The red balls of baby boys

I posted about Chinese tradition of giving red eggs, red angkoo (tortoise) and red peaches (ang tho) when one have a baby girl.

Today, my nephew’s baby boy celebrated his full moon and I got a package of nasi kunyit with the red balls. I love the red balls because it has so much fillings inside.
