Chrysanthemum flowers like these are usually bought for prayers at home or in a temple. Every first and fifteenth day of the Chinese Lunar month, florists in our HDB estates and in the wet markets and even in the supermarkets will be stocking an abundance of these flowers. As tomorrow is the fifteenth or last day of the Chinese New Year celebrations, there was almost like an endless supply of these flowers of many varieties and colours. Some of the flowers were even dyed.
Colourful buns for prayers. Pineapples for good fortune.
