Featuring inventive flavors, a limited edition mooncake gift box and tote bag designed in an exclusive collaboration with Pathlight School’s Artists
This Mid-Autumn, Hai Tien Lo (海天楼) presents a divine medley of eleven thoughtfully handcrafted baked and snow skin mooncakes to satisfy all tastes, as well as a splendid Six-course Mid-Autumn Reunion Set Menu for joyous celebrations with the loved ones. The Cantonese restaurant has also collaborated with two gifted alumni artists, Selena Seow and Nurul Amirah Binte Zain, from Pathlight School’s Artist Development Programme (ADP), to create the limited-edition mooncake gift box, mooncake carrier bag and tote bag. A portion of proceeds from the sales will be donated to Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), the not-for-profit charity that runs Pathlight School. The mooncakes are available from 1 July to 14 September 2019.
Hai Tien Lo has whipped up five snow skin mooncake flavors this year including four new innovative flavors. Chocolate lovers will enjoy the decadent Gianduja and Yuzu Snowskin made with Cacao Barry dark chocolate, hazelnut praline, and crunchy hazelnut bits, as well as the aromatic Earl Grey and Cherry Snowskin, made with Earl Grey tea leaves, dried cranberries, Morello cherry purée, and premium dark Araguani and Bahibe milk chocolate. For a refreshing tropical experience, the pina colada- inspired Coconut and Pineapple Snowskin and the tangy Passionfruit and Mango Snowskin with sweet dried mango bits, will certainly please. Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin, a crowd favorite, is also available this year.
Noteworthy baked mooncake flavors this mid-autumn festival include the signature White Lotus Seed Paste with Single Yolk and Double Yolk, offering flavourful classic renditions of the confectionary. Diners watching their diet will appreciate the new Low-sugar Jade Paste with Melon Seeds for a healthier alternative.
Hai Tien Lo’s well-loved signature baked mooncakes, Low-sugar White Lotus Seed Paste with Macadamia Nuts, popular Charcoal Black Sesame Seed Paste with Melon Seeds and Assorted Nuts with Chicken Ham are making a comeback as well.
About the Artists
This year, Hai Tien Lo has exclusively collaborated with Pathlight School’s Artist Development Programme (ADP) to present a stunning tin box with sweet hues of pink, blue and orange, that beautifully encases four mooncakes and evokes the joyful vibrancy of the festival. The two visuals are created by Selena Seow and Nurul Amirah Binte Zain, two talented ADP alumni artists who are on the autism spectrum. Illustrated by Selena, the visual on the box cover, “The Bird and The Blossom”, showcases her flair for whimsical illustrations intricately crafted using ink and colored pencils. It features the White-eared Sibia from the high-altitude forests in Taiwan, symbolizing new opportunities and happiness. The artwork on the side of the box and mooncake box carrier bag, named “Botanical” by Amirah, shows her keen eye for patterns found in nature, expressed through bold lines and vibrant colors. The “Botanical” artwork is also featured on a limited edition tote bag priced at $15 (Hashtag: totesforARC). $1 for every mooncake box and $10 for every limited edition tote bag sold will be donated to Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), which runs Pathlight School. Guests can find out more about the ADP artists at its retail platform, www.theartfaculty.sg.
The elegant mooncake box is not only a reflection of Pan Pacific Singapore’s continuous support for local artists, but a timeless tin box also encapsulates the age-old harvest tradition and serves as a perfect everlasting gift for storage of sentimental items.
