Every year right after the new year passes by, the Chinese will be busy preparing for Chinese New Year (CNY). It is just around the corner. This year it is set to be on the 5th of February 2019. I am a Chinese Malaysian and I do celebrate that day too.
To prepare for that day, before the day arrives, I would usually make sure to get myself new clothing from head to toe. To get this new clothes, I usually get a buddy to come with me. I have to admit that I am very bad at choosing clothes. Without somebody to decide or simply choose them for me, it may probably take more than a day just to even choose one part of them. Too much of what ifs in my mind to narrow down the options when choosing them. Sadly this is one of my weakness, choosing. So one to two months before the special day arrive, I will make sure to hunt down those outfits. If getting them one or two weeks before that day, clothing shops will surely be packed with people and choices to choose from will be limited. I will normally get 1 polo t-shirt, 1 t-shirt, 1 formal shirt and at least 1 long pants or trousers. After getting them is just to wait for that day to arrive.
