Enjoying the fantastic skyline of Hong Kong Island with my girlfriend oh and an inflatable duck!!

The duck is a publicity stunt and was paid for by Harbour City Shopping Centre. It’s FREE to visit and take photos of the floating duck. They figured that attracting a load of people to the area in Springtime to snap the duck would bring in extra customers to the shopping centre and they’d make the money back. I dare say their right.

  • A good PR publicity stunt Maria. Unless the thing sinks, it’s hardly ever gonna attract bad publicity is it? You wont believe I had to fight through a crowd of people just to get my photos taken beside it!
