Chinese New Year Fair 2011 - Victoria Park, Hong Kong

What else did we do during Chinese New Year holiday?
Every year, we brave the mad crowd and go to the Chinese New Year Fair in Victoria Park, Causeway Bay.

This year was no exception.
Men, women, kids, babies...ready to spend some good money on super silly stuff, into the fair we went.

There were some seriously cute babies in fair, here's one of them.

Hi, little bunny!

She said "feel free to touch, it's ok if you don't buy".
"Go ahead, feel 'em"
We didn't want to. Heheh.

If only those were real, if only those are mine...(not the $10 coins, but I wouldn't mind them either. One million isn't one million if it's ten dollars short, right?

Lotsa Angry Birds inspired merchandise...

...I sucked at the game, I wouldn't buy the bird.
I am a sore loser :D

Ahem. Stay safe.

iPhone apps cushions...

...they're sold at HK$100 each! WTH!
A facebook cushion would be cute though...

Finally, something that's quite Chinese New Year-ish.

Enough silliness, here's some we walked through the Chinese New Year flower market section...

...I bet the vendors were pretty pissed off by these shameless photo-takers who didn't buy anything (ahem, I was one of them, the shameless photo-takers, I just went to the next level by taking photo of the photo-takers :D)

We also went to Tsim Sha Tsui's harbour side to snap some tacky but festive Chinese New Year decor...

...and to treat you to some fashion sightings.
Do you like the pose of the lady in pink behind us? Fierce, no?

...and final fashion sighting for you...

China chic? You like?
How about the winged adidas, the chanel bag and the curly guy.
You dig?

Heheheh. Again, Kung Hey Fat Choy!
Stay Fab!

Oh goodness! CNY looks really commercial and tacky ;-) I do love the flower market though.
Your little family looks great :)
