The Chinese community at Panaga Club organised a Mid-Autumn Festival event at Serikandi Shelter recently.

Club members learnt more about Chinese tradition and heritage by taking part in activities such as making lanterns, postcards and other handicrafts. Traditional decorations and snacks associated with the celebration were also available.

In the club’s library, members and children were told stories from Chinese mythology while they also participated in colouring and papercraft making activities.

Chairperson of the Chinese Community at the Panaga Club Ting Ting Chang said the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second most important festival in the Chinese calendar just after the Chinese New Year. The festival is a time for families to reunite and spend time together.

She said the event was not only open to the Chinese community but all club members. “We want everyone to join the fun associated with the celebration and also learn more about Chinese heritage and culture,” she said.
