HK Brands & Products Expo 2004

Went to visit the 39th Hong Kong Brands & Products Expo (工展会)at Victoria Park with my parents. This was my first time visiting this annual big event of Hong Kong. From the documentaries on TV regarding this event, there used to have huge bottles (the balloons) of "oyster oil", "white flower oil", etc at the expo venue. But today, I didn't see any of those balloons, but nicely designed and decorated booths with lights and mobile figures.

The venue was separated into dry products area (for garments, jewelries, furniture, electronic appliances, cooking sauces, snacks, tea leaves, etc) with booths of some of the major, top Hong Kong brands, food area (with booths offering noodles, soups, drinks, etc where you can try a lot of the food before buying!), toys area, and 2 interior halls for electrical appliances, health instruments, medical stuff, beauty & health care products, etc.

Entering the expo from the entrance at Causeway Bay, we were surrounded by castles with jewelries, merry-go-round, ice-cream, etc. Like a carnival! ^o^ There were many people, but not too crowded. The atmosphere was like visiting the Lunar New Year's Flower Market!

My mum bought some clothes and some health "drugs" and drinks. My dad bought a new heater for the family, and a set of saws (the tools), which is a set of powerful saws that can cut wood, metal, thick fibre plastics, etc. (He likes tools!!) I bought a pair of socks (?? I wondered why I bought this at the expo :P) and some tea. We saw many people carrying trolleys for the shopping!! Trolleys filled with oyster oils, cooking oils, noodles, rice, drinks, etc. ^o^ I wish we could have one, so that we would not have to leave those nice+cheap noodles and soups behind.

P.S. I saw a girl wearing yukata to the expo… Probably a HK girl, although I only saw her back. The way she wore the yukata was really MESSY (MESSY also from the back). Yukata at December?? Something wrong with her? Didn't seem trendy or rave anyway. Haha.
