We have been invited to this prestigious event, the launching of 38 kg Giant Mooncake at Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu. That’s definitely the biggest Mooncake that we both have ever seen so far. We learnt so many new things during this launch. We are not Chinese so such invitation gave us the opportunity to understand the meaning and importance of Mooncake. In addition, we had the opportunity to eat high quality mooncake and best of all, the product is Halal.
The Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu’s team of Master Chefs led by award-winning Executive Chef, H.K Cheong made history once again by preparing a 38 kg Giant Mooncake, which was officially launch by the hotel’s General Manager, Mr. Adrian Ng at the hotel’s Lobby Lounge.

The launch marks the commencement of the selling of Promenade’s very own Signature Mini Crystal Durian Mooncakes at RM3.00 per piece.
“This and the whole range of Promenade’s mooncakes are halal and with minimum preservatives. Therefore, it’s best refrigerated. Besides selling our mooncakes here in Kota Kinabalu, we will also be making them available at Promenade Hotel Tawau and Promenade Hotel Bintulu.”-said Executive Chef H.K Cheong.
The launch was witnessed by Senior Citizens from the Senior Day Care Centre of Kota Kinabalu’s Widows Welfare Association (SDCC-KKWWA) and friends from the media fraternity who later ‘followed the Jade or Moon Rabbit-the companion of the Moon Goddess to Dynasty Restaurant‘ for a sumptuous lunch and mooncake tasting.
“We’ve specially invited aunties from SDCC-KKWWA whom we believe will appreciate Chinese Festive Gathering such as our Mooncake tasting today. We’ve also prepared little fish shaped mooncakes as door gifts for the occasion because legend has it that it brings abundance of fortune to those who receive it.”-said Ms. Anita Chung, Group Director of Sales & Marketing.
