Don’t know how…

I really don’t know how to thank Anthony, the co-owner, and everyone at Nica Plus for this awesome gift…

…that they have given me for the Mooncake Festival this year, their gorgeous, one of a kind gelato mooncakes…

They gave me a box last year and once again, those thoughtful and generous people have done it again – I was out, picking my girl up from work when somebody delivered it to the house with this personalised note inside…

Honestly, I really don’t know how I can ever thank them enough.

The Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival falls on the 10th of September this year. The festival is celebrated every 15th of the Eight Month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. We have not planned yet as to how we are going to celebrate the auspicious occasion but one thing’s for sure, I shall not be buying any of the traditional mooncakes from the shops to eat since I am on a low/no sugar diet and more often than not, they are extremely sweet so as to preserve them and keep them from going bad especially when they are out on the market months ahead of the festival.

As for these special gelato ones, I started off with this one…

…the yogurt with raspberry yolk…

…by cutting it into segments of one eighth each so we can enjoy eating it very very slowly, a little bit at a time to make sure there is no sugar rush.

This sounds like a very nice one, the cheese with mango disc…

…but it will have to wait its turn along with this one…

…that I’m sure my girl will love. I remember she enjoys Swiss chocolate a lot!

We’re not really crazy about durians but we would be looking forward to trying this one…

…as well. It is, after all, the king of fruits!!!

I guess this is a good time to drop by the shop to enjoy all these and the other gelato temptations and all their irresistible sweet delights. Who knows? Perhaps you may decide to grab a box or two yourself to give to loved ones as gifts – they certainly are a welcome change from the usual that one would get year in and year out.
