Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur Offers Mooncake Special

Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur offers classic and new mooncakes handmade by Chinese Executive Chef Tan Kim Weng for the Mooncake or Mid-Autumn Festival on 8 September 2014.

On the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese Lunar calendar, the moon is at its roundest and family members traditionally gather to celebrate the festival and eat mooncakes. Children would light colourful lanterns and join the fun of the celebration.

Mooncakes are about unity among family members and strengthening ties with friends, both personal and corporate. Thus, they make meaningful gifts.

At Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Chinese Executive Chef Tan Kim Weng creates classic mooncake varieties according to traditional recipes. These include Lotus Seed Paste, White Lotus Seed Paste and Red Bean Paste, with or without egg yolks, and Assorted Nuts and Sun-Dried Fruits.

This year’s new mooncake varieties include Pandan Lotus Seed Paste with Single Yolk, Mini Black Sesame with Yolk and Mini Ping Pei with Avocado Custard Cream.

All-time favourites Mini Ping Pei Durian and Mini Ping Pei with Custard and Bird’s Nest will also be available. For those who love chocolate, there is Mini Ping Pei Snow White Chocolate with Honeycomb.

A special Mooncake Counter has been set up in the hotel lobby, with different varieties of mooncakes displayed together with the beautiful premium gift boxes. The mooncakes may be ordered at this counter from 1 July to 8 September 2014.

From 1 July to 24 July 2014, there is an Early Bird Offer of 15 per cent discount on all mooncakes. Two rebate vouchers of MYR 20 each, to be used at Shang Palace and Lemon Garden Cafe, will also be given for every mooncake gift box purchased. A company logo may be placed on the gift boxes for purchases of 50 boxes and above on single receipt. The ultimate gift for this year’s festival is to have your company logo engraved on the mooncake for purchases of 300 boxes and above on a single receipt.

The Mooncake Festival is associated with a few legends, the most famous of which is about the role mooncakes played in the Chinese’s overthrow of the Mongols in 1368 AD. The mooncakes hid a message to rise up against the oppressors and were passed along, resulting in a successful rebellion.
