Chinese New Year has been a tradition celebrated by the Chinese centuries ago, until this very day. Doesn’t matter if we’re studying or working, it’s the time of year again where we can kick back at home and relax. As revellers get ready for two weeks of celebrations to welcome in 12 months of the Rooster, families will congregate, clean their houses and sweep away bad fortune on New Year’s Day, gather together for reunion dinners, people decorate their houses with which will see many Rooster themed decorations this year. And of course, not forgetting the red packets with ‘lucky money’ to be given along with well wishes for children to grow up healthy, and adults to usher greater wealth and prosperity.
没错！非常追崇幸福感的大人特於今年的农历新年 (2017年)，与BIKA 和马来西亚著名插画家 Pocotee & Friends 合作推出精美限量“鸡”大欢喜红包封 (也就是说咱们也有为传承文化献出绵力啦～)！於新山五福城广场 (共两场：1月14日 & 1月21日) 所举办的红包派送现场反应真的好热烈 🎉 ！看着以上现场满满的合家同欢画面，是不是顿时洋溢着幸福感？与会者领取了精美红包封套后，还能参与幸运抽奖得到由 BIKA 盛情赞助的礼包啊！大人我在此真心感谢各位看官们的热情支持哦 😄 ！
於1979年成立的 BIKA，原来已不知不觉驻进了大伙儿的童年记忆有38年之久！大人当然也是其一啊～ 犹记得小学放学后总会掏出口袋里那微薄的零用钱，毫不犹豫地买下回家前的人间美味。如今回想起那久远的岁月，还蛮庆幸爸爸妈妈们并没有阻断大人累积童年回忆的机会，因为放学后吃零食与下班后吃大餐松懈身心的效果如出一辙啊！😌
No matter who we are, what we do, or where we are in life, we’ll always remember the snacks we munched on as kids that created precious memories in our lives and had made it so deliciously reminiscent. While we devour all those fancy waffles, bingsu and soft serve ice creams, our childhood snacks are slowly fading in the picture, and we certainly don’t wish for them to become “extinct” because they play such a huge part in our growing up days.
Come 2017, our team at MAGistrate has decided to buck the trend and instead invite all of you to walk down the memory lane, regardless of your age and the year you were born, as we celebrate both tradition and nostalgia with a slightly modern twist. In teaming up with Pocotee & Friends again, and for the very first time, a homegrown Malaysian brand that has grown with a generation of Malaysia (and Singapore) kids, including your truly, our first public event of the year witnessed hundreds of families, young and old, gathered at Sutera Mall last weekend (14 January) to join in the festivity, and to get their hands on our limited edition Angpow packets and exclusive festive goodie bags, courtesy of BIKA.
Surely by now, this all-familiar name has triggered an avalanche of memories from our childhood. Through good and bad times, when we had extra pocket money, when we made new friends in school, when we were down and out, or just rewards for the rare occasions when we finished our homework in time, BIKA has been our faithful companion for the past 38 years (since 1979), and still counting…

What better way to usher the Year of the Rooster than to serve up the original savoury chicken snacks that we munched on while watching our favourite cartoons. Apparently, we didn’t just stop at the original, but grab the full line up of chicken delights, including the more exotic flavours such as the Roasted Chicken, Curry Chicken and Black Pepper Chicken to complete your chicken dance… Cluck! Cluck! Cluck!
It’s amazing how a simple plating design can make a world of difference, when we present our “snacks collection” for a BIKA’s afternoon tea, much to the delight of all our guests.
Cheers to a healthier new year and new you (and us) in 2017, happy snacking!
