The Mid-Autumn Festival has always been one of joyous reunions as family members and loved ones come together to mark the end of the autumn harvest while paying tribute to the legendary moon goddess of immortality, Chang’Er. To celebrate this celestial tradition, Mandarin Oriental has revealed its latest range of tasty mooncakes that will make just about any long-awaited reunion even more momentous.
Handcrafted to tempt even the most discerning of palates, this year’s fantastic mooncake selections offers plenty of variety ranging from traditional favourites to unconventional surprises. For sweet-tooths with a penchant for fruity flavours, Mandarin Oriental offers a variety of snow skin sensations that contains heavenly pairings such as yam with apricot, lychee with lotus paste and aromatic Musang King durian. Chocoholics can also opt for the newly introduced chocolate mooncakes which come in an assortment of sinfully-sweet combinations.
But of course, no Mid-Autumn reunion could possibly be complete without sampling the classics. Traditional fillings on offer this year include sweet lotus or pandan paste with a savoury egg yolk centre, red bean or durian mixedwith melon seeds as well as diced chicken ham with crunchy mixed nuts.
Available until September 24, these tasty traditional delights come presented in unique fan-shaped boxes adorned with charming illustrations depicting a slice of everyday life back in ancient China that evokes a sense of nostalgia for a time long forgotten. Each of these beautiful boxes contains up to four delicious mooncakes as well as a quaint greeting card for that extra personal touch. Mandarin Oriental also offers packaging services that enables companies to personalise their packages with the company logo of their choice.
Members of Mandarin Oriental’s Elite Club are entitled to up to 12 per cent savings for any purchase of mooncakes throughout the promotion period. Delivery services are available at an additional of MYR95 per delivery within Kuala Lumpur although complimentary single deliveries for orders above 10 boxes are also available for areas located within the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
