For many Singaporeans, the Mid-Autumn Festival brings to mind pretty lantern displays and mooncakes. Although the festive displays were toned down in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were still more than 700 lanterns that adorned the main streets of Chinatown, and a virtual festival tour was also launched so that people could experience it from the comfort of their homes.
The Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese and East Asian lunisolar calendar, is also celebrated as Tết in Vietnam and Chuseok in Korea.
On 29 September 2020, some members of the Mileage team gathered in the office and celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival by sharing mooncakes – a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean or lotus-seed paste.
