Euzebio:

I really liked this alcrtie on shopping carts because I have been trying to decide on the type of website I would like to have for my online store. There is so much to know about shopping carts and what will work best for your website. I like to be educated on what is available so when I discuss a website with a developer I have knowledge and direction to my needs to build my store. Thanks for this information and increasing my knowledge on shopping cart options.

Mr Seah, I really like the black and white pituercs. Without colour, I thought I could detect a very genuine rowdiness, a certain purpose and the merriment of the time. Then, Chinese New Year must be the biggest event for every Chinese and I think the shoppers were filled with an earnest desire to buy the best piece of meat, the best flowers be in plastic or fresh, to decorate the house. When I was young, we were very poor and my papa never brought us to Chinatown at all. I remember my papa buying anthuriums, chrysanthemums and carnations once a year and he bought the first flower vase for the family. I was living in Toa Payoh then, and carefully, papa would trim the stems of the flowers he bought from a florist in the market and make sure the arrangement was gentle and flowing. When papa passed away 7 years ago, I decided to hunt down the flower vase but sadly I couldn’t find it. I was determined to get the same vase as a memory of my papa and his artistic skills. I found it on ebay all the way from the States.When we were young, he made flowers from crepe paper and sold them to the British servicemen before I was born. That was what he told us. Neighbours used to call my papa Chor Huay Chek, (in Teochew) the uncle who makes paper flowers.I wish I have a picture of it to show you now. I will show you with pride, the first piece of Tupperware that my papa bought for the family. It is called a floralier. I don’t think I can post the picture here. I will post it on Facebook. That is my fondest memory of Chinese New Year celebration. No Chinatown for us. It was too far for us.Thanks for the memory, Mr Seah.
