Here Is How These Chinese New Year Food Became Lucky

CNY, Celebration

Each food served during the Chinese New Year reunion dinner has its meaning.. Here Is How These Chinese New Year Food Became Lucky The best thing about the festive season is the food! To some cultures, the food has its individual meaning, hence, they must serve it. So during Chinese New Year, in Chinese culture, they represent the presentation of the food or pronunciation to auspicious meanings. Plus, they use common homophones (two or more words have the same pronunciation but different meanings) such as prosperity, success, and family togetherness in Chinese. Here are some of the foods served during the Lunar New Year’s reunion dinner and their meaning! Fish (鱼; yú) If you see the dinner set up during the Chinese New Year reunion dinner, you’ll see a whole fish on the table. The dish is intended to welcome prosperity for the entire year. In Mandarin, the word “surplus” (余, yú) has the same pronunciation as “fish” (鱼, yú). They even have an idiom 年年有余 (níanníanyoǔyú), meaning “to have a surplus every year.” This also means they created a pun 年年有鱼 meaning “to have fish every year.” Plus, it’s customary to serve the whole fish and only eat the middle. It’s because of another expression in Chinese 有头有尾 (yǒutóuyǒuwěi) which literally means “to have both a head and a tail.” The remaining parts of the fish should be eaten the next day to symbolize the surplus will overflow into the future. For added luck, the fish should face guests or elders as a sign of respect. Dumplings ( 蒸饺; jiaozi) If you’re a fan of Chinese historical dramas, you notice that the characters would use gold ingots as business transactions. Since dumplings share a close resemblance to gold ingots, they represent wealth. Those who are living with the older generation, typically wrap their own dumplings and continue to do that until midnight as a symbolic gesture leaving the old year behind. Whole Chicken (鸡肉; jīròu) A chicken dish is typically served as a whole to represent family togetherness. In some households, the chicken’s feet are served for the breadwinners of the family. It’s symbolising them grasping onto wealth. Spring Rolls (春卷; chūnjuǎn) This crispy golden dish was originally intended to combine all of the season’s freshest vegetables together in one dish to celebrate spring. Because the name literally means spring and roll referring to the spring season. Now, it’s common to see spring rolls during Lunar New Year because they resemble gold bars and people eat spring rolls to attract good fortune for the coming year. Longevity noodles (长寿面; chángshòu miàn) People in North China eat this auspicious noodle on Chinese New Year. These longer than normal noodles and uncut are either fried or boiled and served in a bowl with their broth. These long noodles represent a long life to the eater. Also, it’s customary to slurp down the noodle without chewing. Glutinous rice cake (年糕; nián gāo) This particular dessert literally means “New Year’s cake”. Plus, the word cake sounds the same as the word “tall” or “to grow”. With that being said, eating glutinous rice on Lunar New Year symbolizes growth, whether it be in career, income, health, or even height. Just like how the phrase 年年有余 (níanníanyoǔyú), nian gao also has a popular phrase which is 年年高升 (níanníangāoshēng). It means “to increase prosperity every year.” Tangyuan ( 湯圓; tāngyuán) This sweet and chewy dessert is eaten on the 15th day after the Lunar New Year. Tangyuan is a small, round dumpling made from glutinous rice flour. The fillings are traditionally made from black sesame paste, red bean paste, date paste, or peanut paste. Tangyuan is a special dish for Lunar New Year because the name sounds like 团圆 (túanyúan) or “reunion” or “togetherness”. Fortune Fruits Of course, you can’t miss oranges or tangerines on Chinese New Year. These fruits symbolise fullness and wealth because they are round and “golden” in colour. Also, when you say the fruits name in Chinese, they sound lucky. Orange and tangerine in Chinese are 橙 (chéng) that sounds the same as the word for “success”, 成. Plus, another way to write tangerine in Chinese is (桔 jú) contains the Chinese character for luck (吉 jí). Having all those delicious, auspicious foods are great. But, sometimes there are not enough for all relatives that come over. So, you can order anything on NMooMoo and enjoy up to RM23 off a food order and RM5 off the delivery fee! Oh!

