The best part of Chinese New Year is, no doubt, the cookies, and the snacks! In the West, Thanksgiving and Christmas are occasions to feast but for us Malaysians who celebrate it, Chinese New Year is our equivalent of that. Behold, your favourite cookies are now available online!

Almond cookies have a subtle nutty flavour mixed with vanilla. These cookies are soft to the bite and crumble in your mouth. Be careful not to drop crumbs on the floor!

Let the pineapple rolls vs. pineapple tart debate begin! Pineapple tarts typically have more jam and more crumbly pastries compared to pineapple rolls. Take your pick!
