Mid Autumn Festival – Part II

Lotus paste with salted egg yolk remains my all time favourite. Another one will the Mix Fruits and Nuts. Tho I can’t say it’s my favourite but I have craving to eat at least one piece during the season to satisfy my soul.

I don’t quite figure out why do they named it “Fruits” when I don’t see any fruits in them. Ingredients: Walnuts, Almond, melon seeds, sesame seeds, peanuts, maltose, winter melon sugar, lards and etc… etc… etc… This is the most unhealthy mooncake of all. Very sweet and very high in colesterol! A cup of green tea is the best way to go with this during tea break.

How many of you out there still practise the chinese custom of exchanging gift during festival? I do! My siblings does! Sad to say only a very small minority of my in-laws doesn’t practise that 🙁 . During my first year of marriage, I used to buy for them but have never get anything back in return. That goes on for about few years before I told hubby he has the worst relatives of all that I’ve known. I know it’s the thought that count but after many years of I-did-not-ask-u-to-buy feedback, I grew tired of it and stop eventually. In Chinese, I always believe that mother plays a very important role to nurture their children. When anything goes wrong, all fingers will point at their mom and not dad. With this, I vow to God that I will continue what my mom taught me and pass it down to my children.

oops… sorry that I carried myself away. Back to the mooncake, I received a package from my sisters (share-share among 2 sisters)

Tupperware version of hamper set. 3 containers- Blue, yellow and red.

A pack of green tea

2 pieces of mooncake

One of them with the word “Tupperware” crafted! So cute can die lidat. Price wise is not that expensive considered it is “Tupperware”. I’ll repeat that again. “T.U.P.P.E.R.W.A.R.E”!!!

I.Am.A.Tupperware.Geek.! Nevermind if I don’t get the mooncake. Just give me Tupperware.

Well, another 1 week to go before the festival end, if you forget, remember to buy a mooncake for the elderly this weekend and don’t forget the lantern too. Have a great weekend ahead and say hi to your mom for me 😀

    Not really into mooncake but just for the custom’s sake .. take some. No particular favorite taste as long as it’s not too sweet.

    Do follow strictly though in the traditions of giving mooncakes to elders .. hmm .. my Mum taught me well. 🙂

    The only ingredient I like about moon cakes is the egg yolk. *yum*

    Moon cake with tea is the best combination for me, Tupperware really know how to market their stuff. 😀
