It that time of the year again!(Thinking Feminine Issues?) What?! Not that!! It's time for family time again, children's put down the Smart Devices and light up some lanterns and light up the night. Family sit around under the moonlight, enjoy tea, company and MONNCAKE! Yes my dearies, the MID AUTUMN FESTIVAL is around the corner. In conjunction with the Festivity Gurney Paragon has Organized a MoonCake Fair! WHAT? A Mooncake fair where you can pick up MOONCAKES to enjoy on a festive night or present as a gift.

Here are my brief thoughts on the mooncakes, Lets START!
Canton - i
Organic Charcoal Skin W Coffee Paste - The Coffee Taste ain't too strong, very settle, texture is good not too sticky.
Snow Skin Musang Skin Durian - Bitter Durian Mooncake, I don't take durian but I Smell the difference
Snow Skin D24 Durian - I'm kinda ok with this one as its sweet and not too heavy.
White Tea Purple Potato Lotus Paste - The Lotus Paste was blended with White tea, it's a lil less mainstream and it's not too sweet nor bitter great taste for older generations. The Skin is made out from Purple Potato.
Green Tea Skin White Lotus Paste - Ok, I might be a lil bias on this because I love Green tea. It may not be as bitter as normal green tea but the taste of green tea with it's unique texture of the paste. If you love green tea you may love this too! ;)
Puer Tea, Dang Gui, Chinese Wolfberry, assorted nut paste Mooncake - That was a mouth full! Anyways, this wasn't my slice of mooncake. If you like herbal taste and nutty texture, this is definitely worth checking out!
Intense Wheatgrass Jujube Splender - mild wheatgrass taste, sweet too.
Ballad of The Moon - Custard Filling & the Middle is Custard mix with egg yolk, Milky taste & taste similar to Butter Scotch too.
Lunar Delight - 'Dodol' Like Texture, not the super sticky type don't get me wrong. Very Strong Coffee taste, they used coffee powder, this is what I call Bitter Sweet.
Cappuccino Mooncake - Very mild cappuccino taste, my taste buds weren't impressed.
White Lotus Paste W Yolk - I don't know if it's me or this taste a lil like yam? But I really enjoy this.
Egg Custard Mooncake - Mini Mooncakes, milky taste. Children will love this and those who have a thing for butterscotch and milk.
Kum Lum Tai
Shanghai 1 Yolk - Flaky Skin with Soft lotus paste, this is great if you're looking into something different and it taste good too.
Avocado Mango Tango - Coconut Butter Pastry Skin, Avocado Lotus Paste with Mango Filling. tasteful journey.
Crimson Opera - The Cheese and White Chocolate Feeling is really unique, love cheese try this!
