well-wishers and strategic partners of The Star Penang dropped by with gifts of mooncakes to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with the staff, while observing strict standard operating procedures.
Everyone sanitised their hands before walking in and kept their masks on, making it a little harder to recognise each other initially after an absence of many months.
The only time the masks came off was when it was time to relish the delightful mooncakes.
This year’s mooncakes with their many new flavours and vibrant colours reflect the changing times.
There were mooncakes flavoured with dates, sweet potatoes, matcha, yam, ginger and many more.
Mooncake makers seemed to have taken a page from the growing public concern on excessive sugar intake because many of
the mooncake gifts were labelled ‘no added sugar’ or ‘less sugar’.
But never ignored are the classic lotus or red bean paste versions with those sinfully delicious salted egg yolks.
The team at The Star Penang thanks all those who dropped by
the new office at The Star@Pitt St in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling to help share the Mid-Autumn Festival joy.
