PENANG: The state Wanita MCA intends to raise about RM50,000 from the sale of Chinese New Year cookies and calligraphic couplets in aid of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar). 

State Wanita MCA chief Ooi Siew Kim said members in all 11 divisions had been mobilised to make some 10 varieties of delicacies which are now for sale until Jan 31. 

Ooi added that the cookies, which would carry “Support Utar” logos on the jars, would be made available at all state MCA functions and would be sold through various Chinese societies, associations and organisations. 

“Every division has a role to play in this cookie project – they are either involved in the production, packaging or selling.  

“This is the result of teamwork in support of Utar,” she told a press conference yesterday to announce the availability of the festive delicacies. 

She said the cookie project was part of a series of activities to be held towards achieving the RM100,000 target set for them by the central party in aid of Utar. 

The festive delicacies include kueh kapit (love letters), kueh bahulu, peanut cookies, sweet potato crisps and other cookies. 

Ooi said the sticky, sweet glutinous rice cake or ti kueh would also be available towards the month end and closer to Chinese New Year on Feb 1. 

The delicacies packed in plastic jars and tins are priced between RM6 and RM18 while the couplets with auspicious writings cost RM10 a pair. 

Those interested in buying them can contact Aw or Lim at 04-226 7827, Lim at 016-481 4430 or Tan at 012-503 7649.
