(Event) (NEW Launched Mooncakes) A Healthy Mid-Autumn Festival for Your Loved Ones, by BMS Organics

Hello lovelies.

Maybe you will find it a little boring coz these few weeks I have been focusing alot on Beauty category. So for a few posts this month I will focus on the Lifestyle category.

15th August 2017 marks the launch of the all NEW mooncakes by BMS Organics.

This is the outlet in MyTown Shopping Mall.

1. Pure Lotus with Yolk (Ovo Vegetarian) - The most basic and most familiar for me. I love savory egg yolk. The main point is, it is the healthier version compared to the traditional mooncakes, comprising of less fat and sugar. Yet, it is still smooth and I love it!
2. Japanese Tangerine (Vegan) - It is made of a whole Yilan tangerine instead of the traditional egg yolk, giving you that surprise to your tastebuds! The honey-soaked lime blends perfectly with BMS Organics' very own Japanese-styled red bean paste. I find it a pleasant surprise tho I may need some time to get use to it.
3. Mixed Nuts Delight (Vegan) - Nutritional values are multiplied as the traditional nuts are substituted with superfoods (eg. white sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, tangerine, walnuts and almonds), which promote digestive and respiratory health. This is definitely a good buy for the elderly as the nuts are not super hard and makes chewing a breeze.
4. Matcha Red Bean (Vegan) - They green shade comes from the use of natural, high grade green tea powder. Red beans are handpicked from Wandan Town, Taiwan. Two of these elements will surprise you especially if you are a MATCHA LOVER! I love love this combination the most!
5. Purple Chinese Yam Mooncake (Vegan) - It is a pretty shade and contains high nutrients. It has this tinge of sweetness, silky texture and unique yam  taste to your tastebuds. My friends love this!!
6. Red Bean Walnut (Vegan) - This stands out compared to the ones in market is that the crust is baked with natural red yeast rice with chunky red bean bits & crunchy walnut! I think my mom will like this! ^^

1. Red Bean with Tangerine Pastry (Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian) - It is a combination of Wagashi-standard red bean paste and the flavorful tangerine from Yilan, Taiwan. A surprisingly sour-sweet taste that will linger for some time and make you want more! My friend love this!
2. Taro Pastry (Lacto Vegetarian) - This is a fiber-rich pastry made with the finest yam sourced from Dajia District, Taiwan. The spiral crust and color is just too pretty! I LOVE this too for its crusty pastry, smooth and creamy yam filling! <3 A great feast to your tastebuds and eyes!

You can get more of the individually packaged traditional mooncakes if you love it more!

A Lil' History of Mid-Autumn Festival:

Mid-Autumn festival (中秋节 , Zhōngqiū jié) is one of the most important festival and symbolizes reunion. It falls exactly on the 15th of the 8th Chinese lunar month every year, when the moon is fullest & brightest. ^^ Since the Song Dynasty (1127 - 1279 A.D.), exchanging moon cakes as gifts were widely practiced. We still do it today OMG! I remember always being excited for the day! ^^ Eating moon cakes at the porch with my family and relatives while taking in the fullest and brightest moon light scene.


Most Accepted Legend of Mid-Autumn Festival:

Chang Er on the Moon. According to the folklore, a man named Hou Yi shot down 9 out of 10 Sun to save humanity. He is appraised by many from near and far of his skill. Later on he tied the knot with Chang Er who is kind and beautiful.

One fine day, Hou Yi was rewarded an elixir by WangMu (Queen of Heaven) which will turn him a god. He did not drink it, instead asked Chang Er to keep it. Peng Meng (a guy who learnt of his talent when he shot 9 suns down) saw it and forced Chang Er to give it to him when Hou Yi went hunting. Chang Er had no choice but to drink it and sacrificed herself to be apart from her husband FOREVER.

Chang Er's love for her husband drew her to the moon, which is the nearest place to the Earth from the Moon.

When Hou Yi returned and heard what had happened, he was devastated. He shouted for Chang Er and noticed a figure of his wife at the moon. Since then, he and the many villagers sacrificed food Chang Er likes in return for good luck & peace.
