Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! - Play-Asia.com will be off for the national holiday tomorrow 23rd September - customer services and shipping will resume on 24th September!


Play-Asia.com wishes all of you a happy Mid-Autumn or Moon Festival. This festival is celebrated in China and various other East Asian countries every year on 15th August on the Lunar calendar (around late September or early October in the Gregorian calendar). This year, the festival is on 22nd September.

In the ancient times when everyone were farmers, the day is celebrated as a harvest festival. The moon is particularly bright around this time every year, so everyone put down their work to admire the moon. Since everyone is going to spend their time well into the night staring at the moon, drinking alcohol and having moon cakes, the day after the festival is set as a national holiday.

We shipped out today whatever we could. Tomorrow we will be sleeping off the "moon cake coma" (an average moon cake has approx. 500-800 calories). We will be back on Friday with a lot of restocks and a few new releases.

No matter where you are, we hope you could see a full, bright moon and we wish you a very happy Mid-Autumn Festival.
