Ok I guess the post title is a bit of a give-away… but if you walk past a flower stall in Hong Kong today, you’ll notice that their displays have tripled and quadrupled in size!
It is Mother’s Day and it must be the busiest day of the year (together with Valentine’s Day). All flower shops were open very early this morning and I could see lots of florists adding finishing touches to the bouquets.
Some looked really nice, but if I am honest, the majority is just very cheesy and kitschy. But nonetheless, very expensive. I’m sure you’ll have to depart from a 500 HKD note minimum today, if you want to pick up a few flowers for your mum… so be quick, the shops might soon be empty/closed!
Note to myself: I need to take a picture of these shops on a normal day, so you know what I mean when I say the displays have exploded!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
