It's That Time of Year...

Or is it?  My brain is having trouble compreheding that we really are in mid-late November and 2014 is sneaking up on us like a panther silently, hungrily, stealthily stalking its prey. 

Wait, what?  Ok, maybe that analogy did not make sense.

The point is, suddenly Hong Kong is bedecked in Christmas decorations.  Poor Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, gets no air time whatsoever out here in Asia.  It jumps from Halloween into Christmas almost instantaneously.
As you guys may recall, I love the holiday display that the Landmark puts together because, much like the mall itself, it is always over the top.  This year, they went for a Rube Goldberg* pinball display. 

 It does not show up as well in pictures but if you look closely you can see the small silver ball gliding along. Cool, right?

*Do you know what a Rube Goldberg machine is?  I had never heard the term until Michael mentioned it upon seeing this display.  For your next cocktail party conversation; you're welcome.
