You Like, You Buy Vol 45

There's nothing worse than having a bout of temperamental weather to come along and stymie one's best-laid fashion plans. Seems like someone up there is suffering from a bad case of PMS. In times like these, you'd best rely on an umbrella if you want to make any sort of fashion statement.

While umbrellas are plentiful and ready for the buying in Hong Kong, chances are that the ones you come across will all come from a little place known as Hop Hing Umbrella ( Listed below are some of the most popular models in Hop Hing's collection and the type of people they cater to.

For the person who buys a new one each time another building goes up along the harbourfront

For the child whose favourite Batman episode is the one where Robin defeats the evil Klansmen by getting them all tangled up in his bright blue cape

For the moron who feels the need to slap a picture of something insufferably cute on everything they carry, use at work or have sex on

For the person who wants to blend in with their camo capris

For the wildlife enthusiast

However none of the above umbrellas are designed for sharing, and as such are relegated to use by those doomed to walk the streets in soggy solitude. For a practical solution, co-dependent couples will need to check out where love means never having to get wet.

I'm disappointed in you. Aren't these popular in HK?

the two person umbrella rocks! i mean, think of the jostling and eye-poking it would save.
