Our favourite Mid-Autumn Festival (or more affectionately known as Mooncake Festival) is around the corner again! Every year, people celebrate the festivity by lighting candles and lanterns on the day of the full moon and indulge in decadent mooncakes.
For foodies like us, the best part of every year is seeing restaurants and hotels create the most unique and memorable mooncakes creations and they only seem to be getting better every year. With the ongoing trend of localising classics, we see more brands create mooncakes inspired by iconic local flavours. This 2018, you can expect a massive range of mooncakes—from elevated classic to one-of-a-kind creations, as well as mooncakes infused with Asian flavours.
Even if you’re not planning on feasting on these mooncakes, you can always choose to gift them to your family, friends and/or clients. The packaging is something to be mesmerized by too—of opulent boxes, pretty pastels and elegant designs, here are 6 Mooncakes You Need To Try This Mid-Autumn Festival 2018.

Botanica + Co Restaurant & Bar is quite possibly the most gorgeous restaurant in Kuala Lumpur; you’d have to step in to see for yourselves. Pictures just do not do justice to the splendour of the greenhouse-themed interior.

The food’s really good too, in case you are wondering if it is just another gimmicky place that plays up on the aesthetics and neglects the food standards. Here’s everything we love about Botanica + Co Restaurant & Bar.
There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who eat anything and don’t gain a pound, and the ones who get fat just by breathing. We are the latter.
Similarly, there are two camps when it comes to staying healthy – those who would rather do more physical activity (Team More) and those who prefer to eat less unhealthy food (Team Less). You can take this short quiz to find out which team you belong to.
If, like us, you do not fancy hardcore exercises but still need to watch your weight or you just want to stay healthy but have no time to work out, then welcome to Team Less! We’d like to think of ourselves as the kind who practice moderation and are more conscious of our daily food intake. Our mantra? You are what you eat.
Today, we explore some ways to manage a healthier lifestyle as part of Team Less; in essence, How To Still Eat And Stay Healthy If You Don’t Have Time To Exercise.
