Clearing Out Supermarkets Before CNY
This was an interesting sight. As if people were preparing for nuclear war or an alien invasion, this supermarket's produce section was partially cleared out this afternoon. Presumably this was because people were buying enough food for their families' Chinese New Year celebrations, as well as foreigners who needed to stock up, lest they be stuck eating McDonalds for the next few days while the island shuts itself down. Either way, people were streaming out of the market today, all clutching multiple bags of groceries while others proceeded inside to make their runs.
