The arrival of a baby is a joyous occasion for every parent and there are many ways to celebrate it. For most of us who reside in Malaysia understand that the one-month-long confinement period is crucial for the new mother to recover and for the newborn to adjust to life outside the womb. While this may seem like an archaic practice, its benefits far outweigh its cons.
A baby’s full month (or full moon) is considered as a major milestone, which is an important occasion, especially among the Chinese community here in Malaysia. After symbolic rituals and customs are carried out, it is time for the parents to introduce their little bundle of joy to the world with a full moon party.
Parents are showered with blessings and the baby with tons of gifts! In return, parents prepare symbolic gifts to present to those who gave their blessings. Traditionally, red-coloured foods are offered as it represents the auspiciousness of the occasion. Here are some symbolic gifts that are usually presented:
Guests will receive hard-boiled eggs dyed red that represents the renewal of life.
Ang Ku Kueh also known as tortoise cakes are made of sticky glutinous rice that signifies blessings and longevity.
While this is traditionally practised by the Chinese community, many have embraced this practice of gifting full moon gift boxes to announce the arrival of their latest addition. Now, you can announce the arrival of your baby in style with Perfect Match’s Baby Full Moon Premium Gift Box.
