Love is in the Rain
Valentine's Day is a big day in Hong Kong -- the streets are flooded with bouquets in the hands of either delivery persons or proud young ladies with starry eyes. I did a little bit of detective thing and followed this guy for a while and he was shopping for flowers in the rain, asking around and checking if delivery can be made promptly. Half a dozen of red roses costs about US$50 from streetside florists.
I guess everybody has a number of favourite love songs but if I have to choose one I would choose Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight". What's your favorite?
