Mooncakes for sale already?

I was surprised to receive the Shang Palace mooncake menu back in July.

The only thing that crossed my mind was the Durian Ping Pei Moon cake.

The memory of buying a whole piece and chewing it on the way while driving back home can send shivers down the spine.

But then i realised, when is exactly Mid-Autumn Festival?

October 3 2009.

Mooncakes are already officially on sale since July.

Isn't abit too early to start eating mooncakes till October?

The million dollar question for everyone to ponder.

Its Friday!

Guess what??? I spotted mooncake here 2 weeks ago and so tempted to grab a box until i saw the price....almost AUD40 for a box of 4...imported from HK. Sniff sniff. I just put it back down and walked away.

I'm not a fan of mooncake until I saw the mochi mooncake from Taiwan.

Good news is, we can buy it at Jusco now.

I read abt the truffle mooncake. Must give that a try. sounds so decadent but just irrestible.

I'm not really surprised... early birds get the worm~~~
someone once told me that the sales proceed from mooncake can actually cover the operation cost for at least 6 months... some last until one year... can u believe that??? the margin is just unbelieveable
