Today is the Eve of Chinese New Year!

Due to Covid-19 related international shipping issues, the shop will be closed until the pandemic is under control. Please take care of yourself and stay safe! Meanwhile you can still browse sold items and the rest of the site.

Today is Chinese New Year's Eve in China/Taiwan/Hong Kong as well as Singapore (same time zone UST+8 ).祝大家狗年身体健康,财源滚滚!

It's a half-day for schools here in Singapore and most workplaces will also only work half the day with some businesses already closed in advance today. I have just come back from the supermarket for the last time because I needed to stock up on groceries as everything will be closed tomorrow. It was crowded and full of people doing last-minute shopping and probably preparing for Reunion Dinner. My mother bought some abalone but I don't know when we will be having it.

I took the above photo while out and about because I was amused by the New Year Special by Tim Ho Wan (添好运), a popular Hong Kong dim sum chain that my mother and I tried out when they first opened here in Singapore. It's a dessert cake sculpted to look like a lucky gold bar made out of water chestnut. I don't think it looks that convincing lol

Tim Ho Wan

I will be busy this week and the next so probably not much blogging from me.
