National holiday for Chung Yeung Festival is on 23rd October - All staff will be back on 24th October Wednesday!


Dear Customers,

Chinese usually visit their ancestor's graves two times a year. The first time is during Ching Ming, in Spring, and the second time is during Chung Yeung, in the Autumn. To honor the tradition, the day is set as a holiday in Chinese speaking countries, and this year, the day falls on 23rd October, Tuesday.

During the Han Dynasty, a soothsayer in a village predicted that a disaster might happen and advised everyone to flee to the mountains to hide. Luckily the people listened to him, when they returned to their homes, they realized that all their livestocks died. From that day onwards, families from around the country hike up to the mountains to pay respects to their ancestors and get blessed in return.

Staff at Play-Asia.com will be back on Wednesday 24th October to resume packing, shipping and answering questions sent to customer service.
