This year I haven't eaten any mooncake yet. Honestly, I fancy those gorgeous mooncake boxes and gift bags more than mooncakes. LOL. In the past, mooncakes came in paper cartons. Today, the packaging of the mooncakes has become more elaborate!


Modern electric lanterns.

Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat mooncakes under the moon. Alright, my siblings are waiting for me to have dinner together. I'll be back for more updates soon and also visit your site.

Happy Mooncake Festival everyone!

Hi Monica, I only love those mix nuts mooncakes, but will take a pass at those with eggs in them.
A friend gave us one....she orang puteh,...not keen on it.
Enjoy the festival. You going to carry a lantern? Ha ha. Lee.

Those colourful lanterns really remind me of my childhood. Happy times!

Happy Mid-Autumn festival! :D

Yeah, the packaging these days is so much better than the mooncakes itself ... LOL!

I bought the healthy mooncake from Amway end of July and finished it in August. My children dont like it. I stuffed all into my tummy. Hopefully I dont get diabetic.
We had a gathering at my mom's house to celebrate my son's birthday with cake but without mooncake.

U.Lee,
I hardly ever carry any lanterns since young.. hahaha..

CC,
you miss those days, huh? ;-)

Nick,
but, why pay more for the exquisite packaging, right?

Gallivanter,
give me all the yolks!!!! LOL

Molly,
I'd go for healthy mooncakes next time; sugarless and low calories :-D
How was the birthday party?

Hey, you are just like my younger brother. This year, I didn't buy any mooncakes. My brother did - not because he wanted to eat but just to collect the boxes. I got to eat those mooncakes! Pretty good deal, don't you agree? LOL

Happy Belated Mid-Autumn Festival.

Every year will buy 4 moon cakes from Amway.

Give to my po po, her sister and her friend.

And one for myself...:)

Hi sweetie! Having mooncake under the moon sounds cool, have fun! I've not had any mooncake yet this year, this weekend perhaps. :D
