It is almost the time of the year again, the Mid Autumn Festival or 中秋节 is just around the corner. Wonder if there is any Mooncake Lantern available in the market for this Lantern Festival?

The Golden Chinese Ham with Assorted Nuts Mooncake (伍仁金火腿月餅). Very ocipala. *Busy counting the evil calories hidden inside each bite*

The Liulian Durian Mooncake with Yolk - I presume Angel will like this, since she hearts and lup liulian very much. I can imagine Angel singing 月饼 月饼,我爱你 this coming Mooncake Festival. Hahahaha..

Which one is your favourite? The traditional baked mooncake, the snowskin (peng pei) mooncake or the jelly mooncake? The traditional and simple flavour or the modern and exotic flavour? IMHO, the lotus paste with salted egg yolk ham dan plus kuaci is still the best. And err.. I wanna eat the whisky and champagne mooncake !! *Wishful Thought*

*I presume the Moo Moos will love Mooooooooooo..ncake too*

Chen said...

*piak Ehon for not knowing when is the actual date for mooncake festival*

Not tomorrow lah
This coming Tuesday lah..
25th September :D

Enjoy your Mooooooooooooooooncake

yeah, the peng pei mooncake is nice. I bought few mini snowskin mooncake few days back from the vegetarian shop - with dragonfruit, red bean and lotus paste & i love it :)

mich said...

Doreen said...

Durian mooncake!?! (0_0)!! Got durian mooncake?? with egg york somemore?? I WANT!! I WANT I WANT!! Wonder if I can ask my mum to buy and freeze it till for 6 month for me? Emm.... I WANT durian mooncake lah!

Chen said...

u still get it partially correct then regarding the date since MCF falls on Tuesday but it's 25th September instead of 26th :P

I have never tried the tiramisu mooncake. Another mooncake that i'm curious of is the cheese mooncake (which i didn't buy). Yeah, nowadays most people buy the low sugar mooncake (and these mooncake are more expensive then the "normal" mooncake, ish..)

Hhahaha, i presume your MIL gonna be loves mooncake? Else how she consume so much... I will feel jelak if i eat too much :D

Hehhehe... actually hoh, the durian mooncake is available for quite some time liao.. at least since 5 years ago. But the previous durian mooncake dun come with yolk :D

Can, ask your mum to buy and freeze for u. My sister in law's fren's father bought the mooncake and freeze for his daughters who are working overseas too :D

I lup peng pei...

J.T. said...

I've never really tasted the snowskin or jelly mooncakes. The ones I always had were the traditionally baked ones with lotus paste. I prefer them plain, maybe with kuaci but that's about it. oh yeah... durian would be lovely. :P

I wonder what the whisky and champagne mooncakes taste like. :)

Chen said...

snowy and cold..
Yummmmm... Too bad i dun have any inside my fridge :P

I have never tried the jelly mooncake either, but the snowskin mooncake is nice, as it is kept inside the fridge and served cold (the same goes to jelly mooncake).

I read about the whisky and champagne snowskin mooncake by Bakerzin's (in KL) last year, which sounds good. Hahaha, but never get the chance to taste it :) Dunno whether they still produce the same mooncake this year.

gLaDieZz said...

The assorted nuts one looks nice... Slrrp! Also, the noodles, yummylicious!!!!

mistipurple said...
