Though it is getting chilly outside – on the bright note – it’s also Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節) coming up…aka Mooncake time!  (this is year it’s on Sept 29th, 2012)


When I was a kid – Mid-Autumn festival means running around with a lantern and eating these yummy cakes.  Also looking at the bright full moon. And it usually means going out to town to celebrate and staying up late. =)

Bakeries make many kinds of mooncake these days – the standard one is the double egg yolk lotus paste, but it comes in variety of flavours now – even ice cream versions.  But the best in my opinion is the FOUR egg yolk lotus ones!  Egg yolk in every bite!  Haven’t bought any yet this year, but got this as a gift from Nick’s parents – only 2 eggs, but still so good!
