As CNY approaches

The Chinese New Year (CNY) is on the rise now. I can feel it as I go for my morning round of the two market places I go to – the Jelutong market and the stalls behind Chowrasta market. New Year clothes of brilliant red and pink steal the limelight as we walk in front of stalls selling clothes meant for CNY.

There are also stalls selling fireworks and CNY decorations. Business is really good for these stalls. The CNY biscuits are on sale too. These are for those who want to get a taste of CNY delicacies before the real day.

The crowd seems to get bigger with each passing day before CNY which falls on the 14th day of February. It will take us quite some time to get pass the crowd on our way to buy things at the market. If you have read my post entitled ‘Down Ipoh Lane’ you will see how many stalls there are in Jelutong market.

The CNY songs keep blaring from stalls selling VCD’s and DVD’s add merriness to the morning atmospheres at these two places.
