as they say in chinese, ren shan ren hai....

Around or less than 2 weeks to go to the lunar new year, everyone's visiting chinatown to get the feel of chinese new year.



The crowds are there. and thanks to changing weather patterns, it's windy and cool. no sweat walking aronud! One of the must eat is going to be featured in tomorrow's post. there's a queue at that shop! even Bloomberg News agency has an index based on it. Guess what's it?
