Chinese New Year, or the Spring Festival, is of immense importance to the Chinese people due to its deep-rooted cultural traditions, emphasis on family reunions, and symbolic significance. It is a time for families to come together, honor ancestors, and celebrate with rituals that include warding off evil spirits through firecrackers and vibrant lion and dragon dances.
Beyond symbolic practices, the festival signifies new beginnings, encouraging people to reconcile, settle debts, and embark on a fresh start. The massive migration of people during the Spring Festival travel rush reflects its economic and social impact, while the vibrant festive atmosphere, characterized by red decorations and cultural activities, adds to the overall significance of the occasion in reinforcing cultural identity and strengthening family bonds.
Here, all our products are specially handmade because we want our customers to enjoy and appreciate fresh traditional treats. This is why business owners love to invite us to corporate events to share the local heritage of making kueh. We have even been invited and taken photos with our Ministers during one of our heritage events. We enjoy every moment where we can build stories for our invitees to enjoy!

1. Lionhead Ang Ku Kueh
Starting off the list is our Lionhead Ang Ku Kueh. The lion head, often associated with lion dance performances in traditional Chinese culture, holds significant symbolism. Its key meanings can be associated with:
- Power and Strength
- Warding off Evil Spirits
- Cultural Heritage and Tradition
This rich history is included in cultural celebrations, especially during the Chinese New Year, and is a testament to its deep-rooted significance in Chinese folklore and traditions. At KuehHoJiak, our mission is to preserve our local heritage, and not forget what we are famous for; kueh.
To make this dish, we encased the earthy flavors of peanuts in a flavorful glutinous rice outer layer. This duo creates a harmonious blend of textures and tastes, making it an ideal gift to wish your loved ones a prosperous and fulfilling year ahead.
If you would like to try this dish, you would have to hurry and get it before CNY as it’s limited time only!
