What is Mooncake Festival? I know some of us still don't know why the Chinese Community or Filipino-Chinese Friends celebrate this kind of festival. The Mooncake is a delightful Chinese bakery product that traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhongqiujie). The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching, when mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important Chinese festivals.
And this year as Manila Pavilion's Celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon season they will lays out a delectable spread of mooncakes from September 14 to October 18, 2015 at the Patisserie.
