The Mid-Autumn Festival (simplified Chinese: 中秋节; traditional Chinese: 中秋節; pinyin: zhōngqiūjié;), also known as the Moon Festival, is a popular East Asian celebration of abundance and togetherness, dating back over 3,000 years to China's Zhou Dynasty. In Malaysia and Singapore, it is also sometimes referred to as the Lantern Festival or "Mooncake Festival."
The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month of the Chinese calendar (usually around mid- or late-September in the Gregorian calendar), a date that parallels the Autumn Equinox of the solar calendar. This is the ideal time, when the moon is at its fullest and brightest, to celebrate the abundance of the summer's harvest. The traditional food of this festival is the mooncake, of which there are many different varieties.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the two most important holidays in the Chinese calendar (the other being the Chinese Lunar New Year), and is a legal holiday in several countries. Farmers celebrate the end of the summer harvesting season on this date. Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat moon cakes and pomeloes together. Accompanying the celebration, there are additional cultural or regional customs, such as:

Malaysia is having weekends public holiday on 21st and 22nd September 2009 in conjunction with the Hari Raya Puasa festival (also known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, literally ?Celebration Day of Fasting?). Muslims celebrate the festival of Hari Raya Puasa in Malaysia to mark the culmination of Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting. It is a joyous occasion for Muslims, as it signifies a personal triumph, a victory of self-restraint and abstinence, symbolising purification and renewal. The Muslim community ushers in the first day of Aidilfitri by congregating at mosques for morning prayers followed by visits to the graves of the departed. It is a time of forgiveness within the Muslim community and a time for strengthening of bonds amongst relatives and friends.

Very friendly and helpful staff that make u feel at home. Nice, clean room with a big tv on the wall. A 5-10minute drive to Jonker road where the bars and restaurants are. The taxi service is brilliant wth Chris taking you wherever you want to go, and telling you about the history of various parts of Melaka. We would definately stay again. They even gave me a Muffin with a candle on and a little gift for my birthday. Highly recommended!
