It is the time of year where we give and receive mooncakes to celebrate the mid-autumn festival. We used to play with lots of lanterns as children… ah, the good ol’ days. We did however still love our basic mooncakes and animal shapes. None of this ping bei business, please (those are usually given as gifts, but really they can’t beat the traditional crust with red bean filling).
Our selection of red bean paste mooncakes in animal shapes and traditional moon shape (top right). Nice to look at, nice to eat! These were bought from the SS2 Sunday market, except for the piggy with the ribbon… Pinkydoodles bought that one from somewhere else.
