Well you learn something new everyday! I had never heard of moon cakes before =^..^=

CaroScat said...

That's a new one on us! Is there a sun cake?

jul said...

Uhm...yummy, still contemplating to get a set of them sold at K4. Love lotus paste filling. The other hubby brought back 2 pieces and he finished them all by himself..not nice of him. Yelah puasa puasa ini my saliva more inclined to prey on Malay kuihs however salivating the cake from moon is.

Purr...miao2x

mm the Mid-Autumn Festival are here again.. the lantern festival.
I remembered accompanying my two sisters carrying lanterns on the night of idulfitri in Pulau Duyong.. might as well carry the lantern then.. the electricity only grace the island in the 70's.. The light from lanterns gave the boys enough light to have fun with their equally boisterous friends

Sandy said...

Yumm mooncake ! I like the lotus filling too, not so keen on the red bean variety. I didn't know cats love mooncakes too, Kitty the cat doesn't like moon cake, he prefers Jack n Jill potato chips hahaha onion flavour specifically.

Pat said...

Have you tried durian mooncake? The one I tried was super-yummm! I'm sure you'd've liked it, sweety!

one of Fae's humans said...

Tamago-san,
Try asking at your corner Asian grocery shop. The ones we saw in Sydney were imported from Malaysia at very exorbitant prices. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Marilia,
It is very yummmy. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Kitcaboodles,
Perhaps it's time for another visit? purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Caro,
Maybe if we use sunflower seeds paste instead of lotus seed, we may rename it as sun cake then. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Jul,
Kitacdah 6 tahun tak makannya...itu pasal! purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Caren,
Look around your suburb, ask the lady at the Asian corner shop. Never know what you'll find. purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

m.q. dear,
Sorry! Finito! purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Aby,
Kena cubalah. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Your Royal Monyetness,
Banana filling? Nah...too common! purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Island Cats,
Would be hard to partake in a rebellion if everyone is under the influence of nip. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,
Let's go see if anyone is selling any feline shaped lanterns. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
That is one very expensive moon cake. Can buy many kilos of kibbles with the price of this one. Nah...no red bean for us too. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
No...we're purists. Only traditional ones. Not even the snow-skinned ones, let alone lulian. purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Fae's human,
We saw them sold in Sydney, imported from Malaysia. So, who knows, you could get them in Brizzy too. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Meoww,
Sorry...dah abis! burp! purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Pakcik dear,
Akok is more fattening, so is nekbat. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty CS,
Kalau mencari jodoh, kita tulis nama dgn nombor telpon atas limau, lepas tu buang ke laut. purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Ninot,
The only icecream we eat around here is magnum. Period. Moon cakes must be d traditional ones only. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Au & Target,
Mama said we're high maintenance. purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

MKG dear,
It is! purrrr *giggles*

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Cat, I love Mooncakes! But will only go for those with mix nuts, nothing else. Will avoid any with eggs inside.
Holy Smoke! Time sure flies.....Hari raya around the corner.....then X'mas.

So? What is mom going to make for Raya? Dodol? Ketupat, ayam rendang, satay?
You done your shopping?
Credit cards keluar asap? Ha ha.
Have fun.
Lee.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Lee,
Oh yes. No egg yolks for us. No need for fancy stuff. Just lotus seed paste for us. Dad's plastic money has been smoking. Mama's been buying stuff for the house. purrrr *giggles*

LP said...

Daddyman's parents are from China so LP knows all about moon cakes. She really likes them but Daddyman does not like them!:P

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cottage Felines,
Each to his own. Maybe he finds it too sweet. purrrr *giggles*

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

The 7th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar isn't even over yet and people have started selling mooncakes and lanterns! It's like selling Christmas decorations in July! Mooncakes are nice to eat only in small quantities. Try to eat more than 5 wedges at one sitting and anyone would find it too sweet and cloying. Okay, I once ate 16 pieces at one sitting and lived to tell the tale!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

OMG! Never thought you're mooncake greedy, CO78. Yeah...wait till u see our lantern. purrr *giggles*
