Continuing in the Chinese new year vein, today was the warmest new year's day in HK history... or at least the warmest on record. I wasn't surprised by the news... I knew it was the warmest new year day I'd experienced (turns out that today broke the record set in 1982 -- the year my family moved to HK) ... and the warmth was a big contrast to my memories of Chinese new year being the coldest part of the HK year.
****CORRECTION****According to my mom, it's not the year of the golden pig after all... it's actually the year of the fire pig. I don't know what the significance of that is -- guess I have some research to do.
