today, including 700,000 foreigners.

It's Chinese New Year's Eve today!
Chinese New Year's eve and the markets in Singapore have
been opened 24 hours for the past two days. The Chinese,
as well as the other races, have been stocking up on food
items for the past few days - buying all they can carry,
taking the things home, resting for an hour or so, and
then scurrying back to the markets to buy more things.

This morning the
markets remain open till noon, when everyone will take a
long break away from work to prepare for the big reunion
feast tonight and the Chinese New Year celebrations the
next few days. All coffeeshops around the island, and
almost every other business also close at about the same
time for the next few days. The shops may start opening,
perhaps as early as Sunday. Till then, people in search of
food have to depend on fast-food restaurants, such as
McDonald's and KFC, to satisfy their hunger. Of course,
7-Eleven and Cheers remain open 24 hours as well, together
with the hotels.
