Knowing my near-obsessive love for salted duck egg, Mrs. Chan recently tasked Mr. Chan with procuring some moon-cakes with said artery clogging, IBS-inducing ingredient in it, whilst he was killing time on a business trip with food-shopping (being the true blue foodie he is, Mr. Chan enjoys hours spent on browsing and purchasing edibles LOL).
So upon his arrival back in Kuching, I got a single-yolk lotus paste moon-cake, a double-yolk, and something a friend of his gifted him with:
Best translated as "egg yolk flaky pastry"... and six of them at that! Excitedly, I calculated that including the moon-cakes he'd gotten me, I had 1 + 2 + 6 = 9 egg yolks at my disposal to slowly savour. What a haul!
And then I decided to slice one into half for a better view of its contents, and was sorely disappointed to find only HALF an egg yolk in it...
So now it's 1 + 2 + (0.5 x 6) = 6 egg yolks only. Hrmmph. Anyway, I initially thought the pastry was filled with white bean paste but I might be mistaken after all, on inspecting the label:
Might just be the sweet "butter" filling we used to get in the butter buns we used to have in our childhood. Oh and lookie lookie, it's from Sarikei!
Ah well, won't say it was all that awesome-tasting, but guess it was a little bite of nostalgia. I remember having this years and years ago, back when it had more yolk in the middle haha.
As a result of that egg-yolk binge, however, I've been pretty much confined to warming my porcelain throne for the past couple of days.
Way to go, Irene!
