Happy Mid-Autumn/Lantern Festival

Tomorrow is Mid-Autumn or Lantern Festival. It is a day celebrated by all Chinese to welcome the abundance of harvest and togetherness. A day where we enjoy mooncakes under the full moon while children happily carry lanterns and walk around the neighborhood. I'm not going to bore you with the long winded detail, just click here for the full story if you are interested.

Look what arrived just in time for me to celebrate it? MOONCAKES!!! A gift from big boss Ray, owner of to thanks me for supporting and doing business with him, how nice huh? I was touched and so very happy because I love mooncakes and it is my yearly treat. Ray, a big THANK YOU for thinking of me while sending this gift. :) It's great being your friend and doing business with you. Love the products you sell and it will keep me coming back for more for sure.

For those who miss Malaysian mooncakes and not as lucky as me, you can buy it online at It comes in White Lotus with Double Yolks and Pandan Lotus with One Yolk. Check it out! :)

Lastly, happy mooncake/lantern/mid-autumn festival to all my readers! :D

What a pleasant holiday. Fall is a great time of year and I look forward to the changing color of the leaves.

Aren't you one lucky girl? I love pandan paste mooncakes and white lotus paste too. I also got a box of mooncakes from this family that runs a bakery, 4 different types but I didn't like the mixed nuts one. Too nutty. I like my mooncakes smooth.

Hi Mandy,
I already finished a box too. Love it, can't resist as well. I love the pandan lotus one, taste good! It's like lotus paste with the flavor of pandan added to it.

Hi Kelly,

You are so lucky. I didn't even think of buying one at the local Asian shop because it's going to costs a bomb and I will be eating it all alone :( No fun. It's nice to share a mooncake with another and sip a Chinese tea while admiring the beautiful full bright moon.

Thanks Baking Fiend, it's over but still have mooncakes to eat mah. :P

Hi Cooking Ninja,
Yeah, I'm sure lucky. Not many people are that generous these days. It really made my day!
