As always, Tikoy, or Glutinous Rice Cake in English, is something you would find in a Chinese family's home during Chinese New Year. They say that since Tikoy is sticky, it will translate to good family ties all year long. But besides that belief, it's also yummy to eat.
If there's one thing I don't understand, it's this. I don't really know what this means, what it will bring us, but yeah, it's erected on a mountain of rice in a bowl. If anyone figures out what this suppose to mean, and why they're erected on top of a bowl-full of rice, please don't hesitate to comment :P What does your family do during Chinese New Year?
P.S. Don't forget to wear YELLOW today! :)
