At the risk of sounding like a total glutton, one of the things I enjoy most about Chinese New Year (CNY) are CNY goodies.

Pineapple tarts, Bak Kwa, Love Letters, Kuih Bangkit, Hae Bee Hiam and Chinese New Year cookies; I’m getting hungry as I type this list down.

As much as I enjoy the mass-produced CNY goodies, nothing beats discovering and eating lovely homemade CNY goodies.

As such, do bookmark the article for reference!
