Merienda Time: Tikoy

This is a delayed Chinese New Year post. Since most, if not all, bloggers out there have already posted a thing or two about Chinese new year.

I just wanted to share this picture of tikoy. The white one uses white sugar while the brown tikoy uses brown sugar. I like the brown one since the sugar used is not refined.

Most Chinoys, Chinese born and raised here in the Philippines, give away tikoy to close family, business partners and friends as a symbol to stay closely knit to each other. Since tikoy, when cooked, is sticky.

I hope you got a tikoy from your Chinoy friends!
