3 October, Kuala Lumpur – It was a colourful affair as S P Setia celebrated the Mid-Autumn festival over a few weekends with the ‘Magical Reunion’ themed events together with Citizen Setia who make up the community of people owning Setia homes. Held at the various Setia townships all over the country, throngs of people attended the events and took part in various activities held throughout the celebration.
At Setia Alam, the flagship township of S P Setia, more than 1,000 members of Citizen Setia came together to join in the lantern parade. Young children were taught the art of making traditional lanterns as well as paintings of colourful paper umbrellas. Many adults were seen reminiscing their childhood pastime activities at the Nostalgic Games booth featuring games of yesteryears such as marbles, spinning tops, bottle caps and ‘five stones’ or popularly known as batu seremban.
It was an equally joyous get-together at Setia EcoHill in Semenyih as members of Citizen Setia were entertained by traditional drummers from Exodrums, Chinese orchestra as well as jazz bands throughout the event. Guests were thrilled to be able to sample authentic Malaysian delights at the Food Street which featured forty stalls with local offerings such as char kuey teow, apam balik, Nyonya cakes, nasi lemak, cendol and much more. Many took part in games and enjoyed the customised Setia mooncakes which were given away in conjunction with the festival.
Setia Eco Templer in Rawang offered a mesmerising sight with the lighted giant rabbits, giant moon and lanterns display greeting members of Citizen Setia who turned up for the events. In Chinese folklore, the mythical Jade rabbit was said to have sacrificed itself as an offering to the Heavenly Emperor. In return, the Emperor immortalised the rabbit by placing its image on the moon as a tribute to its selfless act. Thus, the rabbit is a significant icon during Mid-Autumn celebrations.
The celebrations were also a momentous one in other Setia communities including Setia Eco Glades in Cyberjaya, KL Eco City, Setia Eco Cascadia in Johor, TRIO by Setia in Bukit Tinggi and Setia SPICE in Penang. Many members of Citizen Setia took the opportunity to get to know one another while indulging in the activities lined-up at the various locations. The ‘Make-Your-Own-Mooncake’ sessions held at each venue were an instant hit with many making a beeline to learn the art of producing delicious mooncakes.
The month-long Mid Autumn ‘Magical Reunion’ celebration continues with Setia Eco Park as well as Aeropod in Kota Kinabalu joining in the bandwagon in hosting special events for Citizen Setia on 7th October 2017. Enjoy activities such as cultural performances, mask-changing performances by children, lantern parade, themed photobooths as well as a spectacular fireworks show amongst other delightful events. Come and experience the Mid Autumn festival the Setia way!
