Tahun-tahun sebelumnya ribuan toko bunga dan penjual barang meriah menjajakan dagangan mereka kepada publik jelang Imlek. Namun tahun ini, pemerintah Hong Kong akan menerapkan pembatasan pada pasar semacam itu, yang hanya dapat berjalan dengan kapasitas setengah dan jam kerja yang dipersingkat.

Di tengah pandemi, salah satu pelanggan Yeung yang membeli bunga langsung ke berkebunannya, Pinky Chan, menilai tetap penting untuk menciptakan suasana meriah di tengah masa sulit.
