Moon Cakes or Packaging?

Hungry Ghost month has come to the end, this means we (the chinese) will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival soon. Mid- Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day on the 8th month of the lunar calendar, we will be celebrating the festival on the 14th of September on Gregorian Calendar.

Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, eat moon cakes and carrying bright lit lantern. Some family even burn incense in reverence to deities like Chang'e.

As for my family, we don celebrate at all. Especially all of us had grown up, and we don play lanterns anymore. As for moon cakes eating, we had start eating it before the day. (We had started eating moon cakes now). Talking about moon cakes, the packaging now is very nice, but those with nice packaging usually are expensive. The moon cakes from the pictures above are from Hotel Equatorial. The one with fork and knife are gifts from my sister's company, they cost around RM 100 +++. As for the mini ones, my sis bought it as a gift to her friends...that cost Rm38 for each.

I was wondering, if you buy moon cakes, you buy it for the taste of the moon cakes or the nice packaging. Personally, for me i like the packaging more than the moon cakes... How about you?
