Shopping Rush

A large number of shoppers flock to most of the shopping malls in town these few days. Shopping rush is just as hot as a hot cake.

You can see how the shopping rush was from the above video clip. It was recorded last Saturday. This hyper mart opens from 8 am to 11 pm on Monday to Thursday and from 8 am to 12 midnight on Friday to Sunday during this festive fever.

I went to this hyper mart twice to shop for Chinese New Year stuffs. I bought a full trolley of food, cookies and snacks for each trip and spent few hundred ringgits.

Wang Xiao Er guo nian, yi nian bu ru yi nian. Nian nian nan guo, nian nian guo. These two sentences are in Chinese. Wang Xiao Er was a poor man. He became poorer year by year. However, he had to celebrate Chinese New Year no matter how poor he was. This means that Chinese New Year is a special festival to Chinese.

I am as poor as Wang Xiao Er and have to shop to celebrate Chinese New Year too.

  1. Either you're joking or someone who's very humble (by declaring yourself to be poor).

    As long as we have food to eat and clothes to wear, we are considered "rich" in our own ways!

    Rich or poor, the main thing is still to be happy!

    Wishing All A Happy Chinese New Year!
