    I love eating this mixed nuts mooncake! Been years since I had them as not many places make good ones anymore. I haven’t been able to find it in S’pore as most mooncakes here are commercialized with new flavors like durian, kopi, chocolate etc… Wish I was there in KL when your team did this demo.

    Mooncakes are just fascinating… I’ve never made nor eaten one, but I can’t help but admire their beauty all the same!
