The Wonderful World of Mooncakes
Mooncake festival happened just last week on the 22nd September and my over indulgence has made me a little rounder, just like a mooncake. The wide assortment of mooncakes, from new creations to traditional favourites are simply delightful and Tangs the department store has done a brilliant poster featuring the Wonderful World of Mooncakes. Among countries such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore where a large population of Chinese reside, Singapore seems to have come up tops in terms of mooncake creativity. The snow skin mooncakes that come in a variety of pretty pastel colours were actually first created in Singapore, not to mention the exotic varieties of fillings. There are even ice-cream mooncakes and my childhood favourite - little pigs made with mooncake crust.
