Everyone has a favourite Kuih Raya

Whether it’s a recipe handed down through generations, or trendy and innovative, or a twist on a classic, there is that one kuih, or should we say snack, that you just can’t get enough of. You’re in luck – it’s that time of the year when you can not only get that favourite snack to celebrate Hari Raya, but also catch the best of Malay music, theatre and dance in Singapore.

The Malay festival of arts, Pesta Raya, returns from 27 to 30 June. With over 20 free and ticketed programmes—all sedap (delicious)—it might be hard to choose. We'll help.

Which Hari Raya snack best describes you? Pick one, and we’ll tell you what shows you’d like. Not sure? Scroll down for the quiz.

The traditional

You’re a tried and tested recipe. Backed by generations, there is a rich sense of history about you, but you’re not afraid of change. And you’re no lightweight in the taste department – you’re complex and layered, perfected by years of experimentation and effort.

We recommend:

Kuih Tart

The reliable favourite

You don’t need to be showy. You’re a classic and simplicity is your virtue. With you, what you see is what you get. You know your strengths – you’re good without needing any bells and whistles. You’ll never go out of style.

We recommend:

Kuih Semperit

The rebellious

You’re a rule breaker. You are “go jer” (just do it). You’re the product of innovation—a mix of East and West—but you know where you came from. You march to the beat of your own drum, but that drum could be a Milo tin.

We recommend:

Kuih Nasi Lemak

The sweet & cheery

You’re full of colour and life. The crowd favourite. Your nostalgic charm makes you popular with both kids and adults. You don’t apologise for your zest for life and playfulness. You think everyone should loosen up and have more fun.
