Chinese New Year 2012 will be celebrated two days from now and I just realized that it's another year for me in SG.
This time of the year is when company workers, especially Chinese, are out for a vacation. Some company closes for the whole week and might have a half-day off on a Friday just before the week of the festival.
This is like Christmas for them. They will have a reunion with their friends and families. Others will have a vacation/tour somewhere else in the world. A lot of preparations to be done especially on food, that's why a lot of Sale on items in every Mall in Singapore is going on this time.
Just last night, at the supermarket, crowds of Chinese are queuing at the counter. Bringing carts of goods for their Chinese New Year 2012 preparation.
What will I do during Chinese New Year?
People are doing the what they call "Spring Cleaning". This is the time to clean their houses. Get rid of old items and replaced it with a new one.
This is also my time to check what's on the garbage bin. This is weird but I always enjoy it a lot. I make it sure that there are items that I can still use and bring it up to our flat.
Believe me or not, last Chinese New Year 2011, I have got a sofa, center table, soccer ball, guitar & kitchen table. These items are all good. It's just that some people don't want to see it inside their house for the next lunar year. So, they throw it away and I scavenge it my way....hehe
