Tradition in Taiwan dictates that when one's baby turns one month old, the parents must present others with a gift. If the said infant is a girl, cookies/cakes are given; a boy, sticky rice. Two Taiwanese coworkers' baby boys just turned one month. This cause for celebration was announced in the form of a special meal. Sticky rice is commonly given during Chinese New Year, weddings, as well as the one month birthday of baby boys. The rice is cooked for 13+ hours and is considered quite a delicacy. We were lucky enough to receive not one, but two boxes of sticky rice to celebrate two of our coworkers' baby boys' one month birthdays. We say both "Congratulations" and "Thanks"!
