    So here is a pic, not a very good pic- the LIHKG pig is cuter in real life. I got off at the Golden Arcade exit and walked up the street towards a section where there was a TON of Chinese New Year stuff- it's all in one section of street, you will know when you are there, the whole street is New Year's. Didn't really look at street names, the stores also sell toys and stuffed animals- maybe 5 or 6 shops have Pepes and LIHKG pigs dressed up in Chinese clothes, most are 80 dollars, one store selling for 120. I went back today because I had to leave early yesterday, I bought a regular Pepe and a some New Year's stuff for the office. Sorry, didn't see your message until after I left or I would have written down the street name. Pretty sure it's the same section that sells tons of Christmas decorations as well.

Luo turned 65 in October, the normal retirement age, and on Dec. 28 – seven days before his appointment as director of the Liaison Office – he was named vice chairman of the Financial and Economic Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress, a position often held by retired officials.
    Question: What happened between Dec. 28 and Jan. 4? Answer: The New Year’s Day protest, which organizers reported was bigger than the June 9, 2019 march. That, following the unexpected electoral upset in late November, may have shocked Beijing into immediate action to relieve Wang of his post.
    Interesting speculation. While I have reservations about this hypothesis given the Reuters report foreshadowing changes at the Liaison Office, if there is any truth to the idea, not only did the New Year's Day march turnout not fit their narrative and require police interference, it may have prompted an actual change. Well done to the participants of the protest (and of course voters too)!

    A 17-year-old student has been allowed to return to Britain to resume his studies after he allegedly damaged a wall at the MTR Prince Edward station on New Year's Eve.
