If you happen to stroll into the lobby of The Peninsula hotel this week and come across this scene, there is no need to be alarmed.

No, you've not wandered into a scene from Wizard of Oz: Revenge of the Munchkins. It will simply be part of the rehearsals for the hotel's 75th anniversary charity gala next Thursday.

The event will feature 75 mini page boys and girls, aged four to eight, who are the children of staff or guests. No doubt many of these tykes will represent the next generation of Hong Kong's elite - and will probably get a whole lot more used to suiting up in tailor-made outfits.
