All along Flower Market Street in the Mong Kok area of Kowloon, Hong Kong are fascinating shops exploding with blooms, cacti, grasses and anything else that grows. Nonetheless at the end of the vibrant street is a little shop packed with holiday decorations. In the first part of October Halloween decor was rather proudly on display for the passing tourists to purchase. My favorite piece was this old label bottle of “Bat Wing Extract” tucked behind skull shot glasses and next to display dishes.

 

 

 

The Halloween vibe was carried out onto the street by these mysterious fruit/vegetable/some kind of growing thing on display. Linda quickly dubbed them “Freddy Krueger hands” and Freddy Krueger they shall ever be in my mind. Apparently the fruit is actually called “Buddha’s Hand” and is mostly used for its aromatic qualities. Thanks, One Piece Discoveries! It was nice to see a little Halloween whimsy in Hong Kong.

Now if only I could think of a costume…
