A stallholder enjoys brisk trade in inflatable pigs last night at the Lunar New Year fair in Victoria Park. Elsewhere, shoe shops rushed to sell their stock, restaurants did a roaring trade and florists battled the bargain hunters. Everywhere there were crowds as hundreds of thousands put thoughts of work and school behind them and prepared for the city's most important holiday and the coming of the Year of the Pig. About 386,000 people left the city yesterday, half of them through Lo Wu.
