Chinese New Year Shopping


With the Chinese New Year just barely two weeks away, shopping malls and markets are packed with shoppers. I haven't been to Chinatown yet but there is no doubt that the place will be crowded with locals buying the Spring festival goodies and tourists enjoying the hustle and bustle of the place.

There is certainly no let-up on consumer spending as department stores are again having their big sale just before the Chinese New Year. Clothes, shoes and bags would top the list of purchases as it's customary to have new clothes and related new stuff to usher in the new year. Even fitness equipment stores are having their sale to encourage people to get back in shape for the new year. Have you done your shopping yet?

  9. Mei Teng, don't need to shop for Chinese New Year? How come?

    SK, I agree that shopping can be tiring esp when you haven't got the things you are looking for. Happy shopping some more..

    KS, is it a good idea for last-minute shopping for cookies? I imagine the good ones would have been sold out by then.

    Roast pork sounds yummy..
