Chicken drumstick. The licking of the chicken drumstick sort of signifies that she'll eat well next time. 3. Spring Onions. The spring onions (葱) has the same sound as clever (聪明) 4. Prawns - signifies that we want her to grow up being happy always. 5. Tau Kwa - to signify to rise up the ranks 6. Ang Bao - grandma must present a red packet 7.
