Busy mar­ket a show high­light

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Halls 3 and 4 at the Show­grounds will be trans­formed into a lively mar­ket place with nearly 200 spe­cial­ist stalls of­fer­ing tra­di­tional New Year foods, arts and crafts, deer prod­ucts, herbal medicines, toys and videos from the Far East plus a huge va­ri­ety of other prod­ucts and ser­vices.

There will be an ex­hi­bi­tion of cars from BMW and MINI, demon­stra­tions of Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy, brush paint­ing, kite mak­ing, pa­per cut­ting and the chance to win two re­turn trips to Hong Kong / China / Tai­wan cour­tesy of Cathay Pa­cific.

An­other popular at­trac­tion is the chance to sam­ple many dif­fer­ent ex­otic and tra­di­tional Asian del­i­ca­cies from over 50 out­door hot food stalls. Th­ese del­i­ca­cies come from China and many dif­fer­ent parts of Asia where eth­nic Chi­nese had pre­vi­ously set­tled be­fore em­i­grat­ing to New Zealand.

You can try Can­tonese, Shang­hai, Sichuan, Tai­wanese, Viet­namese, Thai, Sin­ga­po­r­ian, Malaysian and Ja­panese flavours and for the less ad­ven­tur­ous even Euro­pean main­stream good­ies as well as spe­cialised veg­e­tar­ian food.

To quench your thirst, there will be a wide range of drinks avail­able in­clud­ing cof­fee, fresh fruit juices, nov­elty ice creams, bub­ble tea drinks and smooth­ies.

As­ton­ish­ing: You haven’t seen any­thing like the skill lev­els of this year’s per­form­ers.
