List created to help find stores open during the festive period

The list was compiled by Jimmy Seah, a Happycow ambassador who regularly leaves reviews about vegetarian food in Singapore on the platform, Happycow.

Seah told Mothership that he started doing this in 2016 as a lot of restaurants are closed during Chinese New Year and he wanted to make it easier for vegetarians to find food during this period.

He obtains the opening hours during Chinese New Year through the social media pages of the vegetarian stores and updates the list every year.
