Mooncakes Gift Sets & Weddings.

Even though the Mooncake or Lantern festival is over), I want to share this post with you. We used to buy mooncakes for the family. Then as the years go by, I only buy the mooncakes with multi-nuts for my own consumption. After that I stopped buying mooncakes. The same for this year, I didn't buy any mooncake but I was blessed with 2 mooncakes gift sets.
 A lady friend came to my house bearing this pretty box.
 Inside were 2 flaky skin mooncakes.
 She knows I love to eat yam/taro, so she ordered these mooncakes with yam paste filling for me. One mooncake without salted egg yolk. The other one has a salted egg yolk but I forgot to snap a photo to show.
 I also received another gift set from my neighbour. They are jelly mooncakes.
 One has yam paste filling and the green one has longan fruit filling. Since hubby is not interested in these mooncakes, I enjoyed them all. Thanks to my friend and neighbour for their yummy mooncake gifts.

This month, I attended 2 church weddings. I didn't take any photo for the first wedding but I have some to show for the second wedding. Since I didn't ask permission, I won't be showing close up photos of the married couple here.
I love church weddings.

 Pretty decorations.

"show kindness to my master Abraham and

help me to accomplish the purpose of my journey."
