Today is the 15th and last day of the Chinese New Year Festival. It is the Chinese equivalent of Valentine’s Day and is often celebrated with night markets and lanterns. One of the traditions of this day is to place the first sentence of a poem upon the lanterns, with the game being to guess the last sentence. Young lovers enjoy visiting the night markets and guessing the riddles on the lanterns together.
The traditional food for feasting on this last day is glutinous rice ball, known as Tang Yuan. Being round they symbolise completeness, unity and the full circle. To celebrate glutinous rice balls are on special today at Melbourne’s popular Asian grocery supermarket, TANG The Asian Food Emporium at 185 Russell Street, Melbourne. Laurel’s Brand 200g glutinous rice ball sesame flavour is only $1.80 (was $3.20), 200g glutinous rice ball peanut flavour and black glutinous rice ball sesame flavour are now only $2.60 (was $3.20).
