We have many new rings and ready-made jewellery as in the pictures on eBay that make excellent Christmas presents. However, we only have about 100 items in this shop, as apposed to around 5,000 in the main store.
Well, it aint as you think! The festive season is best cold – at least frosty outside. Everyone loves snow, but icy can be beautiful too. One does not miss something until it’s lost.
Hong Kong is not warm this time of year, 12 to 14 degrees, can be more – but with little heating, it feels freezing inside. MiMi and I use an electric blanket. Outside is better, wrapped up and usually dry and sunny. Noels and carols are everywhere – but it feels hollow. Merry, not magical - I love a cosy, quaint atmosphere.
Christmas somewhere hot, like the Philippines is no better. It’s nice to get out of the cold, but if you live in the Far East, most of the year is scorching. Mainly were basking in air-con. You see, we can boil in the sun anytime – Christmas should be different, special.
However, here in Hong Kong we enjoy British festive TV, wine, turkey and mince pies. That’s if you’re a gwelio, a foreign devil. I guess its nostalgia - my friends down under prefer throwing king prawns on a pool-side barbe.
Chinese New Year is more fun - especially as it brightens the new year lull. In 2016 it’s on 8th February - Year of the Monkey. Sure to rock! For more on the Year of the Monkey click the link.
