Postcard From Hong Kong

Hospitals brace for a record number of babies in the Year of the Dragon and other news.

In Hong Kong:

  • Citizens angry with China took a full-page newspaper ad out, accusing their mainland neighbors of being "locusts." The Chinese were not amused, to say the least.
  • Hong Kong's restaurant scene boasts the cheapest Michelin starred restaurant in the world, a canteen that serves dumplings.
  • Airport traffic hit an all-time high in 2011.
  • And speaking of records - hospitals are bracing for a record number of babies, as parents try to conceive and deliver during the year of the dragon, a time of good luck.
