The Rabbit Makes an Early Appearance at NTUC for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is a month away and the rabbit and Chinese New Year goodies have made their appearance when I checked out the NTUC Xtra at Nex. New Year is not here yet and Christmas is not yet over, but in 2011 Chinese New Year falls on the 3rd and 4th of February so it’s not that far away.

Chinese New Year is when all the shops apart from Mustafa and prata stalls, will be closed, some for 2 days and some for 2 weeks. So, it’s good to stock what you need at least a week before.
