The Che Kung Temple.

10 02 2008

In Chinese lunar new year, we visit parent, relatives and friends to celebrate the new year. This new year visiting period will start from the 1st day of the new year and continue around 1-2 weeks. There is one day not suitable for visiting, it is the 3rd day of the new year. In tradition, this special day will likely or higher probability to have arguments with the others when you go out. In Hong Kong, many people go to the Che Kung Temple to worship the God “Che Kung” and wish that he gives them good luck in this year. I visited the temple today and it was really crowed. I bought two pinwheels there afterward. Why pinwheel ? it has a special meaning in Chinese too. The pinwheel spins smoothly in the wind, in our word, your life in this year will work smoothly without obstacles, sounds great! ha.

ice-cream car in Hong Kong.

28 01 2008

When you visit Hong Kong, you may see this car on the street selling ice-cream.
In old days, there were not so many places selling ice-cream, the people in my age should understand how happy to see it on the street and successfully asked your mum or dad to buy you an ice-cream. The ice-cream is vanilla favor as I remember. I think nowadays there should be more favors available. This company is the only approved and the last one by Hong Kong government for selling/making ice-cream in car. If this company is coming to the end, you will not see any ice-cream on the street, so you should take a photo with them now 🙂

A very touching animation. Nice story, music and drawing. Perfect but sad ending.
