It is believed that the moon is at its roundest and brightest on the 15th August of the lunar calendar. On this day, family members gather and feast together as full moon signifies reunion. Mooncakes are a must-have during this reunion, traditionally known as Mid-Autumn Festival. This year, Tao’s Chinese Cuisine’s Master Dim Sum Chef, Chef Lo Tian Sion and his team unveil their mooncake curations themed Orient Lustre. The Orient Lustre series blends classics […]
We received a pleasant surprise recently when a dear acquaintance delivered a box of mooncakes for my mooncake crazy boys. We are really blessed to be surrounded by such generous and lovely people. We were at the playground opposite our house when we got these mooncakes so it was just nice to have a mooncake picnic. Conveniently packed with a knife and four little forks (in the box), these mooncakes are good to eat anytime, anywhere. […]

During the full moon on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the Chinese calendar, we will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival. This year, it falls on Wednesday, 4th October 2017. My family and I were very much privileged to be invited to have a Full Moon Feast with Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s new Executive Chinese Chef, Chef Lim Chee Woi. Priced at RM238 per person, we know we are in for a luxurious […]
The Mid-Autumn festival is fast approaching. Being in the Klang Valley, I see mooncakes everywhere. Walk into any shopping malls and you’ll see mooncakes being on sale in full force. Drop by the lobby of any hotels and you’ll get to purchase your favourite mooncakes too but the scenario is totally different out of the Klang Valley. I was in Melaka recently and went to check out several hotels to buy mooncakes as we needed […]
When is Mid-Autumn Festival? I heard it is around the corner so we brought the kids lantern shopping today. They don’t sell traditional paper lantern anymore do they? The first lantern that Ayden chose is the type that has sound and wheels and can move on land but I told the Daddy to get them something more ‘traditional’ as in a lantern that will only light up without those annoying sound and movement. The Daddy […]
During the Mid Autumn Festival last year, I was trapped at home doing my confinement as I just delivered Ayden then. I ranted a lot on Facebook on me missing out on all those mooncake makan-makan with friends that some of my caring friends took the initiative to send some to my house. I was really happy receiving all those goodies then. Today, I received a box of Gartien Pineapple Cakes from a friend in Penang. He remembered people […]
When will we be celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival this year? With Ramadhan over and people slowly making their way back into the city after their Hari Raya break, we found out that it is that time of the year again where the Chinese community around the world celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival or most of us would deliciously remember it as Mooncake savouring time. A couple of evenings ago, Darling, Ethan and I dined at The […]
I was in 1 Utama today (yeah.. AGAIN!) and saw these cute little ‘umbrellas/mushrooms’. Cute and colourful ‘umbrellas’ Ethan exclaimed, “SO CUTE!” to which I totally agreed! I see cute and colourful umbrellas all over! Ethan started ‘photographing’ the decor immediately :D Cute bunnies in bowls with chopsticks I have to say this is the cutest Mid Autumn decor I’ve ever seen! Adorable cheeky looking bunnies in bowls with chopsticks ready to be eaten? :P […]
