The Making of Snowskin Mooncake

It's Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow, just few days after Hari Raya Haji. Some of my friends took leave since Wednesday and back to KL on Sunday, such a long holiday. It is hazy in KL these few days due to forest fire in Indonesia. I choose to stay home than going outside as I really feel teary and sick with the smoke. After all, I wanna share some experience of making snowskin mooncake. Any snowskin mooncake lover here? I am :D

 
You just need a few tools and ingredients such as snowskin mooncake mix flour, paste and mooncake mold.

 

125ml of cold ice water 

 

 

Mix the flour with the ice cold water 

 

Mix all at slow speed until it becomes dough like above. Then close it with wet cloth as instructed in the label.

  

There are variety of choice in the market for the paste like cranberry, tiramisu, chocolate, red bean paste,green tea and etc.All are sweet.

 

1kg packet of paste can make approximately 13 fillings for the standard size of mooncake.


Wrap the paste with the dough previously made

  

After fully wrap, put into the mold

 

Push it out...or you might need to apply some rice flour to prevent it sticks inside. The mold costs around RM17 only.

 

Ok done. It is simple and easy.  Put into the fridge to let it cool and it is ready to be served then. Have a wonderful weekend everyone :D 中秋节快乐!

D’King Vegetarian Snow Skin Musang King Durian Mooncakes

Mid-Autumn Festival  is approaching, have you bought any mooncake?  Bored of traditional baked mooncake with traditional flavour? Want something different? This year, D’King, a premium durian mooncake brand, introduces its vegetarian snow skin musang king durian mooncake, which are handmade and without addition of preservatives and artificial flavouring.  Instead, it is packed with the highest-grade Musang King durians sourced from Pahang.

 

It does not have luxury packaging. Nevertheless, it is the perfect gift for corporate clients and for the family this coming Mid-Autumn Festival. 

  
D'King snow skin mooncakes are packed in styrofoam box containing ice gels for preservation up to 10 hours.

 

“Unlike most mooncakes, which utilise processed filling, D’King mooncake is prepared with the actual durian flesh.  Once the durians arrive, we peel them and remove the flesh immediately to prepare the mooncake filling.  If we wait too long, the durians would break open on its own, and the aroma and taste would be lost,” shares Simon Chin, founder of D’King.  “Last year, our D24 mooncake was very well received, so this year, we decided to go for the most premium durian, which is the famous Musang King.  The Musang King was selected for the creamy and sticky flesh, with its strong scent and flavour that melts in your mouth.” 

 

“Another unique feature is its delicate snow skin that is light-textured yet uniquely bouncy.  The snow skin also has to be thin enough to emphasize the filling but strong enough to hold it all in.  The snow skin is made from a secret recipe which we have created after many rounds of trials.  Our pastry chef has nearly a decade of experience behind him and he is extremely particular about perfecting the taste,” added Chin.





D’King has been available by telephone order in Malaysia since 2012 and caters to a list of loyal customers.  The durian mooncake had really taken off in China and Hong Kong, and is a favourite amongst several celebrities there. During the official visit by President of China Xi Jinping to Putrajaya Residence in 2013, D’King was honoured to showcase products made from the King of Fruits, including the D’King durian mooncake.  D’King vegetarian snow skin musang king durian mooncake is sold in sets of eight 60g mooncakes, at RM128 per set, although there is currently a promotional price of RM98 per set.  Delivery is free if two or more sets are purchased.  To order, please whatsapp 012-664 8797 with the following format: <Name><Address><No of Sets><Delivery Date>

Eco Murai Rimba

The pristine Eco Murai Rimba is about 45 minuted away from Kuala Lumpur. The tranquil environment gives every visitor a peace of mind and make it as an ideal place for book reading, bird watching and even swimming at the waterfalls with a guaranteed temperature of 28 C all year round.  

 
There is no sign boards at the roadside. Thus, my friend got lost when finding this place at night.

 
Eco Murai Rimba is a bit hidden as one can not see it from outside. We need to walk through the gate as shown in picture above to the resort. It is actually located at the riverside.

 
The only landmark I able to find is the surau awam located next to the resort and visible to all road users.

 


 
Eco Murai Rimba is much more than lush tropical gardens, rain forest and wildlife.   

  
The only chalet in the lodge which can accommodate approximately for 4 persons is shown in the picture.The whitish paint at the chalet gives an exotic impression to every guest.
 
 
The only thing that I dislike is the shared bathroom outside the bedroom which might be inconvenient for me whenever I want to use toilet.

  
 I supposed to share my room with another girl but she did not come for the event and eventually I had the whole bed my own that night :D


 
 The dinner setting in the resort is kinda awesome and romantic!It is a perfect spot for couple dining under the starry night.

 

 

Candle light dinner, isn't that sound romantic?

 




 

Our wefie at the cottage of the resort. I put my cam at the speaker and set the timer, at last this is the outcome. This is quite random shot as I did not think much of asking anyone taking the pictures together but they are sporting enough to be in place when I said I wanna take a wefie :D



The second shot is as great as the first one :D I am happy to know all of you!

I sat with Sulie and her colleague which I met before during other trip. All of us having a jolly time with lots of laughter when the 3 guys joining us together.



The most happening costume of the night belongs to Azlina. Well, I really like her costume.  She said she imitated lynx. A round applause for her effort. Haha I don't even dress up myself that night ;P


Then we had some chats with each other about our life, love relationship and etc.

  

I never expected the RTM crews I met this time are that talented. They played the guitars and performed some song to us. A big thank you to them as they willing to duet with me when I asked to perform by everyone.



 


 
 

 
Woke up around 7am next morning, I laid on the bed a while before getting up to have my breakfast.

 
To reduce carbon footprint, the lodge adheres to the sustainability of the environment which I feel great for their effort while making money. This includes:
-organic toilet amenities used
-energy efficient light bulbs
-environmentally responsible cleaning products
-reduction of paper usage/use of email for all correspondence
-use of recycled paper/both sides
-sourcing of locally made art works and products in the gift store
-all garbage from the lodge including kitchen fats is sorted and recycled


How could I miss to have fun dipping myself in the water when I have a chance! The water is freezing cold that early morning. I wish the water getting warmer a bit so that I can stay longer there :D

  

Thanks to Tourism Malaysia Selangor for the invitation and  the prize. I won third place in an instagram photo contest :D
