Places to Buy New Year's stuff in Chinatown

China Pearl always creates a magical world for Chinese New Year. I'm really into it. It feels kind of like a Chinese Christmas where you are transported into some sort of Chinese Fairy Land where the Magical Lion lives. Of course these stories do not exist really bit the Santa Claus legend isn't that old and the whole Santa's Village and taking pictures with a guy in a beard is really new.

My friend says the set up is more for Jook Sings and Americans...well..... THAT"S ME!

Another cool place is the Pop up Flower Market at the China Trade Center. It's more traditional like. Your meat and bones Chinese New Year gifts and wares.

I walked over to both today.

Here is a video.
