Mooncakes From Ming Yue Confectionery

My kids love to eat mooncakes, I guess they take after their father, he could finish one mooncake at one go!  I definitely cannot do that... no way... mooncakes are very sweet.  During my younger days, I love to take mooncakes with egg yolks, single or double as long as they are there...   But now?  I prefer them without the egg yolks... I feel kind of "geli" already when the egg yolk is there... why is it so?  hmmmm.....

For mooncake lovers, there is this shop here which sells freshly baked mooncakes every day... and they are sold out in no time....  When I went there the other day, I was so happy when I saw trays of mooncakes being brought out from the kitchen.... and then the people including me, started to line up..... 
In front of the shop....
the staff were pretty fast in their jobs... 
I didn't have to wait long.. just 5 minutes or so...
maybe I was the first few early birds....hahahaa...
 After I got my mooncakes, the line became longer....
Here is the shop name.... 
It is advisable to call them first to find out more....
The shop is just opposite Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji...
I bought two to try.....
It was still a bit warm when I cut it...
The white lotus paste with lots of "kwa chi"
This is considered one of the cheapest mooncake one can ever find in town....
Only only RM6+
Cheap and Nice!

  1. *High five*. I never like mooncake with egg yolk. My favourite is "hong chio pia" and sometimes take a piece or two with lotus. Must drink tea to go with it.

  2. wah, fresh from the oven daily, limited availability, "pei bok haam leng" (thin skin rich filling) and only at RM6 each!! still can get RM6 mooncake, i thought now like RM15 a piece, so expensive.. no wonder so many people queuing to buy that.. i actually like plain lotus paste lah, don't like those with egg yolk..

  14. You eat them immediately? My sister-in-law used to buy from her friend home baked ones and was told to eat them after three days. Did not ask her why as those days not that KPC. Guess need time for the flavor to give the kick I think haha.

  15. Actually the cost is cheap just that the advertisement and branding jack up the prices.

    ReplyDelete
  16. wenn: me too.. now avoiding egg yolks.. :)


    bananaz: who are B, L and D? :)
    Yes, actually not so expensive one.. why they want to jack up? maybe bec of the boxes la... nowadays the packing very canggih one!

  17. Wow! Every one is crazy about mooncakes over there. Must be really good.

    I like the traditional flavour without yolk: pure lotus, white lotus. But this year I tried something different. Shanghai pure lotus mooncake. Very nice!!

    and also tiramisu mooncake; but being a non-coffee lover, it is not my kind of mooncake. :p

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
