MOONCAKES PACKAGING - TUNG LOK

I just thought the packaging for mooncakes this year from Tung Luk (group of restaurants) is SO pretty! Even saved a clipping of their adverts for future reference =) There was a feature on mooncake packaging (for the upcoming Mid-autumn Festival/ Mooncake Festival) in the papers today as well. I collect tin boxes so if there's any chance I can get my hands on one of these (the yellow one especially) it'll be awesome. I recall in the previous years Tung Lok used old-school Shanghainese ladies painting, but this time they got a gorgeous real model!

Visit their site here: http://www.tunglok.com/

Unfortunately I don't like mooncakes so the other festival pastry option is the 'Pig in Basket' biscuit (Zhu Long/ Zhu Zai Bing) which are made from the same dough as the skin of the mooncakes. They are totally cute & yummy! Will blog about that another day =)

I love looking at packaging.. sometimes I go to the luxury department stores to browse the actual packaging rather then product!

OK call me dumb...but I don't even know what a moon cake is (moon pie, I could tell you about!). I agree though, the packaging is so pretty!
