Japanese New Year at Liang Court’s Meidi-ya

You must check out Meidi-ya.  It was lovely during Christmas and is now filled with New Year goodies.  The Japanese patrons were buying mainly stuff for steam boat.  Everything was just so pretty and I always see new enticing products here.  It’s mostly window shopping for me as some of the items are really expensive.  I find grocery shopping in a nice supermarket very relaxing and fun especially when there are new displays and exciting food items you’ve never seen before.

There was a long queue for the beautifully packaged new year steamboat stuff.

There’s even a kind of sticky chewy mochi like thing used in the Japanese steamboat. Please correct me if I got it wrong.

The mochi for the steamboat is so pretty. Japanese packaging always makes me swoon.

The expensive fruit section. The most beautiful display of fruit you’ll ever see in Singapore. In a supermarket at least.

Was telling my cousin how expensive the fruit can get and wanted to show her.

Strawberries air flown from Japan. I think prices have been lowered since the Tsunami.

White eggs. They look too good to crack.
