It’s the perfect time to try Bak Kwa

With the Chinese New Year approaching, it’s time for us to start our spring cleaning, buy a new wardrobe, and buy Chinese New Year gifts to keep guests entertained as they visit.

The festive season is the perfect excuse to indulge in the all-time popular bak kwa (which translates to long yoke in Cantonese, which means sturdy wealth), and Singaporeans love it so much that they can endure hours in line, just to grab a few boxes.

Think thinly sliced ​​pork that has been marinated in salt and sugar and grilled to smoky perfection. These addicting bites go well with a rich, full bodied Burgundy wine.

NEED TO HAVE

Pineapple tarts are another must-have for Chinese New Year.

There are two versions – pineapple jam on a crumbly butter base or filled with a pillow-shaped pastry (less sweet version).

The golden pineapple filling means prosperity. If you add a few more this year, you might increase your chances of hitting the jackpot.

Don’t miss the paper-thin egg rolls known as love letters, usually printed with oriental patterns or wordings, with a buttery scent and rich history.

Legend has it that star crosser lovers would use these wafers to communicate in secret and, after reading the message, devour the snacks to remove any trace of evidence.

No Chinese New Year would be complete without the traditional exchange of a pair of mandarins – which represent abundance and happiness – alongside good wishes.
