It's the perfect time to binge on bak kwa
With Chinese New Year just around the corner, it is time for us to get started on spring cleaning, shop for a new wardrobe and stock up on Chinese New Year goodies to entertain guests when they visit.
The festive season provides the perfect excuse to binge on the all-time favourite bak kwa (which is translated to long yoke in Cantonese, meaning robust fortune) and Singaporeans love it so much, they can endure hours in a snaking queue just to grab a few boxes.
Think thinly-sliced pork marinated in salt and sugar, and barbecued to smoky perfection. These addictive bites pair well with a rich full-bodied burgundy wine.
Pineapple tarts are another must-have Chinese New Year treat.
There are two versions - pineapple jam atop a crumbly butter base or stuffed in a pillow-shaped pastry (less sweet version).
The golden pineapple filling signifies prosperity, so pop a few more of these this year and you might boost your chances of hitting the jackpot.
Don't miss out on the paper-thin egg-roll wafers known as love letters, usually printed with oriental patterns or wordings and boasting a buttery fragrance and rich history.
Legend has it that star-crossed lovers would use these wafers to communicate in secret and after reading the message, they would gobble down the snacks to remove all traces of evidence.
No Chinese New Year would be complete without the traditional exchanging of a pair of mandarin oranges - which represent abundance and good fortune - with one another, alongside well wishes.
