It's the time of the year to indulge once again (actually it seems like there's always a reason to indulge all year round huh).

Anyway, it's one of my favourite times of the year, as one of my most craved food - the mooncakes are here! Hooray to the Mid Autumn Festival/ Mooncake Festival! (Lantern Festival?).

mooncake, raffles mooncake

I remember last time when younger, I was all into the lian yong mooncakes. Well, they are still nice and I do chump on them as well.

But ever since I was introduced to the champagne snow skin moooncakes, they somehow are no. 1 on my taste buds now.

So while every year, I do buy the lian yong mooncakes, I do also make sure I get this most 'prized' mooncake - yes, the famous Raffles Hotel mooncakes!


Prices have somewhat gone up this year, and the mooncakes are now pricier (the priciest ever) - we are talking about $6 for a small piece or so.

But like many mooncake lovers, I must still get some ('die die must try!)... yes, queue or no queue! (haha, I know this sounds kinda kiasu).

mooncake, champagne

I was 'worried' I wouldn't be able to try the mooncakes this time round as I've been traveling a bit... but, lucky me - as a few days back I managed to sinfully indulge in the round cakes.

And yes, it tastes just like what I expected - soft texture, melt in your mouth, and simply delicious.

Another round? :)

*The champagne mooncakes may look plain from the outside, but don't be fooled for within it, this mooncake is simply delicious! And my family agrees too. In fact, one of my Malaysian friend even asks about it... ! (really, it is quite popular).

*The Mid Autumn Festival has a special place within me as well, not just because of mooncakes, but because during uni, I was in the play on the Mooncake story - yes, playing non other than Chang Er! lol.

Btw, any of you cook your own mooncakes? :)