5 Benefits of Chilli Peppers

Health & Wellness

Get to know more about chilli peppers. 15 Benefits of Chilli Peppers Almost everyone likes some spiciness with their food. It’s like the food is missing something that makes it extraordinary. Chilli peppers or Capsicum annuum (sound like one of the spells from Harry Potter) are from the fruits (yeap not a vegetable) of Capsicum pepper plants. Also, when we’re talking about its family line, they are related to bell peppers and tomatoes. Some of us know the varieties of chilli peppers that exist like cayenne and jalapeno. Despite the fact that it’s super spicy for some people, let’s take a look at the benefits of chilli peppers. 1. Pain Relief Now, we all know that our tongue can taste sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami. Notice that our tongue doesn’t have “spicy” receptors? That’s because, capsaicin - the bioactive plant compound in chilli peppers bind with our pain receptors. So, this means that it gives a burning sensation but doesn’t actually cause any real burning injuries. Also, people can tolerate spicy food than others is because they’ve consumed a lot of chilli peppers. This has caused their pain receptors to be less sensitive over time. Hence, they aren’t able to feel the burning sensation of chilli. 2. Losing Weight Yes, you can lose weight by incorporating chilli peppers into your diet. There is evidence that supports this claim. Some suggest that capsaicin promotes weight loss by reducing appetite and increasing fat burning. Nevertheless, there are studies that found consuming chilli to lose weight not effective. Still, the best method to lose weight healthily is to lead a healthy lifestyle i.e. eat right and do regular exercises. 3. Lower Body Temperature Ever heard of fighting heat with heat? Especially during a hot day, some people would order something spicy to cool off. Sounds counterintuitive right? Apparently, they were right. Capsaicin found in green chillies is known to lower body temperature. It does this by stimulating the cooling centre of the hypothalamus in the brain. 4. Improve Immune System Whenever we have a cold or flu, a stuffy nose can be really annoying. Usually, we put something like rubbing ointment that has menthol to relieve those discomforts. Some people might eat something spicy to stimulate the nose’s mucous membranes and sinuses. Capsaicin will make the blood flow through the membranes and causes mucus secretion to become thinner. 5. Promotes Red Blood Cell Growth Chilli peppers are rich in copper and iron that it helps with new blood cell formation. Hence, they can treat symptoms of anaemia and fatigue. Besides copper and iron, chilli peppers also contain folic acid, which is excellent for fighting anaemia. Also, folic acid is precious for pregnant women because the lack of folic acid could mean congenital disabilities in newborn babies. No matter if you like your food spicy or not, also remember to take them in moderation. Over consuming chilli peppers could be bad for your health.

10 Amazing Benefits of Ginger

Health & Wellness

Ginger has been used to cure everything from motion sickness to help fight everything from nausea to help fight against inflammation.. 10 Amazing Benefits of Ginger Ginger has been used for centuries, both in cooking and for medicinal purposes. Although the root is often used as an ingredient in cooked dishes or ground and dried into an essential item in your spice cabinet, ginger can relieve nausea and gastrointestinal irritation and reduce exercise-induced muscle pain and inflammation. Here some of the ten benefits that you get from ginger. Image by: Couleur, Pixabay Alleviate Morning Sickness and Relieve Nausea Image by: Hilary Hahn, Unsplash Ginger is well-known for its anti-nausea properties. As a result, ginger is sometimes recommended as a treatment for seasickness. Gingerol and shogaol, the compounds that give ginger its bite, are also responsible for reducing nausea and vomiting. Ginger tea can also help with nausea caused by morning sickness during pregnancy and after chemotherapy. Improve Digestion and Relieve Gas Image by: Ben Bernard, Pixabay Do you have a stomachache? To relieve the gases accumulated in the intestinal tract during digestion, boil some water with grated fresh ginger. Ginger's enzymes will help the body break up and remove this gas, alleviating any discomfort. Alternatively, if you suffer from constipation, include ginger in your diet. It could aid in the passage of food through the digestive tract. Recover From A Cold Or The Flu Image by: Silviarita, Pixabay Ginger is one of the most popular choices when it comes to relieving a cold or the flu. But, more research is needed to support this benefit. Fresh ginger has been shown to help battle respiratory viruses. Fresh ginger had antiviral effects in respiratory infection models in a 2013 laboratory study. They saw that the use of dried ginger did not have any effect. They concluded that fresh ginger appears to stop virus’ reproduction. However, ginger does not seem to defend against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that triggers COVID-19. Relieving Pain Image by: Anke Sundermeier , Pixabay For those who are exercising and feel muscle pain, take a daily dose of 2g of raw or heated ginger. At the same time, ginger may also help reduce menstruation pain - right before or during. Though, more research needed to be done to get more accurate results. Reducing Inflammation Image by: Ajale, Pixabay Ginger taken by mouth is “modestly efficacious and reasonably safe” for treating inflammation caused by osteoarthritis.” One of the compound in ginger called phytochemical may combat inflammation. Researchers are still researching the most effective dosages and types of ginger extract. Supporting Cardiovascular Health Image by: Bluebird Provisions, Unsplash There’s also evidence that consuming ginger extract may help with cardiovascular disease. It may reduce cholesterol and lower your risk of having any sort of blood clots. In the future, ginger can become an essential medicine for treating diabetes and heart diseases. Lowering Cancer Risk Image by: Jerzy Górecki, Pixabay Ginger is an excellent antioxidants source that can reduce various types of oxidative stress. Your body must eliminate free radicals from the body to avoid cellular damage that can lead to various diseases, including cancer—antioxidants in the diet aid the body's elimination of free radicals. A study by the British Journal of Nutrition found that ginger was very effective in blocking prostate cancer cells and their growth. Improves Brain Functions Image by: Joe Wei, Pixabay Ginger also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and helps with cognitive function. In other words, it just gets you into a different mental state. Various studies provide evidence that ginger root may boost cognitive ability according to evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine. Can Help With Osteoarthritis Image by: Joseph Mucira, Pixabay Most older adults are afflicted with osteoarthritis, which describes joint pain and stiffness in the elderly. The scientists polled 247 people who received 100mg of ginger per day. Shockingly, there's been a decrease in joint pain since then. Even a tiny amount of ginger, cinnamon, and extra virgin olive oil and sesame oil can relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. DNA Protection Image by: Leo_65, Pixabay Ginger insulates your DNA from wearing out and breaking down, and developing flaws in the womb. Other researchers found that men who ingested 500mg of ginger three times a day for three months had improved sperm quality. Ginger definitely has a lot of benefits to improve our health. Plus, it also one of the popular ingredient in Asian cooking. You can find them in almost all dishes when you order or try your hands to cook one.

