Mooncake (and stuffs) from Singapore

It was the Mooncake festival last weekend. We didn't celebrate it at all here.

Firstly, i'm never into all these traditional/cultural events. Furthermore, i dont like mooncakes at all... but it is MUCH appreciated that visitors from Singapore actually took the effort to bring this to us, along with a packet of dried shrimps and ikan bilis.

You dont know how difficult it is to get this kind of stuffs here.

Mooncakes? Sharon and I saw a small variety of them at the Asian supermarket, with very limited variety in terms of versions. I believed i saw only the standard lotus paste, and one with a single yolk in it.

A box of four (of those with a single yolk) is about 28 USD including tax.

Expensive right?

Again.. thanks so much for the mooncake,

Ikan Bilis
the ikan bilis, and

Dried Shrimps
the shrimps!

True True, it is so hard to get on the local stuffs when you are in another country. I am in south africa and the chinese supermarket do not have ikan billis and dried shrimps which i need it desperately for my cooking!
