Functional, trendy and tasty all at once, additional surprises include a paper lantern, a charming booklet and a matching reusable tote bag. As for the mooncakes, a total of six flavours are available for this year’s festivities, each lovingly handcrafted by the culinary team at the hotel’s contemporary Cantonese restaurant YEN.

Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Who knew lugging around mooncakes could look this stylish? For its latest fashionable collaboration, Hilton Kuala Lumpur  has teamed up with the entrepreneur behind the eponymously-named shoe brand Christy Ng to present a sleek calorie-bomb carrier worthy of any stylista. Available in Crimson Red and Royal Purple, both designs are crafted in faux leather featuring lively hibiscus prints, while gilded zippers and trimmings adds a luxurious touch to the entire package.

Fans of the vibrant Malaysian flower will also want a bite of the Chynna Rose, a new signature snowskin mooncake inspired by the flower’s colloquial name. Individually handcrafted, each of these tasty treats comes packed with smooth lotus paste infused with ginseng, tart hibiscus jam, and crispy almond nibs, all encased within a subtle lavender-hued snow skin.

Available from now until 13 September 2019,  the mooncake gift boxes can be purchased at the pop-up store in Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s lobby. Online orders are also available at www.takehome.hiltonkl.com. For more information, call +603 2264 2006 or email KULHI_Chynna@hilton.com
