Aihana is a combination of ‘Ai’ which means Love in Mandarin and ‘Hana’ which means flower in Japanese. We believe love blossoms in the presence of Aihana.
How It Started
A fascination for Chinese pastry led Nasyrah Mansor, Aihana’s founder, to explore the art of mooncake making. The passion became a profession in 2015 when the focus shifted from making savouring mooncakes with family and friends to sharing the tastiness of every bite with more people.
The overwhelming positive feedback convinced Nasyrah that indeed she was on the right path to spreading happiness in her own way. In 2016, the business got a formal brand name, AIHANA. Aihana specializes in making halal version of themooncake which is a traditional Chinese pastry. It celebrates both Chinese authentic flavours as well as creates innovative new fl avours.
In Chinese tradition, mooncake is also known as “The Cake of Reunion”. Roundness symbolizes completeness and togetherness. A full moon symbolizes prosperity and reunion for the whole family.
At Mid-Autumn Festival, people eat mooncakes together with family, or present mooncakes
to relatives or friends, to express love and best wishes.
There are many types of mooncakes. The popular ones are Traditional Mooncakes, Snow Skin Mooncakes and Shanghai Mooncakes. Traditionally, mooncakes are filled with lotus paste or red bean paste. Some mooncakes contain salted egg yolk, giving them a sweet and savory flavour.Over the years, mooncakes have started to become popular to the non-Chinese. Now, with halal mooncakes available in the market, mooncakes can be enjoyed by more people.
