Happy Mid-Autumn Festival
"How I miss the days of old
When things were so much simpler
We prized what was within
More than a pretty exterior"
Da Zhong Guo (大中国) makes traditional mooncakes, which I'm glad to see still come in old school packaging. It hasn't joined the others in churning out elaborately overwrought (and expensive!) boxes. Ironically, this way it stands out from the rest.
And the mooncakes? Well, they're traditional as well - no new-fangled flavours. Doesn't stop the lines from forming though. At the Takashimaya mooncake bazaar, they are the ONLY stall that did not offer samples. They simply didn't need to. They move boxes simply by their established brand. Personally their product is a little too heavy for my liking, but I appreciate that they are at least more eco-friendly with minimal packaging.
Hope you enjoyed the mid-autumn festivities and calories.
