每年過新年辦年貨, 一定少不了呢一兜兜嘅手工食品.. 有傳統嘅有新穎嘅, 咩花生餅, 椰汁餅, 薯粉餅, 菠蘿躂, 各式各樣花多眼亂.. 全部清一色用個紅色蓋透明塑膠桶裝入, 係唔係好熟悉呢?? 我相信家家戶戶必定有幾桶掌門口架喇, 係睇多寡啫..
我屋企就成個飯檯都係囉, 話就話係準備畀上門拜年啲親朋戚友食, 不過食得幾多吖又?? 每年又唔係淨返一大堆, 自己慢慢嚼成個幾兩個月都嚼唔晒?? 其實呢啲嘢食多會濟而且致肥又熱氣, 再加上越賣就越貴, 一桶要20蚊以上(成本得幾蚊, 真係好大個口!!), 都唔知屋企點解要買咁多返嚟, 嘥錢.. 唔通真係就咁樣年年有餘??for every year amongst all the CNY goodies, we will for sure never miss out those homemade cookies.. be them traditional or innovative, peanut cakes, coconut milk crisps, tapioca cookies, pineapple tarts, you name it they got it.. all being kept in transparent plastic containers with red cover, familiar eih?? i believe every single family will have all these at home, the difference is only by how much or how less..
we have loads of them laying on our dining table, they are actually meant for the guests, but well you know, guests don't eat much of these things.. and so, every year we have an abundance of them left over after the CNY, it normally took ourselves more than two months to finish up all these cookies.. i personally think you won't eat much, they are fattening and heaty, and what's more, they are getting more and more expensive at least RM20 for a tub (whereas i think the cost is less than RM5).. still don't understand why we, my family i mean, are buying these much, kind of waste money i think.. the chinese symbolises this as bountiful abundance of wealth, is that the major purpose?? :p
