Get your buns out!

It's the climax of the Cheung Chau Bun Festival today, the distinctive event that takes place every year on Cheung Chau island and involves villagers climbing huge towers loaded with buns and dispensing them to the waiting crowd below.

It's one of many distinctive, local festivals that I'd like to see one day. Despite going back to Hong Kong regularly, I seem to spend most of my time eating and shopping instead of actually exploring Hong Kong itself.
