Moon Cake Feast!!!



Today, I can finally go home and have a little break. Well, everything was quite okay at first. But, today, was just pure bad luck! Anyway, I took my bus back to my hometown, with a ticket that was RM4.00 more expensive. Then, when I reached home less than 30 minutes, I was told that I need to return to my uni to settle some forms. Haizzzz, it was just pure bad luck!!!! Let's put that aside and enjoy some very nice moon cakes.



Well, if you had read the newspaper, you might come across an article regarding luxurious moon cake. Yup, there are some moon cakes that really "cost a leg". In Singapore, there is a moon cake box set that costs around RM2962.00. What is so special about this? Well, according to the Sin Chew Daily, the head chef explained that "the fillings of the moon cake require a lot of effort.Omega 3 egg white, with milk, egg yolk powder and etc are used to replace the lianrong{莲蓉}. When the customers open the box, immediately, the aroma could be smelled" {Haha, please forgive my lousy translation} . Apart from that, the moon cake boxes require 1 and a half month to manufacture. If you are one of the clients, the head chief would even deliver the moon cake to you and instruct you how to enjoy this luxurious box personally.


Personally, I am not rich enough to afford this ultra-luxurious moon cakes box{If you have time, click my ads to give me some money to eat RM1.50 worth of cheap moon cake beside the street}. Besides, eating this super moon cake might even make my nose bleed!Hahaha, well, thanks goodness that this year, my family did not really need to buy any moon cakes. This is because friends and families of my parents and siblings had given some very nice moon cake box sets. Even though they were not that horribly luxurious which worthed a price of a beautiful laptop, they were quite tasty. Plus, the design of the moon cake boxes were also quite beautiful! Yes, needless to say, it is picture-time!





Moon Cake Box No.1 : TAI TONG Moon Cake box set{4 moon cakes}

Personally, I really like the box design. The floral design with white background really attract my attention. Besides, the moon cake was quite tasty too, not too sweet. When you taste it, try a cup of green tea, it would be like in food-heaven!




Moon Cake Box No.2 : MAI KE SI Moon Cake Box Set{2 moon cakes}

For this box, the box design is in Asian style. The raspberry with cheese filling moon cake was really superb. As the other flavour, it was quite sweet.

ooo, the box design was quite nice. However, the moon cake was quite sweet also. Therefore, don't eat too much or else you will gain few more pounds just like me.{Now, I have to keep fit already(> <)}



Moon cake festival is one of my favourite celebrations! Even though I know it is a little bit late, I am still wishing you all HAPPY MOONCAKE FESTIVAL!!!!

LOL~ how much does "a leg" worth?

I love yam mooncakes, then again, I could rarely finish an entire one (esp. the trad. ones)

Woah it has been ages since I last ate mooncake! I spend my mid autumn festivals away from home for the past seven years... it's a little sad! Haha! And I don't get to eat mooncakes over here too because I didn't want to splurge on a box of it and end up giving others free mooncakes because I can't finish them :P

Happy belated mid autumn festival!

p/s: And thanks for leaving a message on my tagboard!

Hi, you know, nowadays I prefer mooncakes with white skin/'ping pei' types because these aren't as sweet as the brown varieties, especially Tai Thong's! Anyway, have you tried Foh San's mooncake? Next year, try their coffee variety... guaranteed sweet but tasty to the core! Lastly, I just want to say I missed trying out Haagen Daz ice cream mooncake...boohoo!
