It's called Mid Autumn Festival.

It's 15th day of the 8th Lunar Month which is 21 days from today.

If you can afford, The Oriental is selling their mooncake at $888.00 for 8 small snow skin mooncake.

If you can't afford, then any hotel mooncake will do.

Every year around MCF, Ngee Ann City atrium got moon cake sale one. Just go for one round, try all the samples, then pick the best one lor.
I like the Tung Lok white lotus ones :bsmilie:
Anyway, moon cakes packaging down here no fight with China one. Over there the packaging really tok kong, all kinds of incredibly fancy designs, and some come with cans of tea as well. I think some of the packaging is more expensive than the mooncakes inside. Good for gifts.

It's okay. I can live with the soft shadows which I need for my product shots.

My ring flash is very big one. It's around 3 feet in diameter. I wish they make moon cakes this big. :bsmilie:

The best one is the one my grandmother made. :lovegrin:
actually its simple to make....

but u need time and effort and dedication to make a good mooncake.

My mum taught me and passed down family recipes of other foods too.

the first thing is, selecting lotus seeds (if u wanna make the lotus paste) else go traditional and use red bean...again...selections. until one passes this step, forget about producing really good mooncakes :)
