Christmas at the Canal District

    Hi Lyra, thank you for your post. This year is the 1st time we attempt to hold a big event through xmas. However, since PMH did not allow us to sell street clothes and food, we can only focus on handmade stuff and accessories tomorrow. The scale will be smaller, but with better decoration. We are hanging around 300 dream catchers, start from around 2PM. This year, we also invite the “Only rice is not enough” programme to sell charity stuff, starts from 3PM to 10PM. Please see the link below to have more info abt the programme.

    Again, tks for your feedback πŸ™‚
