New Year Wishes

I went out running this morning, wanting to see what the city is like on the last day of 2016.  In Tsim Sha Tsui near the Cultural Centre, I found that many wishes for the new year are displayed.  

Here is one which is so stereotypical of a “Hong Kong Girl” that I suspect someone is trying to be ironic.  But may be not. 

There are some that are quite sweet, such as one written by a couple to their future selves. 

There are many written by children, refreshingly honest. 

There are, of course, many that reflect the realities of Hong Kong, such as the DSE - the open examination dreaded by many secondary school students. 

Happy New Year!
