The mood of CNY is in the air

You can always feel it - the approach of Chinese New Year.

The roadside stalls are selling CNY decorative items.

'Three for ten ringgit!" shouted one vendor as I passed his stall.

Ribbon cakes and arrow-head fries are already on sale although CNY only falls on 3rd February.

Soon you can see 'nian gao' - something like the Malay dodol being displayed on the stalls. This food is always offered to the Kitchen Dewa to bribe him so that he will report good things about the family.

CNY songs are also being played in some of the stalls at the market place.

I like to experience the cool breeze of the morning when the northerly wind is blowing.
