Peony Jade - Mid Autumn Festival Mooncakes

The Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋节 is held on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. This day is also known as the Moon Festival as the moon is the roundest among any day in the year. It falls on the 27 September 2015 this year which is a Sunday. As it's not a public holiday for this festival in Singapore, it happened on the right day that everyone can celebrate this festival with their family and friends for 1 full day.

Mooncake 月饼 is traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival and each year, different bakery and restaurants in Singapore will roll out different kinds of Mooncakes estimated 1 to 2 month ahead in celebration of this festival. 

This year, beside Peony Jade Restaurant's well known Award Winning Teochew Orh Ni Mooncake, they had also launched a few new Fruity Snowskin Flavours which I will introduce shortly.

My first impression when I got this is "I love the boxes". Beautiful colour combination, traditional design yet not out of fashion. 

 Introducing Peony Jade's Legendary "Flaky-Teochew Yam (Orh Ni) Mooncake with Single Egg Yolk". My All Time Favourite! Freshly Baked Daily to ensure the finest quality, puffy flaky skin with creamy and rich yam filling.   
 ($38.50 nett for 2 pieces, $67.00 nett for 4 pieces)

How can we forget their Traditional "Low Sugar Baked Mooncake with Premium Mother of Pearl White Lotus Paste & Single Yolk" Low sugar? Yes, I guess many feedback that traditional Mooncakes are very sweet, that could be the reason why this is made with low sugar to cater for customers who doesn't take too sweet. 
($37.00 net for 2 pieces, $66 nett for 4 pieces)
