Very soon the Mid-Autumn Festival is coming!!!
Do you know that the Mid-Autumn Festival also called "Mooncake festival" is a 1,000 year-old-tradition?
It is also Chinese version of "Thanksgiving"!!!
It is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar and the moon on that also appears at its fullest and brightest. It is a day where Chinese families around the world gathered over fragrant tea and festive goodies such as mooncakes and pomelos to celebrate harmony, family unity and togetherness.
According to the lunar calendar, Mid-Autumn Festival is on 8 September this year (2014).
Celebrate the traditions of Mid-Autumn Festival and revel in the homemade marvels at Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant as award-winning Chef Chung Yiu Ming and his culinary team unveils three new enthralling creations. Nestled in tastefully designed boxes, Li Bai’s fine selection of mooncakes will be available from 6 August to 8 September 2014.
New this year, the Traditional Baked Yellow Lotus Seed Paste with Cranberry and Hazelnut Mooncake promises a medley of toothsome taste and textures. The fragrant yellow Lotus Seed Paste is imbued with the fruit’s subtle sweetness and complemented with the delightful crunch of Hazelnuts.
As a symbol of luck, success and wealth, elegant blooms serve as the packaging inspiration this year. The Classic box is donned in an auspicious red fabric laced with intricate Adenium embroidery, whereas the new Premium box features an elaborate brocade of luxurious gold and magenta Peonies. Encased within this opulent box are four matching individual boxes which house Li Bai’s exquisite mooncakes. Perfected with an elegant gold embellishment of Li Bai’s logo atop, the elegantly designed box makes a perfect mid-autumn gift to impress your clients and loved ones.
