Happy Chinese New Year

Or Kung Hei Fat Choy as they say!

I am off to Perth and Margaret River for a weeks holiday over Chinese New Year, leaving in about 30 minutes in fact if I can possibly get my husband to leave the office.

I was hoping to finish the Anne Klein dress before I went but it's not going to happen. It's about 95% done, but the last 5% is fiddly and annoying, hopefully I will feel rejuvenated in a week and have the motivation to just do it.

As you can imagine Chinese New Year is a big deal here in Hong Kong and there are decorations everywhere celebrating the coming year of the tiger - these pictures are from a mall in Central;




A closer view


Closer still - they are made of flowers!

Whether you are celebrating Chinese New Year or Valentines Day (yes it's a bumper weekend for retailers here!), enjoy!

Margaret River will be just so peaceful after the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Happy New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year, bon voyage! Gorgeous flowers there at Central. That was the mall one stop from my flat at Admiralty. Oh, how I miss it there!

It's like the Rose Bowl parade where all the floats are made from flowers. Gorgeous. Have a wonderful holiday.

I am a year of the Tiger and so excited!!! 2010 will be my year! (Although I don't actually expect anything as 2009 really was my year.)

They're gorgeous! They remind me of the Rose Bowl Parade floats, where every square inch must be covered in organic materials - most of which is flowers.
