mooncaking revisited - 16 Jan 2010

slept the day away, in an attempt to drive fatigue away. late evening, he went over to aunt's place to help her fill up some forms, while wife prepared the stuff for mooncaking again.

returned home to help her with stirring of the mixtures, cooking, kneading until everything was ready to be molded.

this time round she not only measured each ingredient, she also measured each piece of skin and filling. they had yam and durian paste today, which was to be wrapped in a ball of matcha filling, before wrapping again with the skin. the final move, to put a stamp on each.
