Saw this amazing amazing box of Mooncakes in The Straits Times newspaper on Sunday and decided to actually run out and get them! Didn't keep my hopes up as its not the lunar 8th month yet. I made my way to the restaurant briskly and lo & behold, they had them! I was ecstatic! Yeap, I'm definitely, officially a bagaholic, so badly that I'm after anything that looks like a purse! I'm never much for mooncakes but this one really struck a chord with me! Doesn't it look so much like the Vuitton Epi Speedy purse in red?
Even though its cardboard, its got quite a weight on it and its covered with this textured faux leather that actually looks and feels amazing! Handles & trimmings are in red faux leather as well. The quality is quite unexpected for such a frivolous purpose. And, the handmade white lotus paste mooncakes inside are really good too! The yolk is fresh & the paste is not too sweet for my taste. Pretty good stuff!
This amazing box bag will be good for use long after the mooncakes have been devoured! :+)
I could not find a direct link to the restaurant information, but this box is from Xin Cuisine at Holiday Inn Singapore. I imagine you'll need to go quick!

SO, the BIG, huge, ginormous news I've totally FORGOTTEN! Our FOURTH year anniversary SALE! Its ridiculous but I've been so bogged down with school (last semester, YAAAAY!) and restocking the shop & getting supplies, I've actually forgotten we've been hanging around for 4 years! Laughable, I know!

Its a terrible cliche, but its true that time has become quite precious to me these days. It seems to be slipping away faster than running water and the more I try to hold onto to it, the more it escapes my clutches. I fear I'm not getting enough done yet I wanna run away from everything. Its definitely a strange tug-of-war.
My sincere apologies for the lack of updates in these 3 months. Apart from trying to spend time with my other half in Sydney who was trying to complete his Phd thesis (its completed btw), & coming back to the heat & school responsibilities & restocking the shop, I've hardly had time to breathe much. Its hard to believe but more than half the year has gone by. I'm still amazed and so humbled that everyone's still so supportive of florspace and the stuff we make!
Thank you & HUGs!
