HCM City presents Tet offering to nation founders

Ho Chi Minh City's top leaders on Tuesday offered the traditional Tet cake to the Hung Kings, the legendary founders of the nation, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year.

The delegation of the local Party, People's Council and Government is led by Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Dinh La Thang.

The offerings were chosen among the best and most delicious cakes in a recent Tet cake-making contest.

Tet cake, a round glutinous rice cake, is a traditional cake Vietnamese southerners enjoy during T?t. It is considered a variant of Ch?ng cake, the square glutinous rice cake, which is more popular in the northern region.

The Tet cake offering ceremony is one of HCM City's annual pre- T?t activities, reflecting the tradition of "Drinking water remembering its source".
