Hong Kong’s beloved mooncake makes it to Manila

A reason to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival 

September is the month many gear up for the holidays. And for the Filipino-Chinese community, this month is the time to prepare for the annual Mid-Autumn Festival, which will take place on Oct. 1 this year. Based on Chinese tradition, the festival is held in celebration of the autumn equinox and the moon, when it is believed to be at its roundest. Its shape is a symbol for unity, harmony, and love. While we have yet to see how the festival will happen this year due to the pandemic, families can still celebrate it at home with the festival’s sweetest star—the mooncakes. 

For its second year, Hong Kong MX Mooncakes is back in Manila, thanks to its official Philippine distributor Double Down Import and Export, Inc. The brand brings its well-loved mooncake flavors and some new ones to spice up your holiday feast.
