"I go to the market once a week to buy mackerel for my cats," I say to Stephanie Sung (right pix), winner of MasterChef Singapore 2014. "The price always fluctuates. How can I know when prices will be cheaper?"
"Avoid buying sea fish on and around the 15th day of every Chinese lunar month," says Stephanie with a cigarette clamped in her mouth. "When the moon is shining, the fishes avoid swimming near the water's surface. Since less fishes are caught by the fishermen, they sell at higher prices to the wholesalers."
