How about some more good news to go along with the decline in new cases of COVID-19 in Hong Kong?
We’re talking about staycation and dining packages that are enticing us out of our hidey-holes. I mean, we’re not going anywhere else for awhile, so let’s explore this great city of ours, support local businesses and get some crazy-good deals while we’re at it.
