Crystal mooncake

September 30, 2009

Today I went to pick up homemade Ping pi (Crystal mooncake) from a friend of mine, more commonly known in this blog as Soupy. Rob came up with that name, long story for another day.

The first time I tried it was back in 2005 when we were working together. Since then, I’ve been pestering her at almost a yearly basis for ping pi, because it was yummy! :D

Even comes in a pretty box

After many chants text messages of “ping pi ping pi ping pi ping pi”, she had no choice finally made some for me yesterday. Yes, I have no shame at all. :whistle:

This year she introduced me to something new, agar agar mooncake, which I have never tried before. I have to say they were pretty good!

I found it kinda ironic how much I enjoyed the agar agar mooncake, since I literally got burnt from making plain agar agar last week. Gee I wonder why the agar agar is pinkish? Hmmmmm :D

With red bean paste filling. YUM

=P~

Nom nom nom.

Thank you Siew Pin. ~muah~ :D

P/S While I was enjoying my mooncakes and taking pictures, guess who was watching by the door?
