Just as we thought the recession has hit the vendors badly (that’s why they have not sent us any mooncakes), we got two boxes of mooncakes delivered to our office today. The vendors remembered us after all.
One vendor gave us mooncakes from Fairmont/Raffles City. That box of mooncakes were so so only, we found it a tad too oily.
But this one from Conrad Centennial Singapore was nicer, both in terms of packaging and taste. The packaging is a bit too extravagant and wasteful. A colleague said he is going to recycle it, so that it wont be wasted. He’s bringing it back for his wife to put her jewelry. 🙂
The office table’s messy so pardon my messy background photo. Everyone’s waiting to try it, so I only had like 10 seconds to snap the photos.
They are most probably trying to replicate the ‘tingkat containers’.
When you open it, you see four layers.
There are four mooncakes with different ‘fillings’.
We were all guessing how much of the cost went to the packaging. Probably the same amount as the mooncakes? But it does look very elegant as a gift.
We gave this a thumbs up in taste. The filling is not too oily, the skin is nice too.
