More of Prague ~ Wordless Wednesday



Wenceslas Square is one of the two main squares in Prague, just 5 mins. away from the Old Town Square.  Lies at the heart of the New Town, it is a vibrant area of hotels, clubs, banks, apartments, international shops and restaurants.  It is the nightlife and entertainment centre of Prague and the main shopping district.  Metro lines intersect at this square and trams run through its centre.






National Museum - the vast Neo-Renaissance building at one end of  Wenceslas Square.  The entrance is reached by a ramp decorated with allegorical statues.






Dancing House is the first masterpiece of modern architecture designed by world renowned architect in Prague since the Velvet revolution 1989.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
