Mooncakes and moonlight, yes please.
Singapore’s annual Mid-Autumn Festival only means one thing…it’s time to dig into the most scrumptious mooncakes across the city. This Chinese dessert has evolved over the years, and bakers have started to experiment with fillings and add their own creativity. From durian to chocolate and passionfruit fillings, to a luxurious first-ever Harry Potter-themed collection, Singapore has got it all. Here are five fantastic places to find exclusive mooncakes in Singapore this year.

If you want to watch the diet, Cookies4U by Scoopz are serving guilt-free low-sugar and indulging mooncakes at plenty of spots around the city.
