Chinese New Year is coming soon… 7th February 2008, WOW! Now it’s February… It feels like just yesterday we welcomed 2008. In less than one week, only few days, Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year will come. -.-” Guess what?!??!?! I have no CNY mood! I don’t feel any. In the passed years, we would be busy spring cleaning but this year… Haven’t start at all! Oh dear… I guess we will only start on the eve’s *LOL*
Even the market is quiet…
Went to Kenyalang, lots of cars, hard to find parking but not many people. Most people came and left empty handed or only with small bags instead of big bags like it used to. It’s not sardine packed also, you can move around easily. Kenyalang is already so “cold”… The rest of the places would be worst!
Went to Padungan, the Chinese New Year Bazaar, I took part in it last year hahaha… It’s my first and last time, no more! Hahaha… It’s pathetic this year! Only few stalls, it ended at Tao, unlike previous years that ended way after the police station which is another block next to Tao. Not many people buying things, many came to see, see, look, look, walk, walk only.
As usual there’s performance every night on stage. Trying to get some mood from it but… Still cannot… Still no CNY mood -.-” Oh dear! What’s wrong with me? Apparently, I’m not the only one. Many of my friends and even my parents also feel this way. Where’s the CNY spirits? Where’s the mood?
The famous cat is dressed in Chinese costume and surrounded by hanging lanterns and colourful lightings are installed along Padungan area.
Many people at Boulevard and always long queue at the hypermarket counter. At least people are buying a trolley or two of goods back. Maybe everyone shopped here that’s why the CNY Bazaars are so quiet. We managed to shop a trolley 😛 However, it’s not all CNY goodies, mostly are just the everyday groceries.
Do you feel the Spring is coming? Do you have the mood? I still don’t have any mood… Will be baking some cookies today to cultivate the mood, not sure it works or not? *LOL*
