Chinese New Year knick-knack stalls have sprung up like mushrooms in Sai Wan Ho over the past couple of weeks.
This lady is selling jade animals (probably fake) to wear to counterbalance various fung shui influences. It is now the year of the tiger, so it is recommended that certain incompatible creatures, such as monkeys, for example, wear a jade pig. Being a pig myself, I have nothing to worry about. Tigers and pigs are compatible, and this year should be ''plain sailing'' for me, according to the asronomer of the Discovery Bay ferry magazine.
Happy New Year of the Tiger!
