Chinese New Year is also a season of gifting. Besides getting together with our friends and loved ones, gifts are also considered as a kind of ways to deliver our blessings and wishes.
Chinese loves to gives meanings to things that they practice or do especially during Chinese New Year which includes gifts. Traditionally, they would offer Mandarin Orange or what we called in Chinese “Kam” which represent Gold during the visiting. Elderly and married couples also offers their blessings to the unmarried, kids and elderly by giving them a red packet which filled with money. Chinese do also send hampers to their business associates to wish them a Prosperous year ahead with abundance business and wealth.
One of the special gifts that Chinese commonly gives are “Bak Kwa” or what we called it BBQ Meat Slice. Bak Kwa is dried meat, similar to jerky. Bak Kwa is generally sliced thin and cut into squares. It can be made from beef, pork or mutton and while it traces its origins to Southern China, it is particularly popular in Singapore and Malaysia. Often times the meat is grilled over charcoal to give it a smoky flavour, then blended with a combination of spices, soy sauce and sugar. It can be used as an ingredient in other dishes or enjoyed on its own.
Traditionally, Bak Kwa was an expensive, luxury food and as such became popular during Chinese New Year when families wanted to welcome prosperity for the coming year and offer lavish gifts for friends and family. While it not as expensive as it once was, it is still a traditional Chinese New Year food and welcomed gift for friends or relatives representing luxury and prosperity wishes.
Normally it was being pack into a transparent packet and place into a red paper bag to be given as a gift. But that doesn’t looks luxurious any way right?
