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

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
