    Mooncakes are essential to the Mid-Autumn Festival. Marco Polo Ortigas Manila and it’s cluster of hotels will be selling special moon cakes fo Hou Yi (box of 4), and Chang ‘E (box of 6) gift boxes, available at Php 2,288 and Php 3,388, respectively.

    The story about mooncakes comes from the legend of the archer Hou Yi, who was believed to be a hero for shooting nine out of ten suns that caused extreme heat.  As his token for this act, the queen of heaven gave him an elixir of life, which made him a God.

    Later on, he gave it to his wife, Chang ‘E until a local learned about this and tried to steal it. Which made her fly up to the sky and into the moon, the closest to Earth after she drank it. Hou Yi learned about this and has been shouting his wife’s name when he saw a figure in the moon.
