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.
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.
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.
Compared to the others, you’re a little different. But you don’t need to shout about it. You fly under the radar while managing to be effortlessly cool. Your quirks are what sets you apart from the rest. Very few can pull off what you do.

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.

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.
