[Media Invite]

If you’re racing to find the perfect mooncake for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival but want something really different from the usual mooncakes in the market, you might just want to check out Madam Leng Mooncakes from PUTIEN. I thought I’ve seen every type of mooncake around, but this one takes the cake in terms of creativity! Actually this mooncake has been around for 18 years, but I only discovered it recently, because only small quantities are available!

The Golden Duck CNY Packaging

[Media Invite]

Have you ever been in a situation where you are invited to a pot-luck party and you have no idea what to bring? You may not know how to cook, or not want to go to the trouble of cooking, and yet those who can’t cook have already choped the desserts. What do you do then? How about bringing something to jazz up the food that people are going to bring?

Run to the rescue The Golden Duck Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. Toss these salty and crispy morsels onto just about any dish you can think off and voila, you’ve added in a bit of extra excitement. I mean admit it, there are precious few people around who DON’T like something crispy, so this is a potentially winning idea! Anyway, even if you don’t eventually use these crisps, they still make good gifts for the host so you don’t end up coming empty handed.

Check out the following dishes for ideas on how to utilise The Golden Duck’s Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. During this Chinese New Year period, you can also get limited edition packaging in an auspicious colour complete with a festive saying aka Auspicious Blessings printed on the packet, such as 步步高升 and 身体健康.

  • Expedia – Essential Food Guide to Asia

    [Sponsored Post]

    Want to go on a quick foodie getaway but no time to do any research on where to eat? Does the thought of having to sieve through and compile information from numerous websites put you off your holiday before you’ve even started? Don’t you wish for a trusted expert to tell you all the answers?

    Your prayers have been answered because Expedia has come up with the Essential Food Guide to Asia. Basically, it’s a website showcasing the best food that Asia has to offer, from street food all the way to Michelin-starred restaurants. Currently cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Taipei are featured. Simply choose the city, type of cuisine and type of eatery and a list of recommended eateries will pop out. If you click into each of the eateries, you will be able to see a brief description of the eatery, the average price, address, contact information, as well as its location via Google maps, all within the same page.

    I like that the whole interface is very simple and clean. Expedia’s guide would be useful for time-strapped travellers, as you can basically obtain recommendations on where to eat with just a few simple clicks. Also, if you’re travelling to a few Asian destinations, you’ll find the standardised information format very convenient to navigate.

    There currently aren’t that many eateries featured on the site, presumably to ensure that only deserving eateries get listed. With so many food guides out there, we don’t want yet another food directory. What we want is for someone to actually sieve through all the noise. Going down the path of “expert guide” is probably a smart move, if Expedia is able to deliver on its intentions.
