It’s that time of the year again when everyone start indulging in mooncakes of all sorts !! It’s a once a yearly affair, hence every restaurant is gearing up in a bid to outbeat the rest in the most creative and premium mooncakes to outshine each other. But to me, the packaging of the mooncakes play an utmost importance too, if not more critical than the mooncakes itself. Why is this so ? Because I realised more often than not, most of us generally do not consume a lot of mooncakes than we thought we would. Just like how when the mooncakes are brought and shared amongst colleagues in the office, each of us would generally partake a slice of it with the most of them being shared instead.
Hence, I believe to many of us, mooncakes are generally gifts thoughts for the festive. In particularly to the old folks in the families and in the corporate world, amongst the business partners and clients. As a form of respect to the elder generation and as a form of relationship building in the corporate undertaking.
In view of such, the packaging of the mooncakes plays a pretty utmost role in the undertakings of the above mentioned. So come this festive, the award winning Hua Ting Restaurant from Orchard Hotel unveils their most premium packaging to date with a specially-designed leatherette gift box which doubles up as a meeting document bag. Dressed in an auspicious resplendent red with artful Oriental illustrations feature on its exterior and a tiffany-green zipper lend an understated elegance to its beauty and serves up as the most presentable and respected gift idea.
The intriguing snowskin variations this year’s feature the crowning jewel which is the all new Mini Cempedek with Mung Beans 绿豆菠萝蜜, on top of their artisanal creations with Green Tea Twist with Yolk 彩云蛋黄 , Blueberry with Vintage Hua Diao Wine (Low Sugar) 低糖迷你陈年花雕蓝莓 and White Lotus Paste with Champagne Ganache 白莲蓉香槟.
