Mooncakes: I like them original

As Mooncake Festival will be here in just two days' time, shopping centres are abuzz with stalls selling mooncakes and people patronizing these stalls to buy mooncakes for themselves, friends and relatives.

Mooncakes are not cheap in general. A box of 4 lotus paste mooncakes can cost an average of $50. However mooncakes with such price tags  are associated with premium hotel brands. There are still very nice mooncakes selling at $34 for 4 per box.

I prefer original-flavour mooncakes. I do not like mooncakes which veer away from tradition. For example, if I were to eat a durian mooncake, I may as well buy and eat a durian.
