Every year for the past 8 years, CNY has meant mountains of butchered pineapple husks, scatterings of runaway peanuts on the floor and a snowy white dusting of tapioca starch all over my counters. My little home kitchen turns into a mini war zone, as I stir jam by the gallon, sift copious amounts of flour, knead huge balls of dough and make thousands of intricate bitesize cookies from scratch, one by one.
It's back-breakingly labor intensive, and essentially turns me into a slightly deranged, sleep deprived baking monster. So why do I do it?
Because I know that if like me, you're far away from family and any decent Malaysian bakery able to replicate local flavors accurately, then authentic CNY goodies can mean the world this time of year. You may not have endless relatives to visit or red cards to decorate the home with or angpow to collect/give out, but by golly you shall still eat festively! :)
Gong Hei Fatt Choy/Gong Xi Fa Cai in advance and here's to a prosperous Year of the Pig ahead for us all!
