    Chinese New Year Light Up @ Chinatown

    Jalan Jalan in Chinatown with Chloe again last Thursday. Went there because we heard that there are 600 stalls selling CNY products. Being cheated d. Where got 600 stalls? At most mar 200 stalls only. And the things that they sell are very expensive. SGD$6.00 per 500 grams of 'Gua ci' (Sun Flower seeds), crazy!
    The main purpose we went there is to check the prices out. This coming CNY going to be my third CNY in SG. For the past two years, the prices dropped like crazy 2-3 days before the first day of Chinese new year. Taiwan 'Mua chi' price at SGD$1.80 per 100 grams at first, ended up you only need to pay SGD$3.00, then the seller will give you one plastic bag, just fill the plastic bag up with the "mua chi" on your own!!! You can grab as many as you want, as long as they can be fitted into the plastic bag. I won't buy anything there now, will wait till last minute. lol What to do, 'Giam Siap" ma...

    Are you gonna be spending CNY in SG, gal? I remember all those CNY I spent alone in Oz, just like any other ordinary working days. :( And I never bothered to stock up on CNY snacks too when I'm by myself.
