Going Nuts over it.

If you visit a chinese home during the Lunar New Year, you'll be served with lots of tidbits to eat. People will be catching up with one another while munching on stuff. Melon seeds, pistachios, different assortment of cookies (eg pineapple tarts, peanut cookies, cornflakes cookies, etc), sweets, assortment of pickled or preserved fruits and the list goes on.

Here you can see that this man is selling pistachios like hot cakes. It was the 3rd time he was re-stocking his pistachios.

The different nuts and seeds were selling like hot cakes.


Aunt who was with me bought 1kg of it. Actually, it seems like the prices in Chinatown is really cheap.

That's about NZ$!.00/Kg - I don't know what we pay, but I know it's HEAPS more than that! Lucky you.
