Mooncakes

Before we went to KL last Sunday, I received this box of agar-agar mooncakes from my cousin SIL. She is good in making this type of mooncakes. And she used to give me a box practically every year.

The boss kept in the fridge and I couldn't find it among those drinks. I only found it yesterday and I finished almost three quarter of them. My boy and girl disliked them. My mum had a quarter of each type. My girl just ate a quarter of two types only.

Later my girl in KL asked me to keep for her. Unfortunately, I had finished them all as they had begun to become watery.
Thanks SB!

While I was in KL, an acquaintance gave us this special mooncakes from Purple Cane.

all kinds of tea-flavored mooncakes
: jasmine, rose, green tea, puer tea

I like green tea the most!
Thanks LS!

Happy Mooncake Festival!
It's on the 19 September this year.
A good day for doing something special!

  5. i actually like jelly mooncakes, because they are not as not as oily and hence not as "jelak" as the usual mooncakes.. and that explains why you could finished 3/4 in one shot!! haha~~ :D

  6. mooncakes are getting more and more expensive every year.. sometimes i think it's really not worth to spend like RM15 to get just one mooncake, it's time to learn to make our own, agree?? :p

  7. I like to eat any jellies that are well made. I would prefer them not to call it Jelly Moon Cakes when there has been a proper recipe for the traditional moon cakes since the ancient days in China.

  9. I was told that moon cakes were created to pray to the Goddess of The Moon during the Song Dynasty. That was so long ago. Now our taste buds revolution have created new innovative flavours like jelly moon cakes and Raja Musang Moon Cakes which are so expensive!

  16. Happy Mooncake Festival to you and your family, Wenn. Haha, to think I have yet to taste agar agar mooncakes because I am very conservative and scared to try new types. So nice of your cousin SIL to give them to you every year.
