Hong Kong Chinese New Year Flower Market - 行花市
After years of watching Hong Kong's Chinese New Year Flower Market on TV, we finally got to be part of it physically this year. It was a very awesome experience as the atmosphere definitely helped hiked the excitement of the arrival of the Rabbit New Year. There were numerous flower markets all over Hong Kong and we were honored to visit 3 different ones in a span of two days (or should I say nights) as we only arrived at the flower market after midnight.

Look at the variety of flowers available for sale!

大吉大利! This tree signifies Prosperity

White Daffodils - extremely fragrant!!!!

Multi-colored Chrysanthemum

Hongkees believe that buying a mini windmill (风车) would help change one's luck for the better in the upcoming new year.

Paper windmills

Rabbit and flower themed windmill

Big mandarin oranges to symbolize Big Prosperity


Orchids have become increasingly popular in Hong Kong.

My fave drink - Malted Vitasoy - this was served hot which made it even tastier.

Black sesame Put Zhai Gou (缽仔糕)

All sorts of Chinese New Year snacks

Multi-flavored Glutinous Rice Balls
