MXT's Special Mooncakes

A mooncake is a special kind of pastry filled with red bean or lotus seed paste. It may also contain salted yolk or nuts. This is usually given to family and friends during the Mooncake Festival which is celebrated by the Chinese community around the world during the eight lunar month (in Chinese calendar) which usually falls during September or October.

And because its Mooncake Festival, I'd like to share these yummy mooncake finds from MXT (Maxim's Tea House).


These mooncakes comes in a special tin box and comes in four flavors: monggo, monggo with yolk, lotus, and lotus with yolk. Personally, I love the lotus mooncake, with or without the yolk.

Mooncakes are usually given to maintain harmony and unity among family and friends. Hence, it is nice to give mooncakes.


And thru the years, the tradition of giving mooncake continues but it has also evolved into a gastronomic delight. The flavors also evolved too-- from red bean and lotus paste, MXT now offers ube, chocolate, and egg custard flavor.


The ones on the photo below are mini-mooncakes. I love the ube and the chocolate. So if you're giving me one, you already know what flavors I like *hint* *hint*  :)


The Deluxe Gift Set (4 large mooncakes) costs 490 as well as the Petite (mini-mooncakes, 8 pcs).




You can get these mooncakes from MXT branches around Metro Manila: Onpin, SM Sta Mesa, SM Fairview, SM Sucat, SM North EDSA

  1. Can't wait to try MXT's ube and chocolate mooncakes! I've had MXT mooncakes before and they are the best hands down.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow! 

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
