This past Monday was the first day of the Chinese New Year of the Ox. The day before, as a friend and I were walking to a cinema to catch a Chinese New Year movie, we spotted a peculiar looking-furry creature on a busy Mongkok street.
As the crowds temporarily parted to reveal more of the centre of attention for the moment, we caught sight of its attire and got to realizing that the furry beast was meant to be an ox, albeit an anthromorphized version clad in festively approprate traditional Chinese costume! In truth, I hardly think it's the most beautiful or even realistic looking ox-thing out there but if it's good enough for all those who flocked to be photographed with it, I figure that it should be good enough to offer up for this week's Photo Hunt!
And to those of my fellow Photo Hunters who celebrate Chinese New Year: Kong Hei Fatt Choi to you! :)
