Eaton Kuih Centre (GPS: 5.3929, 100.3062 and 5.39252, 100.30605) and is a shop specialising in making the meal sets for full-moon deliveries. Occupying shophouses on both sides of Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim, Eaton is the place to go to order the Full Moon sets.
It is customary among Malaysian Chinese, particularly the Straits Chinese community in Penang, to present Full Moon sets to their family members, relatives and friends to celebrate the first month of their new born. The items in a Full Moon set comprises the Ang Koo, Curry Chicken and Nasi Kunyit. These items are traced to local folk tradition of making offerings to the Datuk Kong, or local guardian spirit, as thanksgiving that the infant survived its first month.
At Eaton Kuih Centre, you can purchase the Full Moon sets as well as the various items separately. People often go there to make large orders for their child's Full Moon celebration.

Thank you for visiting my website. I started it in 2003, and today it has over twenty thousand pages of information. My name is Timothy Tye. You can call me Tim. I have been writing my website full time since 1 November 2007, and I am enjoying every moment of it. I write my website to satisfy my own curiosity, but I am glad if the information is useful to you.
