Huge rubber duck in Hong Kong Harbour

You might have seen it on the news already, Hong Kong has a very special visitor. A 16 meter tall yellow rubber duck is floating in Victoria Harbour and it did not just attract media from all over the world, but also thousands of Hong Kongers and tourists. We also wanted to look at this piece of art created by the Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, but it’s not an easy task. Although everybody can go and visit the duck, it is celebrated like a pop star. We almost couldn’t get through to it, as there were hundreds or even thousands of people surrounding it taking pictures.

Fortunately it still stays in Hong Kong until June 6th, so we hop to catch a time with less people.

Japan Earthquake

Today a huge earthquake followed by a tsunami happened in Japan. We heard the news quite early and kept checking for updates while we were in the office. In the afternoon my mum called and asked me if we are ok. She knows that Hong Kong is far from Japan but she still wanted to make sure that everything is alright. For everyone: We are ok! Hong Kong is really far away from Japan and we didn’t feel anything. We are really lucky here, Taiwan and the Philippines protect us from strong typhoons and we are also not near any earthquake hit region. Our business will continue as usual and there are no delays in shipment. I really hope the people in Japan are safe and recover quickly. These news are just too horrible. 🙁
