Something about mid-autumn & mooncakes

AS festive celebrations are pretty much one after the other in this country comprising a melting pot of cultures, Sunway Velocity Mall brings visitors all that's Mid-Autumn, in conjunction with the mall's second Mid-Autumn Festival.

From Sept 4 to 24, the mall's main atrium on the ground floor reflects “An Autumn Reunion”, a campaign that boasts a variety of themed booths against a backdrop adorned with vibrant and intricate decorations reminiscent of festive lanterns and the mooncake/mid-autumn festival.

As no mid-autumn would be complete without mooncakes, Sunway Velocity Mall liaises with renowned brands and vendors to bring patrons specialty mooncakes of sorts from the likes of Hilton, Oversea, Tai Thong, Casahana and Grand Imperial.

Other unique mid-autumn offerings include Taiwan's OTOP (One Town, One Product) offering Taiwan's teas and Taiwanese snacks, coffee and snacks from Doutor Coffee, along with a variety of traditional and modern lanterns by Pro A Lantern and more.

Planned activities in conjunction with the festival include a Didi & Friends Meet & Greet Tea Party along with singing and dancing sessions scheduled for Sep 10, 11 and 17. The party on Sep 10 and 17 starts at 3pm and is open to children aged 4 to 9. Register to book a spot.

Mooncake eating, tea tasting and pomelo peeling contests entertain as well as add a “tasty twist” to the festive season, while the highly-anticipated Little Miss Cheongsam competition at 2pm on Sep 8 will see 4 to 9 year-olds walking the runway for the title.

As is synonymous with Sunway Velocity Mall, a myriad of energetic festive-themed performances have been lined up including wing chun demonstrations and the special 24 flower drums performances. Additionally, mooncake workshops by 123 Bake are open for registration. Participation makes for an ideal chance for parents to bond with their kids through this hands-on activity. Moreover, three lucky winners will get to enjoy free trial baking classes.
