Long Week: As Long as My Foot-long
This week was painstakingly dreadful despite the upcoming, highly anticipated labor day weekend and being released a little earlier today. I was really hoping to be let out before lunch and was so looking forward to (and expecting) it that I totally forgot about lunch ... until I realized that everybody in the office had gone out. So I faced the truth and went to get myself a Subway's foot-long while moping.
I opted for the oven-roasted chicken on whole wheat bread with everything on it plus honey mustard. It was literally as long as my keyboard. All that for $5 excluding tax ...amazing!
When I finally got home, my beau shows me a mini-mooncake that his co-worker had given him. It was delivered to her straight from Hong Kong and she demanded that he eat it quickly while it's fresh! Hence we scarfed it down!
It really was just a mini "cake." It was nothing like the traditional moon cake other than the "moon," or the yolk, in the center. But then again, over the past few years, the moon cake has evolved into variations including chilled moon cakes and flavored moon cakes (such as green tea, red bean, etc). Nonetheless, this mini moon cake was very delish and I'd prefer having this over the original moon cake anytime.
