We are lucky in Vancouver that there are a lot of Asian cultures. And I can’t believe Chinese New Year is so early this year!! It will be on Feb 3rd.
We were at Aberdeen Centre Mall today and saw a lot of sidewalk merchants having tables and tables of goodies for sale. I particularly like this table as they sell all sorts of auspicious decorations for Chinese New Year. It is definitely very festive and reminded me of how much I miss the Chinese New Year Festivity in Asia :)
With gold this cheap, even I can afford to get a pocket full of golden nuggets :D
Not to mention that there are festive snacks that you can get, like this table selling the hand made “Dragon Beard” candy. This table draws a big crowd, too!
If you are into Chinese New Year countdown, you can join the crowd on Feb 2 at Aberdeen Centre to welcome the Year of the Rabbit!
