吃月饼..有传统的, 上海的, 冰皮的, 水晶的, 好吃,好吃...大家都会问..."会很甜吗? 我很怕太甜."
Mid Autumn is around the corner, it time to celebrate mooncake festival. You can see all types of mooncakes selling in the market.
Mooncakes have all kind of variety..like traditonal mooncake, shanghai mooncake, snowny mooncake, crystal mooncake..haha all kind of it. Mooncakes are delicious but there is always a question ask..'are these mooncake low sugar, I don't like it too sweet?' DIY your own mooncake, you can add sugar at your own preferance...:)
My will kids love to carry their lantern on mooncake festival. I guess all kids love to do that and me I like to make mooncake on this day.

4) 在把燕菜倒满摸子. 放入冰箱等水晶月饼凝结.
