*this place was open but i couldn't resist these announcements.
While I was walking to Causeway Bay, I noticed that almost every other shop is closed to celebrate the new year in Hong Kong. I loved all the decorative signs they posted outside their shops. It's something of a "be back later" sign you'd see in the states. Of course, I could be completely wrong as I can't read chinese but some included dates so I *think* I'm on the right track. It was quiet in a usually busy area of hong kong (times square) which, just for a few minutes, felt like new york. I did get to see one new year blessing at Lane Crawford which was great. I love all the dancing and drums. It's so festive!
