The Mid-Autumn Festival is a Chinese festival when people get to eat mooncakes as part of the festivities. The mooncakes are traditionally baked with lotus seed paste or red bean paste filling and may contain salted egg yolks. Interestingly, I found out that the sharing of mooncakes among family members signify the unity of families.

Apart from the traditional ones, there are those with different flavours and exotic variations!

I have heard so much about Goodwood Park Hotel’s famous durian snowskin mooncakes but only had my first taste recently when a colleague bought it. Only 1000 boxes are available each year for this durian combo (D88, Red Prawn, ‘Mao Shan Wang’ and Butter).

Being a fan of the king of the fruits, I must say that the amount of durian flesh was really generous and fresh. The skin was soft and not sticky. But by the fourth slice, I was quite full and some hot green tea was required! While the price is a deterrence to some, do give it a try if you have the chance to!
