special Egg Custard with Egg Yolk Mooncake. The rich, smooth and endless elegance of the enchanting creamy custard ensconced in a lightly baked outer crust has earned it the best seller status, accolades and enthusiastic appreciation alike. 

Xin Cuisine is also bringing back other perennial favourites together; For a more traditional take, there would be the flaky crust and flavourful textures of the Teochew Yam Paste Mooncake. I love their Yam Paste Mooncake too! =)


For snowskin aficionados, you can take their pick from a range of heady flavours including the Soursop and Chocolate Crunch and Green Tea Lotus Paste with Chivas Chocolate.

 You can tell we just can't have enough of their mooncakes!!!

 Check out their delightful mooncakes!!!
