Hong Kong: Repulse Bay

Repulse Bay is known to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong with its clean (and I mean, really clean) white sand. Even in the temperature of 17 degrees, there were some people soaking in the water (mostly whites).

Adjacent to the beach is a Chinese pavilion with two 10-metre-tall statues of traditional Chinese deities Kwun Yum and Tin Hau.

Not sure which was which... :P

Can't remember what was this again...

These ladies were throwing coins into the fish's mouth for good luck or something along that line - or at least attempting to!

God of Wealth - Run your hand from the head of the statue and along the arms to the pocket hanging on the left and then put your hand into your pocket, as if you're putting in money. Naturally, this ritual is supposed to bring you more wealth. :)

Buddha of Wealth & Prosperity - If you're hoping to get pregnant for the first time or have more children, run your hand along the right side of the statue, for baby girls and the left side for baby boys (obviously, I didn't try this :P).
