When purchasing 4 pieces of mooncakes, we get a free pretty and classy box. The Gold and Blossom boxes are in the group of Floral Design. They have intricate silk embroidery with metallic foil. The “S” Design includes Mandarin and Ruby. They are of velvet material with metallic hot stamping foil.
The hotel managers and marketing personnels are happily and proudly posting with their mooncakes.
Okay, it’s mooncake tasting session! We are glad that we are served with hot tea while enjoying the mooncakes.
They all look so delicious!
We can’t really finish all at one time.
Overall, the mooncakes of Jen Hotel are less sweet, which is good for health and suit the taste bud of people nowadays, except for the White Lotus Mooncakes and the Golden Ochre Swirl. However, the Golden Ochre Swirl is quite special with strong orange flavour. Anyway, the White Lotus goes well with the egg yolk. The Green Tea Mooncake and the Wholesome Chocolate Macadamia Walnut are not bad. The Full Moon Grandeur is one of my favourite as I love pastry. It has a strong butter fragrance that is totally different from traditional taste of mooncake. Last but not least, the most unforgettable flavour is the Lunar Delight. The durian flavour is so nice with its strong taste. One piece is not enough. You will want to get more.
Lantern Making Workshop
It is an excited event. The frame of the lantern is basically well prepared for us. All we need to do is to decorate and paint the butterflies. The function room of the hotel is suddenly becomes the garden with lots of pretty butterflies.
My mom who loves arts is quite enjoying herself by putting all the creative idea on her masterpiece.
Here we are, proudly presenting our butterflies lanterns. It is really an unforgettable experience for all of us in the room. We are given a small box of door gift of mooncake each before we go back. What a happy day!
Thanks Ellie for the invitations. We enjoy ourself very much!
