Let's Fly To the (Mira) Moon!

Sunday, September 18, 2016 Simone Foster 0 Comments

Hi everyone,

Hong Kong just celebrated the Mid Autumn Festival on 15 September 2016 with many outdoor celebrations of lantern appreciation and walks, and of course many hotels and restaurants offering great deals for family dinners which is part of the celebrations. Children walking with lanterns out in the villages and many families laughing and chatting whilst enjoying different flavours and variations of mooncakes - such a beautiful sight all over Hong Kong.

For my family, we had a mini celebration at home and the day after - brunch at the Mira Moon hotel - of which it's decor and design of the hotel was built around the myth and legend of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Therefore rabbits, peonies, chinese motifs and the moon is an abundant sight within the hotel's premises.





Since cami tops seem to be quite a trend these days, I opted to wear a similar top in bright yellow sans the recent t-shirt under trend, shining bright and strong like the golden moon. Paired this look with these comfy lace wedges from Vince Camuto.


Straw clutch to ground the look and matched it with my tassel Chanel earrings in light gold.


With a nice cold champagne in hand, I headed out to a small outdoor area which apparently I came to understand is the only hotel / bar in Wan Chai that holds this license for rooftop outdoor smoking. Its a cool little corner indeed.




After finishing off my surf n turf lunch and enjoying a nice dessert of tiramisu and chocolate " boom boom" which is chocolate covered custard, we headed off to the guestroom corridors for a quick tour.


I am most certainly loving these pretty wooden carvings along each corridor and don't you think those little bunny rabbits are just so divine? Heard from the General Manager that they had lovely little stuffed rabbits hiding all over the hotel especially in their dining outlet " Secret Garden" for this lovely festival but sad to say, many guests just could not help but literally " stole" them home! Good for PR I would say, bad for the hotel though cos it was all gone over and out in a spate of a night!




Hope you enjoyed this post and do share with me if you celebrated the Lantern / Mid-Autumn Festival and what did you do?

Love,
Simone xoxo
