Soap like Food -- #7 Fish Nian Gao !

Nian Gao (粘糕) which means "sticky cake" is a popular gift during Chinese New Year. It is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao as the Chinese words 粘糕 sound identical to 年高 which implies prosperity year after year. The tradition of eating Nian Gao, which dates back several thousand years, is believed to ensure that better times will come.

The traditional Nian Gao is round in shape (symbolising wholeness) with an auspicious decoration on top. Nian Gao fashioned into beautiful carps take this tradition to another level of abundance and wealth. Fish Nian Gao -- 年年有餘 symbolises surplus every year !
