Or you know, Moon cake.
I mean, there is a sort of moon cake in Japan (called 月餅geppei), but it's baked and always filled with anko paste. With the Mid-Autumn Festival just over, I've been craving mooncakes. The traditional ones with Lotus Paste, the Durian flavoured ones, the ones with a Chocolate-and-Rum cream center, and probably most of all, the Snow Skin Mooncakes (which is really 90% of the mooncakes I eat in Singapore).
So thanks to my awesome mom (and family, but I asked my mom first~), I had a package of mooncakes sent over. Considering that the postage cost more than the ingredients and mooncake mold, I can say with confidence that you've touched the three Singaporeans here. Rena, Nicholas and I were so happy to be able to eat Snow Skin Mooncakes on Mid-Autumn
Of course, we're ignoring the fact that we couldn't (赏月shang yue, literally appreciate the moon. In Japanese, it's called 月見tsukimi - Looking at the Moon) because of a Typhoon, and we had no lanterns, but still, the important fact remains - We Had Mooncakes.
