During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a 32-year-old woman from Ho Chi Minh City has made the most of her time by creating eye-catching animal-shaped mooncakes.
Over 850 orphaned children received mooncakes from the Youth Federation
Bao Phuong drew in throngs of customers
What makes Nguyen Thi Thuy Duong's mooncakes special are the hand-drawn patterns inspired by Vietnamese folk paintings and works by renowned local painters.
The type of mooncake often sells for VND2,000 (US$0.08) to VND7,000 ($0.3) apiece
The encroachment has been approved by the local administration
The series of events, which began September 3rd, includes making traditional Vietnamese mooncakes and lanterns, and donating to and organizing the Mid-Autumn festival for orphan children.
