Mooncakes mini galore at Nex, Seranggoon Central
Takashimaya at Ngee Ann City, Orchard, used to be THE place to go to for a snapshot of the the best and latest mooncakes in town. But in recent years, the same retailers including hotels have found their way to heartland malls as well. There seems to be a similar fair, albeit on a smaller scale at most malls across the island. I visited the one at Nex mall recently and is intrigued by the hive and hype there. Shown above are the many colourful and beautiful packaging this year. I personally feel that Shangri-la Hotel has the most beautiful packaging this year of an embroidered handbag.

My Moonies 2014 -
Thousand layer spiral mooncakes or flaky Teochew mooncakes.
I used to make these with only yam fillings but decided to go colourful this year. The red/pink ones have red bean paste filling; the green ones have jade lotus (pandan) paste with walnuts and salted egg yolk; the purple ones have yam paste filling with salted egg yolk and the orange/yellow ones have mung bean paste filling.
The yam and mung bean pastes are home-cooked.
