Happy Mooncake Festival.....

As tomorrow is mid autumn festival or mooncake festival for the Chinese I had yet to make any mooncake jelly which I usually do every year. Due to my condo renovation here and rushing round town buying lightings and furnishing keeps me away from the kitchen most of the time. But I still do have some mooncakes given by friends and relatives to have a bite in. These days they come pack in beautiful boxes which could be recycle for other uses........



These are given by MIL .She never fail to buy us a box every year eventhough she is old and frail......




These were bought buy Janet .............


These sugar free ones are from Taiwan at rm6+ per small piece comes in heart shaped boxes.


A lotus paste mooncake with nuts and salted egg yolk....


These cute and tiny ones were given by niece Jocelyn. The fillings are red bean paste with melon seeds.


This expensive jelly mooncake with birdnest was bought by son H at rm 16.90 per piece for his dear mummy. I reprimand him that he should have ask me to make one instead of spending his pocket money on such an expensive item. But anyway it is the thoughts that counts and I am no where in my circumstances to make any this year. See my last year 's creation here.

Oh wow, what a lot of mooncakes. :) haven't visited your blog in a while cos keep having problems opening it. Maybe cos of the additional widgets etc. Aww... you shudn't scold him. It's his thoughts and he was willing to sacrifice his money to buy you something from the bottom of his heart. You shud thank him instead.
