Today is eve of the CNY eve and tomorrow we all have reunion dinner. One tradition is markets open till morning tomorrow or rather stalls open till their goods are all sold. I remember very excited of this day when I go to night market with the family and sometime midnight too. It was lots of fun. Bring the marketing home and pack them or even prepare them for the next day of cooking.

Was quite sad to find the old Tanglin Halt market like this at 11pm

These poor wet market stall owners work hard to earn money to put their children to unis.

They do this so their children will not inherit this shithole biz from them.

Bad tradition. Too bad.

Their graduate children work for supermarkets and leave boh tak cheh (cant study type) ah nehs pinoys and jiuhu kia to do the shit low end low wages jobs.

This is call progress.

In order to mask their greediness for money, the PAP had killed many traditions; they now blame on on-line stores, but never blamed themselves for driving costs, like rentals, etc...UP, UP & AWAY!.

It is YOUR FAULT, you don't go out & buy, to keep the markets open...it is your fault you voted for these people, who killed the 'goose" that laid the 'eggs' ( never mind golden)..you Singaporeans, deserve what you get.

Everything is quietly dying or decaying...

I think its a transition period for us. Young people are not going to the wet market to buy fresh vegetables or fish, if they cook they will prefer the supermarket. I also notice its much quieter CNY the last few years.

Mark my words , CNY will become more and more quiet as locals are swamped by immigrants.
Christmas is now the noisiest festival and people may even think this is a christian country or even a province of the Philippines as tagalog is the loudest noise heard in trains,followed by some Indian dialect.

It’s been called Spring Festival for generations so you can go elsewhere to stir your shit.
I don't remember the alien word chunjie when i was a kid. Now chunjie is fast replacing xinnian here to refer to chinese new year.

A sinkie already complained to the straits times some years back that ch8 news and variety shows started to use chunjie, saying that only the northern tiongs use chunjie for CNY.
