    Mooncake is a staple in Mid-Autumn Festival like Edsa Shangri-La Manila’s white lotus version

    According to the official website of Hong Kong (discoverhongkong.com), the Mid-Autumn Festival was celebrated by the Chinese as early Tang Dynasty from 618 to 907 AD. It symbolizes unity which is believed to be represented by round objects like the moon, thus it is also called the Mooncake Festival.
