Happy Moocake Festival

Tomorrow is Chinese lunar calendar 八月十五 and the main "character" is of cause the Mooncake and the big round moon up there. For the mooncake, this year more and more new flavour coming up, as what I watch from TV (particularly not out for shopping almost a month liow..) there are durian, coffee, green tea, dragon fruit, wolf berry and etc..some of these flavor I think it came out last few years too..

My taste buds for mooncake is always something in cold. Thus, I like 冰皮 very very much. Few years back started to have Jelly Mooncake, wow, thats even great! I bought a few every year and ate on my own. None of my family likes it, they are more prefer to yolk, lotus and nuts. I do like traditional one too, but at one go I only can eat 2 slices then I started to feel boring.

The above one showing is the home-made Jelly mooncake. Taste yummy. I ate almost all, now left one only. The round green is Cendol filling, red is red bean, the square yellow is sweet corn, while the square red is yam. All taste very very nice, not very sweet. Especially the red bean fillings, the bean taste is very fragrant. Someone gave this to hubby, I'm not sure who is the maker, else I will definitely buy more from her. Too love to eat jelly mooncake.

As usual tomorrow will back to FIL house to have family dinner. This year can't play candle and lantern with Terry yet, next year can go with him. Think he should like it by then. You know what, during my secondary school years I still playing it by myself. I like those Japanese lantern. Small, cute and nice. The last time I played was last 3 years with my cousin's kids...wow miss that a lot now!

Here wishes all bloggers a very Happy Mooncake Festival, may you have a great time gathering with your love ones and family.

I love to eat jelly mooncake too. Last week was my first time eating jelly mooncake. Usually I don't eat mooncake at all. But once I tried the jelly mooncake, I like it very much. A friend of my dad gave it to him and it's from homemade too. I can't find people selling jelly mooncake elsewhere...
