Back from HK

I was at Hong Kong last week. Was told by my colleague who just came back that it's 13-16c deg there. Well my wife thought it wasn't that cold, but I brought along 3 winter clothing. It hit's HK record low 10c on 9th Jan 09. My god, I can't imagine single digit. Basically, we shop, and shop and shop all the way :) Below are some photos
