For the Penang Chinese community, a baby reaching full moon (1 month old) is an important occasion. It is an important milestone in a baby’s growing up process. Some families will hold grand dinners for family and friends to celebrate the baby full moon occasion.
An important item for the celebration is the traditional baby full moon gift pack, which typically consists of nasi kunyit (glutinous rice cooked with turmeric), curry chicken, red eggs, ang koo (tortoise shell-shaped pastry for baby girl) or ang yee (pointed round-shaped pastry for baby boy). In the old days, these food items are prepared at home. But, this is not practical anymore, as most people do not know how to prepare these food items. In Penang, Eaton is one of the popular shops selling the traditional baby full moon gift pack. We can easily place the order, and they will package them nicely, ready to be presented to friends and families. No more worries on how to prepare the traditional baby full moon gift pack.
If you fancy a modern/different type of baby full moon gift pack, you may also want to check out Justart at Krystal Point, Bayan Lepas. Justart’s specialty is its tarts that are included in the baby full moon gift pack.
