Raining season in Hong Kong

It has been raining, I mean downpour of rain. Everywhere we look outside looks like this... It is challenging to even go out to do my business 3 times a day.
So, I have been pretty board at home taking naps.

(Hong Kong weather is so unpredictable and apparently the city weather warnings can be issued for; black rain, direct-hit typhoons, extreme heat, thunderstorms and landslides, but most of time we get sunshine for plenty of the year!)

香港では雨期になりました。ずっと雨が降っているというわけではなく、降る時は外に一歩も出れないぐらいの豪雨になり、とまり、また豪雨になるという繰り返しです。外にトイレ行くのも大変! やはり亜熱帯気候ですね。

Busy neigborhood streets

I forgot how busy city streets are....I have been at the dog camp which is in middle of no where with grass fields all around us.

街の中の道はこんなにも忙しいの忘れてた! 犬キャンプは田舎の草むらの中だったからね。。。

Today we walked around in Shueng Wan, there are a lot of interesting smells in Hong Kong and I always stop to smell the flowers. And in Shueng Wan there are many new interesting galleries! Can you see Yayoi Kusama's Pumpkin behind me? She is my favorite artist!

Dragon Boat Festival

Today is National Holiday in Hong Kong. It is Dragon Boat Festival Day aka Duanwu Festival.  
This ancient event, also known as Tuen Ng Festival, commemorates the death of a popular Chinese national hero, Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in the Mi Lo River over 2,000 years ago to protest against the corrupt rulers. Legend has it that as townspeople attempted to rescue Qu Yuan, they beat drums to scare fish away and threw dumplings into the sea to keep the fish from eating his body.
Picture shows local ladies at the temple this morning with rice dumplings and also local markets selling some rice dumpling wrapped in leafs! 

香港では今日ドラゴンボート祭りで祝日です。ドラゴンボート・フェスティバルは、速さを競うボートレースと伝統的な行事という二つの面を兼ね備えています。このフェスティバルは、端午節(テュン ンー・フェスティバル)としても知られ、今から 2,000年以上前に、当時の腐敗した統治者達に抗議して汨羅江に身を投げた中国の国民的英雄・屈原の死を記念するお祭りです。 言い伝えによれば、村人たちは屈原を救おうと、魚が屈原によりつかないように太鼓を叩き、また魚が屈原の体を食べてしまわないよう川にちまきを放り投げたといいます。

My neighborhood / odd display

We were walking around our neighborhood today and I saw very odd display for woman's clothing boutique. Mannequin with gorilla mask, straw hat, sunglasses and cigarette in the mouth...I hope this is not the trend for this summer....scares me!

今日近所を歩いてたら、変なディスプレイを発見! レディースの洋服やさんのマネキンにゴリラのマスク、麦わら帽子、サングラスにタバコをくわえたディスプレイだった。これが今年の夏のトレンド? こわい!
