Mooncake Festival 2020- Ultimate Guide for Best Mooncakes in Singapore

中秋快乐大家! 
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to everyone!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called the Moon Festival or the Mooncake Festival. It traditionally falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese lunar calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar.

Consuming mooncake is considered as the symbol of family reunion and represents the round harvest moon. During the Mid-Autumn Festival, Chinese people will do lunar worship and moon watching, as well as enjoy the traditional delicacy of mooncakes. 

If you have not eaten any Mooncakes before, it is a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean or lotus-seed paste.

The festive event is symbolic of family reunions; the Chinese make it a point to return home on this day to have dinner with their families under the full moon. The custom has evolved tremendously in present day and mooncakes are now widely exchanged commodities in Singapore. The practice of gifting mooncakes had become a method of maintaining personal and professional relations.
