gong hei fat choy

Hong Kong Island CNY 2012

it’s the year of the dragon here in hong kong! happy chinese new year. there was a 23 minute fireworks display over victoria harbour planned – i had my camera all set up to capture it on video just like the countdown to jan. 1, 2012 but lo and behold, they moved the venue further to the east – more towards the front of wan chai and tsim sha tsui east so i was only able to see 1/2 of the fireworks on display. it wasn’t worth filming! the photo above, however, is how the evening looked just prior to the fireworks show – a cold and relatively clear winter night here in asia’s world city. click on the image above for the full-res photo. feel free to download it if you like it. have a great dragon year everyone. gong hei gong hei fat choy!
