Sweet goodness

It is a blessing to have a wonderful school holiday with beautiful, haze-free weather on some days. Haze or no haze, I am sure the kids have a good rest and fun for over a week! Tomorrow would be back to school for them, but before that, let us enjoy today, a beautiful Sunday.

Not only it is a Sunday today but it is that time of the year again!! Time to indulge in those sweet mooncakes and burn some paper lanterns during the Mid-Autumn festival, which falls today.

Traditionally, I would go for those lotus seed mooncakes without yolk. So without fail, this year I ordered no yolks mooncakes to indulge in.

Peppermint (L) and white lotus

Thankfully the home baker that I ordered with was doing hers finely; her mooncakes are less sweet. She has petite package that comes with 8 mooncakes so I ordered a pack to try and another pack to give to my parents. 4 flavours are white lotus, pandan, green tea and peppermint.


Hmm. Could not wait till tonight where the kids could play with some lanterns while enjoying the mooncakes. I would go for the white lotus and peppermint. Which flavour do you like??

Happy Mid-Autumn!!

wow...the box looks so nice. Haze has been playing hide and seek with us, sometimes it came and sometimes it went away.

I love those blue & white crockery at the back. Tea cups or individual bowls?

I like traditional skin and lotus paste, don't mind a salted egg yolk or two. Did not buy any though, too expensive. Buy two, my whole family can go for a nice lunch, drinks included, with the money.

Have fun!!! Rain here, hope the weather is fine there.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! I like white lotus, peppermint, black beans, all with lots of kuachi! And of course a single yolk in it!

I am adventurous when it comes to mooncakes. Don't mind trying all the funky flavours around. Happy Mid Autumn festival to you and family :)

One of my favorite things to eat! :)

I love mooncakes, although most of my mooncakes this year were from Taiwan since I was travelling a lot this month. The peppermint one sounds really good. I've never tried that flavor before.

I got chocolate and pineapple ones this year. I think the most unusual one is pork floss + mung bean + salted egg which turned out to be really yummy.

My better half also got a Hakka mooncake, she told me she saw mui choy (the preserved vegetable) mooncakes too!

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival Rose! :)

Not a huge fan of mooncake but HB loves it.So he gotten quite a lot from Taiwan...surprisingly I love their mooncake because the skin is made from puff pastry.
