Some companies in Malaysia market products using attractive boxes with the painting of Chinese maidens. The biscuit box is sold during Chinese New Year and the Mooncake Box (if I am not mistaken is by Baker’s Cottage) is to put mooncakes.
Needless to say, the attractive packaging (the boxes are made from steel) justifies the dearer price. Anyway, these designs were a few years back when the economic was still good….
