Hong Kong has the reputation of being a bustling, modern city replete with tall buildings and bright lights. It's certainly true that we have the most skyscrapers in the world, and while we love our city’s bright lights and modern flair, we also hold age-old superstitions just as dear, owing to our long and storied history.
