This box of mooncakes was given by one of our vendors, Oracle.
We have never got mooncakes from Oracle (Database), but we have always been getting mooncakes from Sun. Since Sun has become Oracle, we now get them Oracle (Sun). Confused?
Anyway, Oracle gave us mooncakes from Fairmont Hotel / Swissotel.
Here you see my colleague tearing off the Oracle sticker stuck on it. (He is the mysql person!)
The is how it looks from a bird’s eye view.
When I saw this box of mooncakes, I was happy. It’s the same one that my mum and sis have spent time tasting at Takashimaya’s basement few weeks ago that I had to pay to be given to Momo’s mum. Mum and Sis said this was one of the better tasting one and it has a nice box too! I finally got to taste it!
It’s very orange!
This is how it looks after I took out the plastic wrapper.
That says “Shuang huang” which means double yolks.
The texture of the lotus paste was smooth and not very oily.
It was also quite fragrant.
The skin was nice to nibble too.
