Happy Mid Autumn Festival

While I don't celebrate the mid autumn festival, it sure didn't stop me from enjoying a mooncake feast each year, come the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar. Zaini and I simply love mooncakes and we always get excited when the festival is approaching.

I received a generous amount of mooncakes (although not as many as previous years) to be shared with Zaini and Raimie. Got my first taste of golden floss mooncake and I loved it! The sweet taste of the mooncake and the salty, spicy taste of the meat floss really goes well together without the oiliness that comes from egg yolks.

To those celebrating the festival, Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

    we love it so much that I'll gladly take mooncakes from those who didn't like them or eat them at the office. :p

  8. @ladyviral,
    We got plenty. The office people know that I love them, so even if I'm not in the office (last year we were away when the festival approaches) but they kept my portion. So kind of them....
