Public Holiday! heh..heh.. Especially when it falls on a work day or better still on a Sunday or Monday. Today is Malaysia day and yes, it's great when it falls on a Friday too!
And yesterday was the mid-autumn festival. In days of old when I was very young, I looked forwards to carrying a lantern in the neighborhood together with my cousins and other kids. That was great fun!
But now, mid-autumn festival is just another day. But hey, I needed some cheering up. I was feeling listless at the office and time seemed to stand still.
So. I decided to drop by TK after depositing a cheque at the bank.
Heh..heh... A little present for myself. Eh, nobody gave me any mooncakes, ok?
It was after all mid-autumn festival and I should at least have a slice of mooncake. There were a few people at the bakery buying mooncakes too.
I bought one Golden Emerald with Yolk and a Shanghai Mooncake to share with my partner.
Pandan flavor is my favorite. When I was a kid, the only filling available was red bean. There was no such thing as variety then.
Mmmm...Shanghai Mooncake. I remember someone gave me one a long time ago and it had flaky skin like puff pastry. It was awesome. I wasn't sure if this one was the same.
You don't eat a mooncake by biting into it although I was tempted to do so. I was hungry you see. So I did the conventional thing and sliced it into dainty segments.
I don't think this Shanghai Mooncake has flaky skin.
I love this! Pandan flavor with salted egg yolk. Yummy! Yummy! Better still if they had mung bean paste inside.
Bah! No flaky skin. It's more like biscuit but this was also good. It had a hint of vanilla. Don't know if my nose was playing tricks on me.
My ration. Must not overindulge. Must save some for my partner.
I had my mooncakes with a mug of hot black coffee. No sugar. The mooncakes were not too sweet, just nice.
So that was my dinner yesterday evening. A quiet one with no fanfare. No lanterns.
Then it was off for an early night. I was feeling damn good. Because tomorrow (today) is a holiday! And I want to mop the floor. Hah..hah....
