A happy Lunar New Year to all our Chinese readers!
I recalled when I was a kid, during the Lunar New Year period, I will be super excited. My mum will take me and my sibling to go shopping and we will buy two sets of new clothing (predominantly red) so that we can wear them during the first two days of the Lunar New Year (In Singapore, we get two days off for Lunar New Year. China, Hong Kong and Taiwan get different days off). Occasionally, we even got new shoes as well to go along with the outfit. And sometimes, new bags and carriers. You get the flow.
Well it wasn’t that we didn’t get to have any new clothes throughout the rest of the year. We did, and my mum would sometimes sew them for us (they were so pretty!) and I would get to parade around
