According to Chinese legend, the Jade Rabbit is a character that lives on the moon. The rabbit is always seen preparing the elixir of life for the immortals. The rabbit is a selfless, noble and compassionate creature to whom offerings are often made during Mid-Autumn Festival. It is believed that if you look up at the full moon and squint slightly at the markings, you can still see the Jade Rabbit with his pestle and mortar, making the elixir of life for the immortals.
Drawing inspiration from these stories, Hilton Petaling Jaya has unveiled the Jade Rabbit Series to celebrate this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. The mooncake series infuses delicious and healthy ingredients which such as pomegranate, blueberries, and raisins that contain high antioxidants that provide longevity to health and life.
The Jade Rabbit also symbolizes wealth, good fortune and companionship, correlating with the traditional values that are associated with the festival: love, luck, reunion, and get-togethers.
