Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, or Mooncake Festival, is one of the most important dates in the Chinese calendar, and is a time when families get together and eat delicious food.

农历八月十五中秋节,是中国重要的传统节日,是一家人团聚,吃月饼赏月的日子。

This year on Friday 13th September, residents at the Somerset Yangtze River were invited to get involved in the festival spirit and learn how to make Sweetened bean paste Dafu Mooncake.

共祝佳节,欢聚中秋!上周五,为答谢长住客,盛捷长江服务公寓邀请到住客们及其家人,一起手工制作玉兔形状的大福月饼,共享团圆喜乐!

Guests from Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Canada and Hongkong were guided by professional bakers over the course of a few hours to create individual sweetened bean paste Dafu Mooncake, shaped like bunnies, where the guests could decorate the faces and give their bunnies individual personalities!

现场有来自日本,新加坡,泰国,加拿大和香港的朋友。在专业导师的带领下,玉兔大福月饼轻轻松松的就做出来了,形如小兔子,先不说口味,光看大福的颜值,就让人对它爱不释手。

"We love to put on fun events such as this one and it was great to see so many people of all ages and from all over the world sharing in and embracing this important Chinese holiday," said Jo ZHOU, the Residence Manager.

盛捷长江服务公寓的驻店经理周琼女士说道:“这是一次很棒的活动,很高兴与长住我们服务公寓的朋友们分享和享受这个团圆美满的假期。”

"The children especially enjoyed creating the faces of the Dafu and we hope they will feel a connection to this festival in the future."

“孩子们特别享受这个过程,我们也希望他们能在收获与分享中感受中秋文化。”
