Chinese New Year display on our table

Last night, I went to Unimart to shop for fruits to be displayed on our table. I didn't know that a lot of people were doing some last minute shopping. The lines were pretty long because not all the counters were open... boo!

If you have been following me on IG (@xoxoMrsMartinez), you have probably seen the fruit display on my dining table, if not you can view it after the break...

10 kinds of fruits

I know it should be 12 to represent the 12 months but I was only able to buy 10. Pineapple is very important because it symbolizes wealth and luck but it's not available.. bummer, right? So, I bought all the round-shaped fruits that I can find hahaha

READ update below!!!

grapes, apple, lemon, orange,  pomelo

kiat kiat, pear, ponkan, mango, pomelo, papaya

Chinese New Year's eve is tonight. I still have time to go to the supermarket/grocery to buy pineapple and another fruit to add to my fruit display ; )
