Needless to say, CNY visitations are not complete without mandarin oranges, and nothing is more dreadful than arriving at your relatives’ house to bai nian 拜年 only to realise that you’ve forgotten them. Retailing at $18.80 for a limited time only, the 24 pieces of mandarin oranges also comes with a RISATORP basket. Here’s a tip – simply place the basket filled with oranges by the front door of your home, and you’ll always remember to bring a pair with you before you leave the house.

Determined to impress the in-laws this CNY? Sign up for Flower Arrangement Workshops on 4 and 5 Jan or pick up some Bedroom Fengshui Tips the week after, and you’re all set.

Swing by for other in-store activities like Chinese Calligraphy Painting and the ever-auspicious Lion Dance that are available for one and all.
