East Point City celebrates CNY with a festive indoor flower fair

East Point City celebrates CNY with a festive indoor flower fair

With the relaxation of quarantine and social distancing measures and the re-opening of the border with mainland China, East Point City, the flagship shopping mall of Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) in Tseung Kwan O, takes the lead to hold an indoor Lunar New Year Flower Fair from January 6th to 21st for 16 consecutive days. This marks the earliest flower fair the mall has ever held in its consecutive 17 years, as the Lunar New Year comes earlier than usual this year.
A variety of high-end orchids and festive flowers have been specially selected for this indoor flower fair, in which 3 special orchids in classic themes of the Year of the Rabbit, 3 high-end choices and 5 new varieties that are cultivated in Hong Kong will be first released exclusively.

Visitors should keep a look out for six specially decorated spots that are perfect for instagramming, as well as for geomancer MasterCloud to tell your fortune for the new year ahead.

Customers may also participate in free Japanese floral art tutorials and DIY workshops. A limited number of “Lucky Orchids” will be sold at a discounted price of HKD8.

With the scrapping of the whole range of social restrictions, there is an air of renewed confidence and optimism in the consumer market, and the prediction is that shoppers will be back in force with a vengeance. Yeung Siu-lung, the “Orchid King” and founder of Chiba Garden, feels positive about the market response to their orchids. “There is such a good vibe in the community that it should overflow into thriving business for us,” he enthuses. “New Year Flowers looks certain to be in higher demand as people are ready, willing and able to spend more now to decorate their homes and offices.”

His son Ryan Yeung, who helps with the orchid business, highlights the attraction of the local greenhouse-grown Japanese orchids he has been curating these years. “After adaptations to local climate, our Japanese orchids look even better than the native ones,” he notes. “And we have specially reserved the best ones for this flower fair.”

Sunny Lai, chairman of the Hong Kong Wholesale Florist Association Limited, says that despite the logistics costs having increased two to three times over the last few years, the average price of the flowers has not risen by the same level. “There is a good supply for the festive season and they represent very good value for money,” he remarks.
