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
