Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival (simplified Chinese: 中秋节; traditional Chinese: 中秋節), also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival or Zhongqiu Festival, is a popular lunar harvest festival celebrated by Chinese and Vietnamese people.[1] A description of the festival first appeared in Rites of Zhou, a written collection of rituals of the Western Zhou Dynasty from 3,000 years ago.[1] The celebration became popular during the early Tang Dynasty.[1] The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar, close to the autumnal equinox.[1] The Government of the People's Republic of China listed the festival as an "intangible cultural heritage" in 2006, and it was made a Chinese public holiday in 2008.[1] It is also a public holiday in Taiwan.

Now that you have an idea what Mid-Autumn Festival is, have you had your first bite of mooncake so far? In conjunction with the soon to celebrate festival, plenty of shop had started produce and selling their very own brand of mooncake and this include Starbucks and Resorts World Genting.
Now, for those like me who have plenty of World Card point but don't know what to do, now's your chance. You might want to redeem these luxury mooncake and present it luxury to people you cared about, after all there will be on going promotion through out the festival.
Not only that the gift would show your luxury taste, but also portrait your sincerity in bringing such meaningful event to people who brought you up, or people you cared most. While the mooncakes are hand made, the price is pretty cheap I must say
For more info, do pay Genting website a visit or alternatively you could also venture more in Genting itself.
