Public holidays between September 12th until September 14th due to Mid-Autumn Festival



The romantic Mid-Autumn Festival comes on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. This is a day to worship the moon god. Chinese believe in praying to the moon god for protection, family unity, and good fortune. The round "moon cakes" eaten on this festival are symbolic of family unity and closeness. Pomelos are also eaten on this day (represent the hope that the moon god give them protection.) Moon gazing is another essential part of this festival. On this day, the moon is at its roundest and brightest.


The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on Thursday, September 11th this year. The public holiday has been set to Friday, September 12th. Our company will therefore remain closed between Friday, September 12th until Sunday, September 14th. Business will return back to normal on Monday, September 15th. Any inconvenience caused is much regretted.

By the way, there are a few shops selling Mooncakes online. If you are interested, you might want to give them a try. Be careful though, stuff like "Red Bean Paste Mooncake", "White Lotus Seed Mooncake" and others might certainly not be everyone's favorite taste. ;-)
