Waiting in the wings

reindeer 3

Chinese New Year in Hong Kong is a good enough reason to pull out all the stops for decorations and entertainment. Many of the better shopping plazas and malls put on huge displays with traditional dances thrown in. In City Plaza at Tai Koo Shing on Hong Kong Island, there were many quite garish reindeer that were probably left over from Christmas but served as a fine backdrop to dancers celebrating the Year of the Snake. This golden fellow with his outrageous antlers seems to be anticipating something rather special as he eyes the microphone. Maybe in the middle of the night when the place is empty, he and his mates come to life, singing and dancing for each other in true Disney fantasy style.
