Mid-Autumn Festival and Sweet Gifts

Yay! Last Thursday was Mid-Autumn festival a.k.a mooncakes festival

 Guess, what I received? Special handmade and home made moon cakes from Anay and Letchumi!

See this!  Skin so thin and the paste was so soft. Would you believe that this is made by a first timer? Such big yolk.

Papa loves it very much. Much nicer than those store bought. Not that sweet too. Just nice.

Anay claimed that he help Letchumi to make the paste. Betul ka? Thank you again for the mooncakes .

 Guess  what is this? 

 It's called Pua Kumbu.

According to wikipedia

"Pua Kumbu is a traditional patterned multicolored ceremonial cotton cloth used by the Iban, made and used in Sarawak, Malaysia. Pua kumbu are woven by Dayak women and are considered to be sacred objects. They are used for lifecycle rituals and special events including the birth of a child, coming of age celebrations, receipt of an important item to a longhouse, and to screen a corpse that is being laid out in a longhouse prior to burial.

Beside Pua Kumbu, there are also Pua Sungkit and Pua Karap."
 
Can you guess who sent it? It's from Uncle Arthur. Gosh! it must have cost a bomb. Thank you very much Uncle Arthur. Ang ang sui sui.


 Hehehe......on Mid-Autumn Festival night, I get to play with Tanglung(lantern) and candles.



Mamarazzi said i look like Minions here.


papa said i look like Donald Duck.


So how was your "mooncake festival"?

  6. yes, those mooncakes look very delicious indeed, better than those sold outside.. the skin is thin, the lotus paste is packed, and more importantly fresh and moist enough, and i guess it's also not as sweet and as oily and as jelak as those commercial ones right??

  11. Letchumy used to help her mother to make moon cakes when she was a small kid. Of course she chose her own recipe this time as she didn't want to use preservatives. We learnt a lot from this experience on how the ancient Chinese folks ate them in China! They had no fridge and the weather was cold & dry at this Mid Autumn, so they never used preservatives in this recipe she found. Here our weather is so hot & humid and fungus will grow very fast.
