In case you missed it, it was Halloween on the weekend. Being a good Australian I've never quite understood Halloween, but after seeing how it's celebrated in Hong Kong* I do get that it can be a whole heap of fun. And we do want to be good neighbours so...when the call went out for candy givers in our building I put our hand up, threw some decorations on the door, stocked up on Kit Kats and dressed the dogs.
But apparently we're perhaps not such good neighbours after all. Apparently a lot of kids are petrified of small dogs wearing bee outfits, who knew? So whilst Ferdi was merrily answering the ring of the door bell with his happiest of happy dances (he adores children), a bunch of kids were running screaming down the hallway. One even cried, I think. Oh dear.
But then I figure Halloween is meant to be scary, right?
*Seriously, if you're ever in Hong Kong for Halloween, get to Lan Kwai Fong early and settle in for a night of amazing people watching. The place will be jammed with all kinds of folk, of all ages and nationalities, dressed in all kinds of costumes. Fun!
