Trip back for Chinese New Year Celebration

My trip back yesterday was a smooth one. I was expecting a long and slow drive back as everyone was taking leave and also rushing back to their hometown.

Got up 5am plus to start our journey as last year we left a bit later and the traffic was heavy and was a pace of average 70km per hour and it took us about 6 hrs where a good smooth trip will usually take about 5 hrs.

Our first stop for breakfast was on of the RnR (rest and recreation) area along the highway.

Food to buy and if you noticed, early in the morning people were already eating rice with dishes to select from.
