THERE were mooncakes galore at The Star office at Pitt St, Penang, as the staff received several important visitors bearing gifts.

A delegation from China’s consulate-general in Penang, led by vice-consul general Ding Qiao, presented mooncakes and were briefed by senior news editor Alex Teng on the daily operations and the many products available under the Star Media Group umbrella.

Penang DAP secretary Lim Hui Ying, who is also Deputy Education Minister and Tanjong MP, dropped by for a visit, and was received by deputy news editor Arnold Loh.

She was accompanied by a few assemblymen, namely Connie Tan (Seri Delima), Phee Syn Tze (Sungai Puyu), Joshua Woo Sze Seng (Pulau Tikus) and Wong Yuee Harng (Pengkalan Kota).

They were briefed on the heritage architecture of the building that was constructed in 1906.

They were surprised by elements such as the opaque glass tiles on the upper floors, conserved until today.

To mark the Mid-Autumn Festival, Penang DAP brought a mix of classic mooncakes and also flavours that departed from tradition such as matcha.
