Picture of the Day: A Scary Christmas

Harbour City shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui hit the jackpot this year when it brought the giant rubber duck to Hong Kong.

It easily won over fans compared to the inflated Stonehenge and excrement over at M+ in West Kowloon that is set to become the city's cultural hub.

Rubber duck paraphernalia is still sold in stores and a larger version of it went around Beijing.

However, Harbour City may have missed the boat this year in its Christmas decorations.

It banked on Disney characters set in globes, including Nemo, Alice in Wonderland, Pixie from Peter Pan and Stitch.

Perhaps the most popular one of the displays is Mike and Sulley from Monsters University to be the big winner, but it really was the minions in Despicable Me 2 that won the animation battle this year.

The hot item for Christmas at Toys "R" Us is the minion toy where you can poke their stomach and they jiggle their arms and make funny sounds. Can you imagine a child having more than one of them and constantly pushing their tummies? They would be entertained for hours...

Nevertheless, the minions were so popular in Despicable Me 2 that they may have their own movie, perhaps Harbour City will book them for next Christmas?
