Tin Hau birthday

Since Sunday lion/dragon teams have been noisily parading through the streets on and near the waterfront of a little island in the South China Sea.

Hither and zither. . . morning, noon and night.

Why? To celebrate the birthday of Tin Hau (Goddess of the Sea).

Yes, but Tin Hau's birthday is 25 April this year.

Ah, but on this little island in the South China Sea we march to our own drum.

Sunday afternoon, 3:44pm

Last night, Hong Kong Observatory forecast "rain" and "thunderstorms" for Sunday. . . well, as they say around these parts, wah!

Around 3:30pm, day turned to night. If the street lamps had light sensors they'd have turned those lamps on. But they don't, so they didn't.

That didn't stop shopkeepers and householders reaching for their light switches as a couple of thunder claps later the heavens opened up. . . producing a torrential, and I mean torrential, downpour.

By 4pm it was all over.
