In preparation of the coming of the rabbit

Chinese New Year is in less than three weeks' time! If it wasn't for the subtle shift in colour scheme (less green, as much red, more gold) I wouldn't have thought Christmas was over at all. In fact, according to the shops here, 'tis the season to be merry from October through to February (leaving a mere 7 non-festive months in which to be hot, instead.)

Aside from the decorations, there are other preparatory goings on.
A spot of shape-shifting (eyelids blinking and ears a-flapping) in Luk Tei Tong (near Mui Wo):

and the appearance of the obligatory well-wishing-cum-promotional posters from local manufacturers: this picture, sadly dispelling the myth that ads on the MTR are changed by elves overnight. (He definitely was not an elf since he displayed an un-elfish lack of festive spirit by refusing to give us the old poster!)

I'll give the answers about Fairwood and Vanguard next time.
