Handy desk pillow makes snooze news in sleepy city


In light of Hongkongers' hectic lifestyles and their knack of being able to fall asleep just about anywhere, British luxury bedding brand Sleep Naked has created a special desk pillow to enhance the quality of our mid-afternoon nap.

Embroidered with Sleep Naked on one side and the phrase "Everybody needs a dream in life" in Chinese on the other, the pillow is soft, comfortable and just the right size to plonk on your desk for a quick snooze. That's if you dare do so right under your boss' nose.

The fact that the gift landed on our desk towards the end of the week presents a dilemma, however. Although tired after a hard week at work, we don't want to slack off if it means we have to stay late in the office on a Friday night.

You could always lend it to someone you don't like in the office. Otherwise, use it elsewhere - such as on a public bench, the MTR or during a dull moment at the cinema.

Also celebrating Hongkongers' craze for anything coming with a "limited edition" tag, the desk pillows (HK$195) are available "while stocks last" and can be ordered at
