Wishing All a Blessed Mid-Autumn Festival

I'm going back to my parents' tonight to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with my family and my boiboi. I know he can't wait to play with lantern again tonight. Are you guys feasting with your family and friends too?

Wishing all of you a safe and blessed Mid-Autumn Festival.

No write-ups about the festival since I've done so previously. Not much mooncakes to share either since I don't have my digicam with me. Managed to captured these with my phone and they looked lousy since it's taken last night.

These are homemade TeoChew Single Yolk Yam Paste. This type of mooncake is deep fried hence the flaky pastry that spirals around the fillings are crispy and very fragrant. I liked this one cos it's not sweet and has yam, my fave. Have to finish these up quickly though as they tend to turn rancid very fast in our weather.

I've got a couple of photos that were taken last year but not featured here. These flat discs are actually a type of mooncake. Also from the TeoChew clan, these mooncake have flaky pastry as well but baked instead. The one shown here are with red bean paste filling. I've gotten a couple this year and I managed to get my favourite - white lotus paste filling and hubby picked a crystal filling that has candied winter melon. Will take the pics once I opened the package up. This year I got them from Setapak TeoChew Restaurant just as previously. Other than getting this type of pastry during the festival, I could also get hold of them other times from certain places but they sell those from the famous Yong Sheng Confectionery originated from Muar, Johor.

Happy Lantern festival!!!

Overseas exports to Perth for the past 5 yrs or so! Very popular!!! They are expensive, about AU$36 BUT cheaper than those freshly made in Aus (costs about AU$40+). Since it is a once a year event, might as well spurge a few more dollars to but edible ones.. hehehe.

Tha yam paste mooncake looks like the kind of mooncake I would love to eat...I am not a big fan of mooncakes because they are too sweet, but with yam paste, why not?
