well... its again mooncake festival... the moon festival is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese. what is mooncake festival? you can read it here to know better^^
My mom ever told me, the moon festival is for togetherness, the round shape of the cake itself represent wholeness... that's why though I'm not a big fans of mooncake I still eat a bit to follow the tradition.
look at my pictures, the traditional mooncake is the left one, lotus seed paste inside with whole salted egg yolks in its center to symbolize the full moon. the right one is called snowskin mooncake. snowskins come in many flavours like taro, green tea, strawberry, durian, and... you named it!^^ I like snowskin better than traditional, because it is chewy and sometimes served cold.
so happy mooncake festival! bite and chew ur cake slowly to taste the sweetness and dont forget a cup of hot green tea *no sugar please^^
