Visiting a Lunar New Year fair

Despite the cold weather in Hong Kong in the past few days, Hong Kong people remain enthusiastic in visiting Lunar New Year fairs with their family, including young children and the elderly. This afternoon, my wife and I also visited the Sha Tin Lunar New Year Fair to buy flowers for the Chinese New Year.

The weather is quite unpredictable this winter. It was warm in early January, but the temperature dropped drastically in the latter half of the month, even hitting a 59-year record low. Freezing rain and frost appeared in some areas of the New Territories. Some florists at the fair told me that they were worried about the sales, as both the flower quality and the flowering time were affected. I love gardening and fully understand the hardship of the farming community. Festive flowers are the result of a whole year of hard work by florists. I hope that you will give them more support.

It will still be cold in the next few days. Besides giving blessings to our family and friends, we should care more about people in need so that everyone can have a loving and happy Chinese New Year.
