Sunway Green Tea Snow Skin with White Lotus Paste and Sake Kuaci

The 15th day of the 8th Lunar month happened to fall on mid September this year and the Mid-Autumn Festival or “Zhongqiu” Festival will be celebrated. Lunar worshiping and moon watching are part of the ritual during the night of the celebration day while mooncakes are offered between friends and even during family gatherings. It was treated as luxury when I was a child and my dad will make sure we will have a least a box for this special occasion. We the kids we jumping up and down with joy when the mooncake was sliced and looking at the golden orangy salted duck egg yolk was just a glowing jewel with dismay. Now the mooncakes come in awesome beautiful packaging and huge range of flavours and colours. Basically you can have them in golden baked or snow skin while the fillings can be anything beyond your imagination such as white lotus paste, lotus paste, chestnut paste, red bean paste, chocolate brownie and even sweet potato paste. Just awesomely amazing. It makes you just wanting to try them all.

Anyway my mission was to learn, understand and have my hands all over the mooncakes.

Gosh . . . . an amazing variety spread of mooncakes waiting for me to taste . . . I just felt like I was an emperor at that moment endulging the mooncakes in my beautiful dining room. Sssssssssshhhhhhhhh…… I was a bit greedy as I had also set my eyes on this delighted golden orangy dessert just sitting infront of me, refusingly to leave me alone . . . . a chilled mango puree with vanilla ice cream, sago and pamelo . . . just exactly what I had in Hong Kong last year . . . so yummy especially you are a sweetie fan.

Oh! I was so lucky . . . as I got to taste other baked mooncakes available at the Prince Hotel, Kuala Lumpur such as the pandan & pumpkin paste with single egg yolk, white lotus paste with macadamia nuts and also my favourate one, five variety nut with rum and raisins. I truely felt this trip was so worth while and so fruitful as I was educated about the varieties of mooncakes available and yet get to experience the learning from the chef himself, Chef Loo.
