Celebrated with traditional food and mooncakes, the festival has its roots in 14th-century China, when a rebellion was successfully staged against the Mongol ruler.
In conjunction with this event, confectionery store Yee Hup Enterprise Sdn Bhd is getting a head start on the run-up to the Mooncake Festival with the introduction of 10 halal mooncake varieties.
These include a pandan lotus with a single yolk, assorted nuts, a pure lotus, a pandan lotus, red beans, a pandan lotus with salted Mung beans and the single yolk.
Available varieties also include lotus with single and double yolks, supreme mixed nuts and the famous white-coffee mooncake.
Prices for mooncakes range from RM10 to RM19 a piece.
The regular-sized mooncakes come in four pieces in specially-designed gift boxes.
There is also a selection comprising Shang Hai mooncakes, kong chai peng (mooncakes without fillings), Chopping cakes with red beans (mini mooncakes) and coconut slice pandan biscuits.
This promotion is on until Sept 30 in the Yee Hup Enterprise outlet at No. 7, 9, 11, Jalan Sri Ampang, Taman Ipoh Jaya in Gunung Rapat.
From tomorrow until Sunday, Yee Hup will also host a free halal food-tasting programme for the products they manufacture, like the original hiong piah, kaya puffs, chicken floss puffs and Dou Yong pastries.
All are invited. For details, call 05-312 7128.
