Post-Makan Notes:

I finally got to try the mooncakes from Wah Lok.  I ordered the rum & raisin ones coz those are my favourites but I felt cheated.  Why? Coz I thought the rum & raisin ones meant that the lotus paste would be rum & raisin flavoured instead of the usual paste.  Instead, what I got was a small rum & raisin chocolate inside a normal snow skin mooncake with the usual lotus paste.

Sexy Strawberry

Vibrant freshness unfolds with our Mini Snow-Skin Strawberry & Dark Chocolate Mooncake NEW!, which will make its luscious debut this mid-Autumn. Indulge over its sweet, aromatic and juicy lure, enrobed in the richness of silky dark chocolate. Within this gem is pure strawberry heaven swirled in Swiss chocolate and luxuriously sprinkled with fragrant crushed almonds, wrapped within a core of creamy chocolate shell. 

Going Nutty for Nuts

This is also the season where healthy cuisine and traditional influence deliriously intertwine. Mooncake and nut lovers will effortlessly go nuts with our vegetarian Baked Mooncake with Roasted Pine Nuts in White Lotus Paste NEW!. The subtle sweetness and texture of the white lotus paste blends perfectly with the mild, nutty flavour of roasted pine, giving every bite its delicious and healthy punch. In addition, pine nuts are rich in antioxidants and essential vitamins, providing a good source of dietary fibre whilst boosting the immune system.

Fairmont’s commitment to healthy living is best exemplified by our Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts NEW!, blending wholesome offerings with time-honoured tradition. With no added preservatives or artificial flavouring, this mooncake is the crème de la crème choice amongst nut connoisseurs. Its rich consistency and exotic taste add a unique dimension to this morsel filled with tasty macadamia, walnut, almond, melon and sesame seeds. A great source of vitamin E courtesy of the copious amount of nuts, this baked delight boasts powerful antioxidants with cancer fighting qualities, and is high in magnesium and phosphorus, which is excellent for bones and teeth.

This unparalleled ensemble of meticulously handcrafted snow-skin and baked mooncakes will be inspiringly encased within an elegant collector’s edition mooncake box that promises to charm and captivate women and men alike, continuously showcasing the alluring patterns and svelte curves of the goddess-like female form, exuding an aura of femininity and mystique.
