tikoy, "nian kao" in mandarin

is a chinese delicay and a must during chinese new year...

i can see tht ..is packed nicely in boxes... kind of commercialize...

in malaysia, the good tikoy are not from factory of shops...
it is those make from home...

th tikoy is made from glutinous rice flour with brown sugar...and it is normally pour into a cup made from banana-leaves and them steam it...

I like these. The one with the man and the boxes and the green backround is a lovely colour composition. The whole thing is good visual anthropology. Thanks

Mitsa,

The reason Tikoy cannot be found in the Canadian Chinese community is because this type of New Year delicacy is typically Southern Hokkien (Fujianese), where a lot of the Tsinoys hail from. Those in Canada (or North America for that matter) hail from Guangzhou (Canton).

It's like asking a Kampampangan if he knows Cebuano 'puso' or asking an Ilonggo,what is Kapampangan 'kamaru' (crispy locusts). Yeah theyre both Pinoys but with different cultural varieties.

----------------------------

Tikoy actually comes from the Hokkien word 'ti-keh' or sweet cake. It became Tikoy when it entered the Filipino language.

You know CNY is just around the cornerwhen the whole Chinatown is literally painted red- with Tikoy boxes.

I love tikoy also. Suprise that they called by the same name. Tikoy is actually Hokkien.

Very nice set, I will like to try the Tikoy some time.

Hahaha. I think I'll drown on all those tikoy boxes. I'm starting to get hungry.

Looks like a popular treat. I like the repetition of all of the boxes.

Just been over the last few lots of your posts and they are all impressive. I wanted to share something with you that is evident to many people of asian descent that know of or have experienced the cultural idiosyncracies of the maori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand). But its too much to insert in here! If you like to hear would you consider giving me your emaill address Sidney?
