Hong Kong

Today, we will be visiting Hong Kong on the Trollbeads World Tour. Hong Kong is known to be a one of a kind, lively city, which has expansive beautiful skyline. Because of its high population and its lack of space hit has become the world’s most vertical city.

Hong Kong's culture is also been described as “East meets West.” The Chinese traditional cultures are often seen in their day-to-day lives and are passed down through the generations. The dragon and the phoenix , the traditional game of “Mahjong” and the Chinese auspicious writings and wordings are are just some of these traditions

The question to answer when viewing this short video is as follows: What hobby brings the couple together?

Let’s treasure the tour of Hong Kong!

Watch as Trollbeads introduce the World Tour Hong Kong collection in this short film:

Skyline

Anyone who visits or who has visited Hong Kong knows from experience that the skyline over the harbor is not only the most beautiful, but also famous views along the likes of the New York City Skyline. The Hong Kong skyline is truly breath taking and absolutely awe inspiring and is a a sight that is not to be missed. This glass bead truly represents this gorgeous skyline that Hong Kong has become known for and uses such vibrant colors of deep, dark blue and gold. And is truly one of my favorite glass beads of the World Tour Collection.

Dragon and Phoenix

In Chinese legend, the dragon and phoenix paired together represented the blissful or heavenly relationship between a husband and wife, as well as power or luck and good fortune too. Most things in ancient Chinese times were decorated with the dragon and phoenix patterns and were known to be connected with the emperor and empress. This charm could be perfect to represent marriage on one's Trollbead bracelet and showcases this symbolism very nicely with the intricate pattern of the dragon and phoenix intertwined on this silver bead.

Chinese Auspicious

There are four words in Chinese that are used during the Chinese New Year. "Yu" - "Yi" mean "your wish", and "Guck" - "Cher" mean "lucky" and "peace". During the Chinese New Year, if one want to impart the best of all blessings on another, the Chinese say "Yu Yi Guck Cher". Therefore, this silver charm could be given or purchased to mean good luck or good fortune on one's Trollbead bracelet for such occasions as a birthday, graduation or even a wedding and is highly fraught with chinese symbols on this silver charm too.

Mahjong "Fortune"

The game Mahjong, in China, is played when family and friends get together and is therefore a very popular game. It is a clever and fun way for people to interact in this country. It is well known that Mahjong "Fortune" represents wealth. This very classic and beautiful silver bead could therefore easily stand for fortune, as well as be a symbol for family and/or close friends when worn on one's bracelet and adorn quite beautifully with Chinese Symbols.

Concluding Hong Kong...

It has been my absolute pleasure to tour Hong Kong today in Trollbeads World Tour. If you watched the video, you should have the answer to the original question. I will not give it away here however. Join us for the next hub, when we tour the next country in the Trollbeads World Tour.

      I enjoyed reading this engaging hub as much as previous hubs in this amazing series. I visited Hong Kong 3 years ago and it is indeed a wonderful country. It looked beautiful during the night with its sparkling lights and all. The first trollbead looked gorgeous and I can see why it is one of your favorites. Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Awesome & Interesting. Voted up, pinned & socially shared

      Keith, I too once never heard of Trollbeads and that was only the beginning of this past year, but since I have gotten to know them, I really do just love their beads, because they are truly so colorful and fun to play around with to make different bracelet designs. Thanks for stopping by and commenting too!!
