So that you can beat the crowds and actually be able to find parking. You confirm get dragged out of bed at some ungodly hour of the morning to teman your parents 'cause you gotta help to carry everything.

2. Comparing prices at all the different supermarkets

When it comes to stocking up for CNY, your parents won't play play one. Every supermarket will have their own special promos and, somehow they'll get their hands on a copy of all the catalogues.

They'll be busy comparing prices for the must-have groceries and snacks, circling and ticking the ones they need. Oh, don't forget the coupons too.

3. Pakat-ing with relatives to buy in bulk
