Yeah that it. You'll find it around in supermarkets esp Cold storage. They might not have it all the time though. They sell quite big ones compared to some other places.

It is really common to find on sale everywhere around Chinese New Year, but disappears after that. You might find some in the garden places on Thompson Road etc.

I see them at any time at the cold storage supermarket at the plants section, I guess it depends on stock. I'll have a look next time I go shopping for grocery.
