My World-Chinese New Year in the Year of the Ox

My part of the world is busy preparing for the coming Chinese New Year in the Year of the Ox. If I do not have time to go round visiting your blog, please forgive cause I will be too busy spring cleaning my home and stock up my fridge cause all the markets, majority of shops and malls will be close on the first two days of chinese new year i.e. 26 and 27th January 2009.
The above photo are waxed ducks which are available only during Chinese New Year.

Chinese sausages. I would cook rice with waxed duck and chinese sausages, yummy, they would smell very delicious.

Everyone busy shopping or browsing through the stalls in chinatown.

Come night, and it would be very very crowded.

If you want to know why these people are queuing at this shop, you can view my food blog.

I can't believe it was already a year since my visit to Singapore. We forgot to take home with us those dried waxed ducks.

Happy new year to you and yours.

No only you, I'm busy stocking up too since the market and shops around my neighbourhood will be close during CNY, and I'm not even chinese. This meme sounds fun, showing off our little island, maybe I'll participate too.
Happy New Year to you!

Yummi, I love Chinese food. I was brought up in Indonesia where I stayed till after WWII, then all Dutch people had to leave Indonesia.
