This is also the one time of the year where you see the Money Kueh (牵仔粿,or 红群) everywhere. A specially shaped kueh moulded from a design that depicts a continuous string of ancient copper coins, the Money Kueh symbolizes the prosperity and abundance of financial resources.

You’ll also often see the Ang Ee (红圆) served together with the Money Kueh and the Ang Ku Kueh together in one set. The Ang Ee signfies a fruitful life and good fertility.

Fun fact: 2023 is a leap year which means 13 sets should be used instead of 12!
