Happy Mid-Autumn Festival

We were supposed to buy some mooncakes for my girl to carry to Hatfield but we didn't manage to get them for her. Now she misses moon cakes and jokingly asks us to send over to her. 

Well, maybe she has to wait till she comes back for good. Otherwise, she can get from there too. But according to my friend in Essex, they are very expensive and normally they would wait for the sale after the festival.

I don't buy any moon cakes. Mostly they are given by my salespeople..

I just cut two of them..

the Royal Fairy..
sounds unique
cut it and see the inside..
looks good..



next is..
the Evergreen with single yolk

I was expecting something green..
but it's an ordinary lotus paste with a single yolk.

I have given away two mooncakes to one of my customers.
 I might give away the rest too..

I don't quite fancy moon cakes anyway..


Here's wishing:

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    2. But then even if buy the ingredient to make also turning to be quite expensive. One packet of ingredient the paste can go up to RM20-R<30 leh...Then add the egg yolk and etc leh.

      Now seldom make the paste at home. mostly buy and make
