Mooncakes are back....

With the mooncake festival just less than a month away, most shopping malls have sprung into action in decorating the concourse area while selling various brands of mooncakes and all sorts of colorful lanterns.
Meanwhile i have been eating a few pieces of mooncakes already, complimentary from Genting😁
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Went to the Food Merchant @ Pavilion BJ on last month and already saw this on display - Wing Wah mooncakes from HK!
This box has only a piece of mooncake inside (single individual packing)
and the price is RM51 each! *faint
I remembered that 6 years ago i bought this same mooncake (a box of 4) for HKD200 at the HK airport. So, each piece would costs HKD50 (around RM30) during then.
Either that our currency has shrunk so much or the tax is really skyrocket high. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bought this unagi temaki from Empire Sushi at only RM4.50
Value for money coz usually a temaki like this would be pricey at sushi restaurant. Will buy this again whenever i see it.

Trying out the chicken burger....
Are u able to guess which fast food chain is this?
I had the spicy sauce chicken burger, which i believe is available for a limited time only.
Tastes ok la....like McD spicy McChicken, but in bigger size & overflowing sauce.

Nowadays mooncakes are getting expensive. Even the local one piece costs RM15 each.

As for the chicken burger, I guess it's from Jollibee

Last Sunday my partner and I went to buy mooncakes. They have 10% discount for Aeon members and can get further RM10.00 if purchase the voucher.

That Jollibee logo mascot gave the answer away d. This year I think I won't get to taste any moon cakes because I am stopping myself from buying any mooncakes

Now the prices of most items have gone up by a lot. So no surprise that the mooncakes from hk are so expensive now. Good to see that you are eating well and enjoying life. Carpe diem! 😊
