Daily destination for Pinoys in Canada for Philippine News, Business, Events, Blogs, Technology updates and more…
THE awaited Chinese New Year rolls in this midnight and today’s Live! issue will try to enumerate for the heck of tradition and nostalgia, a few Chinese-Pinoy snacks that everyone has learned to love through the years.
Tikoy. A fitting article starter, this favorite local snack is more popular as nián gao in China. Interestingly, the Chinese consider this as a year cake, or Chinese New Year cake. But that’s not to say that the best tikoys in town are only out every Chinese New Year. Although, the Chinese consider it lucky to eat tikoys (the name taken from Hokkien) every Chinese New Year since nian gao is a homonym for “higher year.”
