Mid Autumn Festival  & National Day Double Holiday Notice

Tankii office will be closed from 29th Sept. to 6th Oct. 2023 due to Mid Autumn Festival and National Holiday.


The Origin of Mid-Autumn Festival:

"Zhong Qiu Jie", which is also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar.

It is a time for family members and loved ones to congregate and enjoy the full moon - an auspicious symbol of abundance, harmony and luck. Adults will usually indulge in fragrant mooncakes of many varieties with a good cup of piping hot Chinese tea, while the little ones run around with their brightly-lit lanterns.


We would like to share an ancient poem with everyone: 


Tune: Prelude to Water Melody

--Su Shi (Song dynasty)


How long will the full moon appear?

Wine cup in hand, I ask the sky.

I do not know what time of the year.

It would be tonight in the palace on high.


Riding the wind, there I would fly,

Yet I'm afraid

the crystalline palace would be

Too high and cold for me.


I rise and dance, with my shadow I play.

The moon goes round the mansions red

Through gauze-draped

window soft to shed.

Her light upon the sleepless bed.


Why then when people part,

is the moon full and bright?

Men have sorrow and joy;

they part or meet again;

The moon is bright or dim

and she may wax or wane.

There has been nothing perfect

since the olden days.

So let us wish that man

Will live long as he can!

Though miles apart,

we'll share the beauty she displays.
