Chinese New Year 2012 - Queueing for Bak Kwa in Chinatown

Bak Kwa is also known as rougan is a dried BBQ meat mostly made from pork. It is one of the most popular snack in Singapore and every Chinese New Year, we can see long queue at popular famous Bak Kwa Stalls/Shops.

Almost every Singaporean know this famous Bak Kwa Stall in Chinatown. If you think only two girls are queueing in the above photo, you are so wrong. Some waited for many hours just to buy the Bak Kwa.

It is a yearly ritual during Chinese New Year for most Singaporean to buy Bak Kwa from this famous stall Lim Chee Guan. It is not cheap, it costs aboutS$50 per kg for this delicious Bak Kwa. Some bought the bak kwa for themselves while others bought as gifts for relatives, friends or business friends.

Last week, I saw the queue was so long till it reached to some alley. Take note that some brought along stools to sit and queue lol. OMG, I wont queue that long, can always buy from other shops cause I think eating the bak kwa will be bbq in such a hurried to meet demands wont taste as nice as normal days.

Will only buy from this famous stall maybe after the first week of chinese new year hahaha cause we have 15 days of chinese new year to celebrate. :)
