Mooncake Festival

The Mooncake Festival, also known as Mid-Autumn Festival, falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month which is 6th Oct this year.

And to celebrate this festive season with the gluttonous Singaporeans, Ngee Ann City has organised a Takashimaya Mid-Autumn Festival held in Takashimaya Square from 10am to 9.30pm daily, where the most exquisite treats of delicious premium mooncakes awaits you. From demonstration on the making of snow skin mooncakes,

to the alluring twelve animals of Chinese Zodiac crafted by the chefs,

to the cute mooncakes shaped as piggies for the kids, the whole Square is buzzing with activities.

Besides the normal mooncakes, you will also have the chance to see the old-school traditional ones that are deep fried, giving it a flaky skin.

Interestingly, one thing I realise nowadays is, there are many weird fillings for mooncakes, including rum and raisin, cheese, yum, and even one stall selling snow skin mooncakes with Baileys fillings.

Besides the green tea filling which I truly love (Check out the ones from Orchard Hotel – Hua Ting!!!),

the other flavour I was checking out was the durian flavoured mooncakes by Goodwood Park Hotel – it was however disappointing and not as great as their famous Durian Puffs

– nonetheless head over to the stall of “Four Seasons Durian” and you would be overwhelmed that the filling they used for their durian mooncake is PURE D24 Durian flesh!!!
