YUE Mooncake Gift Set by The Westin Kuala Lumpur

We were well-impressed with The Westin Kuala Lumpur's mooncake box last year (we got to grow our own little terrarium garden), and wondered how they were gonna top it this year. Yet again we were wowed - this time with a beautifully designed floral mooncake box which also doubles up as a speaker. Each box is embedded with built-in Bluetooth speakers and is easy to operate - simply enable the Bluetooth connection on the speaker and connect using your smartphone and it's ready to use! BabySumoKids love playing their favorite tunes on the speaker so it's definitely a worthwhile addition to our home.




What about the mooncakes? The Westin KL is offering 7 types of traditional baked mooncakes as well as 1 snow skin mooncake. New this year are the Imperial Black, Five Sen5es Supreme Mixed Nuts and Mini Musang King durian. The Imperial Black gets its name from its charcoal skin and features ingredients such as dried longan and wolfberry - one of our favorites this year.

The Mixed Nuts mooncake gets an upgrade this year, and now features grilled chicken meat, chicken floss and dried scallops, giving it a more savoury finish. This is especially great for those who prefer something less sweet. Otherwise, they also offer a few varieties of low sugar mooncakes with white lotus paste.




This is the first time The Westin KL is offering a snowskin mooncake, with the King of Fruits taking the spotlight. Best eaten cold, this was creamy, rich and aromatic.

Other flavours on offer are Pandan Lotus, Pearl of Prosperity and Pure Red Bean Paste.

The YUE Mooncake Gift Set is priced at RM168 (for 4 traditional baked mooncakes) or RM240 (for 4 snow skin Musang King mooncakes). The previous BLOOM Mooncake Gift Set (with DIY terrarium) is also available at RM138 (for 4 traditional baked mooncakes) or RM210 (for 4 snow skin Musang King mooncakes).
