9th UTeM Mooncake Festival is an annual event organized by students of Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) for celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional Chinese Festival which is actually celebrated on month 8 day 15 in China’s lunar calendar. To many Chinese, it is still the second most important festival after Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival means family reunion and peace. The festival is celebrated when the moon is believed to be the biggest and fullest. To the Chinese, a full moon is a symbol of prosperity, happiness, and family reunion. The main traditions and celebrations include eating mooncakes, having dinner with family, gazing at and worshipping the moon, and lighting lanterns. The festival typically involves much giving, receiving, and eating of mooncakes. Chinese mooncakes are the traditional dessert/snack of Mid-Autumn Festival. They are round in shape, like the full harvest moon of Mid-Autumn’s evening. Up to 10 cm (4 inches) wide and 5 cm (2 inches) deep, most mooncakes consist of a pastry skin enveloping a sweet, dense filling. Mooncakes are usually eaten in small wedges, and shared by family members, generally with Chinese tea.
