Mooncakes Season 2013 (Part II)

I had these photos in my camera and I thought I better post them before the season is over. We were playing with soft toys and food. Some of the mooncakes we had that was quite nice. Since I am posting it, I also have some photos of the mooncakes we receive in my day job office.

Yan Ting, St Regis Singapore.

The Care Bears is staring intensely at it, because the ones here is quite nice.
I realized I did not take photo of the whole box, many people have posted it, so you can take a look.

This flavour is the Royal Milk Tea Snowskin Mooncake with Red Bean Paste & White Chocolate Champagne Truffle.

I have this weakness for Royal Milk Tea flavours. The white chocolate truffle is quite delicious too. The thing about snowskin mooncake is that can eat quite a few of it at the same time!

These are quite good and they should still be available from St Regis’ lobby.

Goods of Desire

This was the shown in the previous mooncake series earlier, but this was for the fun of it.
Care bears are giggling because of the cheeky butt.

Just to let you see what’s inside the bum!

Wah Lok

This box of mooncakes is what we got from vendors in my day job.
Wah Lok has nice Cantonese food, so we were quite tempted to try it.

Not a fancy box that you will keep after consuming the moon cakes, but the design is like a lantern to me.

Open the box, and you see a piece of paper telling you it’s from Wah Lok.

The colour of the skin of this baked mooncake is quite nice.
This was the White Lotus Paste with Single Egg Yolk.

It has a nice smooth texture, the white lotus paste looks quite good too!
It’s the nicest of the many brands that we have in the office.


Park Hotel Group

I think many people got this. You see it on many people’s Facebook pages.

It’s from Park Palace, their Cantonese restaurant.

Our boss was saying is it from the Dim Sum place that we used to go? There’s a voucher that gives you a whole signature Roast Duck if you spend a minimum of x number of dollars there. We are hoping boss will know what to do.

A darker colour than Wah Lok’s, but it’s nice looking.
Box is simple, and also not for keeping, so people in office aren’t ‘choping’ it.

Taste is quite all right. Like most deliveries to work place by different vendors that supplies things to our office, it’s not the snow skin type. We realised many colleagues in office prefer the snow skin variety.

One colleague’s wife also make us snow skin varieties and it’s the best we have so far in office! Thanks Mrs L! Make for us again next year!

We have gotten wary of some mooncakes too. Some look OK, but when you eat it, you get the runs. We had some last Friday and found out on Monday, the few of us all had stomach cramps and the ‘ka boosh’ and we instantly knew which one caused it. (It’s not from the above, it’s from a local coffee chain, we think they better stick to coffee)
