We celebrated the Mid-Autumn festival at NHNH on Sat 17 Sep!
There was a mountain of traditional food, including a variety of mooncakes to taste, a huge share of laksa noodle soup and various other Asian dishes that were brought in by our lovely neighbours! Kids and adults got crafty with lantern origami making and a video storytelling of the Mid-Autumn festival was presented on screen. The afternoon ended with music and dance! We hope you all had fun!
A big thank you to community chef Jenny Chua for putting on a wonderful mooncake cooking demonstration and all our amazing volunteers who helped to carry out the celebration.
What is the Mid-autumn Festival?
The Mid-autumn Festival (Zhongqiu Jie in Chinese Mandarin), also known as the Moon Festival, falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. It is often celebrated by gathering for big family dinners, worshipping the moon, lighting lanterns as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune and eating traditional mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet bean, egg yolk, meat or lotus-seed paste.
