This is Tikoy, made from glutinous rice. Tikoy can be eaten all year round but, traditionally it is popular during Chinese New Year. Tikoy is Nian gao in Chinese which means sticky for "nián" and "gāo" would mean cake. Eating nian gao symbolizes raising oneself higher in each coming year therefore, Tikoy food is for goodluck. This is one of my favorite Filipino-Chinese snacks. It tastes sweet and sticky.
