home for the holidays: the imaginist in hong kong
The final exams are just over. And Christmas is coming! It is a great time for us to gather together, stroll around the city and enjoy our holidays! Viva holidays! Merry Christmas!
When Lauren invited me to guest blog about holiday traditions in Hong Kong, Christmas decorations immediately sprang up to my mind. When it comes to Christmas, my family is quite "traditional Chinese" -- we do not have any fest to celebrate this western festival and just stay at home like an ordinary day. But sometimes, like most locals, we do go out to see the Christmas decorations, esp. at Tsim Sha Tsui. Although, except Victoria Harbour, I am not really a fan of the Christmas decorations in various shopping malls or on the road, it is one of my great ways to experience the Christmas vibe.
Night at Victoria Harbour. Actually you can see this brightly lit harbor all year, but the difference is Christmas-themed decor is put up on the buildings.
I feel peaceful every time I look at this scene at night with the gentle breeze blowing over my face. Winter, one of the best seasons to eat ice-cream. By the way, the tallest building is where Batman leapt off in The Dark Knight.
A family was shooting photos with a tripod. Sweet and warm!
A Mobile Softee is always around the corner of a tourist spot like Victoria Harbour. Go grab an ice-cream if you see it. Yum!
By the way!!!!!
