While waiting for Lloyd to finish work yesterday, I went to Takashimaya and saw that there's an event to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. They're selling mooncakes and other traditional confectioneries.
I'm not Chinese so I'm not giving away mooncakes, plus it's too expensive to give them away (stingy!). So I looked around to buy just one mooncake for myself since Lloyd's not fond of mooncake.
While walking around the various stores, I saw one that really caught my attention... chocolate mooncakes! chocoelf was selling chocolate mooncakes. I tried a piece and I like it and the first thing that popped into my head is that Lloyd will like it because he loves chocolates. Plus they used dark chocolate, which is better! So I bought 4 pieces (smallest box they have).
We were not able to try it when we got home because it was already late. So earlier after lunch, I finally opened it. They look so cute and pretty, I didn't want to slice it at first! Eventually I did...
Each mooncake is only one inch in length and width, and around half an inch thick.
The dark chocolate was yummy! The lotus paste inside is also yummy! Unfortunately Lloyd didn't like it...
Oh well, at least I tried to make him eat mooncake. Now I can have them all to myself. hahaha!