10 Chewy Facts About Bubble Tea

Bubble Tea

Bubble tea became a trend a few years ago. So, for International Tea Day, let's learn about bubble tea or boba tea.. 10 Chewy Facts About Bubble Tea You gotta give it to Taiwanese for creating the bubble tea drink trend. Call it however you want; boba tea, bubble tea, and pearl milk tea essentially refer to the same thing. Celebrating this year’s international tea day, let’s have a look at the evolution of bubble tea that took the world by storm. The Drink With Many Names Whatever you name it, the drink is made up of black tea, milk, ice, and chewy tapioca pearls. It is then shaken up like a martini and served with the famously fat straw to fit the tapioca marbles that collect at the bottom of the cup. Also, it is believed that the name ‘bubble tea’ was derived from the bubbles formed when the milk tea was shaken, not the chewy brown pearls inside the drink. How Did It Start? There are many versions of how bubble tea began. But, there’s one story that many agreed to be true. Taiwanese tea stands became increasingly popular in the 1980s. Hence, many businesses were trying to be different. Then, one concession owner at the Chun Shui Tang teahouse in Taichung started serving Chinese tea cold after getting the idea from iced Japanese coffee. After a few years, the concession’s product development manager, Lin Hsiu Hui, was in a boring meeting. So, she put her sweetened tapioca pudding into her Assam iced tea and drink it. They loved the concoctions and decided to sell the product and became an instant hit. Since then, many tea businesses tried to emulate the success with different flavour teas and boba pearls. In Malaysia, you can thank social media for creating the trend and demand. Bubble tea shops began a trend by making attractive drinks that inspired customers to share them on social media. They went viral and received a lot of coverage. All want to be a part of the social phenomena that the drinks look and taste. Boba Is Like Gummy Bear No! Not the taste but the consistency.Here’s a rule of thumb to know if the boba is perfectly cooked.If it’s hard, it’s undercooked. If it’s mushy, it’s overcooked. If it’s soft and chewy, it’s just right Switch It Up But some of you don’t like the tapioca balls in the drink. So, many bubble tea concessions created options for you. Choose to add pudding, aloe vera, ice cream, jelly, or any toppings that they offer, or nothing at all. Burst of Flavours As mentioned above, the basic for bubble tea is tea, milk, and sugar. Thanks to its popularity and increased demand, many concessions have created bubble tea with a variety of flavours like honeydew, mango, strawberry, avocado, chocolate, oats, and many others! 680 Litres of Bubble Tea A Japanese YouTuber, Mihara Keigo, held the Guinness World Record for serving the largest serving of bubble tea at a concert in Taipei, Taiwan, on 3rd November 2018. The cup stood tall at 680 litres, with almost 170 litres of it made up of tapioca balls alone! A group of six people was all it took to complete the masterpiece within four hours and eight minutes. At the end of the day, 2,000 people get to enjoy Mihara’s bubble tea. Boba on A Pizza When it comes to food, some people can get very creative. So creative that you wonder, “what is going on inside their head?” Getting onto the boba trend hype, Domino’s launched boba pizza - cheese, honey, and tapioca balls. Chewy pizza, anyone? Is It Nutritious? Tapioca’s sole purpose is to provide fast energy as a carbohydrate. The vitamin and mineral content is very poor. The lack of fibre is so noticeable that even if you ate enough tapioca to get any nutritional value, you'd probably become very constipated. Brown and White Pearls The tapioca pearls are made by passing moist cassava starch through a sieve. It is then rolled into small balls until it has dried. The colour of the pearl varies depending on the ingredients. The cassava root is the only ingredient in white tapioca pearls. The brown ones are made with cassava root, brown sugar, and potentially harmful food dyes like caramel colouring, which is used in soda and contains an unnatural source of phosphorous that has been shown to leach calcium from your bones. Moderation is Key So basically, the drink is made of brewed tea, milk, sugar, and tapioca balls. Of course, you can enjoy different types of concoctions such as mango or peach tea with pearls. Still, you should always enjoy the drink in moderation. After reading about boba tea, order your favourite drink from the NMooMoo app or website now!
