Shopping in Flushing @ Corner 28

141DC46B-B4A5-4983-9498-E58C3943F368I went to swim in the morning, 9am on the dot. The pool wasn’t crowded at all. I had the lane to myself till the 18th lap. I was out of the building and into my car by 10am. No complain.

Driving into heart of Flushing at that hour was already slow. I sat in the traffic on Maple Avenue for a bit longer. As I waited for the traffic light to turn on Main Street, the SUV to my left parked first to toward the Main Street left, I took it immediately and feeling lucky.

Putting a meal on the table isn’t a piece of cake, especially during the holidays. The shops are always chaotic and overly crowded. This is the first time that I shopped in Flushing, a little Chinatown in Queens during the Chinese New Year. Hmmm actually it’s the new year eve.

把菜饭放到桌子上 并不容易,尤其是在假日期间。这是我十几年来第一次在法拉盛 – 皇后区的一个小唐人街 -在 中国新年期间在购物。其实是除夕

I like to buy the meat at Corner 28 but never seen the line queuing out side. It’s unreal. I past the end of the line, then stopped dead, asking “don’t tell me you’re on line for the meat?”

Guess I was right, they’re. I took a little video and went to buy the meat at ChaoZhou Restaurant instead. It’s almost empty at that hour.

While waiting to pay, a Mom said to me, “we’re buying the same stuff just different day ..” I agree. But again, how many more new years we get to spend with our children – Kev is already in college and Pumpkin is off this September? This may be the last one .. before we get to spend with them again. I’m happy that they’re independent but a little nostalgia at the same time .. ..

等待支付时,一个排在我的前门妈妈对我说,“我们买同样的东西只是不同的一天…” 我同意. 但是还有多少新年我们可以和孩子们一起过: 小宝已经上了大学, 小妹今年九月也去了 .. .. 所以人再多也无所谓. 我很高兴孩子们都独立的, 只是非常留恋他们在身边的亲密感 .. ..
