Keep traditions or break them? - Ah, i will not go into this argument but for mooncakes - variety is indeed the spice of life. How many traditional single yolk or double yolk mooncakes with the traditional brown oven-baked skin can you eat? But transform that into different flavours and you could be eating the entire night or afternoon high teas even. In small portions, lah! We have wine-pairing and coffee-tasting. Has anyone invented mooncake tasting high tea yet?

The fruits are popular fruits in this part of the world. Mangoes, strawberries, papayas, bananas and mangosteens.
