Mooncakes - OP Style

I missed it this year as I was away on a job but weve just had the mid-Autumn festival, which is on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar year. A big part of the festival is the production and consumption of mooncakes. Depending on their contents, mooncakes can range from ok to meh to positively vile. However, these ones are like nothing Ive seen before. They were given to me by most awesome friends at OP Singapore and Im not sure if I should actually eat them

Thanks for sharing. Another reason to choose Panerai. They know how to look after customer.
Hope they taste as good as they look.

Marketing and customer relationships manager at Omega boutique in ION Orchard should get on this forum and learn from time to time.
Why no Mooncakes for "Speedmaster only one oryginal Moonwatch" owners and their clients?
Why ?
Thats why I choose OP...

Hopefully 'Mooncake' won't get confused with 'Spacecake' from Amsterdam...I am led to believe that is something quite different!

You truly have not lived until you've tried the Champagne Truffle snowskin mooncakes from Raffles Hotel...
