“I’m an Almond London, I can’t help it.”
Seriously, what is Raya without the cookies? Despite all the lontong, lemang and biryani, there is always space for some kuih Raya. Who you are is what you eat, apparently, therefore in true UPPRE fashion, let’s find out, what does your favorite Raya cookie say about you?
Almond London (The Classy AF One)
You are a classy soul who isn’t one for taking risks but knows what’s good. You may not be easily perceived but those who know you see all the different layers of your personality and that makes you a well-loved person. You’re that cool kid that some people rave about but not everyone knows about at first.
Peanut Butter Cookies (The Underdog)
Being an underdog is your accolade and you honour it. Always away from the limelight but recognised for good deeds, you walk the talk with directedness and sincerity. Just like the peanut butter cookie, you have an edge and maybe some people should take some salt with your sweetness sometimes.
Oreo Truffles (Pinterest Influencer)
Your middle name should be ‘Fancy’ because you thrive to stand out from the crowd, always. Pinterest visions boards and Instagram’s Save tabs are your best friend since creativity is your biggest knack. Whether if it is your fashion sense, quirky personality or just a really unique hobby, you just love being adventurous and seek challenges to be different. How else were these truffles discovered if it weren’t for innovation?
Cadbury Cookies (Trend-fiend)
You just love the attention, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Important things need a voice and you are just that. Always one to seek sensation and controversy, you are on top it, if not leading it. The glaring limelight can be your biggest vice, however, when done responsibly, you will soar high.
Kuih Semperit (One with Traditions)
The wise one in your group of friends, you are the one with conventions and time-honoured traditions. Your dedication to family, friendships, and love are admirable. You have friends from childhood who you still chill out with as well as function as the person who always picks out the gift for your parents in a brood of siblings. You are the first person on speed dial for good and the unfortunate news and for both, you have a comforting grace just like the melt-in-your-mouth sensation as the cookie.
Butter/Ghee Cookies (Basic, soz)
When it comes to life, you’re all in. You run on carefree delight and are happy to deal with the consequences later. YOLO is life mantra and that’s what makes your company, addictive to the rest. Just like the pure indulgence which butter cookies bring, your happy-go-lucky nature sees no full stop at what life has to offer.
Pineapple Tarts (The Hardworker)
Hustling is the only trade you live by. You are self-motivated and very hardworking to get what you want and do not rely on anyone to get what you want. You are popular at parties for your successes and just like the cookie, you’re always invited to the party and don’t need much to be a certified crowd pleaser.
Honey Cornflakes (Queen of Shortcuts)
You believe in working smart, not hard. You also love improvising and always on the lookout for a different take on things. You enjoy DIY projects as much as being the social butterfly on other days. You have a loud personality with a big circle of friends, you are the honey cornflakes everyone craves for on Raya.
Sometimes you like more than one type of cookie and that’s fine—just like personalities, your cookie preferences can overlap too.
Your favourite cookie didn’t make the cut this year? Well, better luck next Raya!
