Now that Christmas and New Year is over, the decorations are removed (every day I find more and more tree needles in our elevator, proof that one more Christmas tree has died…) and one would think, that’s it. It’s quiet now. No carnival or Fasching decorations are being put up, because this is not celebrate here in Hong Kong.
