Did you know that the Moon Cake Festival is closely related to an event commemorating the history of the people's struggle for freedom China's rise under Mongol rule of an oppressive and cruel?

Because of this, the Chinese people to push the Sun agreed to rebel.Rebellion under the leadership of Zhang Yuan Xhu besama followers, Liu Bo Wen have used moon cakes as a tool to spread information.

Mooncakes sold widely in the market at that time was inserted sepucuk note calls people to rise up to overthrow the government on the night of the 15th, the eighth month in lunar calendar.

pink01  A little info about mooncakes.To the Muslim out there,please bit careful with the mooncakes.Because,originally mooncakes is NON-HALAL because using non-halal oil,but eventually now it made in a halal for Muslims alike to enjoy it.

If you want to eat or want to buy mooncakes,please looking for that is halal JAKIM marked. Because of my experience, don't be easily believe in the moon cakes produced by the store bakery even though it was placed HALAL JAKIM mark on it. It is feared that it just tricks that can be sold easily by the muslim purchaser.
