This Dragon Boat Festival, we are excited to join hands with the most talented @heartfeltmakan to bring you felt bak zhangs!
This limited edition and exclusive felt bak zhang set includes 2 bak zhangs tied with string.
Did your family make bak zhangs growing up? I remember my mum and late grandma waking up in the wee hours in the morning to wrap rice dumplings as the festival drew near. They'd boil them for hours on end in a huge pot, yielding dozens of yummy goodness that would be hanging off S-hooks in the kitchen. We'd share some with family, and then these bak zhangs would appear on our menu almost daily for the following week. These bak zhangs are perfect dipped with Maggi sweet chilli sauce, while the yellowish Alkaline dumplings taste better dipped in orange sugar!
These beautiful felt bak zhangs lend themselves to lots of pretend play fun after learning through reading books and festive activities! Perfect to extend the festive mood beyond the season, to reminisce the festival over and over again.
(Product may differ slightly from the photos, as each felt rice dumpling is handmade with love in Singapore!)
