THE gifting of mooncakes to family and friends remains a treasured tradition of the Mid-Autumn Festival which will be celebrated tomorrow.

As a token of appreciation amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Penang youth and sports committee chairman Soon Lip Chee and representatives of Penang Youth Development Corporation (PYDC) delivered traditional mooncakes to Star Media Group at The Star Pitt St. office in George Town.

“This is to show our appreciation to the media for their contributions during this pandemic.

“The festival can still be celebrated and bring cheer to all.

“We have also given out boxes of mooncakes to those under quarantine in my constituency as well,” said Soon, who is Bagan Jermal assemblyman.

On hand to receive the mooncakes were Star Media Group assistant news editor Arnold Loh and editorial administrator Koh Lean Hua.

Also present were PYDC general manager Dr Gwee Sai Ling and her deputy Ng Hooi Ting.
