Chocolate Trail 2013 in Hong Kong – Part 2

We promised more and here it comes. The exhibition Chocolate Trail 2013 in the Hong Kong shopping mall Harbour City is so impressive that we took too many pictures for just one blog post. So here are more pics of the incredible objects which look like chocolate. The promotion’s theme is “Chocolate Mansion”, which is why there are so many pieces of furniture and home decor in a chocolate disguise. Do you have a favourite item?

If you want to see more pictures, check out part 1 of our Chocolate Trail visit.

Chinese New Year in Hong Kong with B.Duck

The cute rubber duck character B.Duck is from Hong Kong and therefore quite present here. There are quite a few shops and products that you can buy. But as all the shopping malls are currently coming up with special promotions for Chinese New Year, we spotted two special exhibitions revolving around the cute duck.

In the district Causeway Bay we saw an installation with two ducks in traditional costumes for Chinese New Year. It looked really cool. We like it when CNY promotions include lots of the traditional Chinese symbols which are important for that holiday. In the picture we took you see the ducks holding golden ingots (gold nuggets which represent money), mandarins and lots of red.

The shopping mall The One in the district Tsim Sha Tsui just started their The One x B.Duck exhibition with a couple of kawaii photo opportunities. It’s all about candy, so you’ll see B.Duck in the candy shop with donuts, lollies and chocolates.

Hello Kitty at McDonald’s Hong Kong

Guys, it’s Hello Kitty everywhere in Hong Kong. McDonald’s Hong Kong has a special Hello Kitty promotion going on at the moment. You can get 4 really cute plush toys for 25 HKD a piece to every meal that you purchase. Hello Kitty is dressed as famous McDonald’s characters, there is Ronald McDonald, Hamburglar, Grimace and Birdie. Of course Hello Kitty looks much cuter than the originals. You see the lovely toys throughout the whole city and there are special TV advertisements, which are running these days. Even the staff at McDonald’s is wearing Hello Kitty shirts, what an adorable work uniform. It made me think about how a work uniform for our team could look like. But there are just so many cute characters in our shop, they would all have to be on the uniform – so it would be very crowded.
